wb 12.07.21; Homework and Plastic Tubs

Dear Hurricanes 

There will be no spelling homework or test this week as we will be having our DT days on Thursday and Friday BUT you still have homework to complete on homophones and numbers to one hundred in your homework books, please hand in on Friday as normal. 

We will collect in reading folders on Friday also, please check at home and return any books that might be hiding around the house before the end of term. 

Even though we might be thinking about the summer holiday and winding down, we still have some work to complete. In our final science lesson on weather we will be making suncatchers. If you have any circular plastic tubs we could use (see photo) we would be very grateful. 

Tuesday is scheduled to be sports day (weather permitting), children should come to school in suitable PE kit and shoes but wear a t-shirt of their house colour, red for Dragons, green for Sprites, blue for Griffins and yellow for Phoenixes. If you are unsure of your child's house please ask. 

Even though we are having our DT days on Thursday and Friday cricket coaching will be as normal so children should still wear their PE kit on Thursday please.

Many thanks 

Mrs W. 

Anyone for cricket?

Welcome new Hurricanes 

We were so impressed with our new Year 1 and 2s today, both those already in our school and those who are joining us in September.  We started the day with some circle time to help get to know each other. Children were then able to choose independently alongside completing activities with an adult. This afternoon everyone made a birthday card for a secret person (to be revealed in the new academic year) before ending our day with a fruit snack and story in the story garden and some playtime outside. 

New children took home an ‘All About Me’ booklet to complete at home with parents. If these could please be returned before the end of term they will help us get to know and prepare for your children joining us. 

Thank you from Mrs Winter and Mrs Sutherland 

Capacity and volume

A practical maths lesson today. We have been thinking about measuring and how we measure different things, length, weight or mass, temperatures and now capacity and volume. What is the difference? Capacity is the amount of liquid a container can hold, volume is how much space a liquid takes up. 

We explored ordering containers according to their capacity then thought about appropriate vessels to transfer liquids. Would you fill a bucket with the cup or the spoon? 

Jolly Geographers 

This term Hurricane class are learning about the continents and oceans of the world. Today children used books and the internet to research information and find out facts about each continent to complete their fact sheets.
