I hope everyone had a nice break. We only have a short week ahead before heading off to camp next Tuesday.
Info for this week:
Wednesday – PE – Please can everyone have a full PE kit to change into.
- No Lunchtime Drawing Club
Friday – Dress Down Day – I realise most P7s will miss our Halloween disco next Thursday due to camp, so it’s up to you if your child would like to dress down and bring a tombola prize as a donation for the disco.
Independent Study Task – Children have chosen which area of World War 2 they would like to research independently. We will plan this properly over the next few days and draw up a timetable for this. I will not send home any maths this week or next. Thanks to all who completed the volume task.
World War 2 Topic –If anyone has a family member who remembers WW2 as a child and would like to share their stories with us, that would be incredible. We will start to read Carrie’s War in class as our latest novel.
Numeracy – We have formed ‘Times Teams’ in class – a buddy system which focuses on learning our times tables efficiently. This really is a priority as poor knowledge of times tables impacts on so many other areas of numeracy. Maths – We’ll revise time telling using a normal clock face, digital clock and 12/24 hour clock.
Card designs – The annual card design activity is upon us. Children will design a card at school and bring this home for you to view and order a set of cards if you wish. This is a great fundraiser for school funds. **There has been a time extension to this so if anyone still has one to hand in, please do so this week with the correct money please.**
School Camp – The children and I will discuss camp this week and ensure we all are prepared for next week. The countdown is on! If your child is not going to camp, we will discuss what his/her timetable will look like next week too.
Learning Trio Notes – The notes discussed at the Parents’ Meetings should be sent home by Friday.
Clock Change – Just a reminder that the clocks go back one hour this weekend.
Thanks for your support,
Miss S Brunt
