Teaching Assistants -  Miss Bell and Mrs Issac

17th January 

The children have had a great second week back and are working very hard. 

In English, the children wrote some beautiful character descriptions about a hobbit-like species and I really enjoyed reading them. In Maths, the children recapped their knowledge of long multiplication and long division and completed some complex word problems involving all four operations. Mrs Zalar was extremely impressed with her group. 

In RE, we continued to look at pilgrimages and learnt about why Lourdes is a sacred place for Christians. In Science, we learnt about the eye and were about to label and describe the functions of the parts of the eye. We enjoyed beginning our PowerPoints in Humanities getting ready to present our tour of the Americas. We had a peaceful (would you believe it) lesson drawing patterns in Art and designing the fonts for our 3D name sculpture. 

Year 6 are lucky enough to get expert computing lessons every week now and this week we learnt the basics of computing and about how important detailed instructions are. 

Homework books: 

The children have received their Maths SATS workbook today. I have sent out a letter (email) about the new homework system and the children should have a timetable of their homework in their folder. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. 

I hope you all have a good weekend, 

Miss Mee 

10th January 

First week back from Christmas completed! The children have come back with really positive attitudes and I have been really impressed with their work ethic at the beginning of this term! 

I know a lot of children have been attending numerous secondary school tests. I know they have all worked extremely hard and they should be very proud of themselves! 

This week in Maths we have been revising percentages of amounts and learning how to find the volume of a cube and a cuboid. In English, we have begun reading 'The Hobbit' and the children did a brilliant job answering questions about the first chapter. They also had a go at writing expanded noun phrases based on the description of Hobbiton.  

We had a thoroughly interesting and thought-provoking workshop about Modern Slavery. The children learnt about the seriousness of modern slavery and the amount of people who get trapped. 

In RE we introduced our new topic of Pilgrimages and learnt about some important Pilgrimages that Christians go on. In Science, we have recapped what we already know about light. They thought about how we see, shadows and different types of materials. Next week, we will be learning all about the human eye. In Art, we have started our new topic of 3D name sculptures and the children annotated different famous sculptures around the world. They also had a go at creating interesting patters which they will include in their 3D sculpture. 

Request from Reception

Reception class are wanting to update their collection of fancy dress clothes. If you have any costumes (Ages 5 -6) at home that you no longer want then please donate them to the Reception class. Any costumes would be welcome but we would really like some more costumes that are book characters, professions or from traditional tales. Thank you, Mrs Noonan  

 I hope you all have a restful weekend, 

Miss Mee 

20th December

We've made to the end of our first term and what a term it's been! 

The children have improved so much over the course of this term and have worked incredibly hard. 

The highlight of this week was their brilliant performance at the Carols by Candlelight. I was amazed at the turn out and how beautifully they all sang. Well done Year 6!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. 
Best wishes, 
Miss Mee

13th December 

Although the children (and adults) have still been recovering from our farm trip, it has been a full-on week! The children had their end of term tests to complete this week and I have been really pleased with both their attitude towards these tests and their effort. Just the Grammar test to complete now! 

In English, we have been writing a recount about our Treginnis trip and we have really enjoyed writing them. There was a lot to include as it was a packed week on the farm. In Maths, they have been completing their test papers. 

Year 6 had an enjoyable maths workshop on Wednesday. The workshop was run by explore learning from the Natural History Museum and they were looking for children to represent the school in a Maths competition. To see if the children were up for the task, they were set a number of problem solving activities. The main activity was based around exhibits in the Natural History Museum. The children had to work out a route through the museum where they could see the most exhibits and a route where they would see the least exhibits. They worked in teams to solve this problem and we were looking out for logical problem solving and good team work. I was really impressed with Year 6’s listening skills, team work and logical thinking during this workshop.

The children also had a curling workshop where they had a go at aiming to reach a target. They all found it enjoyable. 

In RE, we looked at Church advertisements around Christmas time and how best to encourage people to go to Church more. The children then created eye-catching advertisements to promote Christmas in Churches. 

In every other spare moment of the day, the children have been practising for the 'Carols by Candlelight' which is on Tuesday 17th December.

