Below is the grid that identifies what clubs we will be offering after Easter up until the final full week before May
  half term. The grid shows what is running on what day and how many places are available for each club. These
  clubs will go ‘live’ on Wisepay on Monday 25t March and will remain so until they are full.

  If you have trouble signing up to clubs on Wisepay, please see our office as soon as possible- they can help you
  to use the system to sign up to the club(s) of your choice.

  As always, we are interested to hear of other clubs that our children would be interested in taking part in and so
  if you have any feedback, please see Mrs Armstrong and she will do her best to facilitate any feasible ideas
  ready for next half term.

It is vital for your child to reach their potential that they come to
school every day. Learning starts at 8.45am (8.30 or 12.30 for Navy
Blue Class) and every minute a child is late is a missed opportunity
for learning and therefore punctuality is incredibly important as well.
Our whole school target for attendance is 97% and this is something
we will be striving very hard to achieve.

Each week, we track the percentage of attendance across the school
and announce it in our Friday assemblies. We will also be sending
home the information so you can keep track of how close we are to
meeting our target.

Class                      Weekly % Attendance

Reception                  98.4%

Year 1                     97.5%

Year 2                     95.7%

Year 3                     92.5%

Year 4                     94.2%

Year 5                     94.7%

Year 6                     92.9%

 Well done to Reception who are our greatest attendees this week!

This Week’s
                          Learning in
                           Ruby Class

 This Week:
 We have been looking at animals and their young and looked at all
 the animals on the farm. We had different animal puzzles to
 complete. We     also   decorated   farm   animals   using   different
 materials.

 Next Week:
  We will still be looking at animals and their young. We will have
    pigs in mud. In the garden we will create tractors using milk
   crates and will also investigate washing farm animals that have
                          been covered in mud.

             At Home
                You could go to the library and look at
               different animal books. We will be looking
          at “Peekaboo Moo” and “Doing the animal bop” book

Makaton
                             This week’s
                         Makaton, is “Who”
                          and “What”. You
                         could practice these
                          with your child at
                                home.

This Week’s Learning in Navy Blue Class
                                       Hello parents and carers!
 We have had another great week in Navy Blue class. We have continued our fairy tale theme, this week we
  have read Cinderella. The Children have had opportunities to make crowns and glass slippers. Build a new
                      castle for Cinderella, and explore a small world Cinderella scene.

We enjoyed going to forest school this week where we discovered the pond had acquired some frog spawn!
The children were excited to look at it and talk about what will happen to it over the next few weeks.

                         Because of the rain we had lots of fun in the mud too!

                       Mrs Spriggs kindly gave us some strawberry plants from her garden which we
                             planted in pots. We cannot wait for them to grow!

                      Next Week:
                        We will be thinking about Easter and we will have some EGG-
                           straordinary learning planned!
At Home:
  Can you help your child hold a pencil or pen correctly? Can you help them to make marks on paper?
   they can practice their drawing and writing anywhere! Talk to them about what they are drawing
                               and of course, let them bring in anything they do at home to show us!

This week’s learning in Jet Black Class
The Phase 3 phonics sounds that we have learnt are: j, v, w, x, y, z, zz, qu, ch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee and igh, oa,
oi, oo (long), oo (short), ow, ar, air, ear. If your child does not recognise any of these sounds please go on
youtube and show them the Mr Thorne does Phonics video clips and play the sound they do not know.

New sounds we will be learning next week are- er, ur, or and ure.

We have also learnt the tricky words: I, no, go, to, the, into, are, my, she, he and we.

By the end of next week we will have learnt all of our Phase 2 and 3 phonics sounds ready for Year 1. We
will be revising and recapping these sounds until we are confident in reading and writing them (applying
them). I am incredibly proud of the children’s hard word and the parent’s commitment to attending sessions
and reading/writing with your child at home.

This week in Literacy we have been extending the children’s writing skills by writing not one but two
sentences! The children should now know that we start a sentence with a capital letter, as well as capital
letters for their names. When reading a story book to your child this week please can you highlight this by
getting your child to find the full stops. I am sure they will be great capital letter detectives.

This week in Maths we have be securing the children’s knowledge of doubling and adding single digit
numbers. The children have also been subtracting/taking away single digit numbers. Please encourage your
child to do this at home in fun ways such as I have 5 smarties you took 3, how many are left? The more
practical the activity the easier it becomes for the children to understand and remember.

Next week in Literacy we will be secretly writing cards to our loved ones in order to celebrate Mother’s
Day. During these discussions we will be talk about who is special to us in our family and the celebration
that every family is different but love is love. If you feel your child will need extra support with this topic
please talk to a member of the Jet Black team. We will also be making soap next week. Please encourage
your child to talk about this process as I presume it will be something new for all of them, how exciting.

 Thanks for your continued support,
 Miss Gale
