Summer Term 2 Week 1 w.b. 06.06.2022
It was lovely to welcome the children back after their holiday and was great to see so many had generously collected resources for our busy week based on Pentecost learning. The children had themed days with learning focused on water, wind and rain with the Friday ending in celebrating Pentecost with a visit from Fr Fidelis, a Spiritan chaplain at NBS, and Fr. Shaun who celebrated school mass. Then the children enjoyed an ice lolly and a run around on the field.
I was so amazed at their boat designs and products on Tuesday. Their brief was to create a boat that would float for at least 30 seconds caring mini marshmallows. They all floated safely so there were no soggy marshmallows and very proud children!
The children and Mrs Moccia enjoyed the learning on capacity this week and got a bit wet filling and comparing different containers. Mathletics has been set to support this. We will continue with our ‘measure’ topic next week in maths and would be grateful if anyone can donate any unused ribbons so the children can measure and compare them.
Due to phonics screening and swimming on Wednesday, we were unable to complete our wind chimes so will try to complete next week. Mrs Moccia taught the children about fire safety this week and they have some home learning to support this.
The children did so well in their Phonics Screening this week. They were confident in using their skills to sound out and blend the words together. Results will be sent home with their end of year reports.
Next Tuesday you are invited to join us for Sports Day at 1:45pm and then at 3:15pm you may collect your child to visit their current and then new classrooms. This is not a formal consultation or a book look as the books and reports will be sent home at the end of the term.
P.E. kits for Tuesday (Sports day) and Wednesday (swimming) next week.
Enjoy the weekend,
