We had a busy week getting ready for Mother’s Day and saying Thank You to our Mums and other female carers. Wed decided that we would like to make them a card and give them a present. Everyone agreed that our mums usually liked flowers so this is what we gave them. The twist was thought that we have help our mums looks after their plant and wait for them to grow.
We invited our mums into school. If our mums couldn’t make it then nannans could come or aunties or big sisters. The only rule was you had to be a girl! (Dads- don’t worry, you’ll get your turn when its Father’s Day and we say no Mums)
We learnt some songs to sing to our mums and then gave them their special gifts. Nursery and Key Stage One did the same. There were so many people there- over 100 mums and other female carers came! Wow!
We were so pleased to see our mums in school and share this special time with them. Thanks to everyone who came! We hope you enjoyed it 🙂
For the last week of Books at Bedtime we had a whole celebration day in school. We were all allowed to come to school in our pyjamas! There was a special assembly which Miss Varley held in the main hall with all of FS2 and KS1. Our Grand Prize Winner was announced and she chose a whole collection of Julia Donaldson books as her prize.
We had a storytelling session with our school storyteller Andy Messer which everyone loved. We were all laughing out loud at the story although one part was much scarier.
We also got to have a storytelling session with hot chocolate in the classroom and share some of our favourite stories. One of our friend’s favourite books was in Polish so we had to ask his sister to come and read it to us because Miss Parker struggled with all the pronunciation! We noticed there were lots of books on dinosaurs- maybe we’ll have to learn about them soon…
Thanks and well done to all who took part in the Books at Bedtime competition. Don’t forget to keep reading bedtime stories with your children every night as part of your child’s bedtime routine.
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 very exciting in assembly on 19th May; we had our first Pride of Prince Edward not only just for Onyx class but for the whole of FS2!
We’re all very proud of our winner and can totally see why she was chosen to be a Pride of Prince Edward. We can’t wait to see if there will be any more before the Summer holidays.
A huge well done to our winner! 🙂
We went to Special Mentions Assembly for the first time this week. It is always on a Friday afternoon and everyone in the whole school goes. We get to sit at the front as we’re the youngest children there.
In Special Mentions Assembly, Mr Sieczkarek and Miss French give out special mentions certificates to some of the children in school. This week we were very lucky as everyone in Onyx Class (and Garnet Class) got a certificate to say well done on such a wonderful start to full time school.
This week we will start getting individual mentions in Onyx Class. We’ll let you know if your child is getting a mention and you are invited to come to Assembly to see them receive it. I wonder who it will be! There will be 3 special mentions linked to our school values and then all the children who have earned a reading certificate as well. Look out on Thursday and Friday morning to see if its your child. It will then be our turn fortnightly to get certificates in Assembly.
We had a wonderful time celebrating World Book Day this year. There was lots going on. Our school library officially opened so we went for a look round and to borrow our very own school library book. It was great to see all the books we could borrow and choose our favourite to take home.
We all got dressed up on World Book Day and wore costumes of our favourite book characters. Look how fantastic we look. Can you guess who we are?
We went to a whole school assembly with Andy Messer who is a storyteller. He told us a wonderful story although we all thought it was gross when the monster was being sick! It was great to be able to see everyone’s costumes in school as well.
We also went to a special session just for Onyx and Garnet class with Andy where he told us another story just for us. We then got to ask Andy some questions about the stories he tells.
And we weren’t finished there! We decorated our door with Chicka Chicka Boom Boom with everyone working hard to complete their part of the tree or the their letter to climb up the tree. We had a look at everyone else’s doors round school as well.
Our Chicka Chicka Door
