Good to be me

Dear Parents and Carers,

This week we are continuing our theme of Spring through the story of Titch. The children will have lots of opportunities to write sentences about the story, trying to remember to use a capital letter, a full stop, finger spaces and to read through their work to check it makes sense before showing it to us. The children will also be making cards this week and writing in them. We will also be continuing with our daily phonics sessions, where the children will have opportunities to read and write simple words and sentences, and daily readers.
In maths this week we will be looking at the capacity of containers using both cubes and water. We will identify containers that are full, half full, half empty and empty. We will also be considering different shaped containers and comparing their volume. Then we will be giving the children the chance to predict and then test, to find out which container holds the most and which container holds the least water.
We are hoping to make our old sandpit in to a raised bed and would be grateful to receive donations of polythene to line the pit and compost to fill the pit. Thank you.
Forest skills and PE will on Friday as usual.
We look forward to seeing you all at Parent's Evening next week. You are welcome to bring your child with you if you want to.
Thank you for support.
