What can you tell your grown-ups about your new classroom and new teachers?
This week, the children have been looking ahead to Year 3. Not only have they spent time with their new classes, they have also spent time in their new rooms with their new teachers. There has been a real buzz around the school as excitement for the new year builds. We do also know that this transition time can be tricky for some, as change can often be scary/ overwhelming. We have spent lots of time talking positively about both the year we have had together and the new year ahead, and hope that this reflects the feeling that is coming home to you at the end of the day. In English, the children have been reading The Paperbag Princess. They have worked on how to effectively describe the characters in the story, to build up to their Star Writes next week. In Maths, the children have learned more about how to partition numbers, to help them with the column method for addition. In PSHE, we quizzed the children on cycle safety, and the children impressed us on knowledge of their bikes and how to use them safely on and around roads. We were also very fortunate to be able to watch two performances this week; both the Year 6 production of Aladdin Trouble and the Year 3 music performance. The children came away from both performances singing along, and excited for it to be their turn next year!
