Can I tell you a story

Welcome back Class Fletcher for the second half of the Spring term.  We hope that all the children and their families had a lovely half term break and enjoyed the lovely, warm sunshine.

 

Last week the children celebrated Shrove Tuesday and World Book Day.  Over the course of the week the children shared their favourite stories in class as well as preparing and eating their own pancakes.  Towards the end of the week the children enjoyed a classic children's picture book "The Tiger who came to to tea." The children were challenged to write a shopping list for Sophie's mum, just incase the tiger came back!

We are all superheroes

What a super start to the year we have had in Class Fletcher!

 

All the children have settled in well and we have enjoyed talking about ourselves and the places we have visited over the summer. We are continuing to add to our 'where have you been, what have you seen' board in the classroom. If you visit anywhere over the coming weeks and weekends, please send any pictures or leaflets you have. This gives the children a chance to share their adventures with the rest of the class.
