Summer is here! (apparently!?!)
The summer term is here and is going to be extremely busy. This term's topic overview is below.
Welcome to 2017!
Welcome back to the new term. 2017 is here - doesn't time fly.
This term our topic will focus on Earth and Space. Our topic overview for this term is below.
All done - what a lot of fun!
Thursday and Friday were fantastic. We participated in many fun activities, challenging ourselves and developing our collaborative skills. Some of our pictures are below: more will be put onto the windows for our viewing next week.
Thank-you to everyone who came along, children and adults; and thank-you to the adults who paid for the children to come along.
Enjoy the weekend!
Arrived, excited, enjoyed, slept: Here we go again!
After a very short journey we arrived at the centre. The children had time to settle into their surroundings before we had lunch. Then it was time for the first activities, either: crate stacking and climbing wall or low ropes and archery.
For tea we had fish fingers/ vegetable fingers with chips and peas, followed by sticky toffee pudding and custard - it was delicious!!
We then set off on our Night Hike through the forest before returning back to the centre for some well earned rest.
We hope everyone back at home and school is well, see you tomorrow!
How can you help your child at home?
3 things; 3 times (at least) weekly
Parents are a vital part on their children's education and can offer them so much. We also understand that lives are very busy. Therefore, rather than send home projects (which can be very time consuming) we believe that is best if you could help consolidate reading , spellings and maths: basic skills which will enable your child/ren to become successful learners. Of course any other homework (not set by the school) which they complete, I would be delighted to see it!!!!
*Read regularly with your child - please listen to them read aloud; share read a book; discuss the book; ask them questions. Many children by this age are able to read independently, however it is vital that they have regular opportunities to read aloud otherwise bad habits can occur such as skipping words. Even the most confident readers, when they do not regularly read aloud, can lose fluency.
*Help them to learn their spellings. Spellings will be regularly checked in school. The children will select words specifically for themselves. It is vital that they work on these at home as well as in school.
*Practise the skills in their ‘Maths Passport'. The Maths Passport is individually select depending on your child's current mental recall knowledge. To attain their passport certificate they must confidently (and rapidly) answer questions on their current targets
Thank you for your continued support.