A few reminders:  

Monday - PE will be in the afternoon so children to come into school in full school uniform with their PE kit for the afternoon

- All library books must be returned by today

Tuesday -  Carols by Candle light Service in St Peter's Church at 6pm. All children have been involved and are expected to be there for the performance

Wednesday - Winning House Trip in the afternoon 

Thursday - KS2 Christmas Quiz in the morning 

Friday - Christmas Church Service at 9am 

- School finishes at 2pm. 

I hope you have a good weekend.

Day Four – Treginnis Farm

Our final full day at the farm! Our morning was filled with our usual farm tasks before sun rise and breakfast. We were rewarded for our hard work with freshly baked croissants – yum!

After lunch, we had our presentation from the farmers where they gave everyone a badge for their hard work and some particularly impressive children a certificate for being ‘Farmers of the Week’.  I know the farmers had a hard time choosing just two children from every group as everyone has been so great!

Next, we had our coastal walk down to the beach. It was a windy and cold walk but the children still loved getting wet in sea! They had fun paddling, rock pooling and making rafts.

Our final evening will be packing and ensuring we are well-rested for our journey home. We will be leaving around 8:30am so are hoping for a 3pm arrival but will keep you posted via the office.

A huge thanks for all the adults on the trip! Also a big congratulation to the children for having such a great time and for getting stuck in and embracing the farm!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day Three - Treginnis Farm 

Another early start for Year 6. By 7:30am, the children were out and about on the farm getting the animals fed and watered. We continued to top up the log pile so we could have a nice and warm fire in the dining room. One group had a nice, long walk with the dogs while the others tended to the animals. 

For lunch, we had delicious burgers and roast new potatoes. Each group also had the chance to make their own pizzas for dinner! They made the dough and then added sauce, toppings and cheese. Some had more toppings then base but they were still very tasty! Miss Frazer apparently made an 'ideal' pizza however Maddy did not agree with this as she thought hers was 'much much better'. 

Lots more fun to be had tomorrow including a long coastal walk! That should certainly wear them out for our final night at the farm. 

Tonight we are hosting 'St Peter's Got Talent'. I'm sure we will have many fabulous acts and great difficulty choosing the winner! 

Good night all! 

 

 

 

 

Day Two – Treginnis Farm

Another wonderful day on the farm. We got up early and started farm work straight away at 7:30am! Although they were half asleep, the children did a great job feeding the animals before coming back to have our own breakfast. Next, the children were out on the farm all busy: cleaning out pens; feeding animals; taking donkeys for a walk and log sawing.

For lunch, we had a delicious bowl of Treginnis soup with homemade bread. The children had the chance to buy some souvenirs from the farm shop; some children even bought some farm eggs to bring home. After the children had some free time playing outside, we did our final farm jobs. We had sausage and mash for dinner and Ned had a big birthday cake to celebrate. Group C had the final job of feeding the farm animals before going to bed.  

Overall, we had a brilliant day on the farm and we can’t wait for day three! 

We took so many photos we had to upload two galleries! Enjoy the photos! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day One – Treginnis Farm:

We made excellent time on our way to the farm and arrived around 2pm. We had a warm welcome with orange juice and fruit. As we arrived nice and early, we were sent straight out onto the farm to help collect potatoes. Year 6 did a thorough job of collecting the potatoes ready to be sold in the market in St David’s.

After this, we watched the sun set while walking around the farm. For dinner, we had delicious jacket potatoes with baked beans and cheese. Even the children who didn’t particularly like jacket potatoes said they were the best potatoes they had ever eaten! For pudding we had homemade flapjacks.

Group A (Miss Mee’s group) then went out onto the farm again to feed the goats. We learnt more about the goats and got their pens ready for the night laying out the straw and hay. Some very lucky children even managed to have a go at milking the goats although we didn’t manage to collect very much!

The rest of the groups had a relaxing time playing board games in the toasty lounge. They all got showered and ready for bed and then had a hot chocolate while reading their books. After a tiring journey and beginning of farm trip, the children settled down fairly quickly!  

 

 

 

 

29th November

Dear all,

The children are bursting with excitement for Monday! They all received their hoodies today - make sure they go straight into their bags for Monday. No homework this weekend; I know the children are going to be far to busy packing and getting ready. 

A few reminders:

- Please arrive promptly at 7am.

- Any medication is put in a named bag and brought to school on Monday morning and given to Miss Bell directly. 

- Packed lunch for day one separate to the suitcase and in a bag to throw away (no extra snacks please - there will be plenty of food available at the farm).

- Ensure children have their wellies. 

