Mailing for 13th May 2022
Letters Home (https://www.hwis.hants.sch.uk/letters-home/):
We have had a lot of illness in school over the past two weeks and have had to send children home who have been unwell with temperatures as well sickness. Please understand that we have to do this to try to keep the school community as well as we can and also ensure the children have time to recover. We understand that it can be frustrating but we have their wellbeing at the heart of things.
As the weather warms up and you start to buy sun care products for your family, please be aware that some of these products contain nuts in their ingredients. We have a number of children in school with nut allergies so please check the ingredients list carefully before you make your purchase. We advise parents to apply sun cream before sending your child into school. On really warm days, the children can re-apply using wipes or a roll on sun cream. Please do not send in liquid sun cream.
Please can we also ask that although it is now summer term, it is important that children are wearing shoes and socks rather than sandals to school as a matter of safety.

Castle day letter
Mechanics day letter
This week Year R having been learning all about Mary Anning. The children had great fun exploring the history box all about her and learning about how fossils are made. In maths we have been thinking about one more and one less than a given number, please can you practice this at home with your children to ensure they are confident with one more and less than a given number to 10.
Word of the Week: fierce.
Maths Word of the Week: half.
The Year 1 children have been finding out about Castles this week and have come up with some questions. They are looking forward to finding out the answers. In maths the children have continued to learn about multiplication and have been using arrays to solve simple problems. The children have been looking at 3 Queens from 3 different eras and putting them in timeline order. They noticed lots of similarities and differences between Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II. The words of the week are ramparts and demanded.
This week, Year 2 finished writing their newspaper articles linked to the book 'Journey' by Aaron Becker. We certainly have some budding journalists in our classes! In Maths, we used unstructured number lines to solve subtraction questions. We also learnt how to use the inverse operation to solve missing number problems. In History we started learning about Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Can your child tell you any facts about him?
