Hi everyone!

 

So on Friday 23rd March we said goodbye to lots of you for a little while. I know this all feels a little bit strange at the moment as we are not going to be in school for some time, but I want you to know the adults in school will be thinking about you every day. We want you to stay home for a while to keep everyone safe and healthy.

 

I want to tell you some important things:

  • Don't be frightened. You may hear some things that might worry you, but these are not worries for you. If you are feeling worried or sad about anything speak to an adult. They will be able to help and look after you.
  • Remember to keep washing your hands for 20 seconds to keep those pesky germs away.
  • Even though you aren't in school right now you can still learn and try new things. Keep checking the website for updates and activities for you to do during our time off. Keep trying your best in everything you do.
  • We miss you very much and when you come back some things may have changed. This is ok as the one thing that won't change is how much the adults in the school care about you.

 

Be kind, be brave and keep smiling. Help the adults around the house and, most of all, stay safe. We miss you lots and can't wait to see your smiling faces back in school very soon. Take care.

 

Lots of love,

Miss Walsh

Football Fun

Today we had some visitors join our school to help us practise our football skills. We had great fun dribbling and racing against other teams whilst developing our ball control skills ⚽️ 

Serving Up Fractions

In maths we have been learning about fractions. As it was pancake day, we thought we would put our knowledge to the test and split our pancakes into halves and quarters. We had great fun decorating each quarter with a different topping. We ended up with a tasty, and perfectly divided snack. Although any evidence of this activity has well and truly gone 🀭

Kung Hei Fat Choy

Kung Hei Fat Choy!
We have been celebrating Chinese New Year by tasting lots of different Chinese foods and learning about all the different traditions that take place during Chinese New Year. We also had great fun dressing up in traditional Chinese outfits. 
We have been very busy over the Christmas period. We have been rehearsing for our whole school play, as well as making our own display for the performance. We had a visit from St Oswalds church who told us the Christmas story. We have also made our own (edible) Christmas trees πŸ˜‹, had  fun in our forest school and made reindeer food 🦌 Have a look at our pictures to see all of the exciting things we have been getting up to πŸŽ„ πŸŽ…πŸ»

Don’t be a square, know your shapes!

This week we have been learning all about 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We had so much fun making shapes out of play dough and straws and talking about how many sides and vertices they have!

Chester Zoo

 

The children had a great time at Chester Zoo and even though it rained, it didn’t dampen our spirits! We got to see all the different animals that we have been learning about. Our favourites were the giraffes and the hornbill! 

Adopt a Reading Buddy Puppy! 


Today we adopted a puppy! 
 

Miss Walsh thought that we are such good readers and love reading so much that we should adopt a puppy and read to it every night. We get to take our puppies home and we promised to read to them every night for at least 15 minutes. We are then going to share all the lovely stories we have read to our puppies with the rest of the class! 🐢😊

Playground Buddy Training 

Today was a very exciting day as Poppy Class took part in Playground Buddy Training. 
 

Our Playground Buddy scheme plays an important part in creating a safe, friendly, happy and peaceful environment for children during lunchtimes. Their role is to help and support the lunchtime supervisors to ensure the children in Foundation Stage and KS1 are safe and happy.


Year 5 children have been selected to be Playground Buddies this year and today Poppy Class helped them in their training. We met our buddies and they explained what their role is. They then taught us some exciting new games that we can play at lunchtimes. We are so excited for our new Buddies to join us on the Key Stage 1 playground.

We has a fantastic day at Chester Zoo. We got to see lots of different animals, went on a boat ride and played in the park! We also got to step back in time and visit the ‘Predators’ exhibition which was full of fearsome animatronic animals from the prehistoric world. We came face to face with a massive megalodon, a dangerous dire wolf, a scary sabre tooth tiger and a terrifying T-Rex. It was very exciting!
