Welcome to the Squirrel class page!
If you have any questions please feel free to write in your child's reading diary or ask the teacher at the end of the school day.
A few reminders:
Forest School - We take part in Forest School activities outside every Thursday afternoon. Please can all children have a change of clothes for this (that you don't mind getting muddy) and also a pair of wellington boots as it can get very muddy down in the woodland.
P.E. - Our P.E. day is a Wednesday each week. Please ensure your child has their P.E. kit in school all week and that all items of clothing including shoes are labelled with a name. The children will also need clothing suitable for outdoor P.E. e.g. tracksuit bottoms. Thank you.
We had a wonderful time visiting Portchester Castle this week. It was great for the children to see all of the things we have been learning about in a real castle and they excitedly pointed out the castle's battlements, portcullis and keep! We were able look around both the outer and inner bailey, where we were able to look at important features of a castle. We also bravely climbed up the spiral staircase to the top of the keep where we got a great view!
DT - Making Castles.
This week we have worked really hard in groups to create our own castles out of recycled boxes. We painted our boxes grey to look like stone and carefully cut out the battlements and drawbridge. We had a lot of fun making them!
