Community Primary School
Welcome to the Cubs News!
This term we are learning all about Growing and Easter
We will also continue to enjoy phonics, reading, maths activities and lots of writing!
We have been very busy this term getting ready for Easter and making special cards. We made our Easter baskets from art materials and we had to follow instructions on how to put it all together.We have made Rice Krispie Easter cakes using our ICT knowledge to have a turn in using the microwave with adult support.. We looked and talked about how chocolate changes when it has been melted.
We have also been gardening outside. We have tidied our planters, ready for the spring and summer weather, so that we can grow some of our seeds and plants ito enjoy in the coming months.
We have planted a sunflower seed for our own gardens at home. Please take photos and bring them into school to let us know how they are doing!
We have also had the opportunity to watch small chicks hatch from eggs.
The Happy Chick Company came into school to deliver some eggs in the special incubator. We had a webcam set up so that we could watch them hatch on the IWB in our classroom . This caused great excitment as we watched the eggs begin to crack! As the chicks grew we had the opportunity to hold them by ourselves, if we were brave enough, because they were very wriggly.

World Book Day is a celebration! It's a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and it's a celebration of reading!! On Thursday March 3rd we had the librarian from The Deepings Library come into school with a selection of books that she read to each class. In the afternoon the Leopards came down to our classroom to share, read and enjoy books with us.
The WoW Sheet is a way for you to record those moments when your child says or does something that makes you think "wow"!
We are always interested in any special moments that the children experience in their home environment.
Please click on the links above to print off our WoW Moment tickets and let us know what your child has been up to out of school
We would love to share the childrens news in our circle time and we will place them in their Learning Journey
Please can we ask that you label ALL clothing, bags and bottles as lots are getting muddled!
Book Bags will be sent home on a Friday and need to be returned on the following Wednesday.
Here are some links to some games we like to play at school:
This is a website full of phonics games for all phases.
Lots of practical and fun games to play.
Fun learning through play helps children achieve Foundation stage goals. Teach 3-5 year olds, initial sounds, colours, compare and order, counting, matching and mouse skills at home.
Phonics games will help your child to practise sounding out words, which will help them to read. Initially, children will learn basic letter sounds, such as "c-a-t" for "cat". Later they will move on to sounds such as "th", "sh" and "ch", then "oo", "oa" and so on. Once they recognise a few basic letter sounds, they will be able to work out what a written word says for themselves, a skill which they will be very proud to show off!
Counting. matching and ordering maths games
