W/b 23rd November - Week 4

Dear parents and carers,


This week the children are taking part in the Safer walking scheme on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning.  Please ensure they are wearing suitable clothes for the weather, including gloves and a hat if they have them.  This opportunity is provided by the Richmond Safer Walking team. We will also have a visit from Tim this week to support the children with their learning about The Beatitudes.


Please see the Support at Home section on the school website for details of what we are learning about in class this week.


We would like the children to complete the following homework this week (due in Monday 30th November):


  • Reading every evening and recording this in their Home School Diary.  This can be recorded by you or your child.
  • This week the children will be looking at the ‘ul’ sound and the two different ways of spelling it: le and el. They have a ‘look, cover, write’ sheet and an activity to complete at home. These spellings will be tested on 30th November.
  • This week for homework we would like the children to create a Roman or Celtic artefact for Roman Day. We will be using these artefacts to create our own museum on the day. The children can create their artefact using materials of their choice and must include a museum label to name and describe their artefact. This homework is due in on Roman Day, on 7th December, however if it is finished before hand it can come to school sooner. Please see the version of the weekly letter sent out via ParentMail for ideas.


Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Bayman, Miss Paish and Mr Kent
