Welcome to Foundation!
Our learning last week ( 19th-23rd February):
This week we completed completed some lovely independent writing about different types of animals. We measured objects around the classroom and ordered each other and objects to see which was shortest to longest and shortest to tallest.
We began our new "Big Picture" topic called "Animal Crackers" and learnt all about each others pets. We also learnt how to draw a cat using a You Tube video.
Finally we made rockets with pop bottle and learnt how to program Jack the mouse and Ranger the dog.
Next week we will have a visit from a vet and his pet dog and the following week a visit from a member of Staff from Knowl Hill and her pet horse. If your child has an alergy to any of these animals please let a member of the school staff know.
Junk Modelling Area
This term I am hoping to revamp our Junk Modelling Area. If you have ant unwanted yoghurt pots, cardboard tubes, small boes, vegetable spread pots, string or ribbon all donations would be very greatfully recieved.
Please can I remind you that Reading books will only be changed on a Monday unless your child is absent or it is a bank holiday. Please can you write a comment to say that you have read with your child's book with them, unless the book has been read on 3 different occasions the reading book will not be changed. Many Thanks
A huge well done to all of our pupils for taking part in the class rounds of the Eisteddfod poetry competition. It was very tough choosing the class winners as the standard was very high. A big congratulations to Ben and Amelie who are through to the final at Cox Green on Wednesday 6th March at 6pm.
