What a brilliant first week we have had back in Air Class. The children have been amazing. Thank you for all the hard work you have done at home in preparing them for their return to school; some in a new class and all with two new teachers! We have loved getting to know the children throughout this week and it is wonderful to see the empty classroom, once again, full.
We jumped straight into learning through our whole school topic based on Noah’s Ark and Ian’s Farm. This week the children have taken part in lots of fun, learning activities.
As musicians, we have been exploring the sounds of our new, whole class, set of instruments. As scientists we have been classifying animals. We have had lots of fun in RE as we have begun to explore, ‘The Creation’ by using our creativity and imagination outside; appreciating how things around us are made or created and wondering what the creators might be like.
We had a fantastic time when Farmer Ian came to visit, bringing with him lots of different animals. On Friday, we wowed Mrs Hartley with our writing when we told her all about our experience as she felt sad because she had missed out.
We are working closely with the children to support their reintegration into school life following the 6 months away and even longer if you include the floods. We are using the Jigsaw Recovery Programme (part of our PSHE package) to settle the children in and support them with their emotional and mental health.
Next week, we are looking forward to learning about number bonds and addition and subtraction, descriptive writing, more work on classifying animals and working on a whole class art project that is going to feature as part of a whole school art display in the front entrance!
We will be observing the children in their learning and over the next couple of weeks will have a clearer idea on the next steps for each, individual, child. We will then be able to send them their appropriate books and spellings home.
We hope you all have a fabulous week.
Mrs Maule, Mrs Chadwick and Mrs Hartley.
Lots of us are out taking our daily exercise, walking, scooting or going out on our bikes. It is important to keep safe when using roads. Here is an activity sheet that will help keep you safe out on the roads. Activity sheet.
