Happy wet Friday
We hope you have all had a good week at home and have been able to enjoy the work in our "home learning" section. Please send us photos via email of anything you want to share and Mike will upload them on to our Blackmarston Twitter page.
Take care and have a wonderful weekend,
Cate & Lucy
We hope you are all staying well. Your home learning is being uploaded ready for each day and you have all been emailed with information on how to access it. Paper copies of some work has been posted to you today, so should arrive soon. If you have any problems, please send Cate or Lucy an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We do not want you to feel any pressure at this difficult time to complete all of the learning. It is there as suggestions or options which you can choose from, at a pace that is right for your child. If you have any fun and enjoy some activities, we would love to hear from you. Likewise, if there is any work you would like to share with us, please do, we would love to see it and we can add it into the website.
Take care and stay safe,
Lucy & Cate.
We hope you have all had a good Friday and perhaps some of you were able to enjoy "Children In Need Day" at home instead of at school. Did anyone get to join in with Joe Wicks' 24 hour workout? We didn't but Cate did go for a run and came back with a very red face!
Cate will be sending your home learning packs on Monday so you should get them very soon.
We will be uploading the daily lesson plans, symbols and some videos shortly.
We will be focusing some of our work on the lovely book called "Outside My Window" written by Linda Ashman and illustrated by Jamey Christoph. Most activities will be based around the home and what you can see and hear from your window. We are sure Wrens Class will love it. The story is on YouTube if you want to take a peek before next week.
Have a wonderful weekend all and stay safe.
Cate & Lucy
Well we are really enjoying our topic of The Queen! The children have loved the books we have looked at so far, in particular "The Queens Hat". We looked at a fabulous PowerPoint and acted it out. JoJo found it very funny to wear the Queen's hat!
Wrens Class do like their books so in connection to our work on "Letters and Sounds" we have begun to use a daily book basket. In the basket it has a range of topic, rhyming and story books. We all sit really nicely looking at the books, sharing with our friends and adults. We are beginning to be real book worms!
Welcome back to Wren's Class after half-term. The children were happy to be in school yesterday and we were greeted with lots of smiles on their arrival. The children are settling back into our class routines and starting their new topic for this half-term, 'The Queen'. We are currently building a palace in our classroom and are focusing on the story 'The Queen's hat' this week. For more information on our learning this half-term, please see our topic web attached.

It has been lovely seeing all of the children in Wren’s class and we are really having lots of fun getting to know each other. In our class, we have two teachers, Lucy who works on a Monday and Friday and Cate who works Tuesday to Thursday. If you have a message for either of us, please pop it into the home-school book, as we communicate with each other frequently and we will get back to you as soon as we can. A fantastic team of teaching assistants support us throughout the week. They are Teresa, Sharon, Chloe and Bryony. Jo also supports us when the teachers are having PPA time (time to do paperwork).
So far this term, we have been teaching our recovery curriculum with the topic ‘together’. We are focusing on getting to know the children, supporting them to feel safe and secure in school again and helping them to get used to being together and form relationships. We have shared some wonderful stories together, including ‘Hello friend’, ‘All my treasures’, ‘Together’ and ‘What a wonderful world’ so far. We also painted a class treasure box, which we are using to add collections of objects that make us happy. It will also be used as a talking point, filled with photographs of our happy school memories, which we can share and remember. Next week we are sharing the story of the ‘Colour Monster’ and will be exploring our emotions and linking them to colours. We will be making sensory bottles with our choice of ingredients. As the term progresses we will also focus on some other wonderful books, including ‘Here we are’.
Throughout our days we have been playing and interacting together, practising our listening skills and starting to form relationships with the adults and our friends. It has been lovely to see some budding friendships already starting to form in such a short time.
We have been taking our learning outdoors as much as we can, exploring colours in our environment and matching symbols to our environment. We are looking forward to the development of the forest school area in the playground and cannot wait to enjoy it.
It has been a great start to our term in Wren’s Class and we are looking forward to a happy year together.
