WB 01.10.2018

The start to this week was a very active one with the children taking part in a House fitness afternoon on Monday. The children did brilliantly and collected lots of points for their Houses.

Thank you to all those who have sent in photos for the children's autobiographies. The children have been working very hard on them and you will have an opportunity to see the final products during parents evening. Next week we start our new topic looking at fables.

The children have really enjoyed beginning french lessons and Mrs Luckhurst has been thrilled with the level of enthusiasm shown by the class. We have also enjoyed visiting the new music room for our music lessons and enjoying the opportunity that the space provides for them to be creative. Some of the children have been really keen to share the music they are learning outside school. It is wonderful that they are eager to share their music with others and we are therefore creating a rota that will allow 1 or 2 children each lesson the opportunity to perform to the rest of the class.

Today we finished our RE topic looking at families and homes. The children have spent time thinking about what makes a house a home, have read passages from the Bible written by St Paul and the advice he gave families, as well as reflecting on the Holy family and how they gave us a wonderful example of an ideal family. Next week we will begin our new topic 'promises'.

Next Wednesday the children are making fruit salad in DT. Please remember to send in the 2 fruits that your child needs to bring in.

On a final note, most children have been very good at remembering to bring in their homework in on time. Just a reminder that reading planners should be in school every day, not just on their book changing day, and that homework is due in every Tuesday. Thank you for your support with this.

Have a good weekend!
