World Bee Day

Another busy and productive week enjoyed by everyone. Kelly, Sophie and the Year 2 team say, “Thank you” to all parents for your on-going support, Year 2 children have started their special work (KS1 SATs) and are remembering lots of what they have been taught – well done them.

Lynn and Sheila also say, “Thank you” to Year 1 parents who have attended the information sessions regarding the Year 1 Phonics screening check, children will be assessed from 06.06.22 (when we return after the half-term holiday). There are more meetings this week, so please try to attend if you haven’t already.

On Thursday, all children enjoyed the Basic First Aid assembly, this was an excellent session explaining how they can help someone who needs first aid – please ask them what they learnt.

Year 2 really enjoyed the Altmore Beach on the play deck on Friday afternoon, the visit from the Ice Cream man made us all very excited and happy.

Thank you to everyone who wore green on Friday in support of children’s mental health day, in their assemblies and in class, children listened to and participated well in the discussions – they demonstrated empathy and kindness towards each other.

This week we are looking forward to:

  • Walking to School – all children are being encouraged to travel sustainably to school every day, earning stickers as they go along, with a special reward at the end of the week! The #PowerUp challenge takes them through five, video game-inspired levels. In the process they’ll learn about the social, road safety, health, environmental benefits of walking, encouraging sustainable travel habits for life.
  • National Smile month, promoting healthy lives though good oral hygiene and teeth brushing, nutrition and healthy diets, oral health and general wellbeing.
  • On Thursday we will be learning about World Bee Day, highlighting the importance of Bees to the environment and the fact that they are becoming increasingly endangered. The theme this year is understanding the negative impact that the COVID pandemic has had on Bees. Year 2’s Bug Hotels outside their classrooms have already been attracting lots of pollinators which is really positive.
