Half term is almost over and it’s back to school tomorrow.
PLEASE BRING IN P.E KITS TOMORROW. We will be having P.E on Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning, every week. In our P.E this term we will be practising our May Day dancing ready for May Day on the 16th of May. More information on May Day will be posted soon, as all children in Reception are involved and parents are asked to support the class stall to help raise funds for our class.
The first week back to school we will be focussing on learning more about our link school in Kenya, we briefly learnt about this before half term and want to know more. So we will get to experience facts about the country, people, education and living through some kenyan style learning.
For the remainder of the term we will then start our new topic of Castles. By Friday we will have planned our topic as a class and hopefully will have some great ideas of what we want to learn about Castles. Any ideas for our castle theme from home would be greatly appreciated.
During this half term we will be going on a couple of trips out to our local area. One will be a walk down the path at the end of school lane and another will be a trip to see the Mow Cop Castle remains. Dates of these will be posted soon and any adults wishing to help would be very welcome.
We will also be having two stay and read sessions on
-Thursday April 30th 8.45-9.20am
-Thursday May 14th 8.45-9.20am
These sessions are for you to share quality time in school with your child enjoying books and learning skills for reading that will help support reading at home.
We are continuing with Mystery Reader and would like as many people to sign up as possible. We like one mystery reader a week and can be flexible on days. Usually Mystery Reader’s arrive at 2.50 so we can have their story before the end of the school day. The sign up sheet is on the parents board as you enter the classroom.
Lastly, any parents who have any free time and would like to come in and help in the classroom with readers, arts and crafts, baking or just general group work would be greatly appreciated. We always need extra pairs of hands with our learning, even an hour or two would really help. Please let Miss Irwin know if you or a family member is interested in helping.
See you tomorrow.
Miss Irwin 🙂
