Welcome Back, we hope you all had a lovely half term break. On behalf of the Poppy Appeal next week we be selling poppies for a donation, we will also be selling Snap bands, wristbands, zip pulls and reflectors for a £1 each.
What a busy and exciting week we have had in Year R! The children were really eager to share with us what they have been up to over half term and drew pictures and labelled them with the sounds they know. We are very impressed with how many sounds they have learnt now. Lots of fun was had in maths this week where we thought about which objects belong in number one’s house, and number two’s. The real highlight of the week though, had to be our charter treat Disco party, we had loads of fun playing party games and dancing, our conga line even escaped out of the hall! Outdoor learning day has been a real success with the children exploring our STEM and Pond areas, we released our inner artists and pretended to be Jackson Pollock and created a large scale firework painting.
Word of the Week: metal
Maths Word of the Week: light
The children in Year 1 have had a super week back. They started off the week tasting different chocolate and using adjectives to describe. We all loved trying so many different flavours. In maths the children have been learning to use their number knowledge to create simple addition number sentences. We finished the week with a blustery day, but thoroughly enjoyed outdoor learning day!
The word of the week is taste.
This week in Year 2 we began our new ‘Poles Apart’ topic and started to learn about the Arctic. We learnt how polar bears and snowy owls adapt to survive in their environment. In English we used descriptive language and prepositions to write an interesting Artic setting description and in Maths we have been working on our number bond facts to 10 and 20. Can your child mentally recall all their number bonds to 10 and 20? It would be really helpful if they could continue to practise them at home. In PE we learnt some ocean-based yoga poses.

General News and Information:
If your child does not eat certain foods due to religion reasons or personal preference, please ensure they know what lunch option they are choosing every day before they come in to book it on the whiteboard. There have been a few occasions when children have inadvertently selected the wrong meal choice. Children with allergies are identified by wearing a different coloured wrist band and have their meals cooked according to their special menu.
HC3S have a parent portal where they can register children needing special allergy school dinner menus directly. This will give parents more control and direct contact with the catering team. You will then need to make an application online for your child to have a special menu and the school will be notified automatically. If you need to apply for a special menu, please see the information by clicking on: https://specialdiets.hants.gov.uk/
If your child has a change or existing or new medical condition, please inform us by completing the form which is now available on our website: New or Change to Existing Medical Condition Form
We continue to put our children, their parents and our staff at the centre of any decision making to ensure that we keep everyone as safe as we can at this continued tricky time. If you have any feedback as to how this week has been, please let us know via email@example.com
