Year 1+2 trip to Twycross Zoo

We are really looking forward to our trip to the zoo with the children tomorrow. Just a couple of reminders:

  1. We are due back at 3.15 and will release the children as usual from classrooms.
  2. Please send your child with a bottle of water as it is supposed to be a hot day!
  3. Ensure they have been covered with long-lasting sun cream and a hat.

Thank you for your support,

This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, it has not been possible for us to allow children to walk to and/or from school unaccompanied. We do, however, recognise that, as part of the transition process to life at secondary school, it is important that children develop the confidence and independence to make their way to and from school. We have therefore made the decision, for the remainder of the academic year, to allow children who are in Year 6 to do this.

Any Year 6 parents who wish for their children to walk to and/or from school unaccompanied should follow the link below, read the information and then complete the declaration.  Without this being completed we will, unfortunately, not be able to release your child at the end of the day, unless an adult is present.

Please also note that, at present, it is only Year 6 children that we will be allowing to walk to/and or from school unaccompanied.

Year One Class Mass

What a wonderful way to begin our last half term together! Year One were very lucky to have their class mass this morning and my goodness were we excited! The children were an asset to the school and participated in the mass respectfully throughout.

Even though we were a little out of practise, the children tried their very best to join in and when they were not sure they gave it a go anyway. It was so lovely to gather together with a few members of our parish and Father Paul to celebrate mass and we cannot wait to come back soon!

With huge thanks to Father Paul, Deacon Paul and all the stewards who welcomed us back.

Look out on the calendar for the class masses to follow.

 

Year 1 and 2 picnic

On Thursday (10th June) we are going to Hearsall Common to have a picnic as a key phase. Please ensure your child has a packed lunch on this day or altenatively, the children can request a sandwich from school. We will be asking the children tomorrow about their choice.

 

Thank you for your cooperation!

We are published authors!

Here are just some of the stories that the children in Year 2 have published this week. They have worked so hard to include exciting vocabulary in their adventure story and I have LOVED reading them all! I’m very proud of them and they should be too!

Y2 at the Walled Garden!

We finally managed to get to the Walled Garden today! First we listened to find out how to plant potatoes. We needed to space them out evenly and then cover them with soil. They will grow over the summer so we are really keen to check on them to see how they have grown! Then we planted them and covered them using a trowel.

Next, we walked around the garden looking at some of the other plants which have been planted there. There were tomatoes and turnips as well as lots more vegetables!

Miss Clarke thought it would be very cruel to take us to Allesley Park without having a play so we walked down to the park and had a short go on the swings and equipment. We had a great time!

Boat making!

Firstly I just wanted to say a huge thank you for sending in the plastic bottles and egg boxes! The children had a great afternoon designing, testing and evaluating their boats. Some were more effective than others but we talked about what we would do differently next time! Here are some pictures of our creations.

Year 2 updates

This week in Year 2 we have two exciting things happening!

On Wednesday 19th May, we are going to be designing and making our own boats from egg cartons and plastic bottles. Please could you send these items in on or before Wednesday.

 

Also, on Friday 21st May, we will be going on the school minibus to Allesley Park’s Walled Garden (weather dependent) and planting some potatoes. Please send your child into school in their school tracksuit on this day.

Thank you in advance!
