English and Maths information:

In English we are writing Christmas stories for Year 1 and hopefully next week we will get a chance to read our finished stories to the younger children. To get inspired for our story writing, we spent some time in the Library to research what kind of books would suit our audience. This was a lovely learning activity which the children all enjoyed.

This week in Maths, we are reviewing our recent test papers to celebrate all the positives and to work on our target areas.

Other curriculum news:

We are busy preparing for our Candlelight Carol Service which will be on Monday 18th December at 7pm in the church.

General Information:

Children in Y5 & 6 need to be in school by 6.40pm on Monday 18th December ready for their Candlelight Carol service, when the Church door will be open ready for parents to enter. Year 6 will come in via the Year 6 entrance and Year 5 through the children’s entrance. All children in these year groups will take part in the service.

Although there are no tickets for the candlelight service, there is only room in church for 2 adults per family. Please do not bring young children to the service.

Collection: The service should finish at around 8:15 p.m. Parents/carers please collect your children from the same place they came in. i.e. Year 6 from the Year 6 entrance and Year 5 from the children’s entrance. We hope you will then be able to stay and join us for refreshments in the school hall.

PE – indoor will be on Wednesdays, outdoor on Tuesdays. Please bring a full kit as we are likely to go in some pretty chilly and damp weather over the course of the Winter.

MyMaths tasks must all be completed before the end of  term.

Any questions, please do catch us in the playground.
