Greek Day: On Monday we enjoyed meeting Penelope and Andros from Ancient Athens and Sparta and finding all about what it was like living in their 'Polis' (city states) We had an interesting and interactive morning exploring artefacts, dressing up, acting as different members of society, seeing real Spartan weapons and learning to play Greek games. Our afternoon was spent making city state coins out of clay, using drama to explore mythical stories and learning to balance peacock feathers! This was a fantastic experience, taught us all an enormous amount and really brought the ancient past to life.

On Wednesday during dance we explored different pieces of music we could use in the Christmas performance dance and enjoyed watching the Anti-bullying assembly that our Ambassadors organised.

Next week is Nursery Rhyme Week in Owls class to celebrate world Nursery Rhyme week. 

We will be taking part in a range of activities, including counting spiders from Incy Wincy and sharing out of bags of wool from baa baa black sheep!

Our number of the week is 6. We are continuing to have a big focus on forming numbers correctly and looking at a set of objects and knowing how many there are (up to 4 objects) without counting. 

I am so proud of how well the children are getting on with their red tricky words. These are words that can't be sounded out so need to be learnt by sight, I will send home a list of the first set of red words we are working on in class.

We are having a real focus on writing our round letters and will be sending home a sheet for the children to practise. 

This week, singing practice is beginning for our Christmas play. We are so excited!

As always, thank you for your continued support and please ask if you are unsure of anything or if we can help in anyway.

Toucans week beg. 21.10.19, by Mrs Whittingham

Date: 16th Oct 2019 @ 3:41pm

Thank you to everyone who attended our Parents Evening. We hope you enjoyed seeing the fantastic work that your children have done so far this year and hearing how they are progressing in Year 6. 

Next week, the children will be continuing their writing based on our book 'Star of Fear, Star of Hope'. So far they have written some lovely diary entries and letters in the role as Helen. In Maths, they will be looking at prime numbers to 100 and we will take a look at some exam questions around number. The children will continue to work on their enquiry based project focusing on an aspect of conflict that interests them. In RE, we will be learning about Shabbat and how Jews celebrate together. In PE, the children will continue to work on invasion games with Mr Ault on Friday.

Maths Homework

Thank you for helping your child to complete their maths homework last week. We were glad to see that by self-checking their own work the children were immediately able to explain what they found easy/difficult. Don’t forget if your child has found a topic particularly difficult, mark the page with a red dot and then we will work on these weaknesses as part of our intervention sessions in school.

Just to remind you, each week, your child will circle and date the page numbers that we would like them to complete that week, they can write it in their homework diaries and we will also put on the blog each week, the page numbers we would like them to do too! The books will go home on a Friday each week and will be due in on the following Wednesday.

This week, we would like them to complete pages 18 and 19 (Written Division) due in on Wednesday 23rd October.

Spellings

Our spelling words next week will focus on suffixes:

admitting, forgotten, committed, beginner, referring, regretted, forbidden, preferred, stoppable, referring

Aladdin

The children will be rehearsing for their roles in our Christmas Production on Friday afternoon during school time.

Inter School Sports Competitions

We have the following sporting events coming up next week. Mr Ault and Mrs Whittingham have selected the teams and your child will have had a letter already if they were chosen.

Tuesday 22nd October away football match at Sandiway.

Wednesday 23rd October Tag Rugby at Moss Farm

Art Day

Toucans will have an Art Day on Thursday 24th October. They will explore the work of the Wartime artist Paul Nash and create some conflict paintings based on his work. Please could they bring in an old t-shirt/shirt to wear on this day.

As always, just pop in and see us if you have any questions at all.

Mrs Downing, Mrs Whittingham & Mr Beswick
