Encourage your child to retell you the story of the three little pigs.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the ‘Royal Wedding’ events held today. We shall post photos on our class blogs so please take a look.

Basic Skills Early Start

Thank you for sending your child to school early for the past term. We have found these fine motor activities have really benefited our children.

For the last half of the Summer Term school will resume back to it’s normal opening time of 8:50

Please be aware that there are LOTS of mosquitos at the moment. Karen Kestrel is doing her best by smoking them out with the fire but they are very persistent!

We would advise you use insect repellent on your child.

Encourage your child to write the sounds in various ways e.g. use chalk outside, can they make the letter shapes with paint? Can they write the word using 'Fred Talk'?

Maths

In Maths this week we have been focusing on doubling. E.g if I have 1 spoon and it is doubled I now have 2. Can your child double the number of people and cutlery at the dinner table? Can they double how many apples are in the fruit bowl? If they spot a plane flying past can they double it?

Forest School

Robins will be going on Tuesdays.

Sparrows will be going on Wednesdays.

Children need to arrive to school dressed in suitable forest exploring clothes.

Your child will either be going in the morning or afternoon for their session and transportation will be included.

Forest School

Teacher One (teacherone) on: SPARROWS

We had a wonderful first session at Forest School.

All the children were so well behaved and fully enjoyed their new experience.

Our Forest School leader sent a lovely email praising our children saying;

"their natural playfulness and enquiring minds are inspiring."
