The class are nearing the end of their second week and they seem to be settling in very well to life in Year Six.
The week began with introducing themselves to their Reception buddies for the first time. I was certainly impressed with the caring way in which they tried to help put the younger children at ease. They spent some time talking, drawing pictures and ‘played’ in some of the areas in Reception. Y6 and Reception pupils playing in the sand together – was lovely to see. Today was also a special moment when each member of the class presented their cards in assembly. Miss Ashton and I will be planning various opportunities for the children to get together during the year. However it won’t be quite every day as I know the class would like!
During the past couple of weeks, the children have begun working on portraits and proportion, with some pleasing results already. I have also been pleased with the information gathered by pupils to help them with their biographies. There will be lots of different, interesting lives to read about including portraits to view, in time for Parents Evening.
This half term as part of our RE topic we are hoping to visit and compare two local churches. Letters will be sent home when dates are finalised. The children should also have brought home a letter for our ‘Evacuee Experience’ Day as well. Spare letters are available in class if needed.
