Red Class Friday Fanfare 24.05.24


Hello Red Class Families,

First of all, ‘get well soon’ to any poorly Red Class friends. We hope you can rest and recover over the holidays so you’re ready for Sport’s Day on the first Friday back after half term.

This week, in Phonics, we recapped tricky words (like, have, said, were, some) and read a whole host of one and two syllable words. In Maths, we used an analogue clock to find o’clock and half past times. The children are ready for Year 1! It was all about painting in Art lessons as we discovered how to use a paintbrush in different ways and how to mix colours. We also found time to learn and perform a poem, ‘Jumping Panda’, before creating simple versions.

We completed our Fun Run challenge. We managed to run more than 28 laps of the playground. Well done, Red Class. Little legs can run very far! Please send any donations into school after half term in a named envelope.

After the half term break, we’ll start a new topic, ‘Victorians’, and we’ll swap learning partners. This is the half term where the children will visit their new classroom and meet their new teacher. Parents will be invited into school to ‘meet the teacher’ and to find out about Year 1. We’ll be preparing the children in PSHE lessons as we talk about changes and how to cope with change. Can you believe we’re talking about Year 1? It feels like only yesterday the children were walking in for their first day at school. We also have two trips to look forward to and a lot of learning before we wave goodbye!

Wishing everyone a lovely holiday whether you’re at home or away.

Best wishes,

Mrs Webb and Team Red Class xxx
