We are so lucky at St Cleer to have such beautiful grounds. Not only is it a lovely environment to be in, it is also an extension of our classroom. The outdoors provides amazing opportunities in which to learn.
In my old school (inner city Plymouth), all we had was a concrete playground, so I still really appreciate what we have in this school.
Thank you to the parents who supplied the school with some lovely logs to sit on: they are very comfortable and allow the whole class to sit in a big circle. Mr J has been doing some great lessons with the children and I know how much they love getting outdoors.
The class have been working very hard and we are now working at the full curriculum capacity. The current situation has meant a lot of adjustments for us all, but the children have been really sensible and seem to be taking it in their stride.
I have been trying hard to catch up with all the parents on the playground or by phone, so please don`t hesitate to say hello at the beginning or end of the day. I will be ringing those of you I have not had chance to speak to over the next week or so.
A gentle reminder to the children to read at home, practise their x tables and learn their spellings (which they are given on a Monday). It is their responsibility to bring the spellings home.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and were able to get out and about and enjoy the sunshine.
Have a good week ahead.
What do you know about "The Pilgrim Fathers" and "The Mayflower?"
This is what we are going to be learning about in our Learning Adventure this week.
4/5P made a really good start last week and the children have been amazing. They all seem happy and they have settled back into school really well. We are very proud of their enthusiasm, support for each other and general all round good attitude to their learning.
For the majority, it has not been easy to come back to school after such a long break and for those who were here during the Lockdown, they have done well to adjust to another set of rules and circumstances.
This week, we will be diving back into our learning. The week will be very busy and we will be starting our work on the Pilgrim Fathers and the voyage of the Mayflower to America 600 years ago. If you want to find out more at home, please bring in your information to share with us.
Remember that we have Wild Tribe (Forest School) on Monday and that the children can wear their wild tribe clothes to school. It is going to be hot, so please be prepared for this.
A list of spellings will come home on Monday and there will be a test on Friday.
Keep reading and filling in your reading record and also work on your x tables. You need to know all of them by the end of the year.
Meanwhile, enjoy the weekend sunshine!
Welcome to 4/5P!
We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday. We hope that you have had a lovely, relaxing holiday and that you are ready to see your friends, get to know your new class and get stuck into some exciting learning. We can`t wait.
I have attached a letter that will be going to each of the Year 4/5 classes and this will give you a lot of information about the year ahead.
We will pass on the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 spelling lists next week.
Please have a relaxing weekend and bring your enthusiasm and creativity to school with you next week.
Best wishes from the 4/5P Team.
