Happy Half Term!

Footie Footie 2

Elm Class have finished the week with a lovely afternoon of Footie for Dorset in the autumn sunshine. We hope everyone has a fantastic half term. If you have the opportunity, please collect and bring in card (etc.) for making Roman shields in the following weeks.

A lovely (French) Harvest Service

On Friday 5th October, the week finished with a lovely Harvest Service in the church. Here is a picture of Elm Class singing their French harvest song, courtesy of Madame Ferguson, to the tune of ‘Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’.

Welcome to the Autumn Term

Elm Class have been working hard and the summer holidays are a distant dream away….!

Our exciting topic this term is all about the Romans; if you have any books or artefacts at home which your child would like to bring in, that would be great.

In Elm Class, we only check the reading record books regularly each Thursday, so if you have an important message, please contact the school office rather than writing it in the book – thank you.

Reading Rewards

Reading rewards for the Autumn Term 2018

We continue to encourage the children to read at home and to have their book signed by an adult at least 3 times per week. For every 4 weeks that your child has reached the home reading target, they can choose a small reward. There are lots of goodies on offer.

Reading record books are checked every Thursday for our records. We will remind the children to give in their books, but you can help at home by prompting the children before school on Thursday mornings – thank you. This should help develop independence as the year progresses.

Let us know if you have read a really good book!
