A Message from Year 2:

Birds of a feather flock together…

Through the English curriculum the children in year two were able to learn about how they can reduce, reuse and recycle everyday items to help cut down on the amount of waste we throw away each year. They were able to discover ways in which we can look after our planet and help our wildlife survive. We have seen several birds local to Enfield (sparrows, robins, starlings, black birds, pigeons, robins and magpies) and are keeping an eye out for the gorgeous goldfinch which has been spotted locally. With all the food we provided the birds with this year, we are expecting to see some plump well-fed birds in the coming months.

A gentle reminder

Our parent/teacher meetings will be held in March and can be booked via the Arbor App. Your meeting will last ten minutes, and it is important that we discuss your child’s progress with you.

Please ensure that you make an appointment. 

 

A Message from Year 1:

The children have been busy completing their hand puppets for D and T. They have completed their design sheets and shown their fine motor skills by using the running stitch to join both parts. They looked back at their designs to carefully complete the face and body of their puppets so that it looked the same. Children chose their own materials and tools to complete this.

“I had to check my design carefully and then choose the right colours” – Halifatu

“I am good at this sewing!” – Moise

The next stage is to test and evaluate their puppet and thinking about what they like and what they might change next time.

A quick reminder

Year one are visiting Durants Park this half term. Please can you make sure that you have sent back the permission slip to your child’s class teacher or the office. The trip is free, so no payment is required.

Thank you

 

A message from Reception:

We hope everyone had a fun and restful half term week. 

This half term we are excited to be starting our forest school sessions. Despite the weather being quite wet in our first session last week, the children really enjoyed exploring the field, looking for signs of Spring coming soon as well as digging for worms and making wands with sticks they found outside. 

Please could we remind parents the children must have wellington boots on a Wednesday and a waterproof coat with a hood as we will go out even if it is raining! 

We will be looking over the children's reading records this half term and also carrying out our next phonic assessment to see the wonderful progress your child is making. 

Please do read with your child and practise the phonic sounds and tricky words we have sent home, regularly through the week - We recommend 5 times a week. It really does show in the progress the children make, who is regularly practising at home and those who are not.

We look forward to welcoming parents in for our story cafe in a couple of weeks time as well as joining us in our last song sack session this term- more info to follow shortly. 

 

Multi Skills Festival: 

Some of our children were lucky enough to be invited along to the Multi Skills Festival held at Lea Valley Sports Centre earlier this month. They had a great time learning new P.E games and skills.

 Online Safety means you have to be safe on the internet – Year 1

World Book Week: change of dates

We will be celebrating World Book week in the week starting 4th March 2024.

On Thursday 7th March (World Book Day), we are inviting children to dress up as storybook characters if you have the book at home that matches their character, it would be great to bring that in too. Remember reading bed time stories with your child is a precious opportunity for quality time together, and helps to foster a deep bond between you both. Does your child have a favourite bedtime story? We welcome children dressing up in their pyjamas on World Book Day to represent the importance of bedtime stories.

Year 1 team would like to invite you to join them for a special story time with the teachers and afterwards, to help your child choose two books to take home, which you will be able to keep, from the Children’s Book Project. Year 1 sessions will be held in the morning, 9:00 – 9:30 in the library in small groups. The sessions will take place between 4th March - 12th March 2024 - You will have received a letter to inform you of your day.

All children will be taking part in many fun activities promoting the love of reading. Nursery and Year 2 children will choose their next set of books from the Children’s Book Project with their class teachers and learning assistants.

Reception will host a Story Café for parents on Thursday 14th March at 2:15pm and you will be able to choose new books from the Children’s Book Project with your child to take home and keep.

Let’s start brainstorming dressing up ideas!!!
