As another term drew to a close the children in Little Grange were joined by Reception to enjoy an Easter egg hunt. The excitement was high as the children squealed with joy ” I can see one” “Look I’ve found one”
Look what we all found !
What a great way to end a busy term . It has been a super term the children have worked really hard with their writing, numeracy and Holme Grange Way. It is not long before many of our children will be moving up to Reception. We are working on independence in dressing and undressing, using knives and forks and being responsible for collecting all their belongings for home time.
Please make a note of the dates of our Parent’s Evening, outing to the farm, transition days to Reception and Sports Day.
May I make a plea that children arrive by 8-30am we have a very busy timetable and to complete all our planned activities we need to commence registration at 8-35am .
My team and I wish you all a very Happy Easter and look forward to seeing you all in April.
This week the children have been doing some Easter themed maths. They have been set the challenge to see if they can choose more than one numicon piece to make the number on their Easter egg. Some children firstly picked the one numicon piece that represented the number on the egg and then used it to help them work out the other numicon pieces they could fit on top of the original numicon piece. Other children also experimented with using 3 piece of numicon to make their number.
Yet another week has flown by in Little Grange with lots of learning, exploration and fun being had.Next week is set to be equally busy with two assemblies to attend one on Thursday and one on Friday. Please ensure that the children are in nursery by 8-30 am please.
Our sound of the week will be Z next week put those thinking caps on!
A reminder that next Friday we finish at 4 pm for the Easter break and there will be no after school care provided.
There will be no home school packs sent out next week as we need to prepare them for next term.
A true sign that Easter is on its way as sales of chocolate and Shredded Wheat rise and the mass production of chocolate egg nests get under way! Next week the children will learn the true meaning of Easter as told by year 3.
Enjoy the sunshine and have a good weekend.
This week the children have been making wax resist Easter eggs. First they practised their cutting skills by cutting out an egg shape which some children found a little tricky but all displayed great perseverance!
The children added their own crayon design, challenged to make a repeating pattern. They selected water coloured paint and were fascinated to see the paint not sticking to the waxy crayon.
What other Easter shapes could you cut out?
