Last week was Art week and all the children painted pictures in the styles of the Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes. Some of the pictures will form a display in the hall and the library. The other pictures will go up in the classroom and cloakroom.
This week we read The Gruffalo. The children did their first piece of writing on The Gruffalo when they started school and they will do a piece of writing this week for their final piece. We will show the children their first piece and compare it to their writing now. The progress that they have made is phenomenal!
We are practising a surprise for the beginning of sports day - which is next Friday morning.
We are assessing the children's phonics throughout the week.
This week is due to be a lovely week of good weather so the children will be outside as much as possible making the most of the fresh air.
The children are also visiting their new classroom and meeting their new teacher.
We have got our trip to Gressenhall on Thursday - fingers crossed for good weather! It's a really enjoyable day and I'm sure the children will have great fun and learn lots (and be exhausted by the end of it - last year some of the children fell asleep on the bus home!).
