Homework and spellings for half term.

    

 

These spellings are some of the high frequency words, for KS1, that the children need to use accurately when writing. Please practise with your child so that they can use them with confidence. We will have a spelling test on the Thursday, as we return from half term, and will randomly choose some of these words.

Our trip Colchester Zoo

A big thank you for giving Whale class some new books to share.

It was World Book day on Thursday 2rd March and so, to celebrate, Year 6 and Year 1 read and shared books; which the children thoroughly enjoyed.

Homework - week ending 3rd March. We have included an example of how to approach the maths sheet. Remind the chidren that, in the final step of the calculation, they can add the two numbers together in either order.

Whale class iced and decorated cakes or biscuits for their class treat. Here they are showing off their goodies.

Homework week ending 24.2.17

Here are some examples of the strategy we have been using in class this week to help the children to add up. Please encourage your children to use this method and show the steps they have taken to get to the answer.

Before half term the children presented a Bible Assembly on Justice. They spoke confidently and clearly to the whole school, with many teachers commenting on how well they had done. Thank you for your support in helping them to learn their lines and well done to all the children.

Sharing Homework Projects

Just to say a big thank you for all of the very generous gifts that you gave the staff in Whale class.

We wish you all a very merry Christmas and hope that the children have a fabulous time.

We look forward to hearing all about the fun, that you got up to over Christmas, when you come back in January.

Thank you so much again.

Kind regards,

Mrs Jessop, Mrs Ward, Mrs Price and Ms Short xxsmiley

Infant Christmas party.

 School Games Event.

 

Whale and Dolphin classes took part in a football tournament recently; where they played each other within their houses. They had lots of fun and conducted themselves in a sportsman-like manner. They cheered and celebrated each other's successes and everyone took part.

It was a closely fought tournament but the eventual winners were:

Burrell girls and Landon boys.

Very well done to everyone.  

More wonderful homework
