This term our topic is 'blue planet'. We are going to look into detail about how we can make improvements for our world to be a better place to live. What I would like you to do this afternoon is find out more information of the topic blue planet. I have provided some links below that will help with your research:
I really do hope you have had a lovely Christmas. I was so excited to see you all, to find out what Santa had given to you and hear all about your Christmas day. Unfortunately, we are not able to be together once again but it is to make sure we are all kept safe and when we are able to come together again, I am sure there will be so much more you have to tell me.
Please keep looking on your class page for updates from myself, Mrs Ayling and Mrs Gray. We will be setting daily tasks, keeping you all busy until it is safe for our return. Please keep smiling and doing the best your can do, this is time to show your families how super you are!
The Nigerian Clapping Game
Also known as Ten Ten. Players stand facing each other ,clapping their hands and moving their legs to a rhythm. They must ensure they don’t raise a leg directly facing the other opponent – which means it is OK for a player to raise a left leg when the other raises a right leg. Once a girl or boy raises the wrong leg, the other girl scores a point. Other hand-clapping games are also popular in Nigerian playgrounds - watch this group of children demonstrate one here.
I hope you are all getting on okay. I cannot believe it has been two weeks since I have seen you. It has been very quiet here, other than my doggy barking telling me she wants a walkies. It was her 1st birthday yesterday, she was very spoilt and even got her own birthday cake.
I have been going on my 1 hour walk a day, it has been lovely to get some fresh air and some exercise. Speaking of exercise, I have also followed Joe Wicks every morning, which I find very difficult indeed.
I have started reading a book and nearly finished my first one, it has been very enjoyable. I can’t wait to start another one. Have you loved any books you have read? Or a book that has even been read to you?
It was lovely the other night hearing everyone clap for the NHS. I could hear loads of people where I live, even some were playing the drums.
I speak to Mrs Ayling every day. I have said how well you are all doing and we are both in agreement that we miss you all.
My highlight of the past two weeks has been seeing all the fantastic work you have done. You have all been so creative and had so many great ideas. Please keep up the hard work!
Miss Charles and Honey
Message from Mrs Ayling and Roo:
I hope you are all enjoying time at home with your families. I have seen some of your lovely pictures of you enjoying your home learning activities. It does make me smile to see you having fun with your learning. Missing all you little Squirrels. I hope you have a lovely Easter.
Class One's Business Enterprise
Throughout the Summer Term Class One are going to be working on their very own business. All children in the class will be involved with making items in order to sell and raise money. Keep coming back to this page to find out more.
I have attached the Chrismas songs for the nativity this year, if you would like to practise them with your child.
I believe the date of the play has been put onto last weeks newsletter, however a letter will be sent home with the children one day next week to provide you with more information, including what they may need to bring in and timings.
If you have any questions, please ask and I shall try to answer them or at least find out for you.
