Class Activity

All Classes Activity Flow

Class 1 parent story time

After half term, I would like to introduce an opportunity for a different parent/grandparent/guardian etc to come into school on a Thursday afternoon at 15:00, to read their favourite story to the children.

We love story time in Class 1 and it is so important to foster a love of reading. I think the children will really enjoy having someone new in to read to them every Thursday.

I have stuck a sign up sheet in the entrance porch to class 1, so please feel free to put your name down for a session. Any relative is welcome, should a parent not be able to attend. All I ask is that you bring your favourite book with you.

I hope to see lots of people signing up!

Thank you,

Miss Latham

History topic- Bombs Away!

Children are really enjoying being immersed in our new topic based around World War 2, Bombs Away!  So far, they have learnt about life as a child and evacuee during the war, rationing and life on the Home Front.
This topic has really engaged lots of the class, many of whom have completed additional research, at home, using the local libraries and museums at Sleap airfield and RAF Cosford. We are also looking forward to visiting Coventry next month, when we will learn about Coventry and The Blitz.

To support further topic learning, here is a list of websites which will help to deepen both knowledge and understanding of life during World War 2.

Plastic bags for PE shoes

Hello,

As the children are currently having PE lessons outdoors, please could you send in a plastic bag, which your child will then be able to keep their muddy shoes in after a PE session. This will help keep their PE clothes clean.

Thank you,

Miss Latham

History topic – Titanic

The children are very enthusiastic with their learning about Titanic.  Here are some webpages that may support your child’s learning at home.

Class 1 request for Autumn objects

Hello,

In class 1, we will be looking at the signs of Autumn. If anybody has collected lots of conkers, different coloured leaves or big leaf maple helicopters etc, or if you would like to collect these items for us over the weekend,  then donations of these would be greatly appreciated next week. Please drop them into Class 1.

Thank you,

Miss Latham

Welcome!

Hello,

Welcome to the start of a new school year. Your children have settled in well and I hope they have enjoyed their first few days in school. For those of you who are new to the school, just a few reminders about expectations:

  • Please only send water in your child’s water bottle, unless your child has a medical reason for drinking juice. If this is the case, just let me know.
  • We offer a fruit snack everyday in school, however if you would like to send your child in with their own snack, please stick to healthy options such as fruit or vegetables only.
  • If you haven’t already, please send in your child’s PE kit and wellies. Wellies can be put straight on the wellie rack outside of class 1.

Due to vandalism over the Summer holiday, the Forest School area is currently out of bounds. Until the area has been cleared, Forest School won’t be going ahead and I will run a PE session every other Wednesday instead. I will let parents know when Forest School clothes are needed.

Also, after drop of tomorrow morning, the Friends of Crudgington Group are holding a coffee morning in the school staff room. Feel free to pop along. You will receive a warm welcome and I know the Friends group would love to welcome some new members.

If you need to ask anything,please feel free to grab me for a chat in the mornings or after school.

Thank you,

Miss Latham
