Ms Huntington: May 2016
It's been a very busy two weeks in Base 1! We enjoyed listening to the story of Noah's Ark and we counted in two's as the animals went into the ark. We had the challenge of making an ark, but we had to make sure it floated and was waterproof too! How many animals did your ark hold before it sank?
Mrs Tyrie has been playing music, singing and teaching us how to use the instruments, very noisy but lots of fun!
Mr Clarke came as our Mystery Reader and the children loved listening to a 'daddy' read to us. We also enjoyed a visit from our reading buddies, it's been a long time since we paired up to share books together.
What a fantastic day we had on Friday. Lots of explorers came to school armed with binoculars, cameras and wonderful safari hats. We had a day outdoors, Mrs Parsons arranged a challenge for Base 1, they had to collect natural items from around the school grounds according to the number card they picked.
Some of us became an author of our own animal adventure story, we did the beginning of the story last week and next week we will be writing the middle part of our story.
On Monday we will be preparing for our visit to Chester zoo. We will plan our route around the zoo and decide which animals we would like to see.
Chester Zoo Trip Reminder:
Please come to school at 8.45 so that we can be on the coach and leave by 9am.
Please make sure that your child has a backpack, as they will have to carry their lunch around the zoo.
Disposable packaging is the best so that they can throw away their rubbish, including drinks containers.
School Uniform to be worn, but please add accessories dependent on the weather eg sun hat, waterproof coat, comfortable shoes, waterproof shoes, warm jumper or cardigan.
No money required.
Thank you and we look forward to an enjoyable day out.
Thank you for all your support with reading at home, it is very much appreciated and it makes such a huge difference.
Ms Huntington, Mrs Parsons & Mrs Wimpenny.
