The children were very excited this morning to find our new pet had arrived. We have voted for his name and the most popular choice was Fish. Chips will be joining him next week.
We have had a fabulous start to the year in Nightingale class. The children have settled very quickly and are working hard. We are very excited about our new arrival this week! Hopefully our fish tank will have an occupant on Friday.
Well, it’s a sad week. It is my last week in St.Philips school. I’ve been in this lovely school for 11 years and it’s been an amazing journey. I just wanted to say thank you children and parents for all of your support for the blog and for everything else.
To this year’s Nightingale Class, I’d like to say thank you for making my last year here so much fun. We’ve had a great time together learning and laughing as a class. Now, as you go off to year 3 and the juniors, I hope and pray that you have a great time next year with your new teachers.
The last thing I want to do is give you some HOMEWORK! This homework is for all of the children I have taught since being in this school and this homework will last for the rest of your lives. No matter what you face in your future, no matter what you do, I want you to do one thing for me:
Thanks again lovely people of St Philip’s
The children did an amazing job in our Summer Festival this year with a rendition of the story ‘Dinosaurs and all that Rubbish’. Here is the video of their dress rehearsal if you missed it.
I love Marley’s effort in her learning and lessons. She always has her head down and is always working hard. It is really lovely to see someone who lives her life by the philosophy of: ‘Have-a-go’ which is, of course, my favourite saying. Thank you, Marley, for what you bring to Nightingale Class.
I have been so pleased with Ava’s kindness this year. She thinks of others and tries her hardest to get along with everyone. People like Ava are the glue that sticks Nightingale Class together. Thank you, Ava.
Marley is such a wonderful person to have in my class. She always comes in happy and is always ready to learn. She tries hard in all she does and she loves learning new things. Thank you, Marley, for making such a difference to Nightingale Class.
Rhodri was the man of the match today in our cricket game. He was the last batsman in his team and he had to score 10 to draw and 11 to win. He kept his head and controlled the bat really carefully scoring all 11 runs to win the match for his team. He was brilliant at keeping a cool head when the pressure was on. Well done, Rhodri!
What a lot of fun we’ve had in our Arts Week! We used the Holburne Museum’s ‘take one picture’ project and took inspiration around the picture. We also looked at the Palladian Bridge and drew art, design and technology inspiration from the world famous bridge.