- Very, very, very warm clothing (layers are good) and wellies (warm socks are vital).

- Bath towel, toiletries etc.

- No electronics please.

- Children must bring a reading book. 

 

Still a busy week for the children. In English, they completed their persuasive texts about anti-bullying which really showed their maturity and understanding of the issue of bullying. In Maths, they enjoyed using the bubble method to find percentages of amounts. In RE, we analysed Christmas adverts and thought about whether they showed the true meaning of Christmas. In Science, we recapped food groups and the importance of regular exercise. With Mrs Fox, the children continued researching their travel route through the Americas focusing on the climate and they also looked at working together effectively in PHSE.

I was amazed at the Year 6 talent during the Music Assembly on Thursday. Well done for everyone who shared their wonderful talents! 

Highlight of the week for the Year 6s was their buddy trip to Ravenscourt Park. Mrs Noonan was thoroughly impressed with how well the Year 6s worked with the reception children. Well done!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember the Christmas Fair is tomorrow from 2pm -6pm. Hope to see you there!

Miss Mee

22nd November 

Dear all, 

We have just one more week to go! One more week until the farm! I certainly cannot wait and I know that lots of Year 6 can't either.  We're going to have the most amazing time.

But in the meantime, we've been doing lots and lots of learning.

In Maths this week, we've been learning all about area and perimeter and applying our understanding to some very tricky problems.  Year 6 have really impressed - we just need to keep practising that long multiplication, particularly with decimals! In English,  we have finally finished our War Stories and they are simply amazing.

In RE, we've started looking at....Christmas! We've been exploring how Christmas is portrayed in the media, and have looked particularly at advent calendars this week.  As lovely as advent calendars filled with toys, or nail polishes are, we've decided that they don't really convey the true meaning of the season and we've evaluated lots of different Advent Calendars. In Science, we demonstrated how the circulatory system works and found out about the different blood cells and their functions. 

Yesterday, we had fun during our Environmental day where they had four interesting workshops in their house groups. On Friday, we had another visit from the Bog Pants Theatre who gave another great performance about recycling, reusing and reducing. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Wednesday, we visited the pantomime and had a terrible time. Oh no we didn't! We had a great time - it was hilarious.

Next week, we are going on a Stickman adventure with our buddies on Tuesday and we can't wait.

Have a really lovely weekend and see you all Monday,

Miss Mee

15th November

Dear all, 

We've had anti-bullying week, diabetes awareness day and children in need day so all in all, a very busy week. Thank you for all your donations to worthy causes. 

In English, the children have begun writing their historical narratives about a soldier going to war. I have been amazed at their plans so far and I'm looking forward to reading their finished pieces next week. In Maths, we have been converting measures both metric and imperial. Later on during the week, we focussed on time word problems and timetables. 

We had two interesting workshops this week: a computing workshop and an anti-bullying workshop. In Science, we conducted an investigation to solve a murder by looking at pulse rates. We drew line graphs to represent each person in the investigation. In humanities, the children continued planning their route through the Americas and learnt about the climates zones in their chosen locations. In RE, the children learnt about how different religions teach the message of peace. Some children even wrote a discussion text about whether Peace is taught in all religions. In Art, we finished our watercolour tree pieces; they looked beautiful. 

A few reminders...

- Forms and pocket money for Treginnis Farm must be in by Monday.

- We are going to the Lyric Theatre on Wednesday morning.

- Environmental day on Thursday - please bring in toilet rolls, wrapping paper and old card if possible by Wednesday.

- Friday - One Tree Day - children can wear something green and donate a pound to plant a tree. 

- Mathletics competition is starting on Monday. Please encourage the children to log in over the course of the week to win points for the school. 

- Library books that are overdue please be returned ASAP. 

Hope you all have a good weekend, 

Miss Mee 

8th November

Dear all, 

A huge congratulations to Year 6 for their amazing performance in their class assembly. They did a fantastic job and everyone was amazed with their beautiful singing. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alongside preparing for the class assembly, Year 6 have been busy working hard as usual. In English, the children have been writing letters in role as a soldier during WW1. They have thought about how the soldiers might more positive when writing home to family. In Maths, the children have been challenging themselves with long division. In humanities, the children have continued planning their route of the Americas and learnt about longitude and latitude points. 

