Project Work 1

Spring and Weather project
Please find attached a science booklet to encourage observations of seasonal changes as we move into spring. 
Please choose a plant or tree that specifically changes during this time of year. It could be a plant that can be seen from a window at home, that is growing in your garden, or you could even plant your own! 
If you cannot get outside, please use the following link to observe a daffodil, pausing it at the appropriate days
The vocabulary written in green might be new to your child, so it would be great if the meaning could be discussed.

Take Care

Please find a list of useful websites to support your home learning. The children have used Phonics Bloom a lot within class and is a favourite of theirs. Also, during this period Phonics Play has given users free access to resources and games.

Holocaust Memorial Day

On Monday the KS2 children had a special assembly to understand Holocaust Memorial Day. They were amazing, they listened well and some children gave very thoughtful and factual contributions. We talked about the word DISCRIMINATION and how no one should ever experience this in their lives because of their race, religion or beliefs.

The whole school then made a flame, each child has contributed to this to remind us to remember the 6 million people who suffered in The Holocaust.


Green Team Success

The Green Team have heard back from ESPO, the company who supplies schools and other organisations with glue sticks. Apparently they can be recycled as long as they are clean. The children have written to NNDC to ask if they put the clean glue sticks in the school’s green bin, that they will be recycled and not end up in landfill.
