It is vital that your child attends school every day that week. Tests will begin at 9am and therefore they need to be in school no later than 8:45am. In order to help them perform to the best of their abilities, we are inviting every child to have breakfast at school (Monday – Thursday). We will be inviting the children to join breakfast club from 8:15am where we will serve a choice of cereals or toast and a glass of apple/orange juice or milk. There will be no cost for the breakfast.
Please note, this letter has also been sent out as a paper copy.
This Week In School…
Year 3 – have continued to learn fractions and have completed their Just So stories which proves how great our Year 3s’ imaginations are! In Humanities, they have just begun to look at Europe as a continent while in Science, they have just started looking at how human body works.
Year 4 – have been working on writing a narrative story based on the character Edward Tulane. In Maths, they have been learning about symmetry, 2D shapes and all their properties.
Year 5 – have created a leaflet about Epcot and all the magical attractions Disneyland has to offer which links in with our book of the half-term. In Maths, they have been learning about angles and how to find missing angles. Year 5 went exploring the playground in search of angles. They have also learnt about keys and symbols in an atlas in geography.
Year 6 – have been producing some great persuasive writing linked to their book, Varmints. They have also had a big focus on grammar this week in preparation for the upcoming SATs. Keep up the hard work Year 6!
We have provisionally booked a 4-night residential visit to the Windmill Hill near Hailsham, Sussex from
Monday 14th October – Friday 18th October 2019. The visit includes a full programme of activities and is similar to those we have run in the past. The group will be accompanied by teaching staff from the school and fully qualified instructors at the centre supervise each activity. Whilst the trip is not essential for curriculum purposes, it provides an excellent opportunity for children to extend their learning and to refine their personal and social skills. A meeting for parents giving detailed arrangements will be held nearer the time.