DT day

On Wednesday, we had our first DT day of the year. This term it was Nature Day and the children made bat boxes. They researched where bats live in London and how we should camouflage the boxes. They did a great job at designing and decorating the boxes. 

A few reminders...

Monday 6pm - Treginnis Farm meeting 
Thursday - Diabetes Day - dress up as heroes 
Friday - Children in Need Day - own clothes day 
30th November - Christmas Fair 
- Homework - the children have been asked to use TT rockstars to complete their weekly tasks. They have got their passwords in their homework folders just in case they lost them. English and Maths homework due Monday and Reading records need to be in Monday too. 

 Have a great weekend, 

Miss Mee 

1st November

Dear all,
Our first week back after half term has been busy as usual! The highlight of our week was definitely seeing the Year 6s perform ‘The Highwayman’ at the poetry recital. They did so well learning and performing their parts in the poem. Well done Year 6 - we were very proud of you.

In English this week, we have started reading ‘War Horse’ and have thought about how soldiers and soldier’s families would feel throughout the war. Next week, we will write a letter home from a soldier at war. In maths, we have been focusing on co-ordinates, particularly finding missing co-ordinates on unmarked axis. We have also been practising our bus stop division giving the answers as remainders, fractions and decimals. Next week, we will be learning long division by two digit numbers. 

In Science, we introduced our new topic of animals including humans. We revised what they have already learned about the circulatory system and defined the functions of the heart, lungs and blood vessels. In RE, we wrote remembrance poems ready for our class assembly on Thursday. In humanities, Mrs Fox introduced the new topic of longitude and latitude and the Americans. 

A few reminders...
- Our class assembly is on Thursday. The children need to learn all their lines over the weekend and have a go at practising their song ‘A Wish for Peace’.

- Parents evening on Monday and Tuesday. I’m looking forward to meeting with you all and discussing your child’s progress so far.
- Poppies are on sell in school from Monday so children can bring in some money to buy a poppy if they wish. 
- Dates coming up: 
11th November - Treginnis Farm meeting 
14th November - Diabetes Day - dress up as heroes 
15th November - Children in Need Day - own clothes day 
30th November - Christmas Fair 
I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend.
Miss Mee

 

 

18th October 

Dear all, 

What a half term! Year 6 have produced fantastic work over the course of this half term and they should be very proud of themselves. They have also worked hard at improving their listening skills and behaviour both inside and outside the classroom. I have been thoroughly impressed at their improvements and I can't wait to see even more next half term! 

This week, we celebrated Black History Month. We had lots of interesting workshops throughout the week including: a Jazz assembly; give racism a red card workshop and a drama workshop around influential black people throughout history up to today. I was impressed with Year 6's maturity throughout these workshops and I hope everyone gained a lot from this week. 

We also had a busy week completing their assessments. They all worked extremely hard and had their first experience of SATS tests! 

In English this week, we researched, planned and wrote a non-chronological report about the Windrush. I was very extremely impressed with the high-quality writing everyone produced; the reports were thoughtful and articulate. In Maths, we completed our assessments and then focussed on angles within triangles, quadrilaterals, straight lines and around a point. 

In RE, we finished our unit on Sikhism by reading some Sikh stories about the Guru Nanak and learning about what makes a good leader. In history, we researched influential black athletes and the children made powerpoint presentations about them. 

A few reminders...

Half Term Homework: 

The children have been given a poem to learn over the half term. The Year 6 poem is the Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. We had given out verses to learn as it is a very long poem. The children need to know their part off-by-heart by the Monday. The children also have some angle homework to complete. They have been give a 'Maths Vocabulary' booklet which they can use to help. The 'Maths Vocabulary' booklet has everything that is on the Year 6 curriculum so please get children to look over. They must also bring in their reading records first day back with at least 8 entries. 

They also have Christmas cards to design over the half term. I can't wait to see some lovely designs. 

Art Competition:

The Art Ambassadors are running an ‘Art Competition’ for the whole school to promote art and to celebrate the amazing talents we have in our school. To enter the competition please make a piece of art based on the theme ‘Fantasy’ on an A4 piece of paper. Please write your name and year group on the back of your artwork. All entries must be given to an Art Ambassador or Mrs Noonan by Tuesday 29th October. There are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 and the winning pieces of work will be displayed in the Art Room for everyone to see.

