Welcome back to the second half of the Summer term, which has started well.I am delighted to return following an absence and to see that the children completed the last topic 'Rites and Ritual'. I was sorry to miss the final lessons linked to the Mayans, but know that the children enjoyed the learning. Some rather scary masks greeted me on my return!
We have had a busy week, including a sponsored 'fun run', and have started our new topic linked to life cycles-
'Round and Round'. The children have studied key elements of a story linked to the life cycle of an eel and will use this as a basis for their own story; the Home Learning task will support this.
Please note that PE lessons are on Thursday and Friday and ensure that the correct kit is in school-a few children regularly forget parts of their kit.
As always,thank you for the continued support of your child's learning- it is invaluable in helping progress.Should you have any queries or problems, do not hesitate to contact me.

Key Stage 2 Concert in the school hall
Class 5 have had an enjoyable and interesting half term learning about some aspects of life in 17th Century London, as part of the topic 'Fever, Fire and Fashion'. I am sure you will also agree, they wrote very persuasive letters to Mrs Burgess regarding changes to the curriculum. Despite some children's efforts, we will continue with PE lessons twice a week.The children also showed great interest in the Science lessons relating to changes to materials.
Mathletics has been introduced to the whole of Key stage 2 and so far has proved very popular. We welcome any feedback- positive or negative. We wish this to be a success and for the children to enhance their learning through this online tool.
We look forward to a new unit, 'Poles Apart'. Take time to view the curriculum map to see the topics that will be covered this half-term.
Meanwhile, enjoy the break.
