Red Class Friday Fanfare 19.05.23


Hello Red Class Families,

This week, we’ve been learning about Alice Rahon. Alice was an artist and a poet. As well as looking at her paintings and talking about some of her work, we’ve developed our own painting skills. We’ve painted thick and thin lines, mixed primary colours and used different tools for painting. The children created pieces of work for their sketchbook and returned to their painting skills in Play and Explore.

The children tried hard to read words ending in -ing, -est and -ed and we also introduced new tricky words: out, today. Mrs Thomas helped us to learn a rhyme about a jumping panda and we changed some of the words to create our own poem. If you’re missing a reading book, please let us know. We change books on Mondays if there is a book in the book bag. New eBooks were assigned today.

In Maths, the children revisited 3D shapes (cylinder, sphere, cube and cuboid) and used 3D shapes to solve problems and create repeating patterns. Try finding and naming 3D shapes at home and create repeating patterns e.g. ball, tube, tube, ball, tube, tube or dice, dice, cereal box, dice, dice, cereal box.

Healthy Snacks

Thank you for packing healthy snacks for lunchboxes and/or snack time. On Sport’s Day the children eat their morning snack on the school field. On this day, please send their snack in a named snack box or write their name on the packet.

Sport’s Day

Sport’s Day will begin at 9.15am on Friday, 26th May. Families usually arrive just before to find a good spot in the viewing circle (painted on the field). Feel free to bring a picnic blanket or camping chairs as we’ll be busy until 11am. ‘Tea and Toast’ will serve on the school site and at stations on the field. During the morning, Red Class will take part in a range of sporting activities including track races, throw rounders and multi skills. We’ll also watch Blue Class as they take part in their final race at Blackwell. If it’s a sunny day, please send a sun hat into school and apply suncream before the start of the school day.

Best wishes,

Mrs Webb and Team Red Class xxx
