The children have worked incredibly hard this week completing end of term assessments. It has been a new experience for them and I’m very proud of how they all handled them.
We have talked a lot about making sure they take their time to read questions properly and that they look carefully at signs in maths questions to ensure they are using the correct operation. We will continue to practice these skills next term.
We have almost completed the Pied Piper of Hamelin book – we will read the final pages in English next week – and they independently wrote some super letters back to the Piper from the Mayor.
They have almost completed their History unit on The Great Fire of London and this week we were learning about the rebuild of the capital city by Christopher Wren. They pretended to be residents, thinking what questions they would ask King Charles II, and then drew some designs for rebuilding London talking about what they would change and why.
in D&T we’ve spent some time exploring how to make supports and use different joining techniques. They then created their designs with a partner ready for building next week. If you do have any cardboard boxes we would really appreciate it if you could please send them in to school at the beginning of the week. Thank you!

I hope you all had a great time at the Christmas Fayre. It was lovely to see so many of you there.

This week there are some exciting things going on – the church service at the Baptist Church on Wednesday 13th and Christmas dinner and jumper day on Thursday 14th. From Thursday children can wear something ‘Christmassy’ until the end of term (Wednesday 20th).

We will still have PE on Tuesday and Thursday as normal – apologies for the confusion with my typo last week!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend  Please remember to read read read!! ☺️
