Please take a moment to read our key information.
Swimming is on a Monday afternoon. The children must remember to bring in their swimming things with them on Monday morning. Please note that for safety reasons: jewellery's not allowed, this includes earrings, long hair must be tied back and covered with a swimming hat and no goggles are to be worn.
If your child is too ill to go swimming, please ensure the school office is informed.
This half term (until Christmas) we will be learning to play hockey. This will be outside so children will need to bring in trainers and suitable outdoor sports wear eg joggers and a sweatshirt.
Homework is given twice weekly. On Tuesday there will be English homework and this is die back on Wednesday.
On Thursday there will be maths homework which is due back on Friday.
We are just beginning to learn about forces. To get us hooked into this topic, we have experimented with balancing toys. One group made bids from card and looked at how we can make the bird balance on our finger-tip.
The other group made a clown and tried to make it balance on a tight-rope.
We learnt a lot about weight and the centre of gravity and we could confidently talk about what we have noticed.
