Review of last week:
 
The Cake Sale for the RSPCA held on Tuesday 10th October raised £52
Emily, Katie, Rebecca, Jack and Callum worked really hard to make this a success.
A fabulous total and great team work!
 
Our trip to St Bartholomew's  last Thursday morning was a lovely outing. We were blessed with the weather and the children's behaviour and participation was excellent.
Many thanks to Revd Jane for leading our discussion. The children went back to school and produced some thoughtful writing and some "stained glass" art inspired by St Bartholomew's windows. They thoroughly enjoyed the morning.
 
Thank you to those parents accompanied us and stopped traffic!
 
How to help your child:
 
  • Encourage  reading 
  • Practise times tables regularly. Tables knowledge is essential to our current learning of long multiplication and long division methods.
  • Spellings need to be learned - they are the key words for year 6.
