This half term we have been exploring our Percy the Park Keeper topic. During this topic we spend a lot of time thinking about and exploring our local environment, including looking after the grassy bank. We are hoping to spend more time up on our bank and start growing potatoes, tomatoes, a herb garden and flowers. Any parent or grandparent volunteers are more than welcome to come in and help us develop this space.
All children need a bookbag for their works of art, clearly named and only one key ring attached so it is easily identifiable. Your child will also need a named water bottle so that they can access it at any time. Milk is provided and you can sign up for this on our website via the home page under 'booking and paying' then select the milk option. We will be having regular PE sessions once the children are used the routines of the classroom. They do not require a PE kit.
A gentle reminder that we are a healthy school. If your child is celebrating their birthday and you wish them to distribute treats we are happy to make sure they are first out at the end of the session so they can offer a treat to friends- once their friends have checked with their grown ups. If you would like to send in fruit or raisins we can distribute these at snack time. Thank you for your understanding.
Children in Need
We brought our teddies to school in exchange for a small donation to Children in Need. We put our donations on Pudsy and Blush in the entrance hall after learning about how the charity helps children and their families.
It was wonderful to welcome all the grandparents this week in celebration of Grandparents' Day. The children had the opportunity to show their grandparents around the classroom and look at the artwork and photographs on display. Many grandparents took part in activities and experienced what we offer the children on a daily basis. We rounded off the morning with some songs, despite a technical hitch. The children sang beautifully and there may have been a few 'happy tears' at the end.
