Parents as Partners           

Week Commencing: 16th March 2020

 Dear Parents/Carers,

We have done some lovely learning for Science week and the children have really enjoyed it. We had to free animals from ice and predict which method of melting the ice would be the quickest, we had to observe the world around us an find items to match the colours of the rainbow and we had to do an experiment and test which liquids made bubbles with our bubble wand and record the results. Thank you to those parents who attended our science morning – I hope you enjoyed it as much as I know the children did.

Next week we will be doing the following:

Literacy – we will be introducing our new narrative immersion text ‘Paper Dolls’. We will meet Tilly who will tell us about her paper dolls and we shall draw some of our own.

Letters and Sounds – We will be joining in with the rhyming book ‘Oi Duck-Billed Platypus!’ as we identify the rhyming words.

Mathematics – We will be focusing on separating a group of objects (to 5) in different ways but recognising that the total is still the same.

Little Reminders:

  • Spare clothes: your child should always have some on their peg, but if your child has used some of our Nursery spare clothes please could you wash and return them ASAP as our stocks are getting low because people are not returning them. Thank you.

Important dates:

  • Parents eveningThursday 2nd April 3:15-6:00 – look for a sign-up sheet nearer the time.
  • Easter service in church Friday 3rd April at 2:00
  • Break up for Easter Friday 3rd April. We return to school on Monday 20th April.


Thank you for your help and support
