We have completed our descriptive writing of the African rain-forest. Next week we are starting to study Anthony Brown's fabulous text - ZOO, and beginning to find out about discursive writing. In maths we have been multiplying fractions. In the week to come we will be looking at decimals.
Every class has adopted a lion for a year which is currently funded by the staff. We are asking for a donation of maximum £1 per child to help cover the cost of this. This is voluntary and we appreciate any contributions. Please send this in with your child direct to their class teacher.
The children have all been put into their teams this week and should know which colour group they will be in on the day. We will be having a practice on Monday 13th so please ensure your child has their full PE kit with them.
In preparation for this year’s KS2 sports day on Wednesday 22nd May we would like to give you some advanced information.
Start time: 9.30am
Finish time: Approximately 11.45am
As before, the children will be seated in coloured teams. Please ensure they wear a coloured top to indicate their team colour. We will notify you the week before sports day as to which colour group your child will be in. Children are expected to stay seated in their team area on the inside of the track.
Under no circumstances are the children allowed across the track, so please ensure they have a water bottle and sun cream applied before they come to school.
Please arrive before 9.30am to get settled in your place within the spectators area which is behind the roped off area opposite the children on the other side of the track. We ask all spectators (adults and children) to respect the rule that no one is allowed to go on or cross the track during sports day.
We understand when your child is in an event you may want to move to get a good photograph of them in action, however please do not obstruct the finish line and the adults who are in charge of placing the winners.
We are really looking forward to sports day and hope to see you there.

Homework club runs on Friday lunchtime for those pupils who need it.
It is always a good idea to continue the excellent habits of regular reading, and to record this in your child's reading record ( 4 or 5 times a week is appropriate).
Please complete online multiplication tables, and record two scores in your homework book - http://www.timestables.me.uk/index.html .
