Mrs Wilding’s Weekly Words Summer 6
The Transition children have had enormous fun this week visiting our Junior Boys site, Ridgeway, where they have explored the grounds and the trees, discussing the importance of trees for the environment. They had enormous fun making colour palettes for which they had to search for different coloured pieces in the environment which could be stuck onto a card. The site lends itself to a forest school approach to learning and the children worked together to create dens with logs and branches they had discovered. A big thank you goes to Stewart Stevens, our site manager, who has driven the groups of children in the school minibus.
Back here the Nursery children have been outside enjoying the gardens and planting seeds. No doubt some of the seedlings will come home, when they are established, to be planted out and we would love to see pictures of the sunflowers grown. They have created some beautiful pictures of flowers which I am certain you will enjoy looking at.
During the week commencing 10 June the Nursery children will continue learning about planting and growing, the colour orange, the number 6 and the letter q. Any small toys incorporating topic related items or orange would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will be learning about life cycles and the letter o.
The next big PTA fund raiser is the Summer Fete to be held on Sunday 23 June 11:00 – 15:00 p.m. at Ridgeway, our Junior Boys site. We hope that you will all come and have great fun there with your children.
Friday 5 July will be the Nursery Department Sports Day, starting at 9.15 and ending approximately an hour later. We would like all children to take part even if Friday is not a regular session. We are beginning to practise so please send your children in wearing footwear suitable for running. Parents and friends are invited to come and watch so book a couple of hours away from your desks!
Please let your child’s class leader know as soon as possible if your child will not be coming in to take part that day so that teams can be arranged.
