Week 3 of this half term has been busy and productive in Little Cypress, as always, despite it being a shorter week than usual. We have planted our Cress Mountain and are eagerly watching it closely to see when the mustard and cress seeds will start to sprout. We have been having close-up viewings by using magnifying glasses and we are having to be quite patient as some of us were expecting instant growth! We have predicted that there may be some sprouting by the time we come back to school after the weekend. We will keep you posted!
We have shown huge interest in numbers this week and have also been producing amazing artwork in the form of collages, drawings and paintings. This will stand us in good stead for our upcoming Art Week next week.
The Big Ask survey for school pupils
This term the Children’s Commissioner, Dame Rachel de Souza, launched The Big Ask – the largest ever survey of children in England. It asks all children about their priorities and concerns for the future, so that we can put children at the heart of the national recovery post-COVID-19.
Please support us in making sure that your child has had their say about what matters to them by completing this survey together and making their voice heard. Every single pupil’s voice is important. The deadline for completing the survey is Friday 28 May.
At school we are using a range of resources including lesson plans and activity packs to support children in understanding the purpose of the survey and sharing their ideas.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend!
