It has been a relatively quiet week at school but the children continue to impress with their hard work and excellent standards. I was very pleased to listen to how they had learnt about bar modelling, ordinal sets of numbers, factors and multiples in maths, diary entries, descriptive writing and descriptions of fireworks in their creative writing and some wonderful still life and Diwali artwork. We had a wonderful time on Thursday afternoon and spent over 40 minutes engaged in some very interesting and high quality discussion. Thank you children. Preparations are well underway for Christmas and families have already been asked to contribute costumes for different performances. Please help your child to learn their lines.
TODAY IS REMEMBRANCE DAY AND MARKS THE END OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR. WE REMEMBER THE FALLEN FROM THIS WAR AND ALL OTHERS AND MARKED IT WITH 2 MINUTES SILENCE EARLIER TODAY AT 11 O’CLOCK
The word of the week is – HUFF-CAP (1600s) – a headstrong swaggerer; one who blusters into situations and frequently causes chaos.
