The week that was

Friday 09 September 2022

What an amazing first week class 5/6A have had!   I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all of the pupils in class this week; in turn we have shared some amazing stories from our summer holidays.

We’ve begun reading our new class text, “Secrets of the Sun King“; gone back in time to explore how the Stone Age civilisation made tools and provided for themselves; investigated how we can classify living organisms using Carl Linnaeus’ system; and scored goals in handball!                        Pupils have been issued with new reading records this week and brought home a new book. Help your child to get the term off to a flying start by encouraging reading for at least 15 minutes per day and recording this in their diary.  Our times table focus for homework is our 2s, 5s and 10s. Remember your PE kit for Monday and Wednesday afternoons!

Finally, our certificate winners for this week are…

For great learning…

Luella – really demonstrating our school rule of respect to others when working in class, and producing some excellent handwriting and grammar work. Well done.

For sport and physical activity…

Millie – for showing skill and enthusiasm during our handball sessions. You showed superb defensive skills and teamwork. Well done.

For living and learning…
