Please could you also encourage your child to practise spelling their full names (first name, surname) at home, with capital letters in the right places.

Maths and English Information:

In maths this week the children will be revisiting multiplication and division, by using a variety of methods to help consolidate their understanding, such as the use of practical resources and visuals, before moving on to more formal written methods.

In English the children will be continuing to learn about poetry, by looking at some poetry about World War 1, which will help inspire them to write their own poems.

Other curriculum news:  

Project: Next week the children will be taking part in a variety of workshops where they will learn about World War 1 through drama, art and PE (military training!) These workshops will give them the opportunity to learn more about life in World War 1 and further enhance their understanding of this momentous period in time. The children will be making poppies which will form part of a whole school art installation, to be displayed in the hall.

General Information:

CHRISTMAS PRODUCTION: We have been busily preparing for the Christmas production, which will be performed on 17th December at 1:30pm and 6pm. Your child will be given some song words to learn, so please encourage them to get practising at home. If your child has lines in the production, please help them rehearse at home. They will need to learn both their lines and their cues.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Indoor PE will be on a Monday morning and games will be on a Wednesday afternoon. Please remind your child to bring in their PE kit on a Monday and Wednesday, particularly if they do an after school sporting club and they take their kit home, as it can be difficult for us to find spare kit. Please could you also make sure your child has weather appropriate PE kit in school every day and that it is clearly named so it doesn’t go missing.

Please continue to ensure your child brings in a named water bottle, daily (with water only in, no juice).
