Happy Holidays to all our families
See you back on Tuesday 6th June
SATs week is well underway for the year 6's! They're enjoying starting the day with breakfast and sensory circuits before their tests. All the children have been trying their hardest and making us proud! :)
Year 5's, meanwhile, are completing an independent project about the Roman Gods on PowerPoint. Ready for a presentation on Friday.
Planets class have had rather a quiet end of week as they have been taking part in their sponsored silence. The money raised from this will be given to St Mary's church, Bluntisham, who will then pass it on to Faith in Action Ministries, in Pondicherry, India. So far the children have raised £87 from their sponsored silence and a further £30 from the tuck shop. There are still many children to bring in their sponsor forms so we will update next week with the grand total. A BIG well done for what has been raised so far!! :)
Children have also been learning about Ernest Shackleton and his adventure to the Antarctic. The children have done lots of research and have ended the week by writing in role of Shackleton. One child quoted today that learning so much about the expedition and the explorer has really helped them to understand the topic and has helped their writing today! :) It's always lovely to hear such lovely, positive comments.
And talking of positive comments, Mrs Ray was overwhelmed today by the response to her Spanish lesson. The children in Planets class are at an advantage to having a Spanish teacher in their classroom and are really starting to pick up the language. Well done Mrs Ray and well done Planets class for putting so much effort and enthusiasm into the lesson.
Reading Challenge this week is 96%....so close to beating this! We need every child to have at least 5 comments for the week to beat our best and make it to 100%....can we do it before Easter?!
The first class to achieve 100% will be rewarded with a special prize – A mad hatter’s tea party
