Term 6, Week 2

Wow, what a fun week it has been. Some children enjoyed an amazing few days away at Bewl Water for this year’s residential. The adults who remained in school have loved hearing all the stories and memories from their time away.  

In school, the children have produced some amazing board games and children’s books that I hope they have shared with you. The children enjoyed a Forest School session too, enjoying making memories in the outdoor area.  

Back to more formal learning for the last few days of this week. We continue to look at the City of Ember in Literacy where the children have used their recall skills to remember key aspects of the book. Then we predicted what will happen now that Lina and Doon have begun to work-out what the ‘Instructions for Egress’ say.  

In Maths, Year 5 continued to look at decimal numbers by multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1,000. Year 6 finished the week by looking at budgeting for a holiday and trying to find some good deals. Maybe, get your child involved in your holiday planning this year; they have a real eye for a bargain!  

In PE, Rowan Class have been looking at Handball. The children have enjoyed learning about this different sport and thinking about working as a team. The children have done the adults proud in PE over the last few weeks, working with others that they may not work with normally.  

We are pleased to announce that Years 5 and 6 will be visiting Kent Life on Wednesday 17th July to support our DT and Science learning from this year. Letters will be sent out shortly.  

PLEASE remember that sports uniform is; black trousers/shorts, a t-shirt in the colour of their team and a black or navy jumper (or school jumper/ fleece). Thank you.  

I do hope you all have a rest over the weekend, ready for the fun to continue next week!  

See you on Monday!  

Mr Bowles, Miss Rackley, Mrs Harris and Miss Hayes.
