This week in Year 1!

This week has been extremely busy for our lovely year ones. Four performances of our nativity, a fabulous pyjama party and Circus Berzercus today! 

Thank you to all of the children and parents for their continued support with everything we do in school and we really hope you enjoyed the performances. We think the children did such a brilliant job. 

Just a reminder that next week (on Wednesday) we have our Christmas party and letters will be coming home detailing an item of food that we would like the children to bring in to contribute. The children can bring in party clothes in a separate bag to change in to. 

Enjoy looking at a few of the lovely photos below of our nativity:

 

Art attack in Year 5!

Year 5 have been incredibly busy creating a range of art pieces linked to our topic surrounding the Middle East. Watercolour silhouettes and geometric patterns have been lovingly crafted throughout all the classes. The children have been so engaged and can’t wait to design more next week.  

Well done for all the children’s efforts with their reading this term. We are really impressed with the variety of books the children are encountering, and it’s been wonderful to see the development of book talk throughout the year group. We wonder what marvellous reads will be completed over the Christmas holidays….

Next week, we will be celebrating the children’s work by treating them to some special activities. Our red badge treat will happen on Monday , Carols in the Concert after school on Tuesday and board games on our final day (Thursday.) Don’t forget to bring in your board games of choice!

One more week to go! Have a fantastic weekend. 

Stickman

Such a busy week but we have made it!

We hope that you managed to see at least one of our nativity performances this week. We are so proud of your children’s amazing achievements. They are such a credit to yourselves, the school AND what enthusiasm for singing they have. It’s hard to believe that the children are only 3 – 5 years old!

Despite a busy week of acting, we have also been exploring the Stick Man story. We have been creative at the art table and made our own stickmen using lollipops, googly eyes and pipe cleaners.  

Our making area has been turned into a Santa’s workshop. The busy elves have been designing and constructing toys; using a variety of materials; and have also been making and sending cards. The busy atmosphere in the work shop has been delightful.

Today, we all watched and enjoyed ‘Circus Bezercus’ as a special treat for all the children’s hard work over the term. The roars of laughter could be heard as the act juggled, did tricks and even invited some children up onto the stage to be their helpers! 

Next week:

  • Monday: Christmas party. Please can your child come into school wearing their party clothes. Please also ensure that they have sensible shoes and a warm coat.
  • Tuesday: Christmas lunch

Kents Cavern Trip

Year 3 had a great day at Kents Cavern. Our trip really helped us to put all our learning about Prehistoric Britain into context. We had fun on the Stone Age trail finding clues about Prehistoric life and animals and  got to handle artefacts, search for gemstones and explore the caves. It was a brilliant day! A big thanks to all the adults who helped on the trip.
