I have spent some time reflecting this week on the progress the children have made since September. It has been such a privilege to see them mature and develop in to their life in the juniors. I am so incredibly proud of them all. This week has absolutely flown by and I sit here typing this feeling shocked that it is only one week to go until we break up for Christmas! We had a lovely assembly at the start of this week discussing the second week of advent and a beautiful advent service this morning before school in the hall. There will be another one next Friday at 8.15am - please come along if you can. We also had a very special treat today - watching the Reception nativity! It was wonderful.
Can I please remind you that it is the KS2 Advent Service on the 19th December at 2.30pm over at Church. Year 3 have the special job of acting out the Christmas story and they have been working super hard during rehearsals. I look forward to hopefully seeing you there.
In Maths this week we have been looking at fractions - recognising them as equal parts of a whole.
In English we have all now completed our STAR Reading tests and now have ZPDs. Everybody has done brilliantly - well done Year 3.
In Science we have been testing magnet strength and sorting magnetic and non magnetic materials.
In History we learnt about Skara Brae and started to create a news report on its discovery.
Award winners this week are:
No homework this week! Please could I ask, If possible, for the children to bring in a 2 litre (empty) milk bottle for Tuesday. We actually only need 15 altogether so please don’t worry if this isn’t possible.
Have a lovely weekend.
