Newsletter 10 – Summer Term 16th June 2016

Happy Home Learning
This week we have been preparing for our move to Foundation 2! We have been learning to write our names, focusing on forming our letters the correct way. Please encourage your child to practise their letters starting on the green go spot and finishing on the red stop spot. Ask the children to show you their Fred Fingers! Fred Frog has been helping the children to hold their pencil the correct way to help them write! We would love to hear all about your home learning. Please comment on the summer flowers on our success tree, photographs would be lovely to see.
Foundation 2 Homework
In literacy this week we have continued to look at holidays. We watched a video about the Wright
Brothers who were the first people to invent and fly an aeroplane. In your homework book can you design your own aeroplane and label it to tell us what exciting features it has?
In maths we have been making our own ramps, measuring the distance travelled by the cars. We used lots of different methods of measuring and compared different distances. At home can you have a ball/beanbag throwing competition with your grown up and use your own method to measure and compare the distances?
Year 1 Homework
Literacy – Flat Stanley is going to Egypt on his next adventures. Can you research Egypt and find out some interesting facts?
Maths – As we are learning about Egypt, keep your eyes peeled for any pyramid shapes you see out and about.
Year 2 Homework
Spellings – fire, London, Pudding Lane, bakery, blaze, flames
Literacy – Please research the Great Fire of London. How did it start? Where was the fire? What was the damage?

Transition FS1, FS2 and Year1
We are quickly approaching the end of the school year and next week we will begin the transition process as the children move into their new classes. Each child in FS1, FS2 and Year 1, will receive their ‘Passport’, find out who their new teacher will be and experience some exciting taster sessions in their new classroom setting. There will be six sessions which will take place on the following days.

Session 1 Friday 24th June 9.10am – 12pm
Session 2 Monday 27th June 1.15pm – 3.15pm
Session 3 Wednesday 6th July 1.15pm – 3.15pm

Session 6 Friday 15th July 9am – 3pm (Children moving from FS1 to FS2 9am – 11am)

PLEASE NOTE CHILDREN SHOULD BE DROPPED OFF AND COLLECTED FROM THEIR USUAL CLASS. NOT THEIR NEW CLASS. THANK YOU
