Today we wore odd socks to help bring awareness for World Down Syndrome Day. We have spent some time this afternoon discussing the relevance of this. 

Literacy this week has focused around a picture titled ‘The kite eating tree’. The children made verbal predictions about what they thought had happened, why the characters were doing what they were doing, what they could be saying. We then wrote out some ideas in speech bubbles. We answered questions based on who, what, where, when, why and how. Today we started to write our own stories based on the picture. 

In maths we have focused on counting forwards and backwards to 50. We had some bananas but some numbers were missing, so we had to use a number line to find out what the missing number was. Some children found this a little tricky. It would be great if you get a chance to practise counting forwards and backwards in 10’s. 

With Mr Palmer for PE, the children played tag rugby. This was the second time they’ve had a go at this and have really enjoyed it. 

We have some very determined children in Demeter who want to get their names on lottery tickets for reading 3 or more times during the week. It is lovely to hear in the mornings the excitement that they have read and they know how many more times they need to for a ticket. Keep up the reading!!! 

We are very excited for the Art Exhibition next Monday (25th March) from 3.25pm to 5pm. The children worked extremely hard on their art work based on our food theme. Mrs Donald has also worked hard to organise this for us. We hope you will have a special spot in mind to hang the works of art! The children have all received personalised invitations today. 

On Saturday afternoon we are holding a Zumbathon from 2pm-4pm to raise funds for a school defibrillator. Mrs Hay will be there. Mrs Meeks will be leading the Zumba, so come on down and strut your stuff! It is a family event so the more the merrier. See posters around the school for more details. 

Show and tell we are linking to food from around the world. Any countries flags that links to their favourite fruit or vegetables, do they know where food comes from? How it gets here? Do they help to grow their own food at home or an allotment?
