Dear children, Parents and Carers: our online safety teaching emphasises that internet use always comes with risks; it is all about what we do when we come across something online that worries or frightens you. Teachers have judged all the links here to lead to safe online learning, but not everything on the platforms (such as youtube) is safe of course. So parents, monitor your child’s online activity and if you are concerned about any content they access, report it via the CEOPS button on the safeguarding page or home page of our website. Children, do the same.

Have a go at Active Monopoly:

We hope you enjoy looking through our class page. It will be updated with photographs and news regularly, and you will find all the curriculum information you need on here.

HOMEWORK: Children should read, practise their spelling using the handwriting sheet and learn their tables every night. Maths arithmetic homework will be set on Fridays and be returned on Mondays ready to be reviewed in the Maths lesson. Handwriting sheets should be ready for checking on a Monday. Half-termly topic homework will be set based on the Knowledge Organisers for that half-term.

READING AWARDS: Reading awards assemblies are held at the end of each half term.  To earn a bronze certificate children need to read a minimum of five times each week. Platinum and Diamond Awards are awarded to children who go above and beyond and even read in the holidays! Children who receive a Diamond Award will receive a £1.00 book token to go towards a book from our school shop.Help class 11 to win the trophy and read lots at home!

PE: PE lessons take place twice a week usually on a Tuesday and Wednesday and the children regularly do the mile on our track. Please ensure indoor and outdoor PE kits are in school everyday. This half-term, Class 11 will enjoy Yoga sessions on Friday afternoons instead of the Tuesday lesson.

MUSIC: Class 11 are currently learning to play the flute. They are making great progress and are sounding superb.  Their lesson takes place on a Wednesday afternoon; therefore your child needs to have their flute in school every Wednesday to allow them to participate fully. 

Christmas Jumper Day 2019

Christmas Play.

A huge well done to all children who performed in the Christmas plays. You were superb. A special 'thank you' to the children (and therefore adults at home) who were able to come to all performances and gave the audiences their best.

Birchwood High School Performance

Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a morning trip to Birchwood High School to watch their performance of Aladdin. The high school students did a superb job and had our classes enraptured with their act. Our pupils made notes on the performance to enable them to write a review next week.

Meet the Teacher - Thank You!

A huge thank you to all parents who attended 'Meet the Teacher'. For those of you who couldn't attend, or would just like a recap of the information shared with you, the powerpoint from the afternoon is attached.

Please look out for details of our Year 6 SATs meeting coming up in March.

Thanks again!

Spellings

In addition to weekly spellings it is important for your child to practise the common exception words for their year group. We distribute these over each half term. Letters will be sent home with the spellings for this half term.

Reading Plus

Do continue to encourage the use of this at home. It is designed to improve reading fluency and comprehension as well as developing inference skills (which are vital skills for the SATs). Children can access this at home using their own log-in and it will contribute towards a reading award as long as it is signed by an adult in school planners.
