Dear Parents,

Well, what a week!  And what an ending to the week. I'm feeling very proud and I hope you all are too.  The children really did you all proud on Friday morning, not only with a superb performance, gorgeous singing, but showing so much respect throughout. I was left feeling so very proud of each and every one of our children.  Thank you so much for joining us and being part of this time of year.

Mr Plant also shared with us stories about his Grandad when he was in World War 1 and told us why he was so proud of him.  The children learned about all the different people who were involved in the war, not just soldiers, but doctors, nurses, factory workers and many more - we all said thank you.

We began learning about Mary, Mother of God during RE this week and thinking about how she felt during the annunciation.  We thought about ourselves and how it feels when you're chosen to do something important - it's a good one to think about yourself.

During English this week we started our Stone Age learning journey by reading Stone Age boy and spending time writing expanded noun phrases to help us describe what we were seeing.  The children will be looking further into the story this week and performing some drama taking on the role of some of the characters.

We loved the challenge of maths this week and I was extremely happy with how the children approached the challenges.  They worked so hard, never giving up and then wrote down how they solved the problems they were solving. 

In times table's news... I gave out a record number of certificates this week! The children are clearly learning them at home and enjoying the feeling of achievement when they beat their personal best.  Please keep encouraging them to learn their tables.  

Everyone learned their spellings this week with some children recording their highest scores of the year - another proud moment this week!  It's really been one of those proud weeks! 

This week we will be learning all about Stone Age cave paintings and why they were so important in finding out how we used to live.  We will also be starting to learn about forces and how they affect the world around us.  Another exciting science week coming up.

We had an amazing assembly on Thursday from Mad Science.  We will be running a club after Christmas.  The children should have brought a letter home on Friday with all the details you need to register your children for the club.  

Homework came home on Friday and the children were excited to get the first one of the half term.  Homework will continue to be given out on Friday's and due in the following Wednesday.  

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Kind regards,

Mr Chris Waterworth
