What a lovely first week back at school we have had! It is so lovely to see you all refreshed after the holidays and welcome some new members of Base 2 to School. The children have all showed their kindness to one another already by helping each other out in class and at playtimes.

We started the year by creating our class rules so that we have a fair and happy classroom where we can all enjoy our learning. These rules were well thought out and have helped to create our positive classroom environment. My favourite rule that the children came up with was that we all promise to smile! We followed this by writing letters to ourselves, writing down what we are good at now and what we would like to improve this year. We then measured out a piece of string that was the height of us and wrapped our letters up with it so that we can compare these at the end of the year.

Our Learning Journey theme this year is War and Peace and we kick-started our topic by making some poppies to remember all those who fought in the wars. We created a poppy through using ripped pieces of paper that were different shades of red and green. The children listened carefully to the instructions and then were able to confidently create their poppies which look fantastic on the walls. We also made some paper case poppies, which we needed to paint with red paint and cut out a black circle. We will be sticking these together and displaying them on Monday.

Next week we will be beginning our lessons and our days will be more structured. We will be beginning our Maths and Literacy by showing me what they can do. Phonics and spelling lessons will begin next week and spellings will be sent home on Monday. During the afternoons we will be starting to develop our understanding of war and peace by beginning with Evacuees.

Well done to all of the children that have been reading at home, any amount of reading at home will support the children's progress with reading. Let's keep up the hard work!
