Dear Skylark Parents,
We have had a lovely first week back at school. We have been working with the children in understanding the importance of wellbeing. They have had a fabulous week with lots of lovely activities. We are also very proud of every single Skylark as they have completed the Year 1 Phonic Screening Test. Every child did their absolute best, amazing!
Looking ahead to this term we will be continuing with our ‘Who do we share our island with topic for the next two weeks, then we will move on to learn the Oceans of the world.
As part of this topic we will look at what lies beneath our oceans. A lovely study of sea life which will enhance with lots of lovely art and DT. We will then look at what is happening to our seas because of mankind. We will look specifically at single use plastic and sustainable alternatives.
We will read Dear Greenpeace together and will end up writing our own letters which the children will share with Mrs Bone and the rest of the school. We will send letters home to you to read too. I am hoping to publish a class letter in the parish magazine later in the term.
Spellings will continue next week alongside some handwriting practice sheets. These do not have to come back to school but are for practice purpose only.
Welcome back everyone,
We are so enjoying being in our beautiful, newly extended classroom. There is an enormous sense of calm and well being. We are so proud of the Super Skylarks for their ability to have managed the limitations that were involved in being displaced - they managed enormously well.
Roll on sunny days. We are very excited to be beginning swimming next week (commencing 8th May). Thank you to the parents who have agreed to support with this.
A little note to let you all know that we had a truly wonderful trip to Beaulieu. The children were exceptionally well behaved, showing a super level of interest in the exhibits and asking pertinent questions. We were blessed with good weather and were able to experience a ride on an bus and we all thoroughly enjoyed going on mono rail.
Well done super Skylarks, we all had a fantastic day.
Mrs Edgar, Mrs Stacey, Mrs Jenkins and Mrs Nowell
