Our Key Stage 2 classes will be studying “Creature Features” this term. Please click on the link to view our topic overview: Creature Features – Spring 2020
This exciting topic will cover areas such as animal adaptations, how animals survive and the effects humans have on animals and their environments.
We will also be discussing recent events such as the Australian wildfires and the effect this has had on Australian wildlife.
This term’s homework will be class-based and linked to work being completed during our lessons. Each piece of homework will be set by the class teacher based on work carried out that week.
Our priorities as a school have changed to meet the needs of our pupil’s emotional wellbeing. Our Wellbeing afternoons offer children fantastic opportunities to co-operate with others in an enjoyable way and to prepare them academically and emotionally for the challenges they will face inside the classroom, and for the world they will enter when they leave school. Your child will have the opportunity to generate ideas for lessons for our wellbeing sessions. Previous wellbeing sessions have included French, Cooking, Drama and Dance. Our Wellbeing sessions this term will be: Sign Language, Art, Craft, Eco, 1960s Singing, Games, Buddies & Gardening.
We are proud to offer free music lessons to children in Years 4 – 6. Mrs Kent and Mrs Maddock visit the school on a Wednesday afternoon and take violin, flute and clarinet lessons.
This service is currently offered at great expense to the school. We therefore respectfully ask that children who are selected for these lessons remember to bring their instrument every Wednesday and take it home to practise. Children are required to show a commitment to learning to play their instrument in order to continue with their lessons.
All Key Stage 2 classes are now using Class Dojo as a means to celebrate hard work and good behaviour. Children will earn “Dojo points” for, amongst other things, trying hard, helping others and speaking Welsh. Children may also lose points for inappropriate behaviour, being off task and hurting others. The response from children has been overwhelmingly positive. Each class will decide on their own rewards for receiving a given number of Dojo points.
