Foundation 1 have been learning about life cycles through The Hungry Caterpillar. They tasted different types of fruits and then created beautiful artwork about their learning.
Well done children.
On Monday we had a great turn out for our reading and spelling parent workshop. As promised, we have put all the resource materials that we used on our school website.
The parent support page is linked to the FS1, FS2, Year 1 and Year 2 class pages.
We hope that you found the afternoon useful and would appreciate suggestions for further parent workshops.
Calling all FS1, FS2 and Year 1 parents!
On Monday 15th October at 2:30pm, we are hosting a workshop for parents which will give them many practical ideas to help their child read at home.
Letters are going home tonight, so if you would like to join in then please sign the slip at the bottom of the letter.
House Carmel are raising money to buy better seating in the library area. So if you have any unwanted books then please donate them to school. House Carmel are then going to sell the books at breaks and lunchtimes.
Please give all donations to Ailsa, Oliver or Charlie from year 6 or to Mrs Gurner by 26th February.
Book Week 26th February – 2nd March
“Book in a box” competition
Our Book Week Competition this year is to create a “book in a box” with super prizes for every year group!
You will need a box, which can be a cereal box, shoe box or equivalent. Choose your favourite book and decorate your box (inside and out) to represent the different parts of the book.
You could draw or cut out pictures of the characters or significant objects from the book.
You could recreate a scene from the book inside.
Include interesting quotes from the text.
Don’t forget to include the title and author of the book too.
Make it as colourful and exciting as you can.
For inspiration look at examples of books in boxes on Google “book in box project ideas”. Also Google “book in a box Southam Primary school” and they have some great ideas on their website too.
Label your box clearly with your name and year group and bring your box by Monday 26th of February for judging. Prizes will be awarded at our celebration of the week assembly on Friday 2nd March.
Today each class had a special visit from Santa Claus and his helpers. All of the children were very happy to find out that they have made it on to the good list!
Staff have worked together to create a selection of Christmas hampers. After school, the PTA will be selling raffle tickets in the junior yard, giving you a chance to win one of our festive prizes.
We will draw the raffle on Wednesday 20th December.
Merry Christmas one and all!
