Good afternoon, I was reminded of a challenge my sister and I used to do when we were at primary school (a LONG time ago). It was called the 'matchbox challenge'.
Basically you give each child taking part a small box (must be the same size each) and challenge them to fit as many DIFFERENT objects in the box as they can in an hour.
Some ideas (from my past) - a drawing pin!! a paperclip, a hair, a ring, an elastic band, a tiny piece of string, a button, a Barbie shoe... The list is endless and I'm sure your child will find some very imaginative things to put in it!
They can play against family or as a challenge for themselves- can you find more than 30 things to fit in your box?
I hope they have a go at this, I remember loving it as a child!
Take care Mrs Herring
Welcome to Fox cubs class
Mrs Bray, Miss Taylor and I are looking forward to welcoming you all into our Year 2 class and hope you have had a lovely summer.
As we begin the new school year there are just a few reminders and some helpful information for you.
P.E will be on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon (Thursday outdoor weather permitting) so please could we ensure that the correct kit is kept in school during term time. For safety reasons if children have pierced ears please can they bring tape to cover them during P.E.
Spellings will take place on a Tuesday afternoon. Your child will bring home a folder with spellings in and they need to complete one per week.
We also have 'library' on Friday afternoon. Your child will be able to choose a book to bring home - this is NOT their school reading book, but a book they may want to share with you or their siblings. It may also be a book they would like you to read to them. As long as the book is returned each week your child can swap it for a different book to bring home.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.
We look forward to a busy but exciting year ahead.
