Every child in Foundation Stage and Key Stage One was given a Books at Bedtime card last Wednesday. They had to read a Bedtime Story with their grown up every night this week and write down which one they had read. Today was the day we had to bring them back to school. We put them all in a big pile, closed our eyes and picked a winner. Look who won!!!
She got to go and see Mrs Ainsley and choose a book from the box. It was hard choosing from so many great books but finally she settled on a dinosaur book.
Don’t forget to read your Bedtime Stories this week and you’ll get to go in the prize draw next Wednesday if you bring your card back to school. Then the week after its the big Prize Draw.
We were all very proud in Onyx Class when the last Pride of Prince Edward for 2017 was awarded to one of us. To be awarded the Pride of Prince Edward you have to demonstrate excellent behaviour and attitudes to learning throughout your time at school. That is certainly true of this young man. It is a pleasure to have him in Onyx Class and he is a great role model to all his peers.
A huge well done and we can’t wait to see who the next Pride of Prince Edward will be from Onyx Class. There is sure to be another soon.
It was our Christmas Dinner today. Nearly everybody in the class tried a school dinner which was great to see. We have to try hard to use our knife and fork even when it gets a bit tricky.
We even had some special visitors come and join us for Christmas Dinner. The PCSOs came to catch up with us and enjoy their dinner as well. You might even spot Miss Parker’s mum as well who came to share the occasion with us.
We all agreed that our dinner was delicious and now those of us who celebrate Christmas are really looking forward to Christmas dinner at our homes over Christmas.
What we have been learning?
- To use a knife and fork.
- To try new foods.
- To talk to members of our community.
How can you continue the learning at home?
- Encourage your child to use their knife and fork when they eat at home.
- Encourage your child to try a range of foods at home and to eat school dinners each day.
We had a wonderful time on Friday morning when our parents and carers came in for Christmas Workshop. It was great to see so many of you there joining in with the children as they made their Christmas crafts. Some of the children from Garnet class came to say hi as well and we got to go and have a look around Garnet class.
Can you remember the different activities you got to try?
- Christmas Pudding biscuits
- Decorate a bauble
- Making Reindeer Food
- Making paper chains
- Colouring a Christmas Picture
- Making a Christmas Tree ornament
We’d love to see some photos of your decorations around your house. Please send them to us on the class email address.
We’d also love to see if you’ve made anything else at home. Look at this great creation which was made at home and brought into school. The children even went to show Mr Siezckarek.
A huge thank you to everyone who came and made the event such as success 🙂
A couple of weeks ago in school it was Anti-Bullying Week. We did lots of talking about what a bully is and what to do if we think we see someone who is a bully. We also talked lots about how to be a good friend and make sure we are not a bully.
At the end of the week we collected all our ideas and made a book. You can read it here…
We acted out our ideas and took photos to make our book. We only pretended to be bullies though. After we made our book we put it in our reading corner so we could keep on reading it. We really enjoyed reading our book. We hope you like it.
Parents/carers- you can read the book again at home with your child and make sure they understand what a bully is and what a bully does. It is important for your child to understand that for these behaviours to be bullying it happens frequently and is targeted at the same child or children.
Last week in school was Careers Week. We had lots of special visitors to our classroom over the week. Can you remember who came?
First we had a visit from the PCSOs (Police). They came to have a play in the classroom and see what we do in Foundation Stage Two. It was fun to be able to play with all the toys in Onyx classroom together. Then we talked to them and they told us all about being in the Police and how you get to be in the Police. Some of us want to be in the Police when we are older.
Then Miss Parker’s mum came to visit us. We are used to seeing her in the School Library but not in our classroom. She came to tell us all about when she was a Librarian at the University. Did you know librarians have to go to Library School? They also have to read a LOT of books. If you love books maybe you could be a Librarian one day.
Finally Miah’s mum came to visit us and tell us about her job in a Care Home. She has to work very hard and told us all about the different jobs she has to do to help keep the old people happy and safe. She came to see us in her special uniform so we could see it.
A huge thank you to everyone who came to talk to us about their job. What would you like to do when you grow up? Maybe you could draw a picture and bring it to show Miss Parker in class.
