This is a posting to cover the final two weeks of term as it is such a busy time for all. I probably won’t post next week ( unless I have forgotten something!)
Reading– We will just finish the books we already have and no new book will be issued until January. In class we will be doing other reading tasks which do not involve homework. Please do, however, encourage your child to keep reading a variety of texts over the holidays- comics, annuals, Christmas/winter stories etc.
Spelling – this is the final week of spelling homework – List 16 ‘magic e’ (o-e). I will be checking the green jotters to mark last week’s homework later in the week.
Sumdog – I will put on a P2 Christmas 2016 Challenge for those who wish to participate. This will start running from Tuesday.
Events and Reminders – I’ve just listed dates that you need to know about but there are other in-school events such as campus sing-a-longs, House Team singing contests, Christmas activity days and much more also happening!
The campus talent show final is on Thursday 22nd. Only two acts from each class go through. Therefore, I will be holding P2 talent auditions on the morning of Tuesday 20th December. If your child needs music, they need to bring this in themselves. Let me know in advance if your child needs any other equipment ( gym mats, etc!)
Nativity – Monday 12th December (Doors open at 1:15pm)
The nativity performance is upon us…rehearsals have gone well. The children have worked extremely hard…all that we need now is…you!
We have asked that only two adults per child attend please. We know this can be difficult but with a cast of 49 children, the space in the hall soon fills up. No tickets required.
Christmas Lunch – Wednesday 14th
Most children have filled in the green slip about what they would like for the Christmas lunch. If you haven’t done so, please do. Children may bring a packed lunch if they prefer.
Christmas Party – Tuesday 20th ( after lunch) Cost £1
(Talent show auditions am)
P1 and P2 are having their party together. Children may wear their party clothes all day ( bear in mind they will go out to play break and lunch) or they can change into their party gear at lunchtime. We have a special visit from Santa planned at about 2:15pm, at which time you are warmly invited to attend to watch the excitement!
Thursday 22nd – Campus Talent Show Final
Friday 23rd – CHURCH service
***END OF TERM – 12 NOON***
All resume Monday 9th January 2017…which leaves me to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
