Week 4 Update

Home Learning: It was wonderful to see the huge number of children who remembered to hand in home learning books and maths home learning today. If your child is one of the few who forgot, please make sure they pack it to hand in on Monday. The last Science Badges Sheets and Action English books arrived today. I have just rung the Mathletics people, they are about to process our school, so we should be up and running with this in a few days.  If your child is missing something for home learning, please contact their teacher. We would love to hear some feedback on how our new home learning system is working for your child, please click on the comment tab below.

Leadership: We have now allocated all leadership positions and training is underway. Badges for Student Council, House Captain and Pride Ambassadors will be presented in PRIDE assembly later this term.

Library: Room 18 and 19 had a successful trip to the South Library on Wednesday. Room 16 and 17 need to remember their library cards this coming Wednesday, 20th.

Reading and Maths Tutor: If your child needs some extra help with reading or maths and you are looking for a tutor, contact Kay Harris 3323912 or 0273800050. Kaye is a primary teacher who is taking a year away from the classroom. I know Kaye and highly recommend her.

Life Education: We started our Life Education visits this week. Try asking your child how many servings of: vegetables, fruit, rice - cereal - pasta, meat /or meat replacement and milk products we should be eating each day. The first visit was information and activity packed, we are looking forward to the next two sessions.
