Welcome back Owls!
We do hope that you all had a great holiday and that you were able to get out and about even though the weather was a bit dismal.
P.E. will continue to be on a Tuesday and Wednesday this term. On a Tuesday, when we will continue developing our football skills with Dauntsey’s Outreach, you will be required to come to school in your outdoor P.E. kit. Remember to bring your school uniform and shoes with you to change into afterwards. We will have tag rugby on a Wednesday afternoon with Mrs. Marshall and Mr. Herring. There will be a football tournament on Saturday 21st March at Dauntsey’s School.
Weekly spellings will be given out on a Monday, to be tested the following Monday. There will also be a short written exercise linked to your spellings, which will need to be handed in on a Monday. Try to look at your spellings every day. 10 minutes every day is more beneficial than an hour on a Sunday evening.
(Heads up for next term - remember we will be holding our second Spelling Bee at the start of Term 5 so keep practising your words – Year 5/6 word list this time!)
For Year 6, SPaG homework will be given out on a Tuesday to be returned the following Monday. Year 5 will have a Geography project to complete this term. This is due to be handed in on Tuesday 31st March. Remember to do a piece of work each week.
Maths homework will be given out on Fridays to be completed and returned by the following Thursdays.
We are all reading more regularly – well done and please keep this up. Please remember to read each day to an adult so that you can collect your air miles and travel the globe. Certificates are handed out as each stage is completed.
On Thursday 5th March, it is World Book Day and this year we are sharing our favourite books and holding a reading breakfast from 8:30am onwards. Do join us for that. On Monday 16th March, we will be having a talk from the PSO on internet safety.
Year 6 are invited to continue attending SATs revision sessions after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 4pm. The focus on a Tuesday is SPAG and on a Thursday it is Maths.
We are looking forward to seeing you all back in school on Monday 24th February.
Mrs Groves, Mrs Leese and Mrs Marshall
