Classrooms

Both of the classrooms provide a calm environment and encourage the children to be independent; the children are able to  find their own resources to support their learning.

Each classroom has a reading corner with a mixture of fiction and non-fiction books for the children to enjoy.

Each child has their own tray where they can keep things to take home and hat/gloves when the weather gets colder. They also have their own peg for their coat during the winter months.

School Council

Every class has at least one school councillor to help share their classes’ views and make changes across the school.

Experiences

My Trip to Elvaston Castle

Last week, we went to Elvaston Castle.

First, we walked through damp and dark forest. We identified different trees by looking at their leaves. we saw an Oak tree, a Pine tree and a holly bush.

 

Next, we looked at pattern on the trunks of the trees. We used our crayons to do bark rubbings.

After that, we stopped for lunch under the pine trees. Then we played with the parachute, duck duck goose and Simon says.

Finally, we walked back to the coach. On the way, we listened to a story. It was an amazing day!

Thing You Need To Know

It is important that all children continue to practise their learning at home to remember and embed what they have learnt in school that week. For Helpful Hollies and Lively Laurels home learning will be given to the children on a Friday and must be returned by the following Wednesday. The home learning will alternate between Maths and English.

If children are struggling or you are unsure how to support your child, please message your child’s class teacher on Class Dojo.

Children will also have the option of completing a home learning topic grid, where they can choose different activities to do at home. Children will earn points. 75 points earns them a prize and a certificate at the end of the half term. Each time your child completes a piece of home learning, please bring it into school so it can be displayed.

PE will be every Wednesday afternoon. Please send your child to school in their PE Kit. Please be mindful of the weather.
