Message from Mrs Farrant

Dear Fireflies,

I hope that you have had a lovely week. I enjoyed speaking to some of you on the telephone!

The sun has been shining this week so Percy and I decided to do some gardening. We made sure that we watered the plants so they didn’t get thirsty. We also planted my potato plants into a bigger pot so they have more space to grow.

Have a lovely half term.

Message to Fireflies

Hello Fireflies,

This week we have spoken to many of you and it is so lovely to hear what you have been up to. Your grown-ups have been telling us how well you are playing and helping at home- keep it up and we are very proud of you! If we have not managed to speak yet, we will try again next week.

We hope you enjoyed the story of the week, The Giant Turnip. Miss Honeywell and the children worked as a team to pull out the turnip. It is always a good idea to help each other, isn’t it?

You have also been practising your sounds. Shall we play ‘I Spy’?

Have a look at the pictures below:

I spy with my little eye something that starts with the ‘d-d-d’ sound.

What is it?

Did you say dog? Well done!

This week, Miss Kinsella and her children had lots of fun playing the ‘Bean Game’.

String bean
Broad bean

Mrs Lamb has planted sunflower seeds in her garden with her children. They have been looking after them by giving them water everyday. Look how much they have grown!

Mrs Adams has also been in her garden. She is planting pepper plants that she grew from a tiny seed.

Have a lovely half term and keep singing, dancing, smiling, drawing, painting, building, role playing, baking, scooting, running… and most importantly stay safe and continue being you! We miss you all sooooooooooooooooooo much!

Love Mrs Adams, Miss Davis, Miss Kinsella, Mrs Lamb and Mrs Wyld.