 

11th October 

Dear all, 

Another packed week in Year 6. The highlight of this week was attending Primary Proms at the Royal Albert Hall. What an amazing experience! Some children didn’t join us as they were busy representing St Peters in cross country! Well done everyone who took part.

 

In English, the children completed their nonsense narratives and I enjoyed reading some humorous stories! In Maths, we have been focussing on turning fractions into decimals and long multiplication including decimals. We enjoyed completing our investigation into the length of wires in Science and seeing whether our predictions were true.

In RE, we’ve learnt all about why the Amrit Ceremony is so important for Sikhs.  And I think the other highlight of the week was the Greek Olympics which Mrs Fox hosted on Thursday.  I think the pictures speak for themselves!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Art, we started having a go at drawing tree trunks and using watercolours effectively. I'm looking forward to seeing what they can produce next week. 

Next week, we will be celebrating Back History week and we have lots of interesting workshops taking place. In English, we will be learning about the Windrush Generation and writing non-chronological reports by the end of week. 

The children have also taken a letter home about their TTrockstars account. Year 6 have had a head start with this but I would like to see more children using this over the weekend. 

I hope you have an enjoyable weekend, 

Miss Mee 

4th October 

 

Dear all,

We’ve had yet another fun week in Year 6! In English, we’ve had a lot of fun planning nonsense narratives’ based upon the Walrus and the Carpenter. We’ve had all sorts of weird and wacky characters in them. We’ve been making sure our punctuation of dialogue is perfect, and have learnt how to include action clauses into our speech.   We’ve also had even more fun, ok well maybe not quite as much, in maths learning about fractions! We can do all sorts of calculations with them now. 

In Humanities this week, we have learnt all about the Ancient Greek Olympics. A letter has been sent home this week asking if the children could please bring in a bed sheet/Ancient Greece costume on Thursday to re-enact the Olympics.  Watch this space for photos!  We’ve also been learning to conduct investigations about electricity in Science, and have learnt all about a Gurdwara (Sikh place of worship) in RE and how this place of worship reflects Sikh values.

Thanks, 

Miss Mee

27th September

Dear all,

Thanks to everyone who donated cakes and helped during and after for our Macmillan Coffee and Cake afternoon! So many wonderful and generous donations! 

Our Macmillan afternoon went brilliant and the Year 6s should be proud of all the money they helped raise.

We've been working hard in Maths this week looking at comparing and ordering fractions and adding and subtracting fractions. We will move onto multiplying and dividing fractions next week. I'm sure the Year 6s can't wait! We finished off and edited our biographies about a famous person and I thoroughly enjoyed reading who they chose and why! In Science, they had a go at drawing and constructing simple circuits. In R.E. they wrote a newspaper report about the Sikh festival of Vaisakhi. With Mrs Fox, they looked at how school was during Ancient Greek times compared to school today. 

A few reminders... 

Homework due on Monday. The children have taken home a copy of the 'The Walrus and the Carpenter' poem to read through and rehearse a verse. We will be studying this poem in English next week so it would be good for them to get acquainted with it over the weekend. They also have a small comprehension around the poem to get a better understanding of it. The Maths homework is adding and subtracting fractions. Reading records are also due on Monday!

Have a good weekend, 

Miss Mee 

20th September

Dear all, 

It's been a very busy week in Year 6! We've been working hard in all lessons and I've been thoroughly impressed with their Roald Dahl biographies. They have spent the week researching, planning, writing, editing and publishing their biographies and they have been a pleasure to read. I'm excited to read their biographies about their own famous person next week. 

In Maths, we have been working on addition and subtraction and particularly focusing on worded problems. Next week, we will be starting working on adding, subtracting, comparing and simplifying fractions. 

In Science this week, we got out all the electricity equipment and had a go at making simple circuits with cells, bulbs and motors. The children learnt how to make the bulb brighter and what will happen if you add too many components to the circuit. In RE, we’ve been learning about symbolism in Sikhism and why the 5 ‘Ks’ are worn by Sikhs - the symbolism and importance is very interesting. In our Ancient Greece topic, we have had fun researching Ancient Greek life. 

A few reminders...

 Year Six will be hosting a ‘Coffee and Catch Up’ afternoon next Friday (27th September) in order to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.They have chosen the theme of 'bright colours' in order to cheer up your day. From 14:30  3:15 we welcome you to the Scott building. A perfect opportunity to raise money for a worthy cause, catch up with friends and enjoy some cake and a hot drink. Ensure you bring along some change. All money raised will go to Macmillan. Any cake left over will be sold after school, allowing the children to join in with the fundraising too. Please donate a cake or two by delivering to the Scott building on the morning of the event.

