After the half term holiday, the children will be designing and making mirror mazes based on their Science topic of 'Mirror, Mirror'. The children will need to bring in a shoe box (the children are working in pairs so 15-16 boxes should be sufficient.) The other thing they will be making in Design and Technology is a chariot with a pnuematic system. If you could start to collect a box similar to the picture below, that would be fantastic! It needs to be a small yet sturdy cardboard box. A shoe box is too big!

Homework 14.02.20. We are sending homework out today due to us being on the school trip to Colchester Castle tomorrow. Complete the pages in the CGP books as usual but please remember to keep up the reading and times tables practise over the holiday! There will also be another note above this one as we need the children to bring in a couple of things after the holiday. See above for more information. I hope you have a lovely half term holiday.

A note from Mrs Mooney (just in case you didn't get a letter on Monday):

 

Parents/Carers,

In preparation for engineering morning next Tuesday, we are asking your child to come to school with an idea of a product they would like to invent and make. There are no rules for this and the best ideas always come from children as their imaginations are endless and have no practical limitations. If you could please encourage your child to come up with an idea of something to invent and draw a picture of it. The best ideas come from a problem, so the children have been asked to think of all the things that they observe or hear 'grumpy grown-ups' complaining about. Once they find a problem - can they think of an invention to solve the problem? It doesn't matter if you think it is not possible. The only things to avoid are things that already exist, so if your child comes up with something that already exists, can you encourage them to tweak their idea.

Thank you in advance.

Mrs Mooney.

Homework 07.02.20. Please find the homework attached. We would encourage the children to continue to revise the x7, x8 and x9 times tables again for this week. There are a couple of things to remember for the coming week: every child needs to bring in their reading book and purple reading record on Monday and it is engineering morning on Tuesday so ensure your child has an idea in mind ready!

Colchester Castle trip

 

Thank you for the reply slips that have already come in!

 

It was missed off the slip, but we will need a few parent helpers for the trip so if you are available to come with us, please could you write a note on the back of the slip or let me know in some way. 

 

Thank you!

Dear parents,

The Merlins have earned a class reward and they have decided they would like to watch a film with a snack. We are going to do this on FRIDAY AFTERNOON so please bring your snack for the afternoon then.

Well done Merlins! It will be a great reward for working so hard on the assembly too.

REMINDER

The trip to Chigwell Synagogue is tomorrow! Please arrive at school at the front gate for 8:30. One of the teachers will let you in. Year 3/4 will be leaving school at 8:45

Also, girls should be wearing tights and boys should be wearing trousers as a sign of respect in the place of worship. 

Thank you. See you tomorrow. 

 

As you have probably seen in the diary, our class assembly is coming up on 31st January. We have started to prepare and the children have come home with their script today. If they could do their best to learn their words over the weekend that would be amazing so that we can get on practising efficiently! The couple of songs we are doing along with the words are on the class page now so any practice of that would be great too!

 

Also, thank you to the parents who said they were available for the synagogue trip next week. We don't need many helpers at all for this one, so if I haven't been able to catch you, we can't take any more but thank you!!

 

Thank you for your support!

CHRISTMAS REMINDERS (VERSION 2)

 

Thank you for all the children who remembered their costumes today. For those who didn't, we have two performances tomorrow so we need your costume in then. It must be in a named plastic bag. Some children came in today without a bag and I'm afraid our collections of bags are now running out! 

 

The Christmas Dinner has been rescheduled for Tuesday 17th December so now the Year 3 and Year 4 party will be happening on Monday 16th December. Please can you bring the food on the Monday instead. Thank you very much.

The pantomime is on Monday too so the children can wear their Christmas jumpers then. 

 

Miss Dodd

COSTUME REMINDER

 

Our first performance is on Wednesday and we have hardly any costumes! Please can these come in tomorrow in a named bag.

CHRISTMAS REMINDERS

The production is next week. The title of the production is called 'It's Chr-i-i-i-stmas!' so the children need to dress up in anything 'Christmassy' - jumpers, t-shirts, Santa hats, tinsel etc. The production is on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th December (1:45pm and 6pm performances.) Children to arrive at 5:30pm for the evening performances. 

Please let me know if your child cannot make the evening performances.

 

Also, the children were sent home with a letter this week about the Christmas party. This will take place on Tuesday 17th December. Merlin class should be bringing in crisps. Remember to send the children in with something SMALL on the day of the party. No nuts in any item please!

 

Thank you for your continued support!

Homework 06.12.19. The children will revise the same times tables as last week (x4, x6 and x8.) There is also a maths sheet stuck into their homework books again instead of CGP books. Thank you and have a lovely weekend!

The children have won a class reward and have decided that they would like to bring in toys and games to play with. Please can they make sure they don't bring in anything too precious or breakable as they will be responsible for it. No electronic/screen games please. 

 

We will do this on Friday afternoon so they can bring in their toy in a bag to save for the afternoon. 

 

Well done Merlins!

Homework 18.10.19: The spelling sheet is stuck into the children's homework diaries already. Please ensure that the children are practising x3, x4 and x5 times tables both MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION. We are revisiting these again this week because the scores were not as high as we had hoped. Well done though if you managed a high score this week!

Dear parents and carers,

Merlin class have been amazing and have earned themselves a reward by filling up their jar!

They have chosen to watch a film in their pyjamas with a teddy, so we will be doing this on Friday afternoon.

They should bring their pyjamas in a carrier bag and they will get changed in the afternoon.

Well done Merlins!

Ancient Egyptian Workshop

Our Ancient Egyptian Workshop is Friday 15th November! Please make sure that the children have a costume which they can come to school in. This could be a pharaoh, Cleopatra or an archaeologist. You still have plenty of time though so don't worry. 

Also, a very kind parent of year 3 has emailed in to suggest an event which is happening at the British Museum. It is called 'Digital Workshop: Egyptian Photobooth.' It is taking place on Saturday 19th October from 11:00am - 4:00pm.

An added bonus, it is COMPLETELY FREE and you can just turn up!

Thank you to that parent for your suggestion.

 

Miss Chandler and Miss Dodd.

RESILIENCE POWERPOINT

Times tables

 

Just to clear this up for everyone, this is what the times tables tests look like!

 

They have 40 questions to do in 5 minutes. 

The questions are all mixed up, not in order.

They will only be tested on the tables specified that week, although hopefully they will be able to practise others too! 

When there are division facts too, this means that as well as eg. 4 x 5 = ______ , they may be asked 20 ÷ 5 = _______ to make sure they are really embedded. 

 

I hope this makes sense!

Sorry!

 

Unfortunately the new CGP homework books didn't make it home today amongst everything else to be remembered! 

 

They will definitely be coming home with your child on Monday. If you have a chance to do it during the week please do, but as obviously I know this may be inconvenient for some of you, they won't be expected to have done this week's pages until the following Thursday.

 

Thank you!

 

 

Homework 20.09.19. The project and the pages for the CGP books are in the document attached. The children should be practising x2, x3 and x5 times tables with DIVISION this week! Thank you.

Homework 13.09.19

The children have been sent home with a spelling sheet in their homework diaries. They have also been asked to learn the x2, x3 and x5 times tables. Homework is to be handed in by Thursday and both tests will take place on Thursday also.

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are going to be making Egyptian Death Masks this half term in Art. We would really appreciate if you could send your child in with an empty (and washed) four pints plastic milk bottle. We need these by Monday 16th September

Thank you,

Basketball - We were very lucky today to have a taster basketball session! The children had a great go at some games and did brilliantly, especially considering that the rules were all new to them! Some letters have gone home with those who wanted them about possibly joining basketball club in school.
