As the end of term is approaching, please search your book shelves, under beds and down the backs of sofas for missing library books…our shelves are looking a little sparse. Most books these days cost approximately £5.99, if we have 200 books missing at the end of the year, the library has lost nearly £1000 of stock. We don’t have the funds to replace this quantity, so please have a really good look for our errant books.
From 1st July, the bus will be open after school for returns only. We will be sending reminders home for any outstanding books.
The zoo trip is only one more sleep away. We will be leaving school at 9am. Please make sure you are on time or we will have to leave without you.
Each child needs to bring a lunch which they must carry themselves in a rucksack. If you child has a lunch provided by the school then they must also bring a backpack. The school only provides paper bags and these will break on the journey.
The weather is looking good tomorrow and that means that the children will need plenty of water. The children must also bring a hat and some sun cream.
No one is to bring money as we will not be visiting any shop.
This week and flown by and I can’t believe we only have a few weeks left together. This week has been lots of fun as we have been writing up our instructions to grow a seed. We then applied what we had learnt and wrote instructions for a made up cleaning machine.
In Maths we looked at 2D and 3D shapes. We learnt about lines of symmetry, vertical and horizontal lines and drawing lines accurately in cm and mm. We also learnt the language of vertices, faces and edges to talk about the properties of shape.
We had a wonderful day yesterday in our mixed up groups for MaAPP day. The children came back with great stories and discussions about what they had found out and tried.
Next week we will be learning about bodies. We will be thinking about what our body needs. What do you think your body needs to survive? Leave a comment below with your ideas.
We will be going to the zoo on Friday. The children need to be in school for 9am, as we have to leave straight away to catch our train. We are not sure what the weather looks like so please check on the day. The children need to make sure that they bring a backpack to carry their lunch. Only children that receive free school dinners will have a lunch provided for them.
The Spelling for the week are:
Have a wonderful weekend.

This week has flown by.
In Maths this week we have been learning that a quarter turn is the same as a right angle, therefore a half turn is the same as two right angles and a three-quarter turn is the same as three right angles. We also learned to recognise angles in various 2d shapes as well as knowing that an acute angle is smaller than a right angle and an obtuse angle is larger than a right angle.
In English we have been exploring the book ‘The Flower’. This is a story about a man named Brigg, who lives in a dull and lifeless city. Eventually he comes across some books in a library that say ‘DO NOT TOUCH’. Of course Brigg takes one of the books and smuggles it out of the library. He finds a packet of seeds in the book and plants the seeds, finding that these seeds make a beautiful flower. Devastatingly, the flower gets sucked up by a cleaning system in Brigg’s house. Before reading the story, we made predictions as to what we thought might happen in the story and then gave our opinions on whether we liked the story or not, backing up our opinions with reasons. In addition, we analysed the characters from the story and used our imaginations to write thought bubbles for each character.
Next week’s spellings are:
Have a joyous weekend.
