Welcome to week the last week (!!) of Term 3! Where on earth has the time gone? What a term we have had! The children have been amazing and have learnt so much in such a short period of time!
Just to keep you updated, I will not be in school on Wednesday this week as am at a conference, however the wonderful Mrs Clarke will be taking the children for the day. I will therefore be teaching the children on Friday instead!
One Wednesday we have our annual Ash Wednesday service at St Mary’s church. As I am not in school, we are in desperate need of two parents to help our wonderful staff accompany the children to church and back. They will be leaving at 9:00 and returning at 10:15. If you are available please let me know ASAP.
We continue to learn and explore The Vikings and Anglo-Saxons this week. We have had so much fun already learning together and shall this week turn our attention to Danegeld!
This week is assessment week so we will spend a lot of time testing what we have learnt throughout the last term. As always this is nothing to worry about and the children will enjoy the process as always.
As always, the children should all have a reading book at home which they must read at least 20 minutes every evening. I have taken notes to identify the books they are reading and checking their planners every Tuesday to ensure this is being recorded. The children can record this information themselves.
Thank you for the push with practising spellings and times tables. Please can we keep on top of this as it is making a huge positive difference to learning!
We continue to have trumpet lessons this term as part of our music curriculum. We will still have our lessons every Tuesday afternoon. I will be sending children home with their trumpets this week to practise at home over the holiday!
Our PE lessons this term continue to be every Monday afternoon and every other Friday. The children are expected to have a full PE kit and trainers. We do have our Monday session outside, so I ask that children have the correct outdoor PE kit.
I am excited to announce that I will be hosting a Viking day in the classroom on the 28th February. This is a whole day dedicated to the Vikings and in invite the children to dress up and participate in lots of fun activities! Please keep an eye out for up and coming information in the coming weeks.
I look forward to the week ahead, I hope the children are too!
For week beginning: 5th February
