Next week is science week!
The children will have an opportunity to take part in a number of science experiments, we will see the 'Microcopes and Minibeasts' show and visit the Year 6 Science Fair. How exciting!
Some parents have asked me about the 'food' games we have been playing in class. If you want to play at home (it's great for co-ordination, problem solving and fine motor skills) you can find them here
After Easter we will be thinking about Spring, and as usual we have wish list! Could we please have any old ladies tights, metal implements and tools for our wind chime, and as many oddments and balls of wool as you can spare please?
Over the summer we had a 'rodent visitor' in our shed, and we have lost some of our outside play equipment due to nibbling! We are reordering, but I wonder if you have any of these items at home that are no longer needed?
outdoor push-along toys (wheelbarrow, pram etc)
unwanted garden games
Are there any parents 'brave' enough to come and bake with the children?
The weather is getting very cold, please make sure your child has a named hat and gloves in school..
We have now had several mystery readers, the children have been delighted to have special readers and have listened enthralled to the lovely stories.
If you would like to be a mystery reader, and come in to school and read the end of day story to the class, please let us know. This is a lovely opportunity to share a book with your children and their friends. Please DON'T tell your child if you are going to do this, as we want to maintain the element of surprise and delight as you walk through the door!
