Just before Easter, the children performed in our play Pirates vs Mermaids. They were absolutely fantastic in it. I have seldom seen such enthusiasm or dedication to a production.
Thank you to all the parents who created such spectacular costumes and helped them to rehearse their lines at home.
Welcome to Octopus Class (Mrs Webber)
We have had a great start to the year and the children have really got stuck in.
Here are the answers to some questions that you may have...
Who will be teaching the class?
On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning (until 10:10am) I will be teaching the class. Miss Dyer will be teaching from 10:10am on Thursday and Mrs James will be teaching all day on Friday.
When is PE?
On Monday afternoons the children will be taught by a qualified PE coach. On Thursday afternoons the children will have dance lessons with Miss Dyer. Please make sure the children have their PE kits, including appropriate footwear and socks on Monday. Also, if your child needs an asthma inhaler, please make sure this is in school and is in date. A letter will be sent home if appropriate kit is not in school.
When is homework set?
The most important thing we want children to do at home is read. Ideally we would like children to read for at least 10 minutes each day, but longer would be better. It is also really beneficial for them to have stories read to them, particularly chapter books.
Every Monday the children have spellings set for a test on Friday.
There will be maths homework set on a Monday to be handed in on Friday. This is a choice of an internet based activity (which need a signature to say it has been done) or a paper based activity (at at least 2 different levels). Certain children may also be sent additional work.
If children do not have access to the internet or cannot get onto MyMaths, then they can attend homework club on a Thursday lunchtime in the ICT suite.
If you have any questions, please phone school and I will call you back or pop in after school.
