Finally, it's the end of the school year!

I have had a fantastic last year with Class 15 to complete my teaching career. It has been a pleasure to have been able to share your amazing children with you and to watch them grow and develop. Thank you so much too for all your support, patience and humour in every way.

Another HUGE THANK YOU for all the wonderful gifts, cards, warm wishes and hugs. I am extremely grateful and very touched by all of them.

Week beginning 17th July 2017

I had the most fantastic surprise last Tuesday morning when I was asked to unveil the name of the brilliant pirate ship in the Key Stage 1 playground. I was amazed when I took the cover off and 'The Jolly Wenborn' was revealed.

I would like to say again a great big thank you to everyone involved.

I'm sure time has literally flown ..... and here we are starting our last week as Class 15!

It was lovely to see all of you on Friday during Open Afternoon and everybody seemed to be enjoying sharing the children's work with them.

I know you also took the opportunity to go and meet the Year 1 staff for next year. Tomorrow the work will begin to strip the classroom! As soon as possible, please could the children each bring in a large carrier bag or a bag for life, so they can bring all their work home.

We have a few little bits of work to complete this week before the children bring their books home. On Monday we will also be collecting in all the reading books, so the children can choose a new book which we will be kept at school and passed on to their Year 1 teacher. 

The children have had some impeccable behaviour and worked very hard, as usual, so the marble jar has it's 25 marbles in, ready for another 'treat day', which will be on Thursday 20th July.

 The children can wear their own clothes and we wil be going to watch Year 1/2 take part in their Medieval Games. Look out for some information this week.

Friday is our last day, which will include 'Leavers Assembly' in the morning and our final day to share together. I'm sure their will be a few tears, especially from me!! 

For the last time ...... 

as always, thank you for your continuing support. If you have a concern or would like to talk about anything, please don't hesitate to come and find us.

Week beginning 10th July 2017

I hope you have all had a lovely long weekend and enjoyed the warm sunny weather.

Can you believe there are only 2 weeks left of this school year! Where has the time gone?!

It was super to see you all at Sports Day and we hope you enjoyed the busy afternoon of races and activities. It was certainly very HOT!! All the children were brilliant and took part with great enthusiasm. There are some lovely photos in the Picture Gallery on the Home Page. Here are our picture records of the day ~ 

We had some new arrivals last week too ~ each of our butterflies emerged from their chrysalis! They hatched over a two day period and were very beautiful with their lovely patterned wings. The last butterfly emerged on Thursday morning and Freddie, Leo M. and Owen saw it crawl out, with it's curled damp wings ~ amazing! In the afternoon, we released the butterflies in the school garden and made wishes as they flew away.

This week we are nearly back to a normal week. After taking the register tomorrow morning, we are vacating our classroom for the new children to have their pre-school visit. We will be spending some of the day in one of the Year 6 classrooms, while they are out on a visit, but will be back in our room ready for home-time. We are going to be busy making sure all our work is completed before the end of the year and we also have an activity to do for our 'Learning Journey'. 

 On Friday it is Open Afternoon, between 1.30 and 4.30, when you have the opportunity to come and look around the classroom and at all the children's work, which I'm sure they will enjoy sharing with you, and also to go and visit their Year 1 classroom and meet their next teacher, either Mrs Bettle or Mrs Wood and Mrs Viggers. I hope you will be able to come and I look forward to seeing you. 

As always, thank you for your continuing support. If you have a concern or would like to talk about anything, please don't hesitate to come and find us.

Week beginning 3rd July 2017

What a fantastic time we have just had during our 'Pilgrimage: More Than A Journey? week. All the children were great at listening and found out about different faiths and feelings.

One of the highlights of the week was the 'Pilgrimage Walk' which we shared with Mrs Thompson and her Year 3 children on Thursday. This included visiting four different 'stations' ~ Sorry, Thank You, I Love You and Please ~ where the children had to complete an activity. Each of the older children parterned one of our children and guided them around the various activities. They were super role-models and it was lovely to see how they all got along.

