It is so lovely to see you all back and ready to learn. We have some wonderful mini missions planned for you this year and we really hope that you will enjoy them.
PE Days are Thursday for 5F (swimming kit and PE kit both needed this day)
Thursday and Friday for 5B (PE kit on Thursday and swimming kit on Friday)
Homework will be given out on a Thursday, marked in school with the children on the following Thursday and new homework given. Homework should be handed in by Wednesday of each week please.
Spellings will be tested on a Friday and new spellings will be stuck in to the front of diaries to learn for the following week.
Please record reading at home a minimum of three times per week and sign your child's diary to acknowledge that this has taken place.
Sharing assembly will take place at 9:00am on a Friday morning in the Key Stage One hall, you will be notified by Marvellous Me if your child will be receiving a certificate in sharing assembly. If you no longer have Marvellous Me installed, please contact school for a joining code as this is the main way for us to share messages, good news and reminders with you.
Your child should bring their water bottle, a healthy snack and their pencil case (if they have one) to school with them each day. The tuck shop is now open for children to purchase toast, crumpets, teacakes, milkshakes or juice during their breaktime each morning.
Our first mini mission for the Autumn half term is based on the book 'Tuesday by David Weisner. It is a picture book with amazing artwork. In this mini mission the children will use figurative language to write a narrative for the story. They will also use more formal language to create a crime report about the mysterious incident. In Science, the children will learn about friction, air resistance and water resistance linked to the story. They will carry out scientific investigations and write them using scientific language. Using geographical skills, maps and plans they will plan a route around Atherstone for the frogs, incorporating symbols and using grid references.
To complete the mini mission, children will practise sketching, using perspective to create a watercolour of a scene from the story.
Music, Art and Religious Education will also take place during the half term, but will be taught discretely.
