Growing In Faith and Learning
Welcome back to an exciting new school year at St. Leonard's. We've had a great first week and everyone is settling well into their new classes. We are all looking forward to an exciting term.
Robins have had a really good start in school. They have settled in amazingly well with only a couple of tears. Many friendships are blossoming. They had a treasure hunt to find their new buddies. The Once Upon a Time topic has commenced this week focusing on The Enormous Turnip. Reading books will be given out next week.
The Kingfishers class have had a wonderful first week and have had a fabulous theme day ‘Beside the Seaside’ to launch their new topic . Next week they will be starting to read their class text ‘Katie Morag’. In Maths they are focusing on number work.
The Owls are looking forward to their Roman theme day which will take place on 29th September. In Maths they have been working hard on place value. Diary’s have been a focus in English and they have been learning about life in Roman times.
Kestrels have ‘launched ‘ straight into their ’Out of this world’ supersonic space topic. The children have been busy creating their own ‘to infinity and beyond’ reading area in the classroom. They have also filled a time capsule which they will be burying until the end of the year.
The Falcons have welcomed their new member of the class ‘Mrs Pebbles’ their class pet as part of their ‘100 things’ that they want to experience before they leave St Leonard’s. They have begun their World War 2 theme and have started to read their class text ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’.
