This week we have been focussing our learning around the story ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We have loved using our writing books as part of our ‘early morning work’ to write various descriptions and sentences. Thank you for your support in using the new writing books with your child in the morning, it has been wonderful to see your child working with you and sharing their learning.
We have also been learning all about the number 16 this week; finding out how it can be made and using resources in the classroom to try and make 16. In phonics, we have been practising the sounds we have learnt over this year as we have now learnt all the new digraphs! Please do keep up with regular reading as this helps with fluency and comprehension.
We had a great time in the Byes, going exploring and building a house out of sticks for our pigs. We worked in teams with children across all three classes and RS stayed with us at Vicarage Road for lunch! Thank you to all of our parent helpers for making the trip a success.
Next week we will be introducing ‘The Three Billy Goat’s Gruff’. We will also be watching the Year 2 production at the Woolbrook Road site. If you are able to help us walk after lunch (1pm) to Woolbrook, please let me know.
This week we have started our new story, The Three Little Pigs and have our trip to The Byes on Wednesday 12th. The full list of trips this half-term are listed below:
Wednesday 19th June – The Byes – Billy Goats Gruff
Monday 1st July – Sidmouth Beach – Rock Pooling
Thursday 11th July – Sidmouth Beach – Beach Combing
Tuesday 16th July – Sidmouth Beach – Family Picnic and Paddling
If you would like to join us on any of these trips and help us walk the children to and from The Byes or the beach, please speak to a member of staff in RN. On these dates, please can you ensure your child has a water bottle and sun hat available and has had sun cream applied in the morning. On the days we are going to The Byes we will aim to leave class by 09:30am and on our visits to the beach we will leave school at approximately 09:15am.
Unfortunately after our pond dipping trip was cancelled a last week, we have been unable to arrange a new date for this so it will not be going ahead.
On Monday 17th June, the classes from Vicarage Road will be walking up to the Woolbrook Road site in the afternoon to watch the Year 2 end of year production. If you are able to help us walk up there (timings to be confirmed) we would appreciate your help. The children on this day will need to be picked up from Woolbrook Road at 15:05pm.
Don’t forget to keep growing your runner beans and bring in your longest runner bean on July 1st to be measured!
If you have any questions about your child's learning or how to support them at home with their new learning please do not hesitate to speak to Mr Newton in the classroom or on the playground!
