Dear Parents and Carers

The class really enjoyed the trip to Morrisons. They visited different departments for a ‘behind-the-scenes’ look. They saw an octopus being dissected, found out how jam gets inside a doughnut and even had a go at being a cashier! The whole afternoon was great fun. We will send thank you cards to the staff at Morrisons.

In Literacy this week we are writing recounts based on our story ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Picnic’. The class has read a letter from Mrs. Grinling telling them all about her disastrous trip to the village picnic. We have used the letter to identify features of a recount such as time connectives (first, next, after, then, soon, finally), powerful verbs (doing words) and the use of past tense. Next week during our ‘Big Write’ lesson the children will use these features to write a recount of their trip to Morrisons.

In Number we are learning about multiplication. We have been looking at different arrays and how to write multiplication number sentences to match them.

You can support your child be helping them learn and quickly recall the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

 As it is our class assembly next week, your child may have some lines to learn. Please encourage and support them to remember their lines and say them loudly and clearly. Thank you.

Please continue to read regularly with your child at home. It is important that they become more confident and fluent readers. Following our weekly scrutiny of reading diaries, it is apparent that some children are not reading often at home. In order for your child to get a Bronze reading certificate, they must have completed the first fourteen activities in their reading diary.

Finally, some dates for your diary:                                                                                                      

Class assembly – Tuesday 3rd December at 2.45pm (school hall)                                     

School Christmas Fayre – Saturday 14th December at 10.00am (Memorial Hall)           

Christmas Carolaire – Tuesday 17th December at 6.00pm (Memorial Hall)

Thank you for your continued support,                                                                                       

Mrs. Willetts and Mrs. Burns (Class teachers)
