Hello again Super Skylarks!
I hope you are all well. I have enjoyed catching up with many of you over the phone and I am so glad to hear that you all main resilient and positive.
It is that time of year where typically you would get to experience 'Shuffle Up Day' and meet your new teacher. As this is unable to happen this year, I have attached 'All About Me' activities for you to complete that can be shared with your new teacher. Choose one of the templates and fill in the information. Think about the things you are looking forward to in September and maybe highlight any worries you may have. Template 1 Template 2

Learning of the week
Thomas and Dylan have both amazed me with their super learning this week. Both of these boys have clearly taken so much care and time over their different pieces and I am delighted to be able to share their learning with you all. Thomas created a brilliant fact file and completed the story opener activity whilst Dylan has been busy learning about sea creatures and produced a marvellous fact file. Dylan also created a superb 'Under the Sea' collage - head over to the Manor Fields Instagram to have a look.

The attic was cold and the thick cobwebs that surrounded the dusty boxes were like grey clouds. George peered between the boxes hoping to find his old collection of toys. It was not a toy that caught his attention though but an old, worn suitcase. Curiosity got the better of him and George slowly opened the lid of the suitcase. Inside there was a mirror, a compass, a map and a note. George read the note, "Please come and save us before it's too late..."

Skylarks have been learning about strong structures and focusing on bridges in DT. We have tested bridges and created different types of truss. We learnt about arches and suspension bridges. The children then designed a prototype of a bridge based on a success criteria and a brief. They all did a brilliant job and it seems we might have some engineers in the making!
