Year 3 and 4 have been learning all about Vikings this term. Class 11 had great fun during Art and Design Technology making their Viking longship and shields, then turned into fearless invaders!
YEAR 5 & 6 MUSIC
Children in Year 5 and 6 get the opportunity to learn to play a brass instrument during their music lessons. This could be a trumpet, trombone or euphonium. Last week they had the chance to demonstrate their skills in a mini concert, led by their music teacher Mrs Wilde.
Reminder: Any Year 6 children who would like to start private instrument lessons after school should speak to Miss Allen.
Around the World Week
To celebrate 'International Mother Tongue Day' and 'World Thinking Day' all of the children in school will be taking part in Around the World Week. There will be two special days on Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd February where each classroom will be transformed into a different country! The children will learn about the different languages, stories, traditions and cultures of many countries from all over the world.
Our big question for the week will be:
'Why is it important to learn about people who live in different places?'
Please support your child's learning at home by talking to them about respect, tolerance and diversity.
Dear Parents, Carers and Children
I want to start by wishing you all a relaxing and enjoyable half-term break.
We have had a few telephone calls from parents suggesting that their children are being forced to eat their dinner before being allowed out to play. I would like to reassure you that this is not the case. There may be some confusion over the children asking to eat their pudding when they have not eaten enough of their main meal. We will say “can you eat some more of your food” or “can you eat a little more for me” before they are allowed to eat their pudding.
It is really important for the children to eat as much of their lunchtime meal as possible. It provides them with energy, which helps them to carry out their afternoon learning activities. It also provides healthy food, which helps to keep them healthy.
Have a relaxing break, and I look forward to seeing you again on Monday 20th February.
Around the World School Dinners
As part of “Around the World” week, Nora and her team will be providing special school dinners from around the world on the two special days. Can you work out which country each of the dishes comes from?
Well Done Class 1!
We celebrated excellent attendance from Class 1 last week; they achieved 100% attendance and zero lates all week.
Thank you to everyone who took part in last week’s non-uniform day. You helped to raise £216.38 for school funds. And a special thank you to Miss Ford for organising it!
