    CALLING ALL GRANDPARENTS!

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    Are there any grandparents, or parents, who would be able to donate an hour of their time on Thursday afternoon (1:30 - 2:30) approximately to be interviewed by the children in class. As part of our new topic 'The Time Warp' we are investigating toys from the past and we are looking to interview people to discover what toys were like years ago. Thank you in advance.

    For our topic this term 'The Time Warp...' we are investigating historical toys. I am very aware that the children have toys much more advanced then when I was their age - Lego lights up now and everything! - so with that thought in mind, I am asking if there are any grandparent helpers who would come into school next (Thursday 16th January) to be 'interviewed' by the children about the kinds of toys they had when they were younger. If there are any grandparents who are able to do this then please let me know so we can discuss times. Many thanks, Miss Fitzgerald

    Welcome Back!

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    Welcome back everyone, I hope that you all had a restful, relaxing and fun break filled with festivities, food and family. I hope that everyone is raring to go and is ready to delve into their learning once more. Our topic for the term is 'The Time Warp...' and our class text, if you wish to purchase and read at home, is the '1000 Year Old Boy' by Ross Welford. I look forward to this term which will have a strong theme of the past, focusing on toys and the Victorians. If possible, please could the children bring in a small toy to school for part of our learning on Thursday 9th January - these will be returned home the same day.

    Snacks

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    As a reminder, please ensure that your child's snacks from home are nut free, these will, as always, be monitored and checked and may be removed from the snack box if nuts are present or if we are unsure of the ingredients present. If this happens, the snack will be given to you at the end of the day explaining the reasons. We are a nut-free school. Please also ensure that you provide your child with a named tub or bag for their snack to go into, this ensures that the right child is taking the right snack. Many thanks

    Snacks

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    After listening to messages regarding snacks in Year One I am planning on speaking to the children today about ensuring they only take their snack out of the box and I shall remind them that we do not share snacks, however kind that is. I am going to ask the children that their snack comes to school in a named tub or a named sandwich bag, this way we can ensure that the correct snack is eaten by the correct child. If they do not have their snack in a named tub or a named sandwich bag then I'm afraid it becomes very difficult to monitor snacks and ensure they are being eaten by the intended child and unfortunately the problems which are arising will continue. I apologise if your child has been asked to share their snack or has not been able to have their snack at break time. I am hoping that by talking to the children and through help from parents to provide named tubs or named sandwich bags, then the problem will lessen and hopefully end. Many thanks.

    A Winter's Walk.

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    A massive thank you to everyone who joined us last night for 'A Winter's Walk', and thank you for the effort that went into learning lines and making costumes. It was very appreciated. I hope you enjoyed the show as much as we enjoyed performing it. I don't know about you but on behalf of the entire KS1 team we were all very very proud last night.

    Christmas Play

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    Who can believe that it is almost time for the Christmas Play. I know that Years 1 and 2 have put in a lot of hard work and are very excited to show you what they have been doing. Costumes will go home tomorrow after school. Children should arrive back at school at 5:00pm in their costume. This gives us a chance to register them and allow them to use the toilet before the show starts, and for yourself to get settled. Please bring your child to the Year 2 classroom as the Year 1 classroom will be being used by the after school club. Many thanks, KS1 team.
