Red Clothes Day

Enjoying Red Clothes Day!

Summer homework suggestions

Dear Everyone,

Here are some suggestions for homework for your child over the Summer Holiday:

  • Write a diary - a little bit of English writing every day about what your child has been doing. 
  • Go through the spellings which we have learnt over the last year, ensuring that your child still knows how to spell them! If your child finds handwriting a bit difficult then they can practise handwriting the spelling words as well.
  • Take every opportunity to speak in English. 
  • Watch the television and films in English.

  • Go through all the activities on Active Learn - I have made sure that everything from this year is available to all of the children.
  • Practise the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 and 11 times tables.
  • Practise telling the time - analogue and digital.
Websites to explore:
But most of all ... have lots and lots of fun!

End of term/Fin de curso

Hello everyone,

Just a few things to mention about the end of term.

If your child didn´t bring in a big, strong bag today to take their books home in, please bring one tomorrow.

Also, tomorrow the children do not need to wear their uniforms - 'ropa de la calle'! And they will also need to bring in some biscuits, cake, crisps or something similar for a little party. They can also bring in a game to play.

Ha sido un placer enseñar sus niños desde enero. Todos son muy buenos y hemos pasado muy bien juntos. Que tengan mucha suerte en tercero y sigan trabajando con ganas y entusiasmo.

Muchisimas gracias a todos ustedes por apoyarme durante este tiempo. Me ha gustado concocerles.

¡Que tengan un verano lleno de felicidad y 'relax'!

Con mucho cariño, Miss Ali

Dear Everyone,

I am so sorry - I´ve just realised that I still have the reports sat on my desk! I do apologise! I will send them home on Monday.

Have a great weekend.

Homework and end of term arrangements

Dear Everyone,

We won´t be having a mental maths test on Friday as I am doing the maths assessments this week with the class.

The spellings for Monday 26th June are:

Germany, gem, gentle, giraffe, germ, general, geography, angel, danger, emergency, stranger, vegetable

This will be our last test of the year.

Also on Monday 26th June we have our Red Nose Day. The children will need to come to school dressed in as much red as possible. They will do a sponsored walk around the school - letters to follow soon. We will also be doing some Red Nose Day activities and would like each child to bring a small water bottle. We will use these to make some funny Red Nose Day people. If your child would like to bring anything in from home to decorate the bottle it would be great! We´ve got the usual card, sugar paper etc. 

Our second Parents´Evening is also on Monday 26th June. I have got thirteen appointments booked solidly from 4.00 pm through until 6.00 pm. Your child´s work will be outside the classroom for you to look at before the appointment. I will try very hard to keep on time but please be patient if you have to wait. I apologise in advance!

On Tuesday 27th June we have our Sports' Day. The children will need to come to school in their house team colours. We´ve got a fun morning of races lined up for them.

On Wednesday 28th June the winning house team, those who´ve got the most pirate points, will be going on their trip to the park. 

Thursday 29th June is our Leavers´Assembly - we will all be crying! This is also our last day with the children! 

I will write again with suggestions for Summer Holiday Homework next week.

Many thanks, Miss Ali😊

Notas and homework

Dear Everyone

It was great to see so many of you yesterday evening. I really enjoyed talking to you about your child and their progress. I will miss them as a class! I look forward to speaking to everyone else on the 26th of June.

The reports will be sent out on June 23rd - I thought it was the 19th but it is actually the 23rd.

Next year the third grade teachers will be Miss Vivienne, Mr Peter and myself. I´m really looking forward to having a group of 2A pupils in my next class and being involved with the same children again across the year group. The pupils will be told which class they are in on their first day back in September. There are often changes through the Summer which means it is difficult for us to tell them which class they are going to be in before the end of this term.


Spellings for the test on 19/6/17

Every, everybody, even, great, break, steak, pretty, beautiful, after, fast, last, past, father, class, grass, pass, plant, path, bath and Christmas!

Mental Maths for the test on 16/6/17

Convert analogue times to digit.

Maths Sheet

This will be sent home in the next few days. To be completed and returned to school by Friday 23rd June.

TEFL Homework

Please write five sentences in the present tense and then write them in the past tense and the future tense. For example:

I cook pancakes every day.
I cooked pancakes every day.
I will cook pancakes every day.

To be completed in the pupils´ TEFL books by Thursday 22nd June. 

Many thanks to you all,

Miss Ali

Assembly and homework

Hello Everyone,

Thank you all so much for your wonderful support for our assembly today. It was fantastic to see so many of you there. I thought that the children did really, really well. I am extremely proud of them! I hope you enjoyed watching it.

I forgot to put the spellings on the blog for Monday´s test. Here they are just in case you haven´t seen them in your child´s spelling book:

Door, floor, poor, because, find, kind, mind, behind, child, children, wild, climb, most, only, both, old, cold, gold, hold, told.

The maths for next week´s mental maths test will be converting analogue times to digital times. For example: twenty past ten = 10.20, quarter to 5 = 4.45, five to eight = 7.55, quarter past 2 = 2.15 etc.

I have to apologise for not hearing everyone read this week. We have spent a lot of time preparing for our assembly. Next week should be back to normal!

I look forward to seeing you all at our parents´ evenings.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Many thanks, Miss Ali
