What a fantastic effort everyone made in the Sponsored swim this week.  We were very impressed!

Here’s what’s coming up this week:-

Sponsored swim: A reminder that money collected should be handed in by Monday 2nd July. There will be no swimming for Miss Green’s class this week due to transition.

Numeracy: This will be our final week of Rainbow targets and times tables.

Literacy: We will be finishing our year four reports.

Art: We will continue looking at patterns based on the work of Goldsworthy and will have a go at some printing based on this.

Homework: We would love you to have a go at some Goldsworthy inspired art in the environment.  Use the ideas you have seen in class and take some photos to add to your Google Drive.

Magical Day in the Park:

Miss Golland and Miss Green are desperate for a helper to accompany them on their trip next week.

The children will need to bring their lunch to school as normal, we will have a snack in the park and return to school for lunch.  A reminder that children need a named water bottle, sunhat and should have applied suncream. Don’t forget to check the weather to see if a waterproof is needed!

Wednesday – Miss Green

Thursday – Mrs Dowding

Friday – Miss Golland

Transition:  The children will be telling the year 3s all about year 4 on Monday.  On Friday, they will have the opportunity to visit year 5 to find out all about next year.  Miss Golland’s class will visit year 5 at a later date.

The juniors will find out their class teachers on Monday 9th July.

Wow!  We can’t believe how quickly this year has gone!

Many Thanks

Lower Junior Sports Day

House Sports Day!

Thursday 21st June is the Lower Junior sport afternoon!  

Children can come to school wearing their sports kit instead of school uniform.

Children can try and wear something in the colour of their house:

Normans = Blue

Saxons = Red

Tudors = Yellow

Stuarts = Green

We are hoping for sunny weather for the afternoon so please put sunscreen on your child before they come to school. It would also be useful to bring some in so that they can re-apply cream at lunchtime too.  A hat and a water bottle will be needed as well.

The House sports will start at 1.00pm in the main field.

You are welcome to join us for the event and follow your child around the 16 sporting events.  At the end of the afternoon the sprints and shuttle runs will take place and the winning house will be announced!

Good luck everyone!
