The highlight of this week, as well as England getting through to the Finals, has to be the wonderful sports morning we had and that the weather was kind to us!
On Wednesday morning, Mrs MacIntyre and Mr Davis organised another amazing sports day where we competed individually and also as teams in our houses. The children all tried their best in their individual events and as part of a team. They demonstrated the sports values and should be very proud of what they achieved. There was lots of cheering, some laughter (fancy dress team event) and smiles. A huge thank you to the children and an even bigger thank you to Mrs MacIntyre and Mr Davis.
In English this week, we have been writing our own newspaper reports linked to our story, The Mousehole Cat. We have focused on a different feature each day and have used our phonics work on suffixes and prefixes. The children should be very proud of their reports; they worked really hard!
In Maths, the children have continued to look at time and the language associated with it. They have been looking at half past and comparing times, using key language such as ‘earlier’ and ‘later’.
In Science, we had great fun investigating the best material for an umbrella. We enjoyed being scientists, predicting which materials would be waterproof/absorbent and writing up our results afterwards.
BUG CLUB NEEDS YOU!
Bug Club is a really good reading platform but we can see that not many of the children are using it. Please try and help your child access this at least a couple of times each week. If you are having any problems accessing it please let us know.
We hope you’re still getting out to add to our Street Tag score, despite the less than desirable weather! Thank you for taking part.
SNACKS: These should be healthy; a piece of fruit or cereal bar.
FOOTWEAR: Children should wear SCHOOL SHOES on the days that they don’t do PE, which will be three days of the week. On PE days children are allowed to wear trainers.
PE kit days: Wednesday and Thursday

Please remember to reinforce the correct pencil grip at home; the correct letter and number formation.
This video shows how the children are taught in Foundation using the Read Write Inc scheme but please note that we use a ‘curly’ k and the ‘f’ has a longer tail that carries on below the line.
