Here are some of the things we have been busy doing this week:
• Enjoying the story Dear Zoo and many activities relating to the story, writing our own letters to the zoo, learning the names of different wild animals, drawing animals, making flap pictures, talking about our pets. If anyone has a pet they would like to bring to school please see Mrs Macdonald.
• Learning how to play board games using a dice. Please play at home, if you have any, snakes and ladders is a good one for helping to develop number recognition, counting on and turn taking skills.
• Helping the new children, Jaxson and Betsy to settle in.
• Practising sidestepping, skipping and clapping in time in preparation for May Day dancing.

You are warmly invited to join us for our May Day celebrations on May 1st, which will commence at 9.30am on the playground (weather permitting – otherwise we will have to be in the school hall). Prior to the celebrations, FOHNS will be selling tea, coffee & croissants from 9.00am to all spectators attending the May Day celebrations.
Dress Code: Girls –pretty dresses, Boys – smart shirts and school trousers or shorts, Year 6 – jeans and a white shirt or t-shirt, with sensible shoes for dancing (no crocs, flip flops, boots or loose slip-on shoes). Children should come to school in their May Day outfits but can change into school uniform afterwards if you wish. Please make sure children bring a warm coat!
Wednesday 2 May: Class Photographs: The School Photography Company will be in school next Wednesday to take the more relaxed-style ‘expressions’ photographs for the class groups. Extra-smart uniform please!
Top Tip-Make sure your child has a blue jumper or cardigan as they usually use a white background and white polo shirts just blend in.
