Welcome back to another wonderful year in Willow Class from September 2020!
Our topic for the first half term is ‘School Days’. The children in Reception will be focusing on getting to know their new school and the rules and opportunities at Clutton C of E Primary School. They will also be learning about how the school has changed in recent years and over a longer period of time. The children in KS1 will be looking at the local area and what features are in Clutton. It would be lovely for the children to interview parents/grandparents/staff who went to Clutton School when they were little. It would be nice for the children to practice their questioning skills and find out what school was like for their parents and grandparents. They are welcome to come in and share their findings. If anyone would like to volunteer to come in and talk to the children about their experiences when they were in school, please let me know at your earliest convenience. The children will also be looking at what schools were like in the Victorian times and how they have changed.
In science, we will be learning about the importance of good hygiene, healthy eating and exercise. We will also be participating in a lot of mindfulness activities that promote positive mental health and that make us feel happy.
The children will have regular indoor P.E sessions so they will need to have their P.E kit in school throughout the week. They will also be taking part in outdoor learning so they will need suitable clothing, preferably waterproof and lots of layers to keep them warm, as well as either wellington boots or old trainers/walking boots.
If ever you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see me. I am very happy to help in any way that I can.
Thank you for your support.
