We have had a fantastic first term. We are all settled and adjusted to the class and school routines. The children have produced some amazing learning.
This week in Literacy we planned and wrote our hot write stories based on Flotsam. We finished the week by creating a blurb and a front cover for our stories.
In Maths Year 5 have been looking at how to complete, read and interpret tables including timetables, they have needed to use their knowledge of telling and reading the time to do so. Please encourage them to read and tell the time at home.
Year 6 have been doing some SATs practice papers to identify who and where they need support so they can be targeted for extra support next term.
We have completed our learning for our topic 'Earth as an Island'. Mr Bowles linked our topic to Spanish and the children were able to have a Spanish food tasting session. We also concluded our Science investigation where we have been observing how quick mould grows on bread. We were glad to see the mouldy bread go in the bin.
Next term our topic is called 'What Price Progress'. This will have a Technology focus.
In P.E. the children completed their football sessions with the coach and had a tournament, which they really enjoyed.
School Uniform
Next term, any children wearing trainers (except on their P.E. day) will be sent to the office to wear plimsolls. Shoes must be worn as part of our school uniform policy.
Home Learning
A BIG well done to all of you who completed your Science home learning. We have really enjoyed looking at them. Half term home learning has been assigned on Teams. We are asking the children to invent a gadget and make it or produce a PPT about it. Once we are back at school, we will have a Dragon's Den session where the children can present their invention to each other.  
There are still a lot of children not accessing Teams. Please let us know if you have any issues with Teams.
Football Team
Well done to all of the children in our school football team. You have had an amazing start to the year. 
We would like to wish you all a happy and safe half term and we will see you on Tuesday 2nd November 2021.  P.E. will be every Friday after half term. Our first session will be on Friday 5th November 2021.
