Mailing for 24th June 2022
A very busy week in school with some very special visitors. Thank you to all parents that completed the ParentView survey or spoke to an inspector – all the feedback was discussed and explored in detail as part of the inspection. During the inspection, routines and activities in school were changed and adjusted. The inspectors spoke to the majority of children and staff to find out their views on school. It was a very unusual few days and everyone adapted and were flexible. The outcome of the inspection will be shared when we receive the final report. It can take up to 30 days although we have asked, if possible, to receive the outcome before the holidays so we can let you know. Sadly, at this time, the outcome is confidential and cannot be shared. The children were absolutely amazing as were the staff and we are very proud of them all!!!

This week Year R have been looking at specific minibeasts. The children made some lettuce soup for the snails to eat and did some amazing writing about them. They even offered one of the inspectors some lettuce soup that had been eaten by the snails to one of the inspectors. Surprisingly, she declined as did Mrs Boorman. They have learnt how to share in different groups using cookies. They have enjoyed being outdoors although some have been getting a bit carried away in the mud kitchen. We will rein them in with this moving forwards.

The Year 1 children have had a very busy week! We have started our new topic and the children have been learning about Julia Donaldson books. We have started with the highway rat and have been discussing good and bad characters in the story. In maths, the children have been learning about time. This week they have made their own clock faces with number cards and practised o’clock using the hour hand. In geography, the children have been creating aerial maps of the classroom and including a key- we were all very impressed with their understanding! All of the children have thoroughly enjoyed their charter treats this week in their classes- it was a well-deserved treat for them all. The word of the week this week is aerial view.
Year 2 - This week we had a visit from Ofsted and the children certainly did us proud by showing our special visitors just how amazing they are. In English we wrote a detailed description about an imaginary tunnel. We used our senses, prepositions, expanded noun phrases and adverbs to make our writing really interesting. In Maths we have been halving numbers using different strategies and we used our knowledge of halving to solve problems. In Science we learnt about the life cycle of a sunflower plant and acted it out. In Geography we learnt about physical and human features of seasides and in History we have been learning about similarities and differences between seasides now and seasides in the past.
