Teeny Tiny Things


This term our Context for Learning is 'Teeny Tiny Things'! So far, we have been learning all about mini beasts. Miss Martin brought in three stick insects which we are keeping as class pets. We all got to write our ideas for names down on a piece of paper and Miss Martin chose the best ones! Our stick insects are called 'Sticky', 'Paul' and 'Munch'. They eat bramble leaves and they like to live in a moist environment; this is why Miss Martin regularly sprays their vivarium with a water spray gun. Here are some pictures of our new additions:


We've also been reading 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle. We've made our own caterpillars out of paper chains and hand prints. We have also re-written the story with a mini-beast of our choice. Some children chose to write 'The Very Hungry Dragonfly' whilst Sofia chose to write 'The Very Hungry Mosquito'! Here is some of our creative work on display:



Reading books are to be brought to school every day. We hope to change your child's reading book once a week, however, if they come home with the same book, it is advised that they read over it again in order to practise their reading. Please could you sign and date their blue reading record once they have read at home - thanks.



Class 2's P.E./gym slot is on a Wednesday morning. We are encouraging the children to come into school wearing their usual uniform and to change before the lesson. This is so they can begin to develop their independence. Therefore, please ensure that they have a t-shirt and a pair of shorts (both with their name on) in a bag every Wednesday. 


Fruit Snack Money

Thank you for supporting our new initiative. We would greatly appreciate if you could continue to contribute £1 a week for your child's healthy snack. As well as being a convenient way of ensuring your child has 1 of their 5 a day, any profit made is used to buy additional resources for our class e.g. ingredients for cooking activities. This contribution should be brought to school every Friday in an envelope clearly marked with your child's name and class.
