We have begun the term by becoming “Eggsplorers” as learn about new life and growth. We looked at duck and hen eggs before talking about what we already know about eggs. Miss Holland found some mysterious looking eggs and we shared our ideas about what we thought might hatch; these included fairies, mermaids, sea monsters, dragons, dinosaurs, crocodiles, ninja turtles and princesses. We will learn about new life and how it begins from an egg through mini-beasts, sea life, birds and maybe even dragons,dinosaurs and maybe even Pokemon!
We will also begin our Reception transition by looking at fun phonics play and glittery mark making and letter formation. (Don’t tell Mr. Kidd about the glitter though!)
Bishop Jonathan came to visit Key Stage 2 on Friday 3rd March. He talked to the children about his robes and his role of Bishop.
Our Year 6 here in White Mere are a mature group and I’d like to explore initial thoughts as to whether there is enough interest to take this group of children to London after their SATs in June.
The White Mere Community Primary School Christmas Carol Service at St Andrew’s Church is tonight, Wednesday 16th December 2016 at 6pm.
Our Christmas activities carried on apace yesterday with a trip to see this year’s panto, Beauty and the Beast.
At the start of our school term back in September 2015, we set all of our children a challenge. The challenge was for each year group to try to achieve the highest percentage of attendance for that school year (September 2015 – July 2016) and at the end of the school year they would be rewarded with a trip of their choice.
