Lots of trips next week.

The fabulous weather this week has meant that the garden and all the new plants are looking great. The children have enjoyed being able to play outside without their coats and the sandpit has been a much more tempting place to be again. However, it doesn’t seem as though this will be the case next week and so can you please make sure everyone has a coat with them, as it appears they will be needing them.

Our Parent/Teacher Consultations on Tuesday were very well attended and we would like to thank you all for coming. It was great to talk with you about your child(ren) and their progress, and to set targets for the last few months of the academic year. We hope that you found them informative.

There haven’t been any class trips for a few weeks but next week that is going to change.  Lots of new Units are starting and so this seems to be the reason for even more exciting learning than usual.

On Tuesday Class 5 will be going to visit the Natural History museum to see the dinosaur and fossil exhibition for the Entry Point to their new Unit.

Then, on Wednesday some Cap Science activity leaders will be coming into school. They will be running hands-on activities in French with the children in Class 4 on the topic of water. This will be the Entry Point for their exciting IPC Science Unit entitled ‘On Tap’.

They will also be spending time with the Class 3 children and will be helping them investigate the life of a flower. This will be the entry point for their upcoming IPC Unit entitled ‘I Am Alive’. Among the activities they will participate in, they will be looking at, and studying the different parts of a flower and learning about insects and pollination.

On top of this Class 1 are heading off to Planckendael Zoo on Thursday. So as you can see learning is certainly not confined to the classroom next week.

Dates for your diaries:

Thursday 5th & Friday 6th May – No School (Ascension holiday)

Thursday 19th May – Book Fair

We would like to remind you that you must park legally when you come to drop off or collect your children from school. The police have asked us to inform you that they will be checking regularly, and that any illegally parked cars will be receiving parking tickets.

That’s all for this week, but next week we will be able to feedback on all those class trips and visitors.

Have a lovely weekend.