After our lovely afternoon, the children took the Year 6 children in Class 1 on the 'Pilgrimage Walk',explaining and showing them how to do the activities. They were brilliant teachers and we had another super experience.

We also enjoyed the story of 'Noah's Ark' and read and watched some lovely versions. After talking about Noah's journey, the children have done creative work to make a super display, counted the animals in twos and are writing the story to re-tell it in their own words. 

This week is going to be busy too because it is Sports Day week!! 

We are having a practise on Monday morning when the children will get into their House Team groups ready to have a go at the 'potted sports activities' on the field ready for sports day on Wednesday. We hope you can come and join us on Wednesday afternoon at 1.15 so you can watch the children run, jump and have a great time joining in the different activities.

Please don't forget it is Inset Day on Friday. I hope the weather will be dry and sunny so you can enjoy the day together.

As always, thank you for your continuing support. If you have a concern or would like to talk about anything, please don't hesitate to come and find us.

Week beginning 26th June 2017

It was lovely to see lots of you enjoying 'Midsummer Madness' on Friday evening. Everybody was having a super time, despite the weather being a little overcast and breezy. Where had all the sunshine disappeared to?!

We enjoyed the sunshine last week, even though it was a little bit too warm on a couple of days for us to concentrate! We still had a full week ~ making a story-map of 'What the Ladybird Heard', doubling numbers and hunting for mini-beasts in the Wild Area ~ busy, busy, busy!! 

Take a look ~

.... busy with the giant dominoes doubling numbers ....

..... busy in the Wild Area ....

This week it's a whole school RE week which will include lots of visitors and joint sessions with other classes. The main theme is 'Pilgrimage: More Than A Journey? and we will be focusing on the story of 'Noah's Ark' and 'What was Noah's journey like?'

In Literacy, we will discuss what happened to Noah on his journey and the children will write about the events, while in Maths, we will be counting the animals in 2's and sequencing the even numbers. There will also be lots of creative activities so we can create a lovely big picture of Noah and his family, the Ark and the animals going in 'two by two'.

As always, thank you for your continuing support. If you have a concern or would like to talk about anything, please don't hesitate to come and find us.

They were all fantastic in our Year Group Assembly today ~ super singing, clear speaking, great behaviour and just generally brilliant!!

We are all VERY PROUD of them and I know you must be too.

Thank you so much for coming and sharing the assembly with us.

Inbetween rehearsals,the children were busy making their repeating snail shell patterns and using the i-pads for different activities.

This week in Literacy, we are reading 'What The Ladybird Heard' and the children will be making a story-map showing what happens.  

In Maths, we are looking at the concept of 'doubling' and the children will be working out how many spots on ladybirds or butterflies and writing their own number sentences.

Week beginning 12th June 2017

It was great to see everybody this week and hear and read about all the exciting things you did, in your lovely News Books. The children enjoyed showing them and choosing their favourite pages and I enjoyed looking at them. 

Despite the mixed weather, we have had a busy and productive week inside and out. We read 'The Hungry Caterpillar' and then focused on the life-cycle of a butterfly, which all the children sequenced and labelled.

When the rain stopped, the children went in groups to examine a variety of different plants and flowers in the school garden and the Wild Area, and after looking at them carefully, the plants were photographed. The children then did some amazing pastel drawings of their chosen flower or plant. Take a look, I hope you agree!

This week in Literacy, we are continuing with our 'Mini-beast' theme and reading ~

The children will be thinking of their own ideas for Norman's shell and writing super describing words. In Maths, we are looking at re-enforcing 2D shapes and the children will be designing Norman a new repeating pattern shell. Norman will be looking very smart!!

We are also busy with preparations for our Year Group assembly on Friday 16th June at 9.15. The children sang beautifully and spoke clearly in today's rehearsal. It will be lovely if you can come and join us.

