The end of term has finally arrived and what a busy term it has been!
We have been out and about to lots of different places and learned so much about the town we live in. We’ve had lots of visitors into the classroom and finished the term with a spectacular performance of Straw and Order.
We have been busy making all sorts of decorations and cards this week.
We made traditional Christmas cakes with Mrs Barlow at the beginning of the week and decorated them the following day.
On Wednesday morning Mrs Steele came in and we had our annual Christmas sing along with her which was lots of fun.
On Thursday morning we split into teams and practised making our Christingles.
Mrs Hawkins, Mrs Clinkard and Mrs Barlow would like to thank all the children for making each day in Greys a fun filled place to work, to the parents for all their support at home and in the classroom and for all your lovely gifts, cards and thanks.
Show and Tell will be about Healthy Eating.
Wednesday – Immy
Thursday – Nancy
Friday – Jonathan
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and hope you all have a wonderful time with your families and friends.
Greys class have been practising for their play this week and are getting very excited about their performances next week. Can everybody please go over their lines this weekend in preparation for the big day on Tuesday? Performances will be at 2:30 and 6pm.
In Maths the Year 2s have been adding 2 digit numbers to 2 digit numbers using number squares and beaded lines and then creating their own number lines to solve the sums.
The Year 1s have been revisiting numbers to 100 and working out 1 more and 1 less than a given number. They have also been working on number bonds to 10 and 20.
In Literacy we wrote some rather silly poems and finished our Poetry topic on Thursday, when in Big Write we wrote poems entitled 10 wishes for Christmas.
We also wrote Christmas wishes for ourselves, our families and for the World which are now on display in the classroom.
It was the Year 1’s turn this week to use the paint programme in Computing to design their Christmas cards. It was lovely to see the Year 2s giving them a helping hand and I’m sure all their families will be delighted when they see the finished articles.
On Friday we went on our Winter welly walk whilst Christmas lunch was being prepared. We had lots of fun singing Christmas songs as we walked and running around in the fields on such a sunny day.
Can everybody please bring in a named carrier bag ready to take their end of term crafts home in.
Show and Tell next week is about Christmas
