What a difference a month makes!
What a great day we had on Tuesday!
We traveled by coach to Newton Abbot Library and there met Gemma who gave us her time to make us feel welcome, comfortable and confident in exploring and discovering everything the library had to offer.
After learning how the library was organised we set about finding that one perfect book that was in the library just for us.
After this, we wandered up to Newton Abbot College to take part in the Unihoc festival that Mr Patchitt had organised.
Back at school, we carefully arranged all of those specially chosen books into our own class library.
We can’t wait to read them together!
If you don’t have any of the home learning activity sheets, please visit our ‘home learning copies’ tray near the door to our classroom. Home learning this week consists of:
*Maths – adding measures then some column subtraction practice
*spellings to learn
*spelling investigation – double doubles! How many can you find? eg possession
*sentences – conjunction practice – and, but, so, because, Although.
Anti-Bullying Week 2018
Across the country schools will be sharing Anti Bullying Week from 12th – 16th November with this year’s key message of ‘Choose Respect’ providing a focus. Our week will begin with an assembly on Monday morning for children from Years 1-6, which all parents are invited to join us for. Throughout the week, the role that respect and choices that we make have in relation to how we treat others will be explored and discussed. We look forward to seeing you on Monday 12th November at 9.00am.

SCHOOL DINNER MONEY

Please may we remind parents that dinner money needs to be paid on the morning your child requires a dinner, no later than 9.30am – we are not able to supply a dinner to those who have not paid in time – thank you.
What a great opportunity for team work the recent snow brought. At break time, we were able to trek down onto the field and explore our very own arctic environment.
The children (and adults!) had a wonderful time working and playing together, seeing who could build the biggest snow ball and then turn it into a snow man.
Thank you Fiona, in the Kitchen, for the carrots. Without those, our snowmen would have had no noses.
How does a snow man smell without a nose?
Still terrible! Boom Boom!
