Hot weather

I forgot to mention that from tomorrow, Tuesday 18th April, the pupils will be able to come to school in their PE uniform, due to the high temperatures which we are experiencing. If there is any change to the weather we will go back to the ordinary school uniform and we will let you know if this happens.

Please also ensure that your child has a bottle of water. These can be refilled here at school during the day.

On particularly hot days the pupils will not go outside to play but will have activities to do in their classroom.

Many thanks, Miss Ali

Welcome back!

Hello Everyone,

I hope you had a really great two weeks!

Thank you for your child´s diary. I haven´t had a close look at them yet but am really looking forward to doing so. If your child didn´t manage to finish the diary please don´t worry. I am happy to receive them up until Friday.

Here are the spellings for next week´s test, on Monday 24th April:

enjoyment, pavement, payment, excitement, agreement, improvement, amazement, moment, punishment, entertainment

There are only ten spellings this week as they are a bit more difficult!

Our focus in computing this half term is using Microsoft Word. If you get a chance, please help your child produce pieces of writing using Word at home - if you have access to it!

It is lovely to see all of the pupils in 2A once again and I´m hoping for an exciting and interesting term with them. I will be really focussing on making sure that they all work really hard and get their tasks finished in the time given. We are also aiming to speak just English during the lessons when I am teaching them. 

Please don´t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to speak to me.

Many thanks, Miss Ali

Holiday homework

Dear all,

What a shame we missed a day of school yesterday! The school is now smoke-free!

The notas appointments with the parents I wanted to see will be at the same time on Monday 17th April. If anyone else would like to come and see me about their child´s notas please make an appointment through the office.

Holiday Homework

  • Revise the spellings we have done ready for a super test on Monday 17th April.
  • Revise the multiplication tables and their division facts for the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 11 times tables. Test on Friday 21st April.
  • Write a holiday diary, telling me about what you have done everyday. Include pictures and lots of interesting vocabulary! Two pirate points for the best diaries!

We will have the mental maths test and the spelling test today. 

I hope you all have a really wonderful Easter Holiday. I´m off to England for a week to see my family but will be looking forward to seeing everyone again on Monday 17th April.

Many thanks for all your support and help this term. It is very much appreciated.

Homework for week beginning 20th March 2017

Dear Everyone,

Our words for next week´s spelling test are:

badge, bridge, badger, dodge, fudge, budge, edge, ledge, wedge, hedge, sledge, lodge

We will work on time again for our mental maths test on Friday 24th March. Many of the children need to continue to learn these. I have put the clock tool on Active Learn and shown the pupils how to use it to practise telling the time. 

We have lots of practices this week for the show. The costumes need to be in school by Friday.

TEFL homework is to write five sentences, using conjunctions, to describe themselves. Conjunctions are and, because, but, so, yet, nor, or. For example, My eyes are blue but my sister´s are brown. This homework is due in on Thursday 30th March and needs to be done in the children´s TEFL books which they will bring home.

Many thanks, Miss Ali

Spellings to learn

Dear all,

I hope you´ve had a chance to look at the lovely photos of the excursion!

The spellings for next week are:

hopeless, painless, careless, useless, harmless, fearless, unless, tasteless, breathless, endless, homeless, toothless, where, were and went.

The suffix ´less´ means 'without'. So, for example, ´painless' means without pain.

The pupils are working hard on the dance for the show - we managed to get it finished today which was great! It now just needs a bit of tidying up and adding some ´twinkly' music!

One of the pupils mentioned that there was a problem getting a hat for the wood cutter´s costume. One of these types would be ok and they seem to be available in Chinese shops:
