WB: 13.7.15.

What a wonderful final week the children have had in Year 1.  Our ‘seaside’ afternoon was a great success and the children thoroughly enjoyed splashing around in the paddling pool, playing in the sandpit, dancing and taking turns to hit the piƱata with a stick.


On Friday it was lovely to watch the Year 6 children release their balloons as they said ‘goodbye’ to us all.

 

The children have been amazing this year. Mrs Kelly and I are really pleased at how hard they have all worked and proud of the progress they have made. I hope you enjoyed looking through your child’s books this week that were sent home and the rest of the books will be given to the children in the autumn term.
Mrs Kelly and I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ for the lovely gifts that we have received and have been overwhelmed by your generosity.
We wish you all a happy holiday and thank you for your continued support this year!

WB: 6.7.15

Cannot quite believe we are coming to the end of yet another academic year.
We began the week on Monday watching the fantastic Year 5/6 show.
In English the children have been learning and reciting poems. This linked well to our Music lesson when the children were using instruments to find the rhythm and beat in a rhyme.
In Maths the children have been using addition and subtraction to solve problems. They have also been using a Venn diagram in Science to sort animals into groups – herbivores, omnivores and carnivores!
It was lovely to see Father Michael on Wednesday when he visited our class during our RE lesson. We were very proud of the children’s work and they were happy to share their ideas with Father Michael on how they could be a good ‘neighbour’.
In History we have been looking at how the ‘Seaside’ experience has changed over time. The children have been comparing their own experiences to those of the past – not a bathing machine in sight these days!
On Thursday the children were very excited meeting their new teacher, Miss Lawrance and came back filled with lots of enthusiasm for next term.
Next week is going to be a busy week in class. On Monday we are hoping to collect all guided reading books in. There will be a leavers Mass on Thursday which you are all most welcome to attend.
In the afternoon, weather permitting we are hoping to have a fun ‘seaside’ afternoon. We will be going into the Early Years playground to build sandcastles and have a paddle in the paddling pool. Look out for the note that will be sent out on Monday to ask for swimming suits/shorts and towels.

Enjoy the weekend!

WB: 29. 6. 15.

The children had a lovely start to the week on Monday during ‘Art Day’. They created pictures in the style of the artist Lynette Amelie. This particular artist likes to paint pictures that remind her of the British seaside. The children worked hard to design their beach huts and should feel very proud of their wonderful achievements. 





In Maths the children have been finding halves and quarters of shapes and next week will be finding halves and quarters of numbers.
In English the children worked hard to write some amazing poems about sea creatures. Next week they will continue this theme and will be learning and reciting traditional rhymes.

In RE the children acted out the story of the Good Samaritan and then afterwards retold the story using their own words and pictures. 
All the children looked fabulous today wearing their masks for ‘Wear it Wild Day’! The children enjoyed a fantastic assembly organised by Mrs Kelliher and all of the ECO team. Thank you all very much for your kind donations which will be forwarded to the WWF.


Have a lovely weekend!
