Summer Term 2019

Our summer term has begun. We’ve said goodbye for now to Mrs Baker and hello to our new teacher Mrs Bartlett.

Mrs Bartlett says:

I’ve had a lovely start at Stone with Woodford School, thanks to all the children of Chestnut class. I’ve been made to feel very welcome by so many parents too. If you’ve not yet had a chance to come and say hi, please feel free to pop in and introduce yourself.

A little bit about me: I’ve been teaching for just over 10 years. I started my career in a school in South Gloucestershire, before moving to an International school in Thailand. I love learning new languages. Chestnut class and I have been doing the register in different languages and the children have been challenging me to respond with ‘thank you’. This term I’ve learnt my first few words of Polish and Swahili thanks to the children! I’m looking forward to seeing what else my time with Chestnut class will bring.

 

There has been lots of busy things going on in our class so far this term. In English we are learning the story of ‘The Little Shoemaker’ which is loosely based on the traditional tale ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker.’ Thank you for practising the story at home together, it has made a real difference. We are beginning to adapt the story now to write our own version. Maybe it’ll be the little toymaker or the little pet shop owner. We look forward to reading the children’s new stories soon.

In R.E our unit of work is all about caring for others and the world around us. You can see here some of the paintings we did to show what we wish the world was like. Ask the children about the story of The Good Samaritan and how we can follow the golden rule.

On Mondays we are now going swimming in the afternoons. Please make sure your child remembers their swimming kit each week.

Here is all of us with our crazy hair on Friday 17th May. Thank you for all your creative work. The children really enjoyed showing off their crazy hair and we raised a lot of money for FOSS and our whole school trip to Tyntesfield later this year.
