Welcome to Bluebell class.

Our school value this term is Perseverance and our topic is Change.

We have been celebrating Spring in Bluebell class! It has been very exciting in our class, we had 'Living Eggs' come and bring us 9 chicks to look after. We all loved learning and looking after them! We also enjoyed a great garden cleanup on Saturday 25th March, it was so much fun taking care of our garden all together. Thank you to all the adults and children who attended.

Some of the fun expected this term…

  • We have been exploring different changes in our environment, which helps us understand the world around us.
  • From this, we are celebrating changes and enjoying the warmer weather.
  • In Bluebell class- we are being kind, working together, and making lots of new friends.
  • Thinking about our own feelings and the feelings of others.
  • Supporting the children’s developing characteristics of effective learning e.g. confidence, self-confidence, persistence, imagination, problem solving, working together and concentrating.
  • Exploring a range of stories.
  • We are improving our fine motor skills through creative play.
  • Continue to use our imaginations during play and exciting carpet times.
  • We are beginning to learn phonics; we have been thinking about sounds and where they come from.
  • Festivals such as Shrove Tuesday and Easter 
  • Experimenting and creating in our junk modelling area.
  • Exploring all our surroundings both indoors and outdoors, this continues to improve our moving and handling skills.

 

This week we are getting ready for Easter, therefore we are holding an Easter craft day for adults to come in and join the children on Wednesday 5th April. This is also a great time to come in and catch up on your childrens learning journeys. We hope to see you there!

 

 

 

Wishing Well Appeals

Please keep an eye on our wishing well appeal boards. Your donations of items on the board are much appreciated and are used directly for activities with the children (play-dough, cooking etc). They really do help to enhance your children’s experiences at school.   We would be especially grateful for donations of tissues during these winter months!

Coffee Mornings

Don’t forget we hold a coffee morning each Friday from 9.00 – 10.30. These are held in Daisy Class and are supported by staff from the Children’s Centre.  As always there will be singing and later in the term we will be adding some phonics sessions.  There will be lots of ideas for games to play at home, as an introduction to teaching your child to read.   Please remember that all parents are welcome! 

Things to bring to school

  • Book bag containing reading folder and free choice book from the class book box. Please don’t put other belongings in book bags as it prevents the bags from fitting in the storage box and also makes it harder for your child to find their gloves/spare clothes etc. (Reception children only.)
  • Completed phonics work in the phonics folder every Monday morning . (Reception children only.)
  • A small bag to hang on your child’s coat peg (named polythene bag is fine), containing named gloves, hat and spare clothes etc. It is much easier for your child to find their belongings independently if they are on their peg, rather than in the book bag box with 29 other identical bags.
  • A named warm coat (ideally waterproof/water resistant) as we use the outdoor area in all weathers.
  • A named jumper.
  • A named pair of wellies. We have some spare pairs in school so don’t worry if you don’t have any.

 

 

Volunteering

If you have any spare time and you would like to volunteer please come and see your child’s keyworker.  We are always very grateful for your support.

 

Donations

If you have any puzzles, games or old toys that are in good condition, we would be happy to give them a new home!  We are particularly in need of battery operated 'technology' toys with buttons to press (e.g. VTech/remote controlled cars).  Large pieces of material that can be used for our roleplay areas would also be welcomed!

 

Please come and talk to one of us if you have any questions or concerns.  After school is usually the best time to catch us for a chat as the mornings are often very busy.
