Hello boys and girls, here is my last assembly for when most of the school are learning from home. It is about saying thank you to everyone who has helped you over the last 2 months.
Hello boys and girls, here is my assembly for this week. It is all about your dreams of coming back to School.
I hope you all had a lovely half term break. This weeks story for family story time is 'Look Up' by Nathan Bryon. It is about a little girl with big dreams! I hope you enjoy it!
The children and staff in coral bubble have had an extremely busy and fun half term. They have been learning through play and sensory exploration and have enjoyed the stories of 'The Gingerbread Man', 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes'. They even ate their own chocolate spread pancakes - yum yum!
Take a look at some of their wonderful work.
Hi boys and girls, here are three lovely posters sent in after last week's assembly that I wanted to share with you all.
Here is my assembly for this week. I thought I could give you a little fun project to do over half term ... you could make your very own time capsule. Have a look at my assembly to give you some ideas. I do hope you are all doing OK. Take care and see you soon!
Welcome to this weeks Mrs Maguire's Family Story Time. This week we are reading 'The Koala Who Could' by Rachel Bright. This is the same author who wrote 'The Lion Inside' which we read in Week 1 of the story time sessions. This is a story all about having a 'growth mindset' and a 'can do' attitude to give things a try even when you find them tricky. I hope you enjoy!
Miss Wright and Mrs Maguire have put together the following slides to demonstrate how to support your child in their early writing skills in Reception and Year 1. Any questions please email us :)
This week is Children's Mental Health week and in honour of this I have chosen two stories about staying mentally well. The first 'The Colour of Happy' is aimed at EYFS and KS1 and the second 'Ruby's Worry' is more appropriate for KS1 and KS2. I have also suggested some follow up activities if you would like to explore these texts more as a family. I hope you enjoy!
If we rewind to last February, you may remember your child joining in with a whole school project during Art week. We asked for donations of recycling & any plastic materials you no longer needed. Thank you very much for your donations as they were all put to good use and the children have created something pretty magical!
Our topic was 'Plastic Pollution.' Over the week, the children learnt about the sad truths of plastic pollution and why it is so important to put a stop to it. There was a particular focus on our oceans & seas and the adverse affects of plastic pollution towards the sea creatures & coral reefs.
As a school, each year group collaborated to create one huge art installation. (Where we had hoped to showcase at Parents Evening in March, however due to obvious reasons this was put on hold.) I am still pleased to say, we are able to share this wonderful installation with you through the power of photos & video. Also the installation will stay up until the children have had the chance to experience it in real life.
The entire installation is made up of recycled materials & things that would otherwise end up in the bin. Please enjoy looking through the photos & video. See which sea creatures you can notice & which materials have been used. I hope you agree that the children have done a marvellous job and should be very proud of the outcome. Well done WLS, both to the children & the staff!
Finally, I'd like to say a huge thank you to Amanda Silk & Anne-Marie Abbate. Both artists supported and inspired many of the creations within the installation. The children thoroughly enjoyed having the artists in to work with them.
Enjoy viewing our 'Plastic Pollution' installation. Video available to watch on Wotton Lower School Facebook page,
