Last week was very busy with sporting events and our class assembly. Many congratulations to our P6/7 cross country team who came fourth overall and in particular, to two P6 boys WL and LR who narrowly missed out on 2nd place but gallantly ran across the line together to secure joint third. I believe each race had about 80 competitors or more. Also, a superb run from a P6 girl, ZM to secure fifth place, again out of a large field.
On Thursday, the boys enjoyed six short games of football in their tournament and I believe won 4 out of 6 so huge congratulations to them. Girls, it’s your turn this week, on Thursday afternoon!
Events this week:
Monday –*RUGBY* – I think this is the final week so huge thanks go to Bradley from LRC for his wonderful coaching.
Wednesday – Parents Evening from 17:30 onwards.
Thursday – Parents Afternoon from 15:30 onwards.
Girl’s Football Festival
Friday – World Porridge Day in aid of Mary’s Meals. World Porridge Day is actually on Wednesday but we have signed up for our porridge party, in association with local company STOATS, for Friday. This will not only raise funds and awareness for Mary’s Meals but also means extra fun on our last day before the October break.
Children get to help make a bowl of porridge, then decorate this with healthy toppings to make a smiling face. Photos will be taken of this. We ask for a small donation ( £2 is the suggested amount but whatever you can afford would be appreciated) It might be an idea for children ( who like porridge!) to either have a smaller breakfast or snack that day.
Here is a link for more info. I see that it has a ‘text £2 ‘ option so you could do that or bring a donation on the day. Many, many thanks!
Spelling – continues as normal
Reading – We will be doing reading comprehension in class this week so no reading homework as such, other than to remind children to try and read 2o minutes a day, texts of their choice.
Numeracy – no homework this week. Congratulations to those who participate in the weekly Sumdog challenges. I am keeping a table of results of who is in the top 10 each week.
Friday – END OF TERM @ 12:25pm. Wishing P6 a super fun and safe October break. All back on Tuesday 23rd October, bright and breezy, ready to board the Learning Train again! Choo choo!
