MESSAGE FROM MRS COLLINS

SANDFIELD PTA

Every parent and carer is a member of the Sandfield Parent Teacher Association (PTA) when your child joins Sandfield and the committee are always looking for volunteers to help organise or help out at events throughout the year.  As a school, we greatly appreciate all the support our PTA give to the children at Sandfield.  The support really does make a difference.

Our main fundraising events are the Christmas Fair and Sandfest in the summer, however, there are lots of other events planned and this is where you all come in, please let your Class Parent Rep know if you can help at any event.  If you are unsure of who your Rep is, please click here>>

We have an extremely successful PTA and any money raised goes to increase learning opportunities for every child at Sandfield to benefit from.

NEWS FROM THE CLASSROOMS

RECEPTION CLASS

Another busy week in Reception- from creepy crawlies to delicious citrus soup! Our funky fingers have been working hard at pinching, pulling and sorting minibeasts and pipe cleaner worms to build up strength and stamina for writing.  

In our water tray area, we tried an array of citrus fruits: limes, lemons, oranges, blood oranges, pink and white grapefruit. We described the taste of each one using super adjectives then put them together to make yummy citrus soup. All week, the fresh scent of citrus permeated throughout every room in Reception. 

In maths, we went to the ice cream shop! We practised counting in correspondence to make the right amount of scoops for each cone that was ordered. 

REMINDER: P.E days for Reception Class is Friday.

YEAR 1 & YEAR 2

There has been lots of excitement in KS1 in our RE lessons this week as we have been learning about Christian signs and symbols. The children have enjoyed learning about the meaning of the different symbols, choosing their favourite one and decorating their stones.
Well done Year 1 & Year 2.
Reminder: PE days for Year 1 is Monday and Year 2 is Tuesday.

YEAR 3 & YEAR 4

Year 3 and Year showed their amazing writing skills this week with their version of ‘Jamil’s Clever Cat’. They changed part of the story to make it their own – and we had some great ideas for different animals, different occupations and different endings! You can read their stories on Seesaw along with our suggestions for improvements.

We are looking forward to our new writing unit using ‘Cinnamon’ by Neil Gaiman as the stimulus.

Art this week focused on printing, using the illustrations from Jamil as inspiration. They did discover that printing can be a messy business (Mrs Dorman now has a lovely multicoloured skirt!) but what great results! These are now ready to use to make a collage of an animal.

Well done Year 3 and Year 4, lovely creative work this week.

Reminders: Please note PE on Wednesday (joggers and hoodies) and indoor PE on Thursday (shorts and t-shirts).

Year 4 String Scheme takes place every Friday (please see the calendar on our website for exact dates), please ensure all instruments are in school.

YEAR 5 & YEAR 6

It’s been another busy week in Year 5 and Year 6.  We are writing our diary entry as if we are Jim Hawkins!  Billy Bones has died at our feet and we are recovering from pirates ransacking our little inn.

In other subjects, Mrs Collins has taken on the role of football coach in PE.  There are some super skills and I may have even seen a Cruyff turn when I was on duty in the cage!

Mrs Davey has almost finished the sea shanties and its all ‘yo ho ho’ whilst they record their own versions!

REMINDER: P.E. days for Year 5 is Tuesday and Wednesday and Year 6 is Tuesday & Thursday.
