Secret Santa

In class 3 we have decided to do ‘Secret Santa’.

The children have been given the name of somebody else in our class to get a gift for. We have set a maximum budget of £3.00 to spend on a gift, but homemade gifts are great too 🙂

Please can the children bring the gifts into school for the last day of term (20th December). The gifts need to be wrapped and labelled with who they are for but not who they are from.

Recycle your christmas jumper stall

This year at the Christmas fayre we will be holding a recycle your Christmas jumper stall. If you have any unwanted or outgrown Christmas jumpers to donate to our stall please bring them to Ladybird class or to the main office anytime before Friday. They will be on sale at the fayre for £2 each.

Please note: Christmas jumpers must be in good, clean condition.

Thank you in advance

Spellings

The 6 high frequency spellings that we are going to focus on this week are decide, who, busy, eight, surprise and remember.

We are also focussing on the prefixes -dis and -in added to the beginning of some words to change their meaning.

This includes words such as like – dislike, appear-disappear, visible-invisible and dependent-independent.

Please take the time to practice these spellings with your child at home throughout the week. You can look at how words change when using and not using the prefixes -dis and -in.

Thank you for your continued support.

Spooky Disco Arrangements

The ‘Spooky’ discos are on Thursday this week.

Nursery, Reception and KS1 children will be taken into the disco at 1.45pm, if they have a ticket.  All other children will remain in class. Children will then go back to class at 2.45pm and be collected from the classroom as normal at the end of the day.

KS2 children will go into the disco at 3pm, if they have a ticket. All other children will remain in class and will then be taken onto the playground at hometime as usual. At the end of the disco (4pm) the main door in reception will be opened and you can collect your child from the school hall.  Please enter the hall through the door opposite the nursery and leave the hall through the door opposite the Stars room.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Compost bottles


Yesterday the children took home the compost bottles that they have made in class (some still have theirs to do next week). We have been learning about what soil is made of and why it is important.

I have attached the instructions of what to do next to achieve the best compost for planting 😊.

Spelling log books were also sent home, please can these be returned on Monday so that we can complete our spelling activities during the week.

Thanks, Miss Taylor.

Class 3

Just a little message to say thank you for encouraging your children to read as much as they can at home and for helping them create some really interesting homework for our topic.

I have sent home some reading challenge cards for your child/children to use (optional) as they read their book at home. They don’t need to bring in the activities that they do but it is a good way to encourage deeper learning and understanding of the book they are reading.

The children are also bringing home their spelling log books (continuing from Year 2- we are on 2B Unit 10) with words to practice that they have chosen from the activities they’ve completed throughout the week. The log books must be returned to school on Monday. We have been practicing the suffix ‘al’ this week.

Could your child/children please bring in an empty plastic bottle (2 litre if possible) for next Wednesday for a Science activity. 

Thank you 🙂

Class 3

We have had a great first week in Class 3, all of the children have settled in brilliantly and we are looking forward to the rest of this year.

On Friday I sent home reading diaries and have encouraged the children to read at home as much as possible. For each home read, the children get a raffle ticket that is entered into our class prize draw.

I also sent home a homework grid and folder. The homework activities are linked to our topic this term of ‘The Stone Age’. It would be great if the children could complete 1 activity of their choice from the grid each week.

I have attached the Topic plan and a copy of the homework grid. If you have any questions, please let me know 🙂 Miss Taylor.
