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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
