I'd like to start this week's blog with a big well done to all of the children in Ash Class for their excellent effort in their assessments this week. They completed 2 Maths papers and 1 reading paper and everybody tried their hardest which was all I asked for. Be proud!
Aside from the assessments, we've had a really busy week. We started off on Monday with an exciting afternoon filled with singing and a Santa Fun Run! Throughout the week in English, the children finished writing the story of 'Mog's Christmas Calamity'. In Science, we learnt about careers related to Space and the children all thought about which job they might like to do (some have aspirations to travel into space but others would prefer to stay on Earth!) Maths has been full of multiplication and division this week. We are continuing our weekly Times Table Check so please do keep practising at home and learning all times tables up to 12x12. Those children who are regularly doing this are making great progress.
It's hard to believe that next week is the last week of term! I have a small favour to ask. On Tuesday, we will be having a DT day... baking Christmas biscuits! If you are able to send your child with a little bundle of equipment for use between a small group, that would be incredibly helpful. They will need:
- Plastic mixing bowl
- Wooden spoon
- Rolling pin
- Cutters (perhaps Christmas shapes)
If you can, please send this in on Monday in a labelled bag so I can make sure we have enough for Tuesday. I'm anticipating needing around 9 sets of equipment. The equipment will be thoroughly washed and returned after use.
Have a lovely weekend!
