Pink Class News

It has been a really busy week. All the children have been working hard and are looking forward to the half term.

The first week back after half term will be Art week. The Pink classes will be visiting Tate Modern on Monday 25th February, they will need to be in full school uniform and will need to bring in a packed lunch.

In addition to this, they will be participating in a plate painting workshop, in school, on Tuesday 26th February.

We hope that you have a peaceful half term and that the children return to school refreshed after the break.

The Pink Team.

This week it was Pink 3’s assembly. They taught us some interesting facts about materials and we loved the song they sang!

The children have really enjoyed R.E this week while learning about the Presentation of the Lord.

In English we have started to look at poetry and are focusing on a poem called ‘I Love Chips’. Help you children to think of foods that rhyme such as mustard and custard.

We wish you a happy and peaceful weekend.

This week it was Pink One’s assembly - we now know the origins of the teddy bear - well done Pink One!

Thank you to all those parents that were able to attend the Maths workshop. The PowerPoint will be on the website if you wish to see it.

Pink Three has a busy day on Monday with their visit to Forest Schools and the Library - they enjoyed the day immensely!

We wish you a peaceful and restful weekend.

This week has seen Pink One and Pink Two going to Forest Schools. As usual the children had a fabulous time even though it was cold. Please remember to send your children in with hats, gloves and scarves on days when we are visiting Forest Schools.

In R.E we thought about all the different objects that we see in church. It was fun putting a name to them. Next week we will be creating our own churches - please send a shoe box in with your child.

In Maths we continued with place value and looked at what different numbers we could make.

Our English lessons have focussed on the book ‘Dogger’ by Shirley Hughes. We will be creating stories about the adventures of Dogger while he was lost.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish the Spiers family all the best as they leave us to return to Australia.

Wishing you a peaceful weekend.

Happy New Year!

Welcome back to a new and exciting term. The children have settled in really well and have enjoyed their first week back. In R.E we have started a new topic - ‘Special People’. We have thought about who we are special to and who is special to us.

In English we have written a recount about our Christmas holidays. The children enjoyed sharing their most exciting events with the rest of the class. Our Maths lessons have been related to place value. We have been looking at how you identify odd and even numbers.

We hope you have a relaxing weekend.

Dear Parents/Carers,

The KS1/Pink Classes lit their second purple Advent candle. It reminds us that we are half way through Advent and we need to think about how we can be more loving.

This week we were particularly proud of all the children and their wonderful performance of The Christmas Story. We hope you enjoyed it too.

The end of the Autumn Term will be soon upon us but we are looking forward to our final week completing many fun packed Christmas activities.

Wishing you a lovely weekend.
From the KS1 Team.

The KS1/Pink Classes lit their first purple Advent candle. It reminds us to be hopeful during the four weeks of Advent. We also wrote our Advent promises.

It has been a particularly busy week rehearing for the KS1 Nativity play: The Christmas Story. We are looking forward to next week’s performances on Wednesday 12th December at 2:15pm and on Thursday 13th December at 6pm.

It would be much appreciated if your child can return to school on Thursday 13th at 5:30pm dressed in their P.E. kit or home clothes. The Main Reception entrance will be open at 5.30pm. Please come along and we promise you will be reminded of the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank you,
Year 2 Team

We have had another exciting week in the Pink Classes. In Mathematics, we have been working hard to add different amounts of money using the fewest coins as well as calculating change from different amounts.

Next week we look forward to exploring Data Handling/Statistics. We will begin to read and construct Tally Charts, Pictograms and Block Graphs. In English next week we will continue to focus on grammar including past tense verbs. In Religious Education we will be discussing and developing our understanding of the symbols and traditions of Advent.

Last but not least, please help your child (Year 2 only) to practise their lines for the KS1 Nativity play.

The Pink Team would like to wish you a restful family weekend.

In English this week the children have enjoyed reading the story The Lion in the Meadow by Margaret Mahy. They have been using adjective to describe the lion in the meadow. Next week we will focus on grammar such as past tense verbs and homophones.

In Mathematics we have been working on recognising different coins and choosing the correct coins to pay for different items. Next week we will be exploring different strategies to calculate change (i.e. counting back or counting up if there is a small difference).

In RE the children have been recording their understanding of the symbols of Baptism. Next week we will commence our new RE topic Waiting/Advent.
