....our doors are always open. Please do come and see us if any matters arise. If a proper appointment is needed, please make it at the office. We have our open registration morning on a Wednesday and this is an opportunity to take a look at the work in the classroom and to take part in some topic related activities with your child. Please note, that open registration is not an appropriate time to discuss individual concerns though- your teacher will be far better able to help you during your own appointment time.
Welcome to the Autumn Term!
Our first topic is 'CASTLES'. Our skills this term will focus on History and Art. We encourage the children to bring in any books, artefacts or toys from home that support our topic. Now that we are in the second half or term. our skills focus has developed into Art. Our focus artist is Hans Holbein the Younger. Holbein is famous for very detailed portraits of the Royal family; including Henry VIII and his wives. We have been studying his use of colour and line to show what a person really looks like- there were no photographs then, so the paintings had to be right!
We have loved welcoming your home learning projects into the classroom! Thankyou so much to our fabulous parents for encouraging the children to take part in this extra learning. We have found it to be a hugely enriching experience for the children. Being supported at home this way really makes a huge difference in their enthusiasm for learning. Do make sure you take a look at our displays in the classroom and feel free to keep them coming if you want to continue.
In the meantime, please do feel free to drop in on a Wednesday morning for open registration. Please help to assist us in instilling greater INDEPENDENCE in the children by sending them into the school building by themselves on all other mornings. A member of staff will always be by the door to ensure any messages are passed on.
We really enjoyed welcoming you into class for our History open afternoon. There were lots of activities to be involved in and we certainly know the pillory was well used! Our photographs are below.
Home Reading: Please make sure you continue using reading diaries to update us on home reading. Be reassured that home books can be read, as well as school books. We know only too well that children will love reading if they enjoy the books in the first place. Just make sure you let us know in the diaries what is being read with a brief comment and signature.
We will update this page regularly with further information, upcoming events, home learning projects, homework, learning links and photographs.
Both classes have selected Articles from the United Nations Rights of the Child. These are displayed in class, where we have also signed our names to show that we will all agree to upholding these in school.
Dragon your feet again!
