KS1 Artists

We are so proud of the artwork produced by the children in KS1 during this terms expedition. The children put lots of effort into their work. First the children sketched their animal. Then they painted the background and their chosen animal using watercolour paints. Next they edged their painting with water colour pencils and finally they embellished their picture using collage skills. It was lovely to spend quality time with the children teaching them the different skills required to produce their artwork. The children completed each stage in small groups which gave us a lovely opportunity to spend time together chatting away as we spent hours building up our pictures over the past few weeks! The children have demonstrated a lot of pride in their work and so they should! The results are fabulous.

We are so proud of you all and hope your artwork will remind you of all the fabulous memories made during our expedition this term.

Please take a photograph of yourself with your framed artwork and email them to your class teacher! We can’t wait to see where you put them!

Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be holding an art gallery in school on Friday 22nd March. We will have their art work ready to share with you on display in frames. This is a fantastic experience for the children to see and share their art work in this kind of setting.

The time slots are as follows:

You are welcome to come and celebrate the children’s work with them at any time between 4 and 5 but if you are around for your child’s class time slot with reptile rendezvous, then this would be fantastic too!

Thank you as always for your support with the children and their education…they have all worked extremely hard to produce good quality art work and can’t wait to share it with you!

Spectacular Spoons!

I can’t believe the amount of wonderful character spoons we had fetched into school as part of our World Book Day competition! The creativity and effort that has gone into each and every one is amazing!

The Learning Council judged the spoons this morning but it was such a hard choice that we have ended up with 8 winners instead of 4!

Watch this space to see the winning spoons tomorrow …

Here are just some of the fabulous characters!

Year 1/2 and 3/4 presentation of learning reminder!

Don’t forget that our KS1 and Y3/4 presentation of learning takes place on Friday 22nd March 4pm – 5pm. This is a combined event so if you have children in both phases, you can celebrate them both at the same time!

We have been so impressed by the children’s art work and can’t wait to share their work with you in our special gallery!

We really hope you can join us in this exciting collaborative celebration!

If you have any questions, please speak to your child’s class teacher.

Class 5 World Book Day

Class 5 looked absolutely fantastic for World Book Day yesterday. We had lots of fun talking about our favourite stories and characters and making improvements to our class reading area. I am so impressed with all the entries to our story spoon competition too. Remember you have until Tuesday to bring in your story spoons!

Year 1: Miss Schon’s Phonics Group

This week we are learning the sound /ure/ ‘sure cure’. The children are continuing to impress me with their confidence and knowledge of all the things we have been learning. We have set ourselves a group challenge of improving our reading fluency. This week we have been having fun practising our ‘word count per minute’. Our target is to read at least 35 words correctly in one minute on an unknown text. The children have loved this and have said they are feeling more confident to recognise words by sight instead of having to sound them out. I have also noticed that children are spotting when they have not read a word correctly and are going back to try the word again. I am so impressed with you all and it is lovely to see you enjoying reading so much.

I have set the children a challenge to try this at home with their school reading books. Ask an adult to set a one minute timer and record how many words you read correctly before the timer runs out. Can you keep beating your score?

KS1 Community Crew Assembly

Big well done to our Crew Champions this week! We have had some amazing hard work this past week and this was clear with the amount HOWL points being dished out. Huge shoutout for the HUGE amounts of reading certificates given out this week, specially to Martha on 200 reads!!!!

Thank you to our adults for coming to celebrate with us, we hope you agree that we have a wonderful crew in KS1.
