Wow! What an incredible term! I have had such a wonderful time teaching your fantastic children. It has been a real privilege to work with them all and I will miss them so much. I would also like to say a very BIG thank you for all of the gifts you have given; our baby boy is very blessed to have so many beautiful things and both my husband and I have been blown away by your kindness and generosity. I will definitely be bringing him in to meet you all when he arrives.
Thank you so much once again, I will miss you all and especially the children! Have a fabulous Christmas and a very happy new year.
Love and Best Wishes,
Miss Kidd xx
Yesterday, we celebrated our Christmas party at the cinema watching Paddington 2. We had a great time and loved the film. Special thanks to Mrs Walker and Mr & Mrs Foley for accompanying us to the cinema, we really enjoyed your company!
We had the most amazing day on Friday celebrating all things Harry Potter! This included making magical potions, designing our very own Hogwarts castles and entering the mysterious photo booth! We also played games which involved eating ‘worms’, ‘frog eyes’, ‘Bertie Botts Beans’ and ‘Cockroach clusters.’ The winners of this exciting game got to visit Gringotts bank and select a winning prize of either edible coins or the bonus of a £50 chocolate bar. In the afternoon, we enjoyed lots of sweet treats and watched Harry Potter the Philosophers Stone. It really was a wonderful day. Thank you for providing the costumes for the children and also for bringing in the snacks for the afternoon. Hogwarts definitely came to St Wilfrid’s for the day!
Thank you so much for coming to our Viking’s Presentation evening. We had a great time showing off all of the work we have completed in class and loved performing the Viking songs in front of you all! I was also blown away by the amount of effort that was put in to the Vikings home projects – they were fantastic!
We did take some pictures of the evening, however, our Ipad is playing up and we are struggling to download these. Mrs Foley has sent me some pictures and I also took some the day after the event of the children’s work. If you do have any other pictures which you would like me to share that you took on the evening, please send them to me on my email address and I will upload them to this post. For now though, please enjoy the pictures below.
We really enjoyed making Dragon eyes in art. We focused on the dimensions of the dragon eyes and the colours used for the scales. We used water colours which were really effective and looked great!
A few weeks ago, we made Viking pendants using clay. We designed our Viking pendants on paper first and then used these designs to create the pendants with clay. Once the pendants were dry, we went outside and spray painted them silver and gold. I hope you enjoyed seeing these on display at our Viking celebration event.
I’m sorry I haven’t posted much recently, I will be doing a large update with lots of pictures over the next week – we have had such a busy time!
I am really excited about tomorrow – Harry Potter Day and have lots of fun things planned. I have already bought some sweet teats but if you do happen to have any crisps/chocolate/snacks or sweets that you could bring in to school for our afternoon film, I would greatly appreciate it. I know it is very short notice so please don’t worry if not.
Here’s to an exciting day filled with magic!
As part of our preparation in Advent we will be holding simple Advent services in our classroom at the end of the day. We would love to have you join us at 3pm.
Mrs Clack has a sign up sheet in the office for our class. Our services will be held on :
There will be spaces for 6 parents at each slot.
Also we will be sending a prayer format home for you to write a simple prayer with your child. Please don’t panic as these should be really simple child led little prayers for us to share in our services. If you could write it down on the sheet provided and send it in by Monday 4th December.
The children have worked incredibly hard to achieve their 150 marbles target as a class. I have organised a class treat for the day where the children will be celebrating all things Harry Potter! This will take place on Friday 15th December. In maths, we will be exploring making different potions. The children will be given the opportunity to create their very own game like Quidditch in Literacy and in the afternoon, we will be enjoying some Harry Potter sweet treats and watching the film. I am inviting the children to dress up in Harry Potter style clothing, this is optional – I of course will be in full dress up too!
I am so proud of all of the children in the class and the amount of effort they have put in to their work this term has been outstanding. I will really miss them when I leave them at the end of the term, they have been such a joy to teach.
There is no charge for dressing up on this day as it is a class treat and only our class will be doing it. I look forward to seeing you in your costumes!
On Monday 20th November, the children will be learning safety in swimming and the instructors have asked for the children to bring shorts and a t shirt to wear in the pool. Please can you provide this.
