Lymington Food Bank     

We are learning about ways to help people in our community. We have decided as a class to support The New Forest Food Bank in Lymington. We now collect food and toiletries and each week for the food bank. We take it in turns to telephone the food bank to ask them to collect our donations. We help pack the items up into bags and load them onto the van. We all really enjoyed our first visit to the food bank and hope to go again soon! (See our photos on the google classroom.)

 

This term a group of children in Yr 2 will be given the opportunity to take part in The Acorn Project at Oakhaven Hospice in Lymington. This is a very special project that enables children to visit the hospice each week for 3 weeks and work with the patients there on a piece of art work.

Handwriting

At Tiptoe School we learn cursive handwriting which means we learn to do lead ins and lead outs on all our lower case letters. We learn to write this way because it will help us to join our letters when we are ready to do so. 

 

 

In Year 2 we can earn a pen license when we can write using the correct letter formation!
