Hello Red Class Families,

This week, the children received some exciting post from African Promise. They were awarded a certificate for their hard work raising money for the charity and a card to explain how their donation would help. Well done Team Red. It was lovely to read the message from African Promise:

“Thanks to your efforts we could provide food for more than 1,250 meals which means each of you has helped to make sure a child your own age in Kenya will receive a lunchtime meal for around 45 days.”

This week, we started our ‘Deep in the Jungle’ topic. It was a busy week learning songs and poems, practising animal yoga poses and making animal masks ready for our class assembly You Tube video. We used our painting and paper craft skills to create a jungle scene for our display too.

During the last few weeks, in Phonics and Maths, we will consolidate our learning from the year. Finding 1 fewer than a given number to 20 and working on ordinal numbers will be a prime focus as this is where most children need a little bit of help. We will also revisit the digraphs and trigraphs covered this year. Handwriting sessions will focus on capital letter formation and number formation until the end of term. Home handwriting books will finish at ‘z’. So, you can keep your books at home if they’re up to date. Please send your handwriting book into school if you need any letters. Well done to all those children working hard on their letter formation at home as it really makes a difference in the classroom.

During the last few weeks, Red Class participated in the Worcestershire Summer School Games. This was a virtual competition and all schools competed on their own school site. The events were themed around the Paralympics and we used a range of skills including bouncing, dribbling and striking a ball. We look forward to hearing the overall results from across Worcestershire, next week.

Thank you for supporting our Summer Fair. If you were unable to attend the fair, but you would like to buy your child’s produce (lavender pillow), please send £2.50 into school in a named envelope.

Finally, we waved goodbye to Miss Barber today. We wish her every success with her own class in September. Goodbye and good luck Miss Barber. Miss Coyle also joined us in the summer term for some experience in Early Years. We wish Miss Coyle well in her new adventures as a teacher too.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend. I know where I’ll be at 8pm on Saturday (although sadly not in Rome) 😊

Mrs Webb and Team Red Class xxx