As always, thank you for your continuing support. If you have a concern or would like to talk about anything, please don't hesitate to come and find us.

I hope you have all had a lovely holiday and enjoyed the sunshine! I am looking forward to hearing about all the super things you have been doing and seeing what you have written and drawn in your 'News Book'.

This week we will be introducing our new topic 'Mini-beasts'. We hope the weather stays fine, so we can go and observe the plants and flowers in the school garden and wild-area and also look for 'mini-beasts'. The children will be making observational drawings of the plants and flowers.

In Literacy, we will be reading a favourite story all the children will know ~ 'The Hungry Caterpillar', where we will look at the sequence of the story and the life cycle of the butterfly. 

To continue with this theme in Maths, we will be looking at symmetry. The children will  be examining pictures of butterflies, particularly their wings and the symmetrical patterns. 

We will also be thinking about our Year Group assembly and practising some songs in preparation for it on Friday 16th June.

Please can the children remember to bring their PE bags back and their water bottles too.

Let's all have an amazing last half-term as brilliant Class 15!!

Friday 26th May 2017

The children had a lovely treat day today. It began with a visit to Year 6 fair where there were games to play, nails to be painted, treats to eat! Take a look ~ 

We then had a super time outside, playing together on the equipment and sharing the bikes and scooters and then a quieter afternoon in the classroom with ice lollies and popcorn.

Next half-term we will be finding out all about 'Minibeasts', including looking at the life-cycle of a butterfly and hunting for minibeasts in the Wild Area.

I really cannot believe where this year has gone! It will be our last half-term as Class 15 and my last one at Jesse Gray, so we are going to make sure it is the best!!

I hope you all have a great half-term holiday with lots of lovely times spent with family and friends.

Happy Half-Term Holiday!!!

Week beginning 22nd May 2017

Wow, what a busy week we have just had!!

It was our turn, with Class 14, to show what we have been doing in whole school assembly on Monday. We decided to sing some of the super songs the children have been learning with Mrs Walton each week in singing. They all sang beautifully and enjoyed having a large audience to perform to. They got lots of applause!!

Thank you to Mrs Walton for all her hard work in Music and singing.

Today we had a super dance session which included lots of counting and addition and subtraction work too. Rebecca, Jessica's Mummy, taught us all some great dance moves. The children worked individually and with a partner to create dances which included the addition and subtraction signs as part of the movements. 

The children listened very carefully and followed all the instructions. There are some super movers and shakers in Class 15 ~ 'Strictly Come Dancing' champions of the future! Thank you so much to Rebecca for coming to teach us all!

We have also been busy with lots of other work too ~ the hedgehogs are all finished and look gorgeous, the children have started writing super stories about animals ~ I think there could be some budding authors! In Maths, there has been lots of measuring and comparing the size of feet!

I think we have also got some 'town planners' of the future with their designs for new towns.

Next week we are finishing our stories using our phonic knowledge to spell our own words, using numbers in real life situations and completing the weaving we have started.

The children are only 3 marbles short of their '25 target', so look out for a 'treat day' letter coming very soon!

Week beginning 15th May 2017

We had a great time last week finding out all about hedgehogs and how we can make our gardens 'hedgehog friendly'. The children listened carefully to lots of information and watched clips on the IWB about hedgehogs and then worked together in small groups to make amazing posters about 'Hedgehog Safety'.

They were very enthusiastic and remembered their own fact to include on the poster and either drew a picture or chose a photo to illustrate it.

The finished posters were great!

 

The children also got creative with clay to make their own hedgehog and then used pine cone 'seeds' to make the spines.

We now have a 'Prickle of Happy Hedgehogs'!

This week we will be looking at birds and labelling the main parts of their body. In Maths, we are re-visiting measuring and the children will be drawing around their feet and then measuring them with non-standard and standard measures.

In Literacy, the children are going to be writing their own animal stories based on 'Percy the Park Keeper'.

