Welcome Back to Term 3!
We hope you all had an enjoyable break and are ready for the term ahead. Thank you so much for all your generous Christmas gifts that you gave to the whole Lime class team. They were very much appreciated.
PE this term will be on Mondays and Wednesdays and children need to come to school in correct PE kits.
Bug Club: This is a really useful way for children to practise their reading skills. It would be really helpful if children could use this more, especially the Bug activities for each book as this will help them to progress further with their comprehension skills.
Home Learning: Books will be coming home on
Friday and is due in on Monday 6th February.
Reading Books: From next Friday (13th January), most children will be coming home with a new level book bag book which will correspond to the book they are reading in school during our guided reading sessions.
Please do not hesitate to speak to us or email on email@example.com should you have any questions.
Thank you for your continued support.
Use these games to practise your phonic skills.
Well done for all of the fantastic reading at home this term. Please continue to read books at home with your children during the Christmas break and we will send reading scheme books home when we return in January.
Tuesday 13th December - West Malling’s Festive Sporting Extravaganza!
On Tuesday 13th December your child will be taking part in West Malling’s Festive Sporting Extravaganza!
Please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE Kit and in their castle team t-shirt.
If your child doesn’t have a t-shirt of the correct colour, then a plain white t-shirt is fine. Castle team colours: Bodiam-blue, Hever-yellow, Leeds-red, and Dover-green
NO PE KITS ON THURSDAY 3RD NOVEMBER DUE TO SCHOOL PHOTOS - PLEASE COME TO SCHOOL IN UNIFORM.
As part of our science learning, we went on an Autumn hunt around our beautiful school grounds to look for signs of Autumn. We found yellow leaves, conkers, seeds and acorns.
In maths, we have been learning about the greater than > less than < and equal to = signs. Remember: the crocodile always eats the biggest number!
Today we were thinking about the different parts of our body. Using a picture from our Power of Reading book ‘Here we Are’ as a starting point, we thought about the parts of our body that are on the outside and the parts that we can’t see on the inside. We had fun drawing around each other to label our own diagram.
After reading the poem ‘Out and About’ we had a go at creating our own class poem. We used our experience of exploring in Forest School to write something we saw, heard or felt, then we put our ideas together to make our poem.
