Squirrels Complete Biome in a Box Challenge

As part of their ‘What a Wonderful World’ topic, Squirrels class learned about rainforests and Mr Robson challenged the children to create the features of a rainforest by making a model jungle in a shoe box using different tools, media and techniques, combining natural and synthetic materials. Below are a few examples completed by the children.

Skipping and Circus Day Reminder for Owls, bees and Squirrels

We have invited Mr Dan to teach our KS2 children some exciting new skills. On Tuesday 8th June KS2 will have the opportunity to take part in a speed rope skipping workshop followed by a Circus day on Tuesday 22nd June. We would like to ask for a contribution of £6.00. This includes both workshops and food. Payment can be made via ParentPay. Consent for your child to take part in the activities will also be required when paying. Children will need to wear their P.E kits for these days.

Celebrating reading at Wadworth

All classes took part in dressing as a book character day at Wadworth, yesterday and as usual the effort the children and their families made to celebrate the day was amazing. We had witches, wizards, superheroes, sports starts, monsters, magical nannies, carton characters, princesses, stickmen, tigers, giants, and almost everything else in between. The children had a wonderful day doing activities based around their favourite books including writing riddles to identify book characters, designing and making cakes based on scenes from favourite books, art based on stories and listening to and watching different versions of well loved tales.

Parents’ Evening Appointments

I have uploaded the instructions to help you join your Parents’ Evening appointments.

Please make sure you can find the appointment before next Tuesday or Wednesday. On Google Chrome, visit google.co.uk then click the apps link (the nine dots in a square next to your profile picture on the top right hand corner of the screen) and select Calendar. Sometimes moving between apps makes the computer flip back to a different sign in account, so if your appointment isn’t there, please check the icon is what is should be (usually the first initial of your child in a coloured circle). You might need to sign in again.

Navigate to Tuesday 23rd March or Wednesday 24th March to find your appointments. You can join the meeting by clicking on these at the allocated times, then selecting ‘Join the Meeting’

Owls and Squirrels Bubble Closures

Unfortunately, on Friday, we had to send children in Owls and Squirrels home when we heard 2 children from these classes had tested positive with Covid-19. The children have been isolating since Wednesday, and were last in school on Tuesday 26th January. Consequently, children in these two classes need to isolate until Sunday 7th February and will be able to return to school on Monday 8th.

We hope the children who tested positive make a speedy recovery and our thoughts go out to them and their families. Online learning will of course continue for these classes next week, so please login to Goggle classroom each day and take part in the live lessons.

Parents of children in these classes eligible for free school meals can expect a 16 digit code to arrive in their email inbox on Thursday. These codes can be redeemed for a £15 supermarket voucher for each child by visiting: www.freeschoolmeals.co.uk.
