Lower Foundation have had a wonderful first week and the teachers are so proud of how well the children have settled into school life and routine. The children are finding their feet, exploring their new surroundings and making new friendships with their peers.
Well done everyone!
Thank you to all the parents who came to our Curriculum Evening this week. It was a lovely way of getting to know you, and we hope you found the information useful. If you do have any further questions, please do contact us at any time. We can’t believe how well the children have all settled; it has been such a fantastic start to the year.
This week we have been looking at the families and identifying different family members. The children have made drawings and talked about their family members. We have also been talking about how everyone is different and special, through stories and discussion. The children are currently being assessed, so teachers have a good idea of how each child learns, what they already know and what their next steps are.
The Year one children have settled beautifully into Key Stage 1.
In Year 1 the children participated in a range of team building activities. They worked as a group to create a tower out of spaghetti and marshmallows. The children also became fashion designers during an activity where they worked as a group to create an outfit out of newspaper and masking tape. The children created a range of themed outfits such as a suit of armor for a knight or a regal dress fit for a princess. The children also took part in a physical quiz where they had a chance to learn about their Year 1 peers.
Alice in Wonderland
This week during Art in Year 2 we have made crazy Wonderland signs to support our English work on Alice in Wonderland. Can you tell which way Alice should go?
This week during Science, we looked at different objects and discussed which materials they were made from. We also tried to describe what they looked and felt like. Then we sorted them into groups. Can you work out how we sorted them?
Last weeks Years 1-6 took part in a variety of team building activities. Everyone had lots and lots of fun!
Neslihan Jones in 6JW brought in these amazing paintings for the Big Bling Frame this week. She made them with her Dad over the summer, whilst her mum was out! Neslihan explained that it was quite a messy but fun process, covering the canvases with running acrylic paint and drawing into the paint with a fork. Fortunately, she and her Dad managed not to get any paint on the carpet!
Maths Games Club
Maths Games Club is on Mondays after school until 4.30pm.
We started off this week with using some construction toys and making as many different 3D shapes as we could. Look at what we achieved!
9 local schools took part in this tournament and, out of the 8 matches played, the results were: won 2, 5 drawn and only one loss. What a great achievement and super start to the netball season.
