Dear Children, Parents and Carers,


What a great first week back.  We have enjoyed some really powerful drama sessions introducing The Great Fire of London and what it may have been like living in Pudding Lane in 1666. This resulted in all children producing a great quality extended piece of writing which they were, quite rightly, proud of.


In PE we continued developing our tennis skills as part of our unit on key skill development.


Outdoor learning on Wednesday gave us an opportunity to plant the bean plants that we have been growing. It’s great to hear how yours are getting on at home.  Let’s hope the frosts aren’t too harsh!


In maths we have been adding two digit numbers using partitioning.  Please see the sheet in the Home Learning books to see the method we have been using and ask the children to show you how to do it!


World Book Day – is next Wednesday 2nd March for us. Children are invited to dress up or bring a ‘prop’ that links to the class theme. Yellow Class theme is dragons, castles, knights, kings and queens from stories the children have read.  Children are encouraged to bring their books in too so that they can show us who their character is.  Please don’t feel you need to buy whole costumes, make it as simple as you can. The whole point is to celebrate books and the stories and the information in them. We’ve got lots of great activities planned for the day.


Book Swap Clues – everyone is invited to choose a book from home that they would like to give away. Wrap the book up (newspaper will do), add a label with clues about the book (see below) and bring it in to swap.
Ideas for clues:

1. What sort of book is it? e.g. Adventure, mystery, non-fiction

2. What’s it about? e.g. a family of bears who go on an adventure, 
how to make model boats

3. Where is it set? e.g. South 
America, London, underground

4. What age group is it suitable 
for? KS1, KS2, Adult


Beeston – A final letter is being sent home this week, including a kit list, arrangements for the day and details of our class meeting.


Please remember newsletters are always available on the website.  Our new website will be launched soon, making it even easier to access all class information.
