This week we are looking forward to our Daily Mile challenge on Thursday at Kings Park.  Please make sure your child has their outdoor PE kit on that day.

***Could all children please bring a small stone into school for Thursday afternoon to be used in the church for our Hopes and Dreams workshop in the church***

English and Maths information:

This week we will be carrying out mini assessments in writing, maths and spelling.  These will help to inform our assessment and planning.

In English, we will be continuing our film narrative work.  The children have been set a 4 week task; to create their own film including characters, settings and an extract of script based on The Croods.  This week the children will be writing part of their script.

They will also begin to create their film pack which will have all their hard work within it.

Project outcome:  There will be a project outcome in the form of a museum in the year 5 classrooms on Monday 26th March from 2.30pm.

Reading:  The children need to remember to bring in their home/school book everyday.  Our library session is now every Wednesday which is a great opportunity for the children to change their library books and our newly refurbished library. The children will need to return their current book before taking out a new one.

PE: in the hall on a Monday and Tuesday.

Games: at Kings Park on a Tuesday.

This half term, the children will be taking part in Football and Hockey. Please ensure your children have their PE kits in school for these days. It is important that they come prepared with their full outdoor kit, to include; long, dark trousers, a sweatshirt and a spare pair of socks. It is useful to have a plastic carrier bag too, in case trainers get particularly wet or muddy in these winter months. Please see website link to uniform for further guidance on this.

A quick reminder too, that all children should have a water bottle in school.
