Weekly newsletter 19th July 2019

Even though we haven’t finished reading the Faraway Tree we have really enjoyed the stories. We have created our own magical land at the top of the tree this week. From ‘rainbow bat land’ to ‘doom land’, there was a wide variety, full of imagination. Not sure I would visit some of the lands though!

We are gradually winding things up for the end of year. On Monday could everyone bring in a plastic bag to put books in as we’ll send everything home for you? Also if your child would like to bring in a game or small toy to share to share on Monday or Tuesday that would be fine. No expensive electronic gadgets though please, and your child needs to make sure it’s well looked after. Can you check at home for any books, story sack items and labels in clothing to ensure everyone has the correct things please?

Please visit if you can,the local library to enter the summer reading challenge Space Chase, Summer Reading Challenge 2019. We will celebrate their success in September. Every year there’s a different theme. The Summer Reading Challenge 2019 theme is Space Chase, an out-of-this-world adventure inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

‘Children taking part in the Challenge will join our super space family, The Rockets, for a thrilling mission to track down books nabbed by mischievous aliens! You can sign up at your local library, and then read six library books of your choice to complete the Challenge. There are exclusive rewards to collect along the way, and it’s FREE to take part! The Summer Reading Challenge website helps you keep track of your reading all year round: find new books to read, take part in competitions and mini challenges, and play games.’

It has been a wonderful year, thank you for all the support and encouragement with our learning journey, and we are all looking forward to going to greater things next year together!

 

Field Day

We were blessed with amazing weather for our Field trip day this week. We really are very lucky to have the use of the field, which at this time of year was full of meadow grass and teeming with minibeasts.

We set off in the morning, everyone carrying equipment needed for the setup of base camp. We crept through the ‘secret’ gate and then trekked ‘for ages’ up through the meadow, stopping to admire the butterflies and grasshoppers before choosing our base camp area.

After we had set up the small tent village we rushed off to explore. We filled in mini beast hunt sheets, decorated twigs with wild grasses and flowers, played hide and seek               ( very successful in long grass), and generally just enjoyed being altogether outside. We trekked back to school for lunch and then back out to nature. We enjoyed a mini picnic of fairy cakes and lollies before breaking camp and trekking tiredly home.
