Just a quick remainder that the children’s photos will be taken tomorrow morning.
Here is a link to book your Parents Evening times.
Just a remainder that the Book Fair is on today, Tuesday and Wednesday.
From the discussions with the children the idea of having a paper bag decorated was put forward. This would be a great alternative to a box.
The charity we are collecting for is in Brighton and called ‘Off the Fence’ – their work is to support homeless people.
The kinds of things that they say would be especially appreciated are:
Milk (UHT), Sugar; long life juices, tins of beans, soup, vegetables, spaghetti; pasta sauces; tinned sponge pudding, rice pudding or fruit; tea bags, coffee; packet mashed potato; rice; dried pasta; tinned meat or fish; jars of jam, marmalade; biscuits; toiletries (no sprays please); toilet rolls; towels, blankets or washing tablets.
Could you check the ‘Best Before’ dates please.
Paddy has also asked for this to go out to you all.
Have a lovely weekend.
There will be no maths homework this week.
Please could your child or children decorate a box with a harvest festival theme to carry their items in.
In the box can they please include a message which maybe thanks God or the farmers for the harvest time. Another suggestion could be asking God to help the homeless.
It is great to see the children so enthusiastic about sharing what they have made or what they have found out about their families or friends concerning the Second World War.
Michelle has completed some lovely ‘homework’ about the wartime exploits of Frankie and Emily’s great grandad John Daniel Dwyer, who served in the RAF.
It was great again to have a cake. This time it was a recipe from wartime USA made by Masha and family. It says it is unlike any other chocolate cake. Instead of being smothered in icing or ganache, it is generously coated in thick chocolate custard. It proved extremely popular like yesterday’s cake.
Alfie brought in some artwork of British fighter planes and Lexi used paint pens to create a Spitfire inspired picture.
We are going to undertake two science investigations to do with light this week.
The first one is to identify which objects are transparent, translucent or opaque.
The other investigation is to see which material is best for using as a blackout to help prevent the German bombers locating Grandpa’s house.
On Friday a group of children are going to perform their Rosh Hashanah assembly to Foxes and Year 6.
Thank you to Charlie for the lovely Rosh Hashanah cake she brought in today.
