The Week Ahead

January 20, 2020

Our new topic 'China' has got off to a great start!   We have been learning about where China is in the world and some of the customs and facts it is famous for.   Last week we learnt about inventions that China is recognised for; learning about some that were quite surprising.  Did you know that China invented 'Ketchup', long before Heinz took it over?

This week we will be discovering more about the Great Wall of China and learning about the Chinese New Year.

We will be talking further about Woodlands Outdoor Education Centre visit on the 3rd February to the children so they will be prepared as much as they can be to the experience and enable them to understand what are the expectations.  More details will be provided in a final letter when everything has been confirmed.  A 'shop' list of prices of souvenirs will be emailed to parents later on this week.

The spelling test this week are based on the Year5/6 spelling list.  The test will be a 'pick and mix' on Thursday.   Maths homework is due in on Thursday.

P.E. is on Monday for Year 5 and 6 and Thursday for Year 6.   Year 5 continue to have Forest School on Thursday afternoons.   Please ensure that warm clothes are brought to be used during our winter season.

The Week Ahead

December 16, 2019

This last week of Term 2 is filled with exciting activities in the run up to Christmas.  Apart from class work, there are two singing engagements for KS2.  On Wednesday, we will be leaving school at 10.40 a.m. to entertain residents and visitors at Sue Ryder Hospice.  Every year, we have been thanked and told how appreciative the folks there enjoy our singing.    On Thursday after an early lunch, and before the end of the day, we will be singing again at 12.45 p.m.   Please come and listen and join with us as we finish off 2019 at school.

Also, Wednesday is Christmas jumper day; Christmas dinner and Christmas parties - so it will be really busy.

Please wear normal school uniform but change the jumper to a Christmas one if you so wish.   

There is no spelling test this week, but there is maths homework due in on Thursday.  Please see the School round-up letter for more information about this week.

Last week we have made Christmas gifts -linked to maths and cooking.  Please see the photo above of our handiwork - they look really good!    I'm wondering if they made it home unopened!

It just leaves me to wish you a very merry Christmas and a restful time with your families.
