Learning Lens - 21st July 

And just like that we are at the end of the year! I cannot believe that today we have to say goodbye. It has been a wonderful year, full of laughs, learning and lots of fun! With the joys of Covid there have been some tricky times, but the children, teachers and you parents have supported each other and we made it through. We have delighted in seeing every child grow and mature this year and we are so, so proud of every single one of them. We know they will continue to be amazing on their journey through the school, and we will be watching with a continued sense of pride. We wish them all the best of luck on their adventure into Year 1 and can't wait to hear about how they are getting on. 

A huge heartfelt (and emotional) thank you for all the wonderful, kind and generous wishes, cards and gifts. We are all feeling very loved and grateful. You are a super bunch of parents and we wish you all the best going forward. Hoping you have a lovely Summer. Remember to wave and say hello as you walk down the hill in September! 

 The high lights this week have been Treat Day - so much water play! Sports Day, TV and cake time (fairy cake), seeing Year 6 in their leavers assembly and having lots of child initiated with our friends and teachers. 

There has still been a little learning in between all our exciting events - in Phonics we have continued to segment and blend reading words.  In Maths we have talked about what numbers are made up of: 8 can be 4 and 4, 5 and 3 etc. In RE we have talked about lots of the stories we have shared over the year and thought what would make RE even better: even more stories, if we can see more things (religious artefacts), learning outside and playing games were some suggestions.  In PSHE we have kept talk about next year positive and reminded the children that we will just be up the hill, we will pop down and say hello when we can and see how they are settling in to Year 1. They are with their friends, they have met their new teachers, they will still get time for child initiated and do even more exciting learning challenges!
