As most of you know tomorrow (Thursday 12th May) is P6’s class assembly. Parents are invited to come and watch it at 2:30pm.
Last week P6 had their last French lesson with Stephanie and surprised her with a collection of British school songs, poems, rhymes and food as a thank you for all that she shared with us about French culture.
As P6 have their class assembly next Thursday (12th) afternoon, their main homework this week and next will be to prepare for it. This will involve learning lines and practising their plays.
All students still have spelling words and should read the next two or three chapters in their group reading books, depending on what we agree in class for each group.
You should also be practising all times tables.
All groups have spelling words to learn.
Read chapter one of your new group reading book and be ready to discuss it in your literature circles next week. Also think of five open/fat questions (that can’t be answered with one word) about the chapter.
Due Monday 25th April
Welcome back to the new term, I hope everyone has enjoyed the holiday.
All groups have spelling words to learn for next week’s dictation.
Everyone needs to bring in a picture of a person either from a magazine or photo which they will be able to use to talk about their clothes in French. We will be learning the vocabulary in French to help but if you want to look extra words up to help you that’s great.
All due Monday 18th April
Over the last two weeks P6 has been learning to tell the time in French so we went outside to test how well we could understand by making the time when we heard it in French. This week we did the same but using ourselves as the clock hands!
On Monday P6 were set off on an Easter maths hunt in the playgroup where 12 maths problems were hidden. Miss Longford was extremely impressed with how well everyone cooperated and their were some excellent discussions about how to solve the problems – all in the beautiful spring sunshine too!

Secondary schools in England could have longer school days due to new government plans.
George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, is responsible for setting out how the government plans to spend its money each year in his budget.
In a speech yesterday he announced that he wants to allow head teachers of English secondary schools to scrap traditional “home time” and instead decide themselves what time the school day will end.
This means that school days could be longer.
The Chancellor says his plans will mean “every child gets the best start in life”. But some teachers say it’s more complicated, and that they’re already offering after school activities.
