Welcome to Bluebell Class Webpage!
We hope that you have all had a fantastic Easter filled with lots of chocolate and sunshine and are looking forward to an action packed Summer Term!
This term we will be entering through the door into The Secret Garden to find all the interesting and exciting things the garden has to offer. We will start by taking a very close look at the different insects and plants that we have living in our garden here at St Mark's as we go on our very own secret garden adventure inspired by the book 'Lollipop and Grandpa's Back Garden Safari'.
As we begin to develop our knowledge and understanding of what plants need to grow we will endeavor to grow some of our own plants and vegetables in the paddock area. As these (hopefully) start to sprout they will provide an exciting starting point for the children's independent writing and a meaningful context for our daily maths sessions.
We will continue our journey deeper into The Secret Garden to find all manner of creepy crawlies which will help us learn about the importance of these tiny creatures and how they can help us as gardeners!
Don't forget to bring in any 'Wow moments' that you have recorded over the Easter holidays. These snippets of information really help us to build up the bigger picture of your child's achievements. If you have run out of slips please don't hesitate to ask for more.
Your children will have PE sessions on Tuesday and Friday each week. Please ensure that they come equipped with; green shorts, a white polo shirt and trainers.
Your children are now blossoming into readers and it is therefore imperative that you provide them with the opportunity to practice their skills at least three times a week. Continue to build on their knowledge of phonics by allowing them the time to 'sound out' words they are unsure of and blend them together. Encourage them to make comments on the characters and story as they read to make sure they have understood what they have read. Don't forget that if your child has read at least three times over the course of a week they will be entered into the reading raffle for the chance to win a prize!
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to come in and speak to Mrs Cox, Mrs Franklin or one of the Bluebell team
