We were sad to say goodbye to our beautiful chicks this week as they have been such a wonderful learning experience for the children. From learning about life cycles, to showing courage and sensitivity in holding them to inspiring writing, we have loved our fluffy visitors! We’re looking forward to observing the development of the caterpillars over the next week as they start to make their cocoons. In maths we have been learning about halves, finding half of different shapes and numbers by splitting them into 2 equal parts.
- Swimming - Thank you to our wonderful class reps for co-ordinating the volunteer timetable for our swimming lessons which begin next Friday 17th May. A huge thank you to the parents who have already agreed to come and help, if you are interested in volunteering please speak to your class rep or your child’s class teacher. In the days before they swim, we will walk down to show the children where the pool and changing rooms are so that they have an understanding of what to expect.
- Bay Pond - We are looking forward to our trips to Bay Pond on Monday 20th and Wednesday 22nd May. We will be leaving shortly after 9am so please be at school promptly for 8.45am so that the children can use the toilet before we set off! Whatever the weather, layers and a waterproof coat are a good idea as we are outside all day including lunchtime. Long sleeves, leggings or long trousers and strong shoes are essential as there are nettles around the area. If it is a wet day, the children can change into their wellies once they get to school. Please do remember to cancel your child’s lunch online if you usually order it ahead of time for them. Thank you to those parents who have offered to help with the trips. We are anticipating a great day in the beautiful reserve, consolidating our learning about the world around us.
With best wishes,
