Happy New Year!
We hope you have all had a lovely break over the Christmas holidays and are feeling refreshed ready for some exciting things happening in school this half term.
What's happening in Wye Class!
In P.E. this half term we will be learning dance, in addition to this on Friday afternoons we will be walking down to the Dojo at the Riverside Fitness Centre to take part in some Martial Arts lessons. Children will be walking down in their P.E. kits so can you please make sure they have a coat with them. If your child already trains at the dojo they are allowed to wear their kit if they want to.
We have started learning about World War Two as our topic, the children seem to be really enjoying learning about the history of it all. The children have been very enthusiastic about learning more and have been bringing in war medals, action toys that represent the soldiers and much more! We have loved looking at all of the memorabilia that the children have and thank you for your continuing encouragement and support. To enhance the children's learning even more we are asking that if anyone that you know of has memories or experiences of World War Two and would like to come in and speak to the class to please come in and speak to us or phone school to arrange a visit. Thank you.
In science lessons we will be learning about the circulatory system, this week we started our topic by labelling and finding out information about the different parts of the heart. Finally on Thursday afternoons we will be continuing to practice the flute, the children will be bringing home their instruments to practice the skills they have learnt during the lessons.
Our trip to Veolia Materials Recovery Facility in Mansfield.
Wye Class enjoyed their trip to the Materials Recovery Facility in Mansfield before Christmas. During our visit the children went on a site tour and got to see all the different processes that our waste has to go through in order to be recycled. We also had a go at sorting out various items trying to get them all in the correct waste containers, and found out how long it takes items to decompose in a landfill site.
In English lessons children composed a formal letter thanking the staff at Veolia for the experience and made posters showing all the information we had learnt. We then sent our letters and posters to Veolia MRF. Over the Christmas holidays we have had an email from the staff at Veolia thanking us for our kind words and posters
