Welcome to Bluebell Class Webpage!

 

 

'How do we show kindness to people and places?'

This term our project is to think about how we can show kindness to people and places.  As part of this project we will be reading some traditional tales and discussing if the characters always made the right choices and think about other choices that they could have made instead.  After half term we will be learning about minibeasts, their importance and how to look after them.  We will also be doing a lot of gardening this term!

 

So far we have had the most amazing half term - we started off by going for a walk in the woods and we found some very mysterious objects....

 

We realised that they were clues for our new project and that we would be learning about traditional tales.  We also did a nature walk and collected lots of things that we found in the woods.

 

We have been doing lots of gardening, planting the beans that we started to grow in the classroom.  We have also planted some carrots.  

 

Phonics

 

I have been unbelivably impressed with how well Bluebells have taken to learning how to read and write.  We have now moved onto Phase 4 phonics, where the children will be learning how to read, and in particular, write longer words that have more phonemes in them e.g. CVCC and CCVC words such as 'stop' and 'blank'.

 

 

 

Please remember that much of our learning will take place outside and the external door will need to remain open in our indoor classroom to ensure ventilation.  As the weather improves, please can you put suncream on your child and ensure that they have a hat to wear. As this is England, there may also be days when a coat would be useful!

 

 

 

 

I understand that under the current restrictions it is difficult for parents to share information and ask questions as they drop off and pick up their children.  Please feel that you can contact me personally on the following email address; bluebell@st-marks.w-sussex.sch.uk .  

 

Thank you for sending in your children so ready and eager for school!  It's going to be a good year!
