Dear Parents,

It's been lovely to welcome the children back this week.  They've been full of lovely family stories and are so excited to be back in school.

During RE this week we have begun learning about the sacrament of reconciliation.  The children talked about the times when they have done something wrong and what they did to put it right.  They spoke confidently and respectively and it really was a worthwhile session. During collective worship this week the children planned a really thoughtful session around how it feels to love God - I was really impressed with the way they presented.

During maths this week the children really blew me away with their accuracy and fluency with times tables.  We looked at the eight times tables and the division that goes with it.  The children then went on to using those skills to solve multiplication and division problems.  

Times Tables Rockstars HAS had a HUGE impact on this week's maths and I'm truly thankful to the children and you all for helping and encouraging them to complete the work. Please keep it up!

During PE this week the children continued their gymnastics routine and have really enjoyed the challenge of putting together a routine brings.  We'll continue the next steps this week.

We started our Roman topic well this week by looking at some of the artifacts and the books we've had delivered from the library. The children loved exploring the books and finding out facts and information to share.  We even had one child bring in some Roman coins from a visit to Chester.  If you have any Roman facts or books then please let us know. we'd love to learn more about it.  

The children worked with Mrs Nixon this week to track the invasion of the Roman army across Europe.  It was a fascinating session with the children excited about how far they travelled.  

We have started 'Escape to Pompeii' and the children have enjoyed the story and thinking about what it would have been like to be in that dreadful situation.  This week we will be starting to look at how the story was written and how we could turn it into a newspaper report.  It's an exciting week!

Thank you again for all your support with reading, spelling and homework and everything else you do for your children.  Please keep encouraging them to read and to please read with them - it's so important to get back into those habits again in the New Year.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mr Chris Waterworth
