Summer Term

naylorn on: Elm Class

It is nearly the start of the Summer Term.

I am sure there are a lot of emotions, but we are on our countdown to SATs now and I hope the children have had a well deserved rest!

If there are any questions over the next few weeks please let me know.

Towards the end of half term you will receive more information about PGL and our end of year play! I am sure the children are really excited about these up coming events. Please be patient and details will be sent to you when they are ready. 

I hope you have all had a fantastic break and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday. 

Mrs Harding

PS I have attached a picture of St Patrick's Day - Mrs Aldwinkle challenged the children to line up in 'shade' order! Enjoy!

Is it Spring yet?

naylorn on: Elm Class

I hope you have enjoyed the snow, making the most of family time (though hopefully over now, I much prefer the sun!)

Homework has been set for the week using SATs companion, so encourage your child to complete this, some children still have last weeks homework to complete. 

Last half term, year 6 had the best overall attendance in KS2; we have won a non-uniform day, I will let you know the date shortly.

Over the next few weeks, we will be having SATs practises in the hall, this is to allow the children to get an idea of how SATs week will run and hopefully tackle any worries that the children (and you ) may have. Any questions get in touch!

We are hoping to reschedule bike training, again we will let you know if this has been possible. 

Next week is another busy one: Wednesday is a history day, linking to world war I; Thursday is International Women's Day and Friday is our newly arranged World Book Day. 

Have a great weekend and stay safe.

Writers, mathematicians and scientists.

naylorn on: Elm Class

This week, the children have made volcanoes erupt and cyclones in a bottle - the classroom was buzzing with excitement. 

We have completed our last piece of information writing on volcanoes and are moving onto diary writing next week. 

In maths, we have been rounding decimals and solving word problems. 

Valentines Fair is on the 8th of February - make sure those letters of permission are returned. 

Parent's Evening soon as well - please make an appointment. 

Last but not least - your children received a letter about SATs companion today, please take a look as this is how we will be setting tasks and homework based on grammar and maths.

Have a great weekend
