We have started a new reward system at school called Class Dojo!
The best thing about this is you can view how you are getting on at home!
Use the login that will be sent home and look as a family, edit your dojo and have lots of fun!

We have also introduced a new app to help us learn our times tables.
This is an amazing app that helps children with their times tables.  The best part is earning coins to change your own rockstar and compete as a class or beat your best time!
I will set specific times tables and will monitor your improvement from school,  we will also be doing our own assessments at school using this system.  It is fun!
To access the ones we set, go onto GARAGE or ARENA area!

Who will be the most improved times table rockstar and have their picture up in the hall AND wear the rockstar dress up in school?

Finally, I will see you on Friday at the school Christmas fair!

Many thanks for your ongoing support,

Miss Sisk and Mrs Hall.

Well done to the children for their positive attitude to learning and stepping up to junior expectations!

Home Learning will be given out on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday.

PE is every Monday PM. Please make sure all kit is named and in school.  Due to the government’s new policy, earrings have to be removed for PE and adults at school can not assist with taking them out.

Next week is science week.  We will be doing lots of fun activities such as build a wind turbine, making slime and building a rocket.  We will also be looking at planting seeds in our recycled toilet roll holders and planting them in the ground.

A big thanks must go to Mrs Hall for arranging all the wonderful activities and for getting in all the supplies.
