Happy Half Term Blue Class

Hello Everyone,

Very well done Blue Class for working so hard this half term during our 'Take a Trip' and 'Sport Around the World' topics. It has been fascinating learning where you've further developed your understanding of the wider world and its diversity and investigated aspirational people from near and far. Bell boating, creating electrical circuits with buzzers and bulbs, showcasing your learning with the rest of the school with your PowerPoint presentations, finding out what decimal numbers are and exploring the Olympics with friends from Astley Primary School are just a few of the headlines from this half term. Phew... we'll all need a good rest next week.

Thank you to your grown ups at home for supporting you in so many ways this half term from encouraging quality homework each week, working on targets shared at parent consultations and helping to develop your independence. Parental support is greatly appreciated and it makes such a difference to academic progress and learning behaviours.

Have a lovely half term and, fingers crossed, some warm, sunny weather makes an appearance. Keep enjoying lots of reading and times table games over the next few days too. Your times table fluency and accuracy have greatly improved as a result of lots of practise both at home and in school so keep going during the holiday so you'll be ready and raring to go for our special times table quiz during the first two weeks back

Have fun, keep safe and we'll see you after the half term break.

Love from Miss Townsend and Miss Kuriger xxx

Happy Half Term Blue Class

Well done Blue Class for another successful half term during which you continued to work hard with resilience and enthusiasm. We kicked off 2024 with an exciting 'Blackwell Film Festival' topic where you created your own films linked to all of your learning. You proudly shared them with Yellow Class who were very impressed with your film making skills. 

We finished the half term with a 'What's special?' topic where we enjoyed reading an award-winning text, The Rhythm of Rain by Grahame Baker-Smith, and created your own picture books for our Red Class friends to help them learn how special water is. During this topic we also learned about the Hindu faith. Our trip to the Hindu temple was certainly a fascinating one particularly being able to observe many rituals, see artefacts and hear stories learned about in school. Visiting such a place, for many of us, was very different and new but the respect and curiosity shown by all of you was noted by our guide and other visitors there. These experiences are important in helping you to understand how diverse our local area is and how such diversity helps make our community and wider world an interesting place to live.

It has been a busy and hardworking half term so have a good break this week. Enjoy time at home or away, with lots of time to rest and play. A little bit of reading and times table practice would be really helpful too so that you continue where you left off when you return. We look forward to seeing you on Monday 19th February where we will set sail on the Seven Seas and learn about some swashbuckling adventures!

Be safe, helpful and kind and we'll see you all soon.
