HAPPY NEW YEAR!
What a wonderful Autumn Term we had - full of fun and exciting learning opportunities for all! The children thoroughly enjoyed our Topic on WWII - many children brought in books, information and stories to share. Thank you for your support. The trip to Ipswich Museum was a great success - a wonderful addition to our school learning. Please take a look at our photos, if you haven't already. Thank you to to all of the children (and parents!) that took part in our 'Chilli homework Challenge' each class enjoyed sharing the work completed and information gathered. Well done! We have heard that many children got the fantastic book 'Letters from the Lighthouse' for Christmas - what lucky children they are! Emma Carroll has written many more books that are equally as enjoyable - including 'When we were warriors' - where children may recognise familiar characters and settings.
Welcome back! We have already had a busy start to the new year, starting our new topic - 'Our Connected World' and our new English focus on Newspaper Reports. We had a very strange delivery this first week - a box of 'spare parts' (see below for some photos)... We have no idea where these have come from. We are hoping that by writing our own Newspaper reports we will be able to gather some more information. We will keep you posted! If you would like to support your child, 'First News' newspaper, or 'The Week' junior are great and are aimed at children. All classes have enjoyed reading examples of these this week.
This term, the Year 3 children will be swimming on a Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure you send your child in with a swimming costume and towel in a named bag! Goggles are highly recommended, swimming hats are optional! All children with long hair, must have it tied up, if you wish they can bring a small hair towel. It is also very important to make sure all clothes are labelled - trying to find a cardigan or jumper, in a hot changing room, when they all look very similar, is not an easy task!
All children will be taking part in Squash sessions on a Monday morning. Full PE kits will be needed. Wren class have football with Haz on a Thursday and Year 4 Cuckoo children will have bench ball on a Wednesday afternoon - hall space permitted.
Please find below a few helpful reminders for the term.
Please remember that your child needs to come into the school building by themselves, between 8.40am and 8.50am. Any messages can be given to the ladies on the door or a note popped into their bookbags/folders. School for KS2 finishes at 3.05pm, please make sure you are there to collect your child on time. If for any reason you are running late, please phone the school office to let them know. If your child is being picked up by another adult you must write a note to let us know.
Every child will need to have a named water bottle in school each day. Please remember to name all uniform, PE kits and trainers (not plimsolls) - they are much easier to find when named! PE kits will need to be in school every day as PE days can vary. These will be sent home each half term to be washed. Please refer to the uniform and PE policy for full list of uniform or ask your child's teacher.
