A message from Mrs Overson; the children have all had a great night sleep and we had to wake them all up at 7.15am for breakfast.
The school council would like to thank everyone who donated buns and money. Thank you to the children for dressing up in something spotty!
We raised over £500 – amazing!
Thank you to all the parents and grandparents that attended the phonics and reading meeting this morning for F2 and KS1. It was a great turnout and hopefully gave parents the information they need to help them support their child with reading at home. The presentation and all handouts can be found on the school website.
We are very excited to announce the launch of our new reading challenge next week. Look out for the letter your child will be bringing home explaining more about it. See if you can spot the reading challenge displays as they appear in classrooms over the next week. We look forward to seeing who can achieve the bronze award first!
We have been looking at x and / numbers (including decimals) by 10, 100 and 1,000. We used a place value grid with counters to support but most importantly, we learnt that we don’t just add a 0!
Great work Class 14!
Well done to the KS1 and EYFS house point winners this week! It was a delight to deliver assembly this morning and announce the winners. We celebrated lots of successes in and out of school. I have also set the new attendance challenge – let’s see which class is the winner!
We have had lots of ‘Have a go Henry’s’ in class 3 this week.
I challenged this children to add labels and captions to their work and the work produced following our Red Riding Hood story absolutely blew me away! Well done guys!!
Today we have been finding verbs and adjectives in sentences and discussing how they are different. The children have really enjoyed this and these skills are vital for them to have a sound understanding of grammar and comprehension in their reading. When your child reads with you at home you could ask them to identify the verbs and adjectives and question them about their knowledge and this will further enhance their reading skills.
Well done to Ryan on his ‘Custard Cream Colosseum’!
He said, “It took me about 2 hours to make and it was hard work but I enjoyed doing it!”
