We have had a great week in Robin’s this week! We started the week excited about the book characters that we were going to come dressed as for World Book Day on Thursday.


In English we have continued with our text ‘The Owl and the Pussy Cat.’ We have worked hard on finding rhyming words, securing our learning with contracted words and conjunctions. Our challenge has been to use a variety of our contractions within our writing across all of our subjects.


In maths, we have been learning our 2’s, 5’s, and 10 times tables. The year 2’s have been drawing, writing the repeated addition and converting this repeated addition into a multiplication sentence using the multiplication sign. We now need to be secure with our times tables so that we can begin to apply our learning in a variety of problem solving and reasoning contexts. The Year 1’s have been applying their counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s skills in a variety of contexts.


Your challenge is to be able to count forwards and backwards in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s and year 2’s to learn your 2’s, 5’s and 10 times tables.


In Come and See we have been concluding our topic about Meals. We have been remembering the special meal shared at church and made links with Jesus sharing his last meal with his disciples – The Last Supper. We begin our new topic on Monday which is ‘Change.’ This topic leads us nicely to Easter where we focus on how we can change to be more like Jesus.


Thursday was a very exciting time in school. There was a true ‘book character buzz’ around school. Robin’s were amazing! The variety of costumes were brilliant to see. The children thoroughly enjoyed talking and sharing who they had come to school dressed as and why. They showed a genuine love for books and the atmosphere in class was fun and energetic.

Our Wednesday Worder this week was Alissia. The Wednesday Word this week was ‘encouragement.’ Alissia always encourages everyone to do their best and make the right choices. Well done Alissia, we are very proud of you!


Our Ozzie’s Way Champion of the Week is Atherton. He is a deserving winner this week, he has worked hard to learn his times tables and put his hand up in class to share his answers and ideas. He is caring and considerate to the needs and feelings of all his friends. He is always there to help and offer a kind smile when someone needs one. You can always rely on Atherton to cheer you up with his infectious smile. Well done Atherton – we are very proud of you!


Reminder our Good Shepherd Lenten activities will be in full swing on Monday:

Monday 9th March – EYFS and Key Stage 1 to bring in cakes to sell. Cakes will be being sold for 20p each.

Friday 13th March – SPORTS RELIEF – come to school dressed in sporty clothes for a donation.

RAFFLE TICKETS – Tickets for the Easter raffle are being sold for 20p each. We really need prizes for the children to win in the raffle – please send in a prize to be put into the raffle.


We are looking forward to hearing about your weekend adventures hopefully the sun will shine, and we can all get outside and blow the cobwebs away.


Mrs Fox, Mrs Davies and Miss Lea
