Lots of learning and fun in the sun!

Date: 12th May 2024 @ 7:26pm

This week we have been talking about being a good friend. We have been partners with different friends for lots of activities this week and the children have worked hard to share, take turns and use kind words.

We have created a bike wash and have had lots of fun cleaning our school bikes. We have been looking at money and the value of 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p. It costs 8p to have your bike washed!

We have created a stage in our playground and the penguins have been singing, dancing and putting on shows all week.

In maths we have been doing simple additions. We have found that by adding we always make our number bigger. We had fun carrying out 'Big Maths' 

Next week we will be starting our road safety work. We will do this learning in the classroom, in our playground and we will also go onto School Lane in small groups. 

Please continue to read the school reading book at home each day. New sounds are now being introduced in phonics so it is very important that the children have the opportunity to practise these in their reading books to help them to master and remember the new sounds. 

We are still collecting batteries in school - please send them in the school book bag.

On Thursday it is our class enterprise. The penguins are making smoothie ice pops. They will sell them after school in the quad area. Please collect your penguin from the quad area (picnic benches) after school. If possible the penguins will stay for 5/10 mins after the hometime bell to sell their ice pops.


Reading books are always changed on a Tuesday and Wednesday morning. However, this week reading books will be changed on Friday morning. Please continue to send reading books and the reading record book in each day so we can monitor progress or any problems.

Thank you
