Hello all!

Well done for getting through a warm and wonderful first week back! It has been great to see everyone again along with some new additions to our classes. We hope everyone settled in well and feels pleased to be back.

This week, we have been using our time to get to know the children and begin to introduce the new topic (Kenya) for this half term, along with Destination Reader which is a new concept for children starting KS2.

It was a pleasure to meet so many of you at the Meet the Teacher talks on Friday – we hope you found this useful. To follow up from this, we have attached the presentation to this blog for you to read. We would appreciate if you can all connect with us on Class Dojo as this is a good way for us to communicate throughout the year. If yo have any more questions from the session, feel free to contact us this way.

Have a great weekend, get some rest and we will see you all Monday!

Music learning also happens when listening to any kind of music or watching a performance. I’ve selected two, but there is plenty more material on Youtube!

 

A fun and easy craft to make at home! Great to develop musical coordination. Can you sing and shake at the same time?
