Hello Red Class,
Thank you for a lovely first week back at school. You all looked refreshed and ready to start learning again and you certainly enjoyed your Christmas holiday. This week, we started our new topic, "Off to Scotland." We explored some of the adventures of a little girl called Katie Morag. On our very first day at school, we were visited by Mrs McColl. She helped us to find out about Katie Morag and where she lives on the Isle of Struay. Remember, Mrs McColl returns whenever Mrs Webb wears Mrs McColl's special necklace. Hopefully, we might see her again next week.
You behaved beautifully on our school trip to Birmingham. The dancing, costumes, acting and special effects were amazing in Peter Pan. Even the foyer was a super experience with all the wonderful costumes hanging from the ceiling.
You will find 'ai' (rain), 'ee' (sheep) and 'oa' (boat) in your phonics book. You will also see 'or' (corn) in your book because 'ee' and 'or' work together in Jolly Phonics. We will revisit 'or' next week. You will also find a newsletter on parent app outlining our learning for this half term.
Just a reminder, Forest School will take place on Mondays at 1.40pm with Mrs Cain. The children should wear jogging bottoms and trainers on this day. In fact, we'll be half-dressed for PE! On the topic of PE, lessons will continue on Monday mornings and this term we'll be jumping, rolling and making shapes in gymnastics. When you return on Monday, we will be meeting a very special sporting star. Eden Francis will be visiting school to help you with your exercises and to talk about her work as an athlete (shot put and discus).
See you Monday Red Class,
Mrs Webb, Mrs Reid, Mrs Cain and Miss Davis
