The end of term!
Thank you so much for all the lovely gifts and presents, they were completely overwhelming! You were all so generous and thoughtful, there will be no end of treats for the holidays. We shall try to space them out.
It has been a pleasure to teach everyone of the children. We hope that you have a good holiday, fingers crossed that we will continue to have some good weather.
As every teacher will tell you it is important to do a bit of work in the holidays, a little bit every day, don't leave it to the end of the holiday. It is really noticeable, families who continuously help and support their children will make better progress, however, tricky they find learning. Pop down the library, they have their holiday reading going on as usual. Make sure you keep working on your spellings, they are in your homework folder. Perhaps keep a holiday diary. Have a lovely holiday, see you in September.
Mrs Streader and Miss Cook
Class priorities - Miss Roberts is working on handwriting with us and she be giving advice on how to improve handwriting. We have a whole list of children on our board who are really close, keep practising! We are really focusing on presentation, particularly on using joined up writing. It is really noticeable the improvement in our handwriting, we work on it everyday. Recently I have heard that some children are practising their handwriting at home. They need to have consistently neat and joined handwriting. Well done to Matilda and Ellie for gaining their handwriting badges
Well done to Chloe and Poppy for getting their 100% badges. Lots of children are working really hard at home to improve their times tables and division. At parents' evening we heard again and again of children trying their best to memorise their tables. Tables are really important. The New National Curriculum has lots of Fraction and Decimal work and this is so much easier if you know your tables. Our 100% children have told us that to get their badges they really focused, practising over and over. We always have spare sheets, children who are close to 100% often take these to practise at home. We are now doing our 100% test on a Thursday. .
Marathon Day and Alternative Sports
Marathon Day was great fun, the whole of the school took part. Some of year 4 went to alternative sports at Longshaw.
We have been having a fun time making Roman peg dolls, shields and helmets.
We have been working our aiming skills and have had a go at curling. Thank you Pam for your help. Great fun!
Challenge! Can you say the name of the colour the writing is written in? So yellow is actually green.
So get yourself a coffee and start searching through our class pages. I hope you really enjoy seeing what we have been doing this term in our class.
