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馃槉

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

Assembly clothes and homework

Dear Everyone,

I hope you had an enjoyable Canary Day. Our day here in school on Monday was good fun. The children all enjoyed themselves but it was such a shame about the weather.

Last week we had a great trip to Castillo de la Luz. We all learnt a lot about the castle and about the art work of Mart铆n Chirino. It was really interesting!

I am going to do the spelling test on Monday. We just haven´t had time to do it this week!

We are now busy working on our assembly. The children need to learn their words at home please. I would like them to know them without the paper from Monday - and the song words.

Costumes - You will see what your child is doing on the back of the script. I would like the Anglo-Saxons to wear the colours brown, yellow or orange. This just needs to be trousers and t-shirts or long skirts for the girls. If you would like to add accessories, according to the character your child is playing, that would be great! The Vikings can wear the colours blue, purple or pink. Again, trousers and t-shirts will be fine. We will be making shields for them to use. We will need the costumes by Wednesday 7th June - at the latest!

Many thanks, Miss Ali

Homework Week Beginning 22/5/17 etc

Hello Everyone,

Tomorrow we´re off to Castillo de la Luz to see Martin Chirino´s artwork. The children have enjoyed finding out about his sculptures and trying to design some of their own. Paula S´s Mum and Sof铆a´s Dad will be helping us with the excursion.

We have a student this week who is helping us in the classroom. Her name is Patricia and she is one of our 6th Form students here at Canterbury.

Homework - Week Beginning 22/5/17


The pupils need to know the difference between these words which sound very similar.


Mental maths - for test on Friday 26th May. Changing digital to analogue times. For example: 10.25 = 25 past 10, 9.55 = 5 to 10 etc.
Maths Sheet - As for last week - to be handed in by Friday 2nd June.


As for last week - to be handed in by Thursday 1st June.

Canary Day - Tuesday 30th May 2017

The pupils can bring up to €2 in to spend on Canary Day. Parents are welcome to come and watch the dances which all the pupils have been practising. The gate will be open for parking from 11.30 and the dancing will begin at 11.45 until about 12.30. We hope you can come!

Many thanks, Miss Ali
