Hello to all parents,
This is our first class blog on the new website and it really is quite exciting. As you know, the last few weeks have been packed full of learning experiences - there is almost too much to report! If you don't already, please follow our Twitter page which is updated in real time with some of our most exciting learning tasks.
It may seem a long time ago now, but it was only two weeks since the Year 5s were in London. We had the most incredible time and fitted in so many activities. I think it's fair to say that by the end of the trip we were all shattered! My personal favourite part of the trip was the visit to the Houses of Parliament and meeting our local MP Kevin Hollinrake - Please ask your child which theirs was! Mrs Ring is judging London diaries and arranging photo access for parents as we speak, so watch this space.
Last Friday, we were lucky enough to return to Uncleby Farm. It's such a beautiful setting and the children were able to learn about how humans had changed the landscape, as well as work on their art skills. The children also had additional time to see the cows which they had previously met when they were only calves.
Our overarching theme this term is 'right and wrong'. As you may know, the children in class Riordan have shown a particular interest in World War II. We have already learnt about the blitz and d-day and there is lots more planned. If parents have any artifacts at home they would be ale to loan the class, that would be greatly appreciated.
Finally, as I write this on the first day of Spring, the children will now be allowed to use the field when it's dry. It is more important than ever that children have indoor shoes as the field is still a little damp, and muddy shoes are inevitable. Children without indoor shoes will not be allowed on the field for this reason.
Thank you to all the parents who attended parent's evening; as ever it was great to see you. I am available both before and after school should any additional parents wish to speak with me.
