Everyone has worked so hard at their writing this week their hand might fall off! Today they have written their own story based on a picture.
It was great to see so many of you at Parents’ Evening, I’m sure you enjoyed looking at your child’s books.
Next week is Assessment Week so we still have lots more to do before we break up for Easter. This will be good practice for the End of Key Stage 1 SATs in May.
Have a great weekend,
This week we have had fun with animal poems and learnt about how words are used to make the poem exciting. In maths we have been learning about weight and weighing. We know the meaning of the words; heavier, lighter and equal. In art and computing we have made our own Plasticine penguins ready for our short animations. Please can your child bring in a shoe box to make their animation scene.
Family Learning are offering a new course for parents and children in Beech and Chestnut class.

Hello! We have had a super week completing our science. We have focussed on the Moon. The children have enjoyed carrying out investigations on samples from the moon. They have also studied changes the Earth goes through at this time of year: we have payed particular attention to daffodils: the parts of a flower, how insects help flowers reproduce and also how the flower receives water and nutrients from the soil.
The children continue to try to learn their tables: the following website is great fun. It is a bit like “Whack a rat!” but with aliens and times tables…
Have a go… it’s great fun.
Thank you to all of you who came to parent evening: it was great to be able to share with you what your children are achieving. The main comments were about homework and reading. The children know what homework they have: they have a timetable for spellings, tables, maths challenges and research for theme work. They also know that they should read every evening and record this in their diaries. It is essential training for next year and also secondary, otherwise they will have a huge shock. I appreciate any support you can give your child in both of these areas. If you could help them by providing a quiet place for them to read and complete their homework that would be very helpful. Thank you.
Meanwhile, let’s hope this Spring-like weather continues. Have a super weekend. Mrs.P.X

You have the right to choose your own religion and beliefs. Your parents should help you decide what is right and wrong, and what is best for you.
It was great to meet so many of you at Parents Evening this week, it has been wonderful sharing your children’s progress and hard work with you! A huge thank you for your continued support.
In maths we have been converting measurements in our maths- the children have done really well with this, converting cm into m and mm in cm. In literacy we have continued our learning about play scripts, this week we created and wrote our own play scripts which included all the featured we have been learning about.
This week the children took part in a PE session with members of Shrewsbury Town Football club they were able to asked the footballers questions about their careers.
I hope you enjoy your weekend,
It was great to meet you all again at Parent’s Evening. Your children are working so hard and I appreciate their efforts and your support. In six school weeks we will have completed SATs and your child will be in Arthog! After SATs we can afford to relax a little and I will do my upmost to ensure your child has a fantastic final term at Primary school.
In maths, we have looked at measures: we have estimated, converted and concentrated on both metric and Imperial measurements. The focus has been on grammar and punctuation in Literacy and we have revised the usage of commas, semi-colons and bullet points.
If I haven’t had chance to catch up and report on your child’s progress please contact the office and they will arrange a time for you to come in to see me. Have a super weekend.
It’s been really nice to meet with you all again this week for Parents’ Evening. It has been a great opportunity to show you all how much, as a class, we have improved and how hard we are working.
On Tuesday, we had five members of Shrewsbury Town FC come and join our PE lesson. We played lots of mini games and got to ask them lots of questions about being a professional footballer. At the end of the session, most of the children managed to get an autograph or two from them!
Our play is very nearly upon us! Letters have been sent out about when our performances will be. We hope to see as many of you as we can. The children have been wonderful during rehearsals.
Spellings will be given out today and tested on Thursday. PE will be as normal next week so PE kits need to be in school on Thursday. We are continuing with our Daily Mile and lots of the children are improving with their personal challenges so well done to all.
Have an enjoyable weekend!
Mrs Brunyard, Mrs Martin and Miss Harris
