We had a fantastic turn out today for our pyjama day for Children in Need.Thank you for all of your donations and support. When I know the total I will let you know but it was great fun!
This week in school is book week! Throughout the week if your child has a favourite book or a book they are reading at home as we will be partaking in DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) and will be reading at regular intervals throughout the day.
Just a quick reminder that Thursday is a dress up day in school and children are encouraged to dress up as their favourite book character. I have my costume prepped and at the ready!
Finally as it is book week this is a good opportunity to share our favourite stories with each other therefore I am asking that children prepare a short talk of 2-3 minutes on their favourite book. Information should include:
- The book title and author
- Why they like the book and their favourite part of the story
- Their favourite character and least favourite character and why.
I will hear the talks on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Children can present with notes, power points or drawings if they choose but it is not essential.
Our spelling sound this week for homework is ou as in u eg double, trouble country etc.
This week I will also be sending home a large yellow homework jotter which contains a home learning wall similar to the spelling menu. Again children are asked to complete one brick on the wall each week and colour it in red, yellow or green based on understanding. As some of the activities are practical and may not be able to be evidenced in the jotter pictures may be stuck in to the jotters or just a short note to let me know how they got on.
