Welcome back after our May half term


The children have really enjoyed learning about minibeasts. During this topic, we have seen our caterpillars turn into butterflies and some of our tadpoles have grown legss. All five caterpillars turned into a butterfly and we let them go on Thursday 9 June 2011. 

In the last few weeks, the children have been learning about Africa and they have enjoyed making African animals from clay. 
 
Phonics Support

 

 

To support our teaching of phonics, a website you may wish to visit with your child is www.phonicsplay.co.uk On this website you will find a parent section as well as lots of games your children love playing in school...especially the pirate or dragon game. To ensure your child is practising the correct level, ask them who their phonics teacher is and select the correct phase from the options.

Miss Duong- phase 2
Mrs Higgins - phase 3
Mrs Shelton - phase 4
Mrs Riley - phase 5

 

Star of the week

 

Each week Mr Higgins and Miss Duong choose a child to be 'star of the week.' This is a very important job for the whole week as they do lots of important jobs like taking the register to the office and doing helpful tasks in the classroom. On Monday the chosen children talk to their group about themselves and show their favourite toys and important photographs which are special to them. This time is very special to the children as they build confidence in talking in front of their friends. Letters are sent out on Fridays to the chosen children for the following week.
 
Minibeast Photos
We went outside to pick leaves and twigs for our cacoons to help build a butterfly home. We also went digging for minibeasts with the help of some Year 6 children. The children really enjoyed this and the were extremely well behaved. Well done class 1!
