EMERGENCY - Alien Space Craft has Crashed in Our Playground

We arrived at school on Friday morning to discover that an alien space craft had crash landed in our playground. Crime Scene Investigators (CSI) and Special Agents were called in to determine if the sight and the aliens were safe and friendly. Year 1 classes have been chosen to look after the alien visitors until their space craft can be repaired - it could take 6 weeks to ship the parts from space! We are positive this term will be... out of this world!!

Home-learning and Daily Reading

 

Home-learning tasks are sent home on Fridays. These include spelling practice, literacy and numeracy activities which are linked to the content covered at school that week. 

We collect books weekly and reward children who have completed learning tasks.
 

Little Girl Sitting on Books
 

We also encourage your child to read daily for at least 15 minutes and read through the High Frequency Words list your child is working on.


Please sign your child's reading record book when you have read with your child.

 

 

 

PE KITS
Each week we enjoy a range of physical activities, both indoors
and outdoors. Please ensure your child's kit is labelled and returned to school.

Nightingale Class will enjoy P.E. lessons on Monday and Tuesday. 
Please remove all jewellery on these days.

STEAM CHALLENGE: Spring 1
                 

We would like to invite you to take part in our half termly STEAM challenges this year. 
These hands-on 'mini' projects will give your child an opportunity to apply their knowledge, skills and understanding of the world around them in a fun and exciting new way. Most importantly, your child will have the opportunity to work alongside their favourite teacher...
YOU! 

 

Challenge 3:  Build a snowman that won't melt on a warm winter's day!

 

Kids Building a Snowman

When snow and ice melts, it turns into water. 
That means, on a warm winter's day your snowman would melt and disappear.

 

HINT: What other materials could you use to make a snowman that 
wouldn't melt when the temperatures outside changed?

 

Challenge 1: Using household items, make a boat that will hold £1.99 without sinking

Challenge 2: Make a tasty treat using an apple!

 

A Christmas Tradition: Maria's Family

 

 

On Christmas Eve just before dinner we cut the apple.

If the apple is healthy and we can see a star has formed with seeds - 
the year ahead will be good! 

 

But if the apple is sick or rotten (or if there is a worm inside) - 
the year will not be good.

 

Thank you Maria and family for sending in your special Christmas tradition to share with us! 
We look forward to a fantastic year ahead in 2018.

Barnaby Bear's Adventures

 

 

Each week, Barnaby will choose a child to go home with for the weekend. Barnaby loves to go on adventures and loves learning about... GEOGRAPHY. If you go to the park or beach, church or a friend's house - take Barnaby with you - he likes to explore new places! Barnaby Bear has his very own scrapbook so that your child can write about your awesome adventures together. It would be great if you could take some photos or even draw some pictures of places you've visited.

 

We can't wait to hear all about your time with Barnaby Bear!

Each week at our Stand Up A Good One assembly, our teachers recognise our efforts. Congratulations to our Nightingale SAUGO Award recipients for Spring 1:

We've been learning about ordering numbers and describing positions. Mrs Jensen changed our names today and we became the 'Ordinals'!
(We're like super heroes in math!)

Barnaby and Milton in London!

After an exhausting summer setting up Nightingale class ready for year 1, Barnaby and Milton have set off on a well deserved holiday. Their first stop was in the capital city of England, London. We've enjoyed learning all about London, it's famous landmarks and people and history.
