08.09.2017 – First week back! September 9, 2017

Posted by Chris Bennett in : Uncategorized , trackback

It has been great to see all the children back this week. Some were apprehensive on Wednesday, but have all settled in well and have started working hard straight away.

Thank you to all parents for ensuring your children are in school on time and looking so smart. All children have been in the correct uniform everyday and it really makes a difference.

We have started our English project for this half term. We are looking at the book ‘The Roman Empire’. The children have enjoyed what we have read so far. On Friday we used our fantastic writing skills to describe ourselves as Roman Emperors! The class were brilliant at thinking of their Roman names!

In maths, we have started off using our Abacus scheme to learn all about place value. This week we have been looking at addition to the next multiple of 100. Children struggled at first, but by the end of maths on Friday, every child was confident. Everyone showed fantastic resilience!

In our topic lesson, we looked at the journey taken by the Roman army on their way to conquer Britain. During this lesson we also looked at the continents and oceans of the world. We struggled through, but finally managed to name them all. I will be asking the children how many they can remember next week!

We looked at democracy and how it impacts on our lives during a SMSC lesson this week. We then compared our democracy to the democracy of the Roman Empire. On Friday, we had our own democratic vote in class, electing two new student council representatives. Well done to Callum and Ella who were elected!

Reading books and reading records will be sent home next week. Please ensure children are regularly reading at home and record it in their record.

Our first championship point winner of the year was Leanne, well done!

We will be doing P.E. on Mondays and Tuesdays, so please make sure children have their kit in school on Monday.

Letters went out this week about our first trip of the year to Yorkshire Sculpture park. Please return letters for this as soon as possible!

If there are any questions or queries about anything to do with school, please get in touch or come and see us in school!

Have a good weekend!

Mr Bennett
