Welcome to Otters!
This week in Otters...
Parents evenings went very well last week and we hope you all went away feeling happy. This week the children have had a fantastic week filled with lots of different relatives, from cousins to grannies.
As part of the relative week the children did activities such as drawing family portraits, learning about them when they were little and painting their pebbles as part of our whole school allotment project. The whole week has had a lovely community feel, which the children have really enjoyed.
Aside from these lovely activities the children have still been working hard on their phonics, literacy and maths. The children have worked a lot on shape for the last couple of weeks which has proven a popular topic with lots of practical games which involve learning the shape names and properties. The children have become more confident in using their knowledge to test each other about different shapes that they have learnt about.
In Grammar we have been revisiting what a noun is and how we identify a proper noun. The children have been using their observation skills to seek things out and decide if its a noun or not.
Children in need
We have had great fun this week with colouring competitions and various other activities and hope that we have managed to do our bit towards raising money for this worthy cause.
The children look fantastic today dressed up in their spots and colours. Here are the winners of the colouring competition, who have one a voucher for the cake sale.
Thank you to all the relatives who have popped in to see us this week and enjoyed the activities with the children. It is lovely that we can invite you in to enjoy the children's learning with them.
