MESSAGE FROM MRS COLLINS

This term has been great to get back to normality and begin to do all the things that schools should do; welcoming parents and visitors into school, children going on visits and residentials, our squads competing in sporting events and organising a whole school sports day.  

Sandfield School Vision and Aims

However, this also means that our Year 2 and Year 6 children are in the process of their end of Key Stage assessments.  All staff working in those year groups are so proud of the children and how hard they are working.  They have shown, self-belief and that “yes I can” approach, resisilience and team work – learning together with their peers.  These are such important skills for the future.

To help ease our Year 6 into their SATS week, Mr Godber has set up a special breakfast club.  We look forward to seeing all of Year 6, Monday morning,  in the hall at 8:00am for a delicious crossiant or two!

All best wishes

Mrs Collins ad the Sandfield staff

Outbreak of Scarlet Fever and Chicken Pox

We have been notified by Public Health that there is currently an outbreak of these two diseases in Nurseries and Primary Schools in Surrey.  Please look out for any symptoms below and contact your family doctor if you need any advice.

Symptoms

Scarlet fever is a common childhood infection caused by Streptococcus pyogenes, or group A streptococcus (GAS). The early symptoms of scarlet fever include sore throat, headache, fever, nausea, and vomiting. After 12 to 48 hours the characteristic red, pinhead rash develops, typically first appearing on the chest and stomach, then rapidly spreading to other parts of the body, and giving the skin a sandpaper-like texture. The scarlet rash may be harder to spot on darker skin, although the ‘sandpaper’ feel should be present. Patients typically have flushed cheeks and pallor around the mouth. This may be accompanied by a ‘strawberry tongue’. As the child improves peeling of the skin can occur.

NEWS FROM THE CLASSROOMS

Reception Class

It’s been a very busy week in Reception again!

We have finished our ‘Giant’ pictures from our learning about the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and have now started to write instructions on how to grow a bean.

We have also spent a lot of time outside in the sunshine, playing in the sandpit and learning how to play the glockenspiel!

Year 1 and Year 2

With Wimbledon Tennis Championship approaching, Year 1 and 2 are starting to learn how to play tennis.

We have been practising our hand-eye coordination and we are already getting better at our bat and ball skills. We linked our warm up to our current topic Peter Rabbit and had fun pretending to be Mr McGregor and Peter Rabbit. In science, we have started our bean diaries and we are creating our own Keynote presentation to record it. We have taken photos of our beans, when we first planted them. We were so excited to find out, that a week later, they have all sprouted and started to grow.

Year 3 & Year 4

This week in Years 3 and 4, we have been busy finishing off our explanation text all about The River Nile and have moved onto an exciting new text, ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’ by Shirley Climo.

Both classes have been enjoying their music lessons, with Year 3 creating music using glockenspiel and Year 4 continuing with their string lessons.

In P.E, there has been excitement for both classes with Year 4 using the gymnastics apparatus and Year 3 learning how to dance around a maypole.  We are all looking forward to another fun-packed week next week!

Year 5 & Year 6

Year 5 and Year 6 have started learning the song lyrics for the end of year production!

It is……’Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies’!

We have chosen this one due to our topic this term – Crime & Punishment!  We are looking at the way justice has evolved through history.  One of the most famous criminals is Robin Hood himself so this links nicely into the topic!  We are also studying Outlaw by Michael Morpurgo next half term to really knit everything together.
