Hi Class 4,
Here is your summer challenge!
Over the summer holiday, Miss Wood and myself (Mr Clow) are challenging you to record an activity, person or place for each letter of the alphabet. For each one you record, you should write a short note to explain what you did, who you did something with, or where you went.
Activity - B - Baking. I baked chocolate brownies with my dad. They were delicious!
Activity - C - Camping. I camped out in my garden for two nights. I heard an owl.
Activity - P - Puppy. We got a new puppy. His name is Rex. I trained him to sit.
Person - N - Nanny. I was really excited when we visited Nanny in Colchester. She gave me loads of sweets.
Place - Z - Zoo. I went to Colchester Zoo. My favourite animal was the elephant.
Place - W - Woods. We went to Broaks Wood and built a rope swing. It was so cool!
You only need one thing for each letter of the alphabet, so some will be easy but some will be more challenging.
There is a recording sheet to print off and use or you can make your own way of recording the experiences.
In addition to the alphabet challenge, can you make a summer memory box to keep some items in that are linked to your summer experiences? This could be a shoe box or any box that size. The box could contain photographs, things you have made or souvenirs from places you have been to. Decorate the box (examples on the alphabet challenge recording sheet) and bring it into school in September when we meet so that we can have a show and tell session to learn about you and your summer experiences. If you have any questions, please email the school.
Good luck and have a great summer.
From Miss Wood and Mr Clow.
A big welcome to your new class page!
Mr Clow and I are delighted to be teaching all of you in Class 4 this coming year. We hope you are all well and looking forward to the 'meet the teacher' days over the next couple of weeks. It will be very exciting to see you back in school after spending a considerable amount of time away. We want to spend time helping you all re-adjust to being back in the classroom, which is aided by the class being split into two groups. During the two days, you will be completing a range of fun activities, getting to know more about your classmates and listen to each other's pandemic experiences!
Can you challenge yourself to be the child who has the highest amount of coins on TT Rock Stars in Class 4? You will be allocated time in school to practise and can still improve your score at home!
Throughout the year, your half termly overviews of the curriculum, class work and any messages will be posted on here for your viewing pleasure.
Take great care and see you soon!
Miss Wood and Mr Clow
