The Crocodiles have been having lots of fun over the last few weeks with our topic on Explorers. We started off by finding out about how Christopher Columbus landed in America, and learnt the rhyme 'In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue'.
We have now moved on to Neil Armstrong's landing on the Moon. We have watched the footage of the Apollo 11 landing and listened to Neil Armstrong's famous quote as he stepped out of the Eagle. This week we have also dressed up as astronauts and used the green screen to film our own Moon landings using the ipads! We will be showing these films at our Open Afternoon on Friday 21st October. Please join us in the Crocodiles classroom from 2:30 to share our work and watch our amazing films!
Thank you for your continued support with reading and homework tasks. As you know we are now giving homework on a double-sided sheet with a Maths task on one side and an English task on the other. This will be given on a Friday each week and should be returned the following Thursday. It is great to see how many children have been completing homework and reading each week. This week we have given the children a card containing common words to learn to read by sight. Please practise these regularly with your child, and tick the words they can read without sounding out. We will check words in school and add new words once these can all be read by sight. We hope your child will enjoy challenging themselves to read their words!
Finally, letters have been sent out for you to book appointments for Parent Consultations in the first week after half term (Tuesday 1st Nov-Friday 4th Nov). Please complete the slip and return it so we can arrange a suitable time for you to discuss your child's progress.
As ever, if you have any worries or queries please pop in to see us.
We look forward to seeing you next Friday, 21st October to share our work,
Miss Wheatley, Mrs Amos and Miss Cowell.
