Hello Everyone!

Welcome back after the half term break. It has been lovely hearing about what the children have been up to during the holidays! I had a fabulous break spending it with my family and visiting Norway. I couldn't help but think about the children and brought back a fairy tale story called ' The Troll and the Wicked Witch'. Base 2 have enjoyed sharing the story with me this week and comparing it to our famous fairy tales, such as Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White.

We began the week in literacy focusing on the character of Mr Grinling and writing detailed descriptions using the illustrations from our class story to help us. We linked these descriptions with art and using watercolours we painted our very own Mr Grinling portraits. Our attention then switched to the pesky seagulls who keep stealing Mr Grinling's lunch- we have created wanted posters, written a help letter to the other lighthouse keepers and also written our own cunning plans to get rid of the seagulls once and for all! Next week we will be focusing on instructions within our writing.

In maths we have had fun learning about directions and positional language: right, left, forward, backwards, between as well as the amount of a turn. The children have worked in small groups to direct each other on chalk drawn roads on the playground. We have also pretended to be spinners in the classroom turning a quarter turn, half turn and full circle. In our starters this week we have been focusing on counting in 2's, 5's and 10's and challenging ourselves with various sequencing and missing number games. Next week we will be focusing on fractions of shape and number.

Base 2 have been starting to learn about the 'Titanic' this week in history- writing questions and sharing what they would like to know about the great ship. The children are very interested in finding our more about why the ship sank if it was meant to be unsinkable and why it was called the Titanic.

In music this week we have been learning some sea shanties, including the famous 'Roll the Old Chariot', we are working hard on the dynamics and pitch of our voices and hope to perform a sea shanty before the end of the school year. We also took the opportunity to write our own sea shanties based on the famous tune which the children have really enjoyed.

More next week but until then enjoy the sunshine!
Miss Davies

A very sincere thank you from all the team at Wrenbury for your kind words and lovely gifts and all your support for myself and the team at Wrenbury across the school year. The children had a wonderful last day in school.
