This week it is ‘Sports Week’ at Priory, in Neptune Class we are combining it with gardening week. Some of the things we will be doing are – planting seeds, creating a herb garden, making grass heads and caterpillars and creating our own magical, miniature gardens.
In literacy the children will be planning and evaluating their miniature gardens, writing labels for our garden and writing recipes in the mud kitchen.
In maths we will be applying our number knowledge during our gardening activities. The children will also be looking at place value and number problems whilst carrying out a practical investigation using toy cars and cardboard tube.
For homework this week please could the children draw and name a fairy, goblin or gnome which could live in their magical, miniature garden they are making this week. This will support them with their story writing next week.
Thank you to everyone that completed the technology questionnaire that I sent home. This is an important part of the children’s assessment, as so many children are able to access a wider range of technology at home. Please could I ask the remaining parents to complete the questionnaire? I have additional copies if you need one and I am happy to help you complete it either at the start or end of the school day – it only takes a couple of minutes.
Remember the children can come dressed in their PE kit all week and will need to wear the correct coloured T-shirt for their house team on Tuesday. Please could they also bring in old clothes in a named bag to wear at school next week for our gardening activities?
Finally, please can I ask you to ensure that you apply sun cream to your children before school and send them in with a sun hat and water bottle?
