Aspirations week in Cedar

This week has been aspirations week across the school. On Monday we had a talk about different jobs in the NHS and that there are no gender roles in the NHS and women can be doctors and men can be nurses. We all designed our own doctor and nurse.

We have finished looking at the seasons this week and have made our own seasons wheel and painted how the trees look in each season.

On Thursday we had our changeover morning where Cedar went to Mrs Coe in Maple Class to get used to how it will be in September when they are in year 2.

Wedding fever in Cedar

We have done a lot to explore and celebrate the royal wedding! We have designed wedding dresses, a wedding outfit for Cedar Bear and cakes and made chocolate mint leaves, which could decorate a cake. We looked at why people get married and different types of weddings. We also married our Cedar Bear to Maples bear Snuggles George. We then had a school party and watched the wedding.

Please read and practice phonics sounds with your child over half term.
