Merlin - Miss Dodd

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!

Homework 29.11.19. The children haven't been given their CGP Maths this week because they have a sheet stuck into their book. The times tables we wish them to learn are x4, x6 and x8. Thank you!

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.

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.