A few things to remember for Monday: weekend homework folders, reading records (which should have 5 entries per week) and P.E. kits. 

The children have been signed up to TTrockstars which is an online times table app. It is great fun and the children have received their log ins today. A letter will come soon to explain how to use this most effectively but they can have a go at the weekend if they want to! I can't wait to see the leader board on Monday!

Bike to School Week

Bike to School Week is a week-long (23rd- 27th September 2019) event designed to showcase the benefits of cycling to school across the UK.

Bike to School Week is a great opportunity to promote the positive impact that an active lifestyle can have on pupils' well-being and health. It's free, there's no need to register, and it's a fantastic way to get warmed up ready for Sustrans Big Pedal in the spring.

During Bike to School Week we ask teachers to encourage pupils, parents and staff to cycle to school.

To win, Sustrans invite you to download the free 'Guide to walking, cycling and scooting to school' and to take part in the photo competition; click the link below for more information.

Have a lovely, relaxing weekend,

Miss Mee

 

First Full Week: 

Our first week back has been action packed! It was great seeing so many parents come for our open evening to see our classroom. If you couldn't make it, don't worry every child should have taken home their pack with all the information. Any questions please ask me or email. 

In English this week we have been reading 'Boy' by Roald Dahl and learning all about his life ready to write our biographies next week. The children have found out lots of interesting facts already. As a weekend homework, the children have been asked to choose a famous person to research ready for writing another biography later next week. I can't wait to hear who they have researched! In Maths, we have been looking at place value, rounding and negative numbers. Any extra practise at home would be fantastic! The children also took part in a street dance workshop. There were definitely some good movers in Year 6!

House Captains: 

I was so proud of all the Year 6s getting up in front of the entire school to deliver their House Captain speech on Thursday. What a difficult choice the school had! 

The results were in on Friday:  

Rock: Izabele and Jayden

Fisher: Eduardo and Teagan 

Keys: Maia and Nathan

Cross: Maddy and William 

We also found out that our School Councillors are: 

Jessica and Charlie 

Well done to everyone and don't forget we still need to vote for Eco, Art and RE ambassadors. 

Our Buddies: 

A highlight for many children in Year 6 was meeting their new reception buddies! They had their first buddy reading session and the Year 6s were fantastic!

I hope you all have a good weekend and see you all bright and fresh next week. 

Miss Mee

 

 

Welcome Back! 

 

Our teacher is Miss Mee and our teaching assistants are Miss Bell and Mrs Isaac.  

Year 6 have had a wonderful start into the year. I've really enjoyed getting to know every member of the class these past three days and I'm looking forward to seeing more fantastic work next week. Now Year 6 are top of the school, they are taking on more and more responsibilities. This week they have shown that they can be great role models to the rest of the school and they should be really proud of themselves. 

 

Library Monitors:

Our brand new library has been set up and Year 6 were able to apply for a role of a librarian. I was overwhelmed with the amount of children wanting to give up their lunchtimes to be a librarian this year! Mrs Zalar held interviews on Thursday and had an extremely hard job choosing out of all the applicants. Well done for all the children who have successfully become a school librarian! 

 

House Captains: 

Another responsibility special to Year 6 is being a House Captain.  Today, the children were all given homework to write a speech explaining why they should lead their house.  On Thursday, the children will be delivering their speeches in assembly and the school will be voting for who they want to represent.  I’m looking forward to hearing what they come up with!

A few reminders...

The children have been given their reading records and have taken home both a class book and a brand new library book. It is expected that the children make 5 entries per week. These entries can be adults at home listening to them read or the children themselves making comments. The children need to bring their reading record in every Monday to be checked. This Monday, I'm only expecting 3 entries as it hasn't been a full week yet! 

We have our first PE lesson on Monday so the children need to ensure they bring in their full PE kit. 

Next Thursday, we are holding our open evening from 5pm-6pm where you will be able to come into the classroom, have a look around and ask any questions. 

I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend, 

Miss Mee

Next Thursday, we are holding our open evening from 5pm-6pm where you will be able to come into the classroom, have a look around and ask any questions. 

I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend, 

Miss Mee
