Elms Visit

24th March 2016

Dear Parents,

The year is progressing quickly, and the end of the first term is fast approaching. So far the year has gone really well.  The children are developing their work habits beautifully and becoming quite independent.

To round off the work we have been doing about the early settlers, I have organised a trip to The Elms, on Thursday, April 14th.  The trip will take about an hour, so I will be adding something else on, possibly a trip to the park to celebrate the end of term, or a visit to the historic village. There is a cost of $2 for this trip. We will be leaving school at 9am and will probably be back at school by lunchtime, certainly by 1pm.   If you are able to help with transport, or would like to come with us, please return the form attached.

We are experimenting with our afternoon programme at the moment, trialling ‘diy time’, a time where the children can explore any area that they want to.  They need to have a goal related to either a skill, a question or completing a project that they will work towards reaching. We will be doing this on Mondays and Wednesdays, so if they have anything in particular they need from home those will be the days to bring it.  If you have any questions or ideas about what your child has chosen, or wishes to do, feel free to contact me.

I am trying to remember to put notices on the website as they are written, so if you think you may be missing something check there.  I have just posted the childrens paragraphs about the early settlers on the site so if you get a chance check them out. They did really well sharing their information with the rest of the class.

Parent teacher conferences are going well, if you don’t have a time slot and would like one, let me know and I will fit you in.

Thanks for your support this year,
kind regards,

Lynne Sperring.
