SIGNS OF AUTUMN
The Nursery children have been looking for signs of Autumn this week. They collected leaves from the playground and enjoyed exploring their colours and textures.
Children across school have been enjoying their trips to Waterstones for the last 2 weeks. We're really excited to receive our book deliveries! Please enjoy reading your new books together at home.
Don’t forget that Parents’ Evenings are next week. They are very important as they give you the chance to find out how your child is getting on at school, and what you can do to support their education. They are on Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th for Classes 11 and 17, and Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th for all other classes.
Please speak to your child’s teacher if you haven’t already got an appointment.
Code Breaker Challenge
For their topic this term, Year 5 and 6 are finding out all about English Monarchs. This week, Class 18 completed a code breaker challenge in Maths to find out who was the longest reigning monarch after Elizabeth II. Do you know who it was?