They will be sounding out their own words, remembering capital letters, full-stops and finger spaces and thinking of exciting words to include. I'm looking forward to reading them!

Week beginning 8th May 2017

I feel sure the weeks are speeding up! We are already half-way through the first half of the Summer term!

The children's information books about badgers and foxes are all finished and they have produced some super work. The books are out on our British Wild Animal display, which also includes the lovely paintings of the animals which the children completed. Please pop in and have a look if you would like to.

This week we are focusing on hedgehogs and how we can make the local environment , including our gardens, 'hedghog friendly'. In Literacy, the children are going to be working in groups to record the information they have found out in the form of a poster.

They are also going to be making a hedgehog using clay and natural materials.

In Maths, we are re-visiting subtraction, both practical and recorded activities, remembering how to write subtraction numbers sentences including where the correct signs go.

The children have been busy being creative too! They have been carefully mixing their chosen paint colour with white to make different shades to paint the petals on a flower.

As you can see, great care and concentration were taken!

Week beginning 1st May 2017

We have had a lovely two weeks back finding out about British Wild Animals. The children are very interested and are remembering lots of facts and information. Last week we concentrated on foxes and badgers, using non-fiction books to find out information about foxes and watching clips on the IWB to see how badgers live in their setts and look after themselves.

In Literacy, the children have chosen one of these animals to write their own information book about. They are all working really hard, sounding out their own words or finding them in the non-fiction books, even using the glossary, and remembering capital letters and full-stops in their sentences. The children are very proud of their books and we are very proud of them and their work! 

We will be continuing with the activity this week too.

In Maths, the 'sneaky' Maths Menace has been back! He has been taking the numbers off our board again and hiding them around the classroom, he even hid our class memory stick!! It's a good job the children are great at recognising and sequencing numbers!

In Maths this week, we are going to be re-visiting the concept of subtraction, starting with practical activities and then how to write a subtraction number sentence, remembering the appropriate signs.

In Art, the children chose their favourite British Wild Animal to paint and we have got some super finished results. They thought carefully about which colours they needed to use and the shape and detail of their chosen animal. They are going to look brilliant on the display in our classroom!

This week the children are exploring what happens when they mix colours. 

We have been talking about looking after the environment, including re-cycling, and the children have been doing their own re-cycling in our 'Re-cycling Centre'.

We are also enjoying reading and listening to a selection of 'Percy the Park Keeper' stories too.

As always, thank you for your continuing support. If you have a concern or would like to talk about anything, please don't hesitate to come and find us.

Week beginning 24th April 2017

The Summer Term has arrived!!

I hope you all enjoyed the lovely sunny weather this weekend either being out and about or in your garden. 

Even though it was a shorter week last week we were just as busy!

Our new topic was introduced ~ British Wild Animals.

We did a 'brainstorm' activity where the children had to think of some British Wild Animals and where they might live. We had quite a variety ranging from giraffes to pandas to lions! I hope they are not in my garden! Once we had discussed that these animals were not native to our country, the children grasped the idea and thought of rabbits, foxes, hedgehogs and many more.

We then looked at and talked about the different types of habitat they live in and the children completed an activity to match the animals to their habitat and label with their name.

This week in Literacy, the children will be focusing on a particular British Wild Animal to make their own information book about. This links to our Guided Reading sessions where we are looking at the features of non-fiction books.

We will also be creating a display in the classroom which will include the children's paintings of their chosen British Wild Animal and animal masks they have already made.

In Maths we are looking at the numbers to 30+, recognising and sequencing them and finding the numbers that the 'Maths Menace' has taken and hidden! 

On Wednesday we will be having our Class 15 photo taken ~ everyone SMILE!!

Please look in the children's book bags this week for the information leaflet about this term's topic and relevant dates.

As always, thank you for your continuing support. If you have a concern or would like to talk about anything, please don't hesitate to come and find us.
