Week 7

In English this week, we have been using our Mr Men or Little Miss plans to create our own story. We thought carefully about what we wanted to happen in our story at the beginning, middle and end. We even illustrated our stories. At the end of the week, we went into Class 1 and shared our story with some of the children in there.

During our maths lessons, we have been looking carefully at our number bonds to 10. Number bonds or number pairs are pairs of numbers that make up a given number (10). For example 1 + 9 = 10.

Over the half term, I would be great if you could practise your number bonds to 10. You can write these down or your grown up at home can verbally test you like we do in class.

E.g. If I say 4 you say… 6

Well done to all of you for your fantastic home learning this half term. I look forward to see what you produce next half term!

Reminders:

  • A new home learning grid will be sent out after half term with different activities for the children to complete 6 of.
  • Reading evening – Thursday 2nd November at 6pm.

I hope you all have a lovely half term.

Autumn, Week 7

The first half term complete! All the children have been working exceptionally hard during their lessons over the last seven weeks and I am so proud to see them growing into very independent learners. Also, everyone has been very welcoming to our new pupils and it has been lovely to see new friendships forming. To the great bunch I have in Class 5, have a lovely, restful and fun half term and I will see you all on Monday 30th J

Autumn 1, Week 7

Well here we are at the end of our first half term of school, and what a half term it has been!  This week we have been thinking about police officers and the children have been having great fun in role as ‘cops and robbers’ this week…we have even had a few traffic officers handing out speeding tickets to scooters in our outside area so watch out!  We have also had a great time learning all about the festival of Diwali yesterday.  The children dressed up in beautiful Indian clothing, created their own Diva lamps using clay, learnt the story of Rama and Sita and even created their own Rangoli patterns using coloured sand, powder and powder paint.  Watch out for some of our lovely Diwali learning in our learning journeys soon!

Half term tasks

Over the half term, we ask that you can support your children in the following ways, by encouraging them to practise the following…

  1. Children to practise forming each letter from the alphabet; both capital and lower case. Make sure they know the name of each letter as well as the sound it makes.
  2. Children to recognise and write their numbers to 20.  Want a challenge?  Practise writing numbers to 100!
  3. Children to learn one more and less than a number.
  4. Learn how to pay for items using small coin amounts.
  5. Please sure your child knows how to write their name!  We are finding lots of children are having difficulty with this, this year.

  6. Have some fun!

Thank you all for your continued support this half term.  Wishing you all a great half term break!

Personal Support Plans

We are still waiting for a number of Personal Support Plans to be returned.  These are for some children who have additional support to help them meet their educational and personal objectives.  If relevant, please can you double check that you have signed a copy and returned it to us. 

We really value your comments  and feedback to check that we are aligned about the priorities for your child.  Having up to date PSPs in school informs our intervention planning, and is an important part of our provision under the SEN Code of Practice.  

If you would like to discuss the objectives written on the Personal Support Plan, please feel free to speak to your child's Class Teacher, or to get in touch with me directly.  Many thanks,  Mrs Nichols

First Ever Class 6 Assembly!

A huge well done Class 6!

You have all worked so hard this week to pull together the work that you shared today in your first ever Class 6 assembly. A moment in the history of the school. I am so proud of you all and thought you were brilliant. I would also like to thank the parents and families that came to watch, along with Nicola from Hetties Helpers Hedgehog Rescue. We hope you all enjoyed it.

It will not be long till we meet again. This Wednesday is of course the SATs evening at school. If you have even had a child who went through SATs last year it is always good to come along as it is forever changing. I know a lot of parents have replied and yes children you can come along too.

So apart from a Class assembly what have we been up to this week?

In English we kept our learning around hedgehogs but took on a different style of writing. We looked more in detail at the skills of persuasive writing of advertisements. You heard some of these today in our assembly and may have noticed a few more on the display in the main foyer. Keeping up with our learning powers the children could change the style, so from a written radio script to TV ad - or a poster to a online advert. The language required for writing like this, is so important. We do hope you liked hearing them, some great expressive readers.

In Maths we started the week with ordering fractions and by the end of the week were adding fractions. We have some lovely new maths books from which we have been working from which are quite challenging but our powers help us to get through it. Next week we shall be moving on and making connections between fractions, decimals and percentages.

In Dance we have loved seeing a number of presentations from children as part of their homework grids. It is so lovely to see their confidence blossoming and everyone in class is always so supportive. Next week we shall be recording our group dances which have definitely progressed across the half term.

I also know that lots of children are also working hard at the swimming pool each Monday afternoon. Please try to remember to ensure that your child’s clothing and swimming kit are clearly labelled.

In RE we had time to research and find out about the work of Christian and Islamic Aid. This was something that proved a little challenging at first for a few of us, but we persevered and learnt quite a lot. We discussed how it was also beneficial that we knew more about the global community that we live in.

With Mrs Archer the children are producing some amazing oil pastel replicas of Steve Browns ‘Highland Cow ‘images. The care and attention to detail has been truly stunning and I can’t wait for them to be finished, and displayed.

As this first half term draws to a close (1 week left) I have been very impressed and grateful for all the reading that has taken place and the responsibility and ownership that the children have shown in their learning. I will be explaining how valuable reading is at the SATs evening and of course come along to hear more at the Reading Evening after half term.

It was lovely to hear the children’s thoughts and feelings with the new homework grid. Mrs Peddie praised the children for such beautiful pieces of work. A number of children have now completed all 6 for this half term. For those who have a few (or more) to go you still have a week to get these pieces handed in. A lot of strategies were shared and top tips on time management were discussed, which will help with the new grid, which will be released after half term. I have been super impressed and some hidden talents out there.

I hope the football squad play well today at the cup match, as I’m sure they will. I can’t wait to hear the match report next week.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. See you on Monday.

Mrs Stewart
