Hot weather

As it is going to be very hot this week please make sure you send children into school with a named water bottle with a sports cap so that we can make sure children drink plenty through the day. Children should also bring a hat into school and should either have had sun cream applied or should bring it into school to apply themselves in a named bottle. Please make sure forms have been filled in for children to apply their own sun cream.

Lucky Dip

For the last two weeks we have been using this animation in our English lessons. The children have loved using it to look at the character, the setting, the feelings the characters experience etc. 

They have produced some excellent writing from it! Please share it at home and discuss what is happening. Talk about which bits they have enjoyed and why. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
