14th September 2018

We have had a great first full week in Van Gogh - enjoying Forest School, PE and much more. We will continue to go over to the Forest School every Wednesday until half term so if you haven’t already brought wellies in, please can we have them for Wednesday. Reading books have gone home this week, along with Home School diaries. Some people have already started with their spellings which is great; please practise the number stories as well.

The morning line up is going much more smoothly, however when the whistle goes can parents allow their children to line up independently.

Many thanks

7th September 2018 

We have had a fantastic few days in our new classroom and all the children have been amazing. Our topic for this half term is India; which we started with a book called Ganesha’s Sweet Tooth.

As promised we are continuing Forest School sessions in Key Stage One. Over this half term Van Gogh class will be having their Forest School sessions on Wednesday afternoons. We will be getting mucky so they can bring a change of clothes if you’d prefer, they will need trousers and a long sleeved top with wellies or sturdy footwear such as walking boots, along with a waterproof coat. Please do not go to any expense, if you have any problem with any of the clothing please come to see me at the end of the day. If you would like more information please visit the Forest School section on our website.

We are looking forward to our first full week with lots of exciting learning ahead.
