What a lovely end to the week!

Year 4 have enjoyed a fantastic day at Studland Beach, where they learned about how arches and stacks are made and about the habitats of the sand dunes. The afternoon was spent running around the grounds of Leeson House, orienteering! (See gallery for some more pictures.) Year 3, meanwhile, enjoyed their quiet day with Mrs Brooking, Mr Cuff and Miss Turnbull!

Happy Half-term!

We are looking forward to hearing all about the children’s trip to France, after the half-term holiday. We have finished the week with a super Year 3 day at Carymoor (see gallery for pics). The remaining Year 4 children had a fun day too with Mrs Brooking, Mr Cuff and Mrs Jeffery. Enjoy your break and let’s hope the sun shines!

Violin lessons are progressing well

We are really enjoying our Thursday morning violin lessons with Mrs Ely and here are a few photos of us all playing. We have already been playing tunes using the four strings (G, D, A and E) and this week put together a medley entitled ‘Cheesecake’, which included lots of musical texture!

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!
