Notices & Reminders

Reminders-

1) MONDAY- We are going to our local Church as part of our RE topic. This will be done between Break time and Lunch time.

2) A reminder that Tuesday 24th September 2019 is an INSET day. Children can access Mathletics and various resources from our homework page. 

3) Please could you bring any thick card ready for next Wednesday's Topic lesson, that would be AMAZING!

4) If you have any empty glass bottles (we only need one per child) that would help in our English work. This will be part of our letters when we send them to Zoe's father.

Week 3 Complete!

What a very busy week we have had and it is only going to get even more busy!

Firstly, I want to say a huge thank you to the homework that has been coming in. Some of the quality of work is outstanding and is on display in class. Some children have  been so proud of their work they have put it on their best work frame!

Some children wrote a letter to Mrs Spearman regarding how we can make the school even better. Not only were they written in detail but they actually went to Mrs Spearman who wrote back to them. Children were very excited to receive these letters.

Talking about letters, we have been focusing on this week on letter writing. We looked at a WAGOLL ( what a good one looks like) to magpie ideas on how to write a letter. Then, a mysterious parcel was delivered to the school. A bottle with a letter in it. This letter was form Zoe's father ( from our class book , Floodland) where he wanted to check if Zoe was ok and if she could rescue him. Children have been very excited doing this and we have planned it this week ready to write up next week before we send them off ( don't worry we won't be throwing the bottles in the sea, this would pollute our planet!)

In Maths this week, we have continued to look at place value, spending time on comparing numbers and understanding how to read numbers on number lines. This includes understanding what occurs before zero. We have also begun to count in powers of 10 preparing us for our next unit in Maths which hopefully will be the end of next week.  

In Art we are beginning to create our large versions of the scene of the Great Wave of which many children are using different ways to decorate. This includes: paints, oil pastels, pencils, shading, pens and normal pastels. 

In Science this week, we have continued to look at plants and we decided to grow plants but not from seed! We took parts of plants and wondered if they are going to grow. We shall keep you informed!

Next week, Monday we are going to the Church to look at the key features and Tuesday is an INSET day. 

Finally, we began to look at what rivers were and learnt about meanders and dams. Children enjoyed seeing videos as well as sharing facts they learnt through their homework. This is key for your children's progress this year and I'm thrilled so many children are on board with it!

We hope you enjoy your weekend and we will see you bright and fresh Monday.

Mr Worton-Geer and Mrs Stockwell.
