Ms Huntington: April 2015
We hope you had a very enjoyable and fun packed Easter holiday. The children in Base 1 have come back to school looking very grown up and excited to learn.
Thank you to all those parents who helped their child make a 3D animal model over the holidays. Some of the animals look so real, well done everyone. There is still time to make one if you haven't done so already.
The children got a nice surprise when they returned from the holidays. We have some new furniture and resources that will help us with our learning.
We had a lovely afternoon with Mrs Peek who came into school this week to help us plant some summer flowers in our outdoor area. Thank you, they look beautiful.
Our topic for this term is called 'Amazing Animals'. The children have discussed what things they would like to learn about animals. We are starting the term learning about African animals which links to the book Handa's Surprise. This week the children have tasted the different fruits from the story and decided which they liked best. They made a block graph of their favourite fruits. We are learning a Handa song and we will add some instruments in as we sing the song next week.
Please encourage your child to find out any information they can about animals and maybe write some facts down to bring to school. Any animal books will be most welcome. We have asked your child to bring in a soft toy pet animal as we have set up a 'Vet' role play area. The children are pretending to bring their pets to see the Vet! Please do not send in 'special' soft animals that they may miss at bedtime!
This term our PE day is Thursday. Our PE will be outside for most of this term. Please can you make sure your child has suitable footwear and that their PE kit is kept in school.
We are all very excited about the new term and we look forward to having a lot of fun as we learn lots of new things.
Thank you for all your support
Ms Huntington & Mrs Parsons.

Base 5 it has been simply wonderful having your lovely faces back in the classroom, all refreshed and eager to learn.
