Year One were very excited to visit the The Wyllyotts Museum on Wednesday afternoon as part of their Topics on ‘ Toys’ and ‘The local area’. The children walked to and from The Museum very sensibly and talked about all they could see on their way! Members of The Historical Society greeted us and took the children around the Museum to see the various items on display. The museum has a wonderful range of Novelty telephones that the children could interact with as well as a collection of board games, soft toys and dolls. A special thanks to Mabel who brought in her 100 year old doll that belonged to her Nan. The Museum kindly donated each child with a goody bag and a Quiz to take home. Thank you to our Parent helpers for coming with us. If you are ever passing the Museum we recommend you pop in and see all that is has to offer!
As part of Anti Bullying week we have been looking at and discussing our differences. Year One took part in a Circle time learning how to be respectful listeners. We played the game Fruit Salad to practise our listening skills and to support children in seeing their similarities and differences. On Thursday the children worked in groups to discuss different scenarios where people were treated differently, they had to decide what they would do in that situation to make it right and presented their views to the class.
Mathletics – due Friday.
Handwriting and letter formation worksheets. These do not need to come back to school.
Reading – 5-10 minutes a day.
Nativity – In your child’s book folder you will find a letter regarding their role and costumes they will need for our Nativity this year. Their lines will be sent home for them to practice next week.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Mrs Poyiadzis & Mrs Barnes
