 During Theme this week the children will be continuing to explore the Active Planet.The children will be continuing to learn about Earthquakes and Volcanoes and the impact that these natural disasters have on the environment.


Over the next two weeks the children will be taught their SRE lessons too. You will have received a letter outlining the objectives for these three lessons. Please contact your child's class teacher if you wish to discuss anything.

You can help your child 

By encouraging them to read at least three times a week, practising their weekly spellings and discussing different spelling rules with them. Continue to encourage your child to practise their passports to support their mental recall and complete any My Maths homework that has been issued. Just a reminder that learning Logs are given out to the children on a Friday and are expected to be returned the following Thursday; if any children have any problems, please encourage them to speak to their teacher as early in the week as possible.


The children really enjoyed their camp and were very well behaved - well done year 3 and 4!
