It was lovely to hear that the class had worked hard and shown just how well they can behave while I was off ill this week – well done 4FM!
This week, the class percentage for attendance was 99.4% and our handshake total was a healthy 10.
It seems that our little patch of potatoes is taking its time to grow! It is not without effort though because Grace and Olivia have been giving the spuds a good jug or two of water daily. We plan to build up the compost around the plants next week in a bid to get the plants sending side shoots out. These will then, hopefully, develop into potatoes.
It would be remiss of me not to mention the day that we spent last week at the Elizabethan Academy where the children experienced some health and wellbeing classes. I think the outright favourite was the yoga class – for some reason, the children liked lying down and relaxing!! They all made another healthy dish and also a lavender eye pillow.
The children are starting to work really hard on their spelling and I can sense a real keenness to do well. We are now learning our 10th and final set of 10 spellings (Nadira is on her 4th set) and in a few weeks it will be random words from the whole list! Please work with your child if they have a set of flashcards or a box of letters as this will help their visual memory develop for these pretty awkward words.
Just a quick reminder that PE kit is needed in school – white top and plain navy, grey or black bottoms and a fresh pair of plimsolls or trainers. Socks if necessary.
Have a great Bank Holiday everyone!
