Timetable Autumn 2021

 

Home Learning 

There is a two week rota for learning to be completed at home - one week the focus will be on English and Maths; the following week home learning will cover other foundation subjects, e.g. Science, History, Art etc.

Every pupil is expected to read at home daily for at least 10 minutes.  We would encourage your child to read as many different genres as possible.  Please sign the reading records to indicate that this has been done each day.

All children in Year 5 and 6 are given a selection of words to learn and practise at home.  These can be found in their small blue spelling journals.  Please, encourage your child to practise these regularly.

We would strongly encourage every child to practise their times tables regularly (at least 3 or 4 times per week) using Times Tables Rock Stars.  There is a weekly tournament set up against our sister school (Puller) and every time you use TTRS, your score counts towards our school’s score!

 

Highlights of the term 

Class Reader - War Horse by Michael Morgurgo

Narrated from an unusual perspective, Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse tells a powerful story of humanity and friendship that touches people of all ages.

In 1914, Joey, a young farm horse, is sold to the army and thrust into the midst of the war on the Western Front. With his officer, he charges towards the enemy, witnessing the horror of the frontline. But even in the desolation of the trenches, Joey’s courage touches the soldiers around him.

Class 3's 100 Books Challenge

Mrs Maskell has set her pupils an ambitious challenge this year: 100 books to try and read before they leave Year 6.  These books are supplementary to the usual school reading books and have been chosen because they are either classic "must-reads" for children or new and exciting publications; all of which are of the highest quality. 

 

River Rib Educational Visit 11th October 2021

  

                             

Class 3 pupils had a "splashing" time on their educational visit to the River Rib.  Experts from The Friends of the Rib and Quin led a wonderful afternoon devoted to examing the health of this nearby chalk river.  The children learned about the plant and animal life found in the river and even examined a few species.  We learned about possible pollution, the health of the river, why it is so important and we also found lots of treasures on the river bed.  We certainly had lots of fun!
