Thank you to those of you who have returned the Country Dancing slips. The children have been busy practising this week and are excited about performing at the Summer Fair. If you have not yet returned the slip, please send it in on Monday.
We have planted some tomato seeds at school that are now beginning to grow. These will be on sale at the Summer fair if you would like to buy one to nurture at home.
I hope the children's bean plants are growing well and I'd love to see some pictures of them. Ask your child to measure the plant so we can see whose has grown the tallest! There will be 3 mini-merits for anyone who brings in a photo and measurement of their bean plant.
The children are really enjoying our seaside topic and the next activity is to design a beach towel. If possible, could they bring a beach towel to school to help with some ideas for our lesson next week. They will be designing their own towel and creating a small version on fabric using wax crayons.
I'm looking forward to seeing you all at parent consultations next week. Your child should have brought home a slip to tell you what time your appointment is. Please come through the main entrance to enable you to look at your child's books before your appointment.
Thank you for sending in the flip-flops this week. The children have been looking at the different designs and creating their own design ready for making their own flip-flop next week.
Music - the children have been working in small groups to compose their own pieces by creating a series of sounds and movements. They will be continuing to develop their compositions before performing them to the rest of the class.
Some of the children have been writing riddles this week, using 4 different sentence types: statements, commands, exclamations and questions. Ask them to tell you their riddle to see if you can guess what animal they are describing!
