Ms Huntington: May 2015
Wow what an exciting week!
At the beginning of the week we finished our beautiful Handa's Surprise story books. We are very proud to be authors! In number work we have been learning about sharing and doubling. We had a great time in our new library on Wednesday we enjoyed reading all the wonderful books we have in there.
Thursday was such an exciting day as we took a flight to Cape Town! It was great to see all the children ready for our adventures, thank you to all the Parents for your help with their packing!! The children waited patiently as they started to Check In and receive their boarding cards and have their passports checked. This was efficiently done by our amazing air stewardesses, Mrs Goodwin and Mrs Parsons. Then it was off to Security to have suitcases checked and answer some security questions. The passengers found their seats and Mrs Goodwin gave an important safety talk, checked seat belts and then we were ready for Take Off. The in flight meal was served, a drink and a biscuit and soon we had landed for a fun packed day in Cape Town. The children enjoyed weaving, baking chapatis, making clay animals and designing some lovely African necklaces. The children also joined in with singing African songs. Thank you to Mrs Greenhough and Mrs Peek who worked hard all day to ensure the clay animals looked so real!
What an amazing day!
Please can you continue to send in your recycling items, the children get so much learning out of making models.
We are still continuing with our 'Mystery Readers' so please come and book slot. If you have not had a 'go' yet then it would be a lovely surprise for your child if you appeared on the Teachers chair ready to read a story!
The children are really enjoying this topic if you have any animal books then please send them into school.
We are having some really interesting discussions about items in nature that the children bring into school, please encourage your child to look out for things as they are out and send them in for us to look at.
Thank you too all the Foundation Stage parents who have added comments and photographs to the Learning Book, they have been fantastic to look at. If you need any further support then please come and have a chat.
We are all very excited about our trip to Knowsley on Tuesday, look out for some great photographs. All our work this week will be about our trip and learning interesting facts about animals.
Great excitement ahead!!
