The children have had a fantastic day celebrating the king's coronation and all looked fantastic in their red, white and blue outfits! Although the rain dampened our plans for an outdoor picnic on the field, the children still had an enjoyable indoor picnic lunch in the hall. This week, the children looked at our old school record book and discovered that, many years ago, children from our school sent a telegram to Queen Elizabeth to congratulate her on the birth of Prince Charles. The record book states that the children also received a telegram in return from the Queen who thanked them for their message. To continue with this tradition, we wrote our own letters to King Charles to congratulate him on his coronation. The children tried SO hard and wrote some beautiful letters. We think the King will be very impressed with their handwriting and are keeping our fingers crossed for a letter back from Buckingham Palace!
In DT, we discussed which type of mechanism would be best for our moving page telling the story of The Gingerbread Man. The children decided that a slider would produce the best movement so we practised the skills needed to produce a smooth sliding mechanism. The children worked on their hole punching, cutting and colouring skills to produce a sliding mecahanism.
Just a reminder to please return reading folders on a Thursday. We will always endeavour to change any books that are returned late but this will not always be possible. Thank you.
