Unfortunately, Miss Prothero was unable to be a part of our Victorian Day today. She would like to have a Victorian School morning (in role) with her class at another time, when she returns to school - this would not require the children to dress up again and they will be informed when this is planned to take place.
Thursday 22nd March
'Easter Cracked' - our coach will pick us up from the Church at 3.00pm, with the aim of arriving back at school by 3:15pm. However, we may be delayed by traffic at this time, so please bear this in mind when collecting your child after school.
Some of the recent assessment papers we have completed have been sent home - the children may keep these. They have been marked in class. We feel that they are useful to share with you so that you can see the areas children still need to work on. The children may like to reattempt some of the questions they got wrong - we are happy to mark these.
Attached below is a copy of the Reading Texts that were used for the Reading Paper - we have discussed the answers with the children but if you wish to query anything, please do come and speak with us.
New Revision Site - Rising Stars
Thank you for those who have been sharing their experiences. There seem to have been some problems with the apostrophe work this week - rising stars not accepting answers which are seemingly correct. Teachers are happy to check these answers with children if they wish to write them down and bring them in. As well as this, attached below is a copy of the 'Technical Information' given by the site with regards to the settings required to use the site effectively.

Our class page is an area to inform you of things we are doing in class, exhibit work we're really proud of, and to link you to helpful websites for carrying it all on at home.
Homework is handed out on a Friday and due in on a Wednesday.
Spellings are handed out on a Friday and tested the following Friday.
If possible, all homework will be made available on our class page. There may be exceptions if handing out photocopied documents.
