Welcome back! We hope you had a pleasant Easter and are ready for another busy term ahead. Thank you for your support last term and making some ‘Eggcellent’ exhibits, we were astounded as to how creative they were!  Also a thank you for all of those that managed to attend the service at St James’ Church. It was lovely to see so many of you.

 

WHAT CAN YOU FIND AT THE TOP OF THE BEANSTALK?

This term we have a very exciting topic and it is called ‘What can you find at the top of the beanstalk?’ During the topic the children will hear many different versions of the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. They will also learn about plants in their local environment. If you have any resources you wouldn’t mind sharing with us or knowledge about gardening and plants, please come and speak to us.

 

PE this term will continue to be both indoor and outdoor. Children need to be prepared for all weather so please provide your child with suitable clothing. All clothing needs to be clearly labelled. We will try our best to get the uniform back to the right person but the children need to start taking some responsibility for their own belongings. Please check the timetable for which days your child has PE.

On Friday afternoons the children will continue to have ‘Good to be Green' time. Children are allowed to bring a toy from home into school on a Friday and it will be placed in the wooden trunk underneath the interactive board. Please can we remind you that toys on other days are not permitted in school.

 

As part of our Super Starter, we will be having a visit from Mrs Cameron’s chickens. If your child has an allergy to the animal in any shape or form, please inform us and we can arrange alternative arrangements so that your child doesn’t take part in the session.

 

We encourage healthy eating in school and as part of this the children must only have a healthy snack at morning break. Please place snacks on the shelf above your child’s peg in the morning and drinks bottle now into the box on the side table. Please can all drink bottles and snack pots be clearly labelled. We have had many go missing and unclaimed.

 

I hope you have all the information that you need for the term ahead, if you have any further queries please pop in and see us.

 

Yours Sincerely

 

Mrs Burton and Mrs Olejnik
