Penhaligon Newsletter 19.5.17
This week we have been completing our SATS. The children have been fantastic and a real credit to themselves. Well done Penhaligon class! In Science we made our own plant models and labelled them with Mrs Davis.
Home Learning and Reading
As we are finishing off Sats next week and the children will be tested in their spelling, reading and arithmetic I have not set any formal home learning. If you would like to you could continue to practise the 2s, 5s, and 10s times tables and revise any spellings previously learnt this year. As an optional activity practise telling the time with your child. We made our own clocks today and the children need to practise making and reading half past, quarter to, and quarter past times. Please ensure you are reading with your child as often as possible. The children need to be practising their reading at home to ensure that they continue to build their fluency and develop their understanding. Please initial their reading record when you have read with them.
Mrs Whatley will be coming in every Monday to teach recorder for the rest of this term. We have had three sessions so far and the children have been fantastic! We hope to include a recorder performance in our class assembly and open afternoon on Thursday 13th July.
Weather permitting, KS1 Sports day will be next week on Wednesday 24th May. It will start at 1:30pm and will be finished by the end of the school day. Children will need full PE kit including plimsolls or trainers. They will also need a drink in a suitable drinks bottle and a hat.
Thank you for your continued support
