I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.
PE – Tuesday and Thursday – Children should come to school dressed for PE outdoors please.
Spelling – as normal
Numeracy – Times tables practice. This week, we’ll link measure activities with decimals work –converting cm to mms and cm to metres. Lots of practical ‘hands on’ measuring to be done.
December Activities –
Christmas Cards – Children are now able to post Christmas cards to other pupils in school as we have a Covid friendly system in place. Envelopes should have names and classes written clearly on the front.
Christmas Song – P6 chose ‘Walking in a Winter Wonderland’ to perform and film.
Christmas Activity Afternoon – Wear a Christmas jumper! Thursday 17th December. This costs£2 and covers food, prizes and a charitable donation. Thank you.
Pantos – We have two online Pantos to watch this year. We will watch the Brunton Theatre ‘Rapunzel’ performance this Thursday.
Mandarin – Children were so pleased to welcome back Miss Sun to teach Mandarin on Wednesday. Last week saw revision of greetings and numbers followed by a look at the Beijing Opera. Mandarin will continue on Wednesdays from now on.
Science – Again, children have been very enthusiastic, putting thoughts and ideas into practice with Mrs Cumming. Recently, we have been developing, testing and improving planes with ‘O’ wings. This has also allowed children to put maths into practice; measuring time, distance and ultimately working out speeds.
That’s all for now,
