We have made a great start to our new half term. The children have come back with a spring in their step. They were bursting to share all of their half term adventures.


In English, we have been looking at how adjectives can change the meaning of a sentence when we add a suffix to it, for example, the pussycat would not harm the owl because he was harmless.


In maths, the year 1’s been learning how to use our knowledge of grouping to work out groups of 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. Year 2’s have been learning all about multiplication.


Your challenge is to be able to count forwards and backwards in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s!


In Come and See we have been talking about how mass is a special meal and how we can feel close to God when we are at mass.


This week we had a visit from the Ninja Warrior champion Jonny Urszuly. We were very excited to attack the assault course that he set up for us. We showed true Robin’s grit and determination and had a great time showing our balancing and climbing skills. The children were all supporting each other as they took their turn on the equipment – brilliant team spirit shown by all of the children.


Our Wednesday Worder this week was Emilia. She brought in a book of bible stories to share with the class. We read some of the stories that we have shared so far during our Come and See lessons. Thank you Emilia for bringing your special book in to share with your friends.


Our Ozzie’s Way Champion of the Week is Caleb. He is a caring and kind member of our class who looks after everyone else before thinking about himself. He is always there to help if someone needs him. He is such a fantastic role model for the other children. Well done Caleb, you really deserve the honour this week.


We used our knowledge of symmetry to create many butterflies to put on Miss Lea’s get-well card and sent it to her with lots of love and good wishes for a speedy recovery!


Reminder that it is World Book Day, we are very much looking forward to coming to school dressed as your favourite book character, you could even bring in the book to share with the class. We would also like to see your potatoes inspired by book characters, remember there is a prize of a £10 book token for the winner of Key Stage 1. We look forward to your creative and imaginative entries.


We are looking forward to hearing all about your weekend adventures. We hope that the rain and sleet will stop and we will be able to get outside for a run round and some fresh air.


Mrs Fox, Mrs Davies and Miss Lea
