Welcome to Nightingales!
Pleased to meet you all!
Well done for coming back from your summer holidays full of enthusiasm and eager to learn!
‘Busy Bodies’ is our fabulous topic this term and is proving to be fascinating and sometimes messy! Our role play doctors surgery is diversifying as a vets, with children bringing in their cuddly friends. We have already had a visit from Dr Frankenstein and have begun investigating what is inside a body. We are off to the Eureka Science museum in Halifax in November to find out about more about the body.
P.E. is currently on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons and children have been ready and organised with their indoor and outdoor kits. Swimming is on hold at the moment, as work at Aireborough leisure centre has not yet been finished. We are currently assessing the situation.
Homework is being given out on Thursdays this year and needs to be brought in on Monday mornings. Don’t forget that the title of bookworm of the week (and the perks which go with it) will be awarded to the reader with the best and most consistent comments in their reading diary.
Please keep practising your spellings, telling the time and time tables, as it is so important. Remember: if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!
I hope you all enjoy your first term as a Nightingale!
