Term 4 – already !!
Spring is nearly here and we shall be looking for signs in the outdoor environment, investigating the natural world with all our senses! World Osprey Week 23rd – 27th March will soon be upon us and we will be tracking the progress of Rutland’s own Ospreys on their journey back from West Africa (we shall set up a computer logged into the webcam at Rutland Water very soon so we can witness their return following their amazing 3,000 mile journey!) We have Pancake Day, World Book Day (5 March), and ‘Wear Something Green to School’ Day (20 March) and a trip to Uppingham Theatre to look forward to (more information to follow!) Tish Barnwell, Rutland Road Safety Officer will be coming in to talk to us with some very important safety messages and PC Laurie Appleton will also chat about ‘Stranger Danger’.
Prime areas of learning are still very important as we introduce being ‘resourceful’ as the learning behaviour this term and ‘friendship’ as our Christian Value. We continue our Read Write Inc journey at our own individual pace and are beginning to read a few familiar naughty ‘red’ words. Now that Fred has given us our Set 2 Sounds, we will have further choices when writing. Mathematics is present in everything we do (we always use real experiences as opportunities to further our understanding) just how tall will Soopir Plant grow and how many eggs will our chickens lay each day? Our main PE session continues on Friday morning, still indoors, so don’t buy any trainers yet! Nearer the end of term, we will explore the Easter story, you are invited to join us for the school Easter Service at St Andrews church on Friday 3 April.
Parents Consultation meetings are on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th March when we will discuss individual targets to help the children reach the Early Learning Goals at the end of their Foundation year and think about transition into Year 1 – more information to follow.
As always, thanks for all your support!
