Anti-Bullying Week and Children In Need

16 Nov 2017

Hi 1LJ,

We had a successful Odd Socks day and learnt about the difference between hurting on purpose and hurting by accident. We also made a giant hand in the playground to make a stand against bullying. Check our twitter '@Telfertweets' to find the photo!

Star of the Week

Well done to Eloise, who is our star of the week for coming into school with a smile! We know that transitioning from Reception can be hard, so well done!

Children In Need

I am looking forward to seeing everyone's 80's outfits tomorrow! Please remember to bring in a £1 donation and also some extra money to sponsor the teacher's who are doing their part for CIN. I have left sponsorship forms outside the classroom door so if you would like to sponsor a teacher please write your name and how much you would like to give them. Please bring the money in tomorrow.

Class Assembly

As some of you may have already noticed, I have stuck the children's lines for the class assembly in their reading record. Please, please, please learn these at home. We will be performing the 'The King's Breakfast' by A.A. Milne. If you would like a sneak preview, watch this youtube video of Julie Andrews and her daughter reading it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wECTzqzvv9k We are looking forward to performing it for you next Friday 24th November at 3pm.

Show and tell

Next Wednesday is Panda's turn for show and tell. Learning theme: Making tissue box guitars, origami, learning about the poet A.A. Milne.

 

Happy learning

Anti-Bullying Week

 

On Monday the children are invited to come into school wearing odd coloured socks to help celebrate and demonstrate our individuality. We will also be gathering as a whole school to make a giant hand in the playground.

Children In Need

Next Friday, we will be raising money for Children In Need. The theme is '80's Dress Up' so please come in dressed in 80's gear for £1. The teachers will also be doing their part to raise money as well, including: Mr Plews having a legwax, Miss Curry getting covered with food, Miss Newling cycling on a turbo training bike all day, Miss Ball cutting having her lovely locks chopped, and numerous teachers in the stocks after school. Please bring in some extra coins to sponsor us, we won't do it for nothing! There will also be a cake sale after school.

Happy Halloween!

02 Nov 2017

Hi 1LJ!

We have had a great, first week back after our half term break! We will be focusing on poetry in English this term and the children have already learnt a poem called 'The Dragonfly' by Eleanor Farjeon. Please check the blog another day to find videos of the children performing it! We have been learning about positional and directional language in maths such as on top, under, through, forward, backward etc. At home, could you hide a toy somewhere in your house and direct someone to find it? We also created halloween spider pictures in art, using paint, cotton buds and our hands! In science we talked about where light comes from and we investigated different light sources such as candles, torches and the sun. Why is the moon not a light source?

General Information

Please don't forget to sign up for parents evening next Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th November. Letters for our trip to the Unicorn Theatre on Tuesday 21st November, went out yesterday. Please ask for one if it hasn't found its way to you. 

 

Happy Birthday to Isla May, who turned 6 in the half term!

 

 

Show and Tell

 

Next Wednesday is Lemurs turn for show and tell. Learning theme: Bonfire Night, Rememberance Day, poems using onomaotpoeia. 

 

Happy learning,
