Happy Half Term Purple Class
Well done Purple Class for a successful half term during which you have been working hard with your independence and cooperation. We started this year with the exciting project of ‘Building a Business’ where we developed our very own business ‘Blackwell Biscuits!’ This certainly developed your communication and cooperation skills by working as a team, designing, making and then packing your final product. You should feel very proud of yourselves for raising the money for a local foodbank, where you have helped families who may not have much. Thank you to all families who supported your ‘Blackwell Biscuits’ business.
We have finished our ‘Our World’ topic where we enjoyed reading and listening to different folk tales from other cultures, being resilient to create a collaborative piece of textile artwork to display for all to see in our main entrance and learned all about how Muslims live. It was lovely during this time to hear your own views and your developing respect for others has been a highlight of this half term. This learning is important to help you understand the wider world, diversity and the life experiences of others.
What a busy and hardworking half term it has been. You deserve a well-earned rest over the next week. Enjoy plenty of time with loved ones, at home or away and some time for a little bit of reading and mental maths practise. It would be great to continue learning to tell the time at home – in all four quarters of the clock and then in 5 minute intervals when you are ready. Lots of you found this tricky last week so why not brush up?
We look forward to welcoming you back on Monday 27th February with a new dilemma set all the way back in 900 AD!
