Reminder that Monday next week is Hello Yellow Day. The children can come to school wearing something yellow, if that isn’t possible they can wear non-uniform.
In Year R we have had another lovely busy week. The children have had great fun playing outside in the rain with giant brooms and paint. We have been thinking about things that we like this week and have drawn some pictures and labelled them with the sounds we know. On Thursday we had our first ever PE session, we were really impressed with all the different ways the children could move. This week in phonics we have been working hard on segmenting and blending with the first eight sounds we have learnt. The children have enjoyed playing Odd and Bob on phonics bloom to help with their blending, here is the link https://www.phonicsbloom.com/uk/game/odd-and-bob?phase=2. Next week we will introduce four new sounds. In maths we have been looking at careful counting and moving objects as we count we have also been looking at different ways of sorting objects. Twiggle came to visit us and we talked about giving compliments.
Maths Word of the Week: empty
Topic Word of the Week: caring
In Year 1 the children thoroughly enjoyed meeting Ken on Monday for drama workshops learning about the Titanic. They know so much now- we gave them a quiz and we were amazed how much they remembered. In maths the children have been working out 1 more and 1 less than any number using number tracks and equipment. In Art the children have designed and made clay pirate ships and we are very much looking forward to finishing them next week. The word of the week is half.
We have had another busy week in Year 2. In English we finished writing our non-chronological reports all about ourselves and in Maths we used number lines to help us add two-digit numbers. It would be really helpful if you could help your child to practise adding 10, 20 and 30 mentally in their head as this was something that some children found difficult. In Geography we learnt about the effects of deforestation and considered what people can do to help. In Art we learnt about the artist Henri Rousseau and looked at some of his work. We paid particular attention to his ‘Tiger in a Tropical Storm’ / ‘Surpised’ painting as we are going to produce some art work inspired by that piece. We had a go at sketching leaves and learnt how to draw tigers. Year 2 have some talented artists and we can’t wait to see the finished artwork next week.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
