Coffee, cake and a catch-up for Macmillan

This Friday, we will once again be hosting a coffee morning in support of the Macmillan Cancer Support charity.  The coffee morning will start at 9am through to 10am, so once you’ve waved goodbye to your child(ren) on the yard, pop in to school via the reception entrance and enjoy a cup of coffee, tea and cake for this worthwhile cause.

Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club continues to grow in popularity; the children are loving the variety of activities, not to mention the choice in breakfast!

The breakfast club form for the start of the new school year is available to download from our website under the Parents section.  Alternatively you can click here and it will take you to the correct page.

Summer Music Concert

The date for our Summer Music Concert is Wednesday, 20th July 2016 at 2.15pm.   The children have been working hard throughout the year, improving week by week – so this is a chance to see what they have learnt during their music lessons.  The concert is usually well attended so don’t be late to ensure you get a seat!  We hope you can make it.

Year 4’s Limericks

Following a wonderful suggestion from Ms Challinor, the Crocodiles have been writing limericks in Class 4. Mrs Thorne then suggested that we should put all them into a book for the Library, so the children have been busy working independently to create a page each. They now have a copy of the book each. They were very excited!!!

My favourite is by Rosie:

There was once a man called Dan,

Who had a very good tan,

He wanted to cook,

But had rotten luck,

As he smashed himself with a pan.

Learning Lens

Once again a very busy term! Here are a few things that we have been upto!

We now have an area in our library where we can go to have a quiet moment or where we can share our thoughts with our friends or a grown up.

We had lots of fun learning about the rainforest. It was great to combine our maths work and literacy with our topic, this meant we got a lot of time to find out great information. In maths, data handling, we created tallies and bar charts. In literacy we focussed on persuasive writing and we all wrote a letter to David Cameron asking him for his help to save the rainforests. And the best thing was we drew butterflies, parrots in flight, and got the opportunity to eat and try unusual South American fruits!
