Blog week ending 12th March

Hello there!
How lovely to be writing the end of week blog again.  However, I'm not going to write much this week.  More than anything, I want to tell you that the children have settled back in beautifully. They have come to school keen, eager, ready to learn and play and I couldn't be more proud of them all!  You may find that they are a little tired this weekend. 
In a nutshell, we've mainly concentrated on enjoying each other's company this week.  But, in addition to this...
In RWI we have begun our set 2 sounds and have learnt:  ay  as in "may I play?" and ee as in "what can you see?"  You could have a go at reinforcing these sounds this weekend if you have time. 
In our numberwork, we have recapped our teen numbers and the children have shown me the fabulous addition skills that they worked on with you at home.  I was very impressed!
Our school pond is FULL of frogs and frogspawn so we used that as an opportunity to talk about the life cycle of frogs.  I wonder if you could spot any frogspawn out on a walk this weekend?  The important words we talked about were: 
metamorphosis (children love a technical word!)
We had the chance to use the hall for PE and the children had a blast on the gym equipment.  We hope to do this again next week. 
We ended our week by thinking about the special people at home who do so much to look after us. We had lots of discussion about the different female members of our family or friends who make us happy or who we are thankful to have in our life. I hope you all enjoy your beautiful cards or wall-hangings.  They were made with love and each was unique.  
*Unfortunately do to a lack of internet this week I was unable to print out last week's(week ending 4th March) Star of the Week - this was awarded to Holly Saycell  for her fantastic contributions to work during lockdown and her super progress in all areas of writing!
*This week's star of the week goes to Isla Pagett for always being a kind friend and being a positive and active member of Pear class!
A big thank you to the McArdle family for bringing Pear class a huge box of Lego - we have loved playing with it this week! If there are old toys or puzzles etc you ever need to re-home, we are always grateful recipients! 
Looking forward to more fun next week. 
Kind regards, 
Laurie Horne-Smith
