Week commencing 5/2/18

Class 6 Lions
For week beginning: 5th February 2018

1. Spelling Test - Monday.  

2. Whitstable - we had a great, albeit cold trip on Friday.  Thanks to Mrs Clarke and Chapman for accompanying us on the visit.   Mrs Chapman took some lovely photos of the visit and I will post these on the blog and galleries soon.

3.  Raising money for the RNLI - we need books!   Following a fantastic personalised visit to the Whitstable RNLI, we have said that we would raise some money for the lifeboats.   I was thinking we could keep a box of books out for sale for parents/children lower down in the school to buy.    If you have some books that are in relatively good condition, that others may read and you are willing to give away, please bring them in.   

4.  Assessment Week - it is our termly opportunity to assess your child's progress.  We will be doing a Writing, GPS and Maths assessment this week and we would really appreciate that your child is in school and has had a good night's sleep. Thanks.

4.  Homework/SATS Buster books - I decided not to set them this week, but there will be books to complete over the half term.   Children will be told on Monday and I will post them in the homework below.

5.  Ash Wednesday - there will be a short service on Wednesday from 9.15am.  You are more than welcome to come and  join us in St Mary's.
