Happy Half Term

Hello Blue Class,

We hope you are enjoying the half term break, having fun and lots of rest after a hardworking first half term in Blue Class. What a great half term it was with lots of excellent learning, a fascinating trip to Chedworth Roman Villa, scarecrow making and brilliant story sacks you created for our Yellow Class friends. Well done to all of you.

When we return to school on Monday, we start a new topic all about Roald Dahl. I wonder which of his stories will be waiting for us, wrapped up for us to open. We all enjoyed Billy and the Minpins so another Roald Dahl story to share and compare will be a treat. Be ready on Monday to do some good thinking and problem solving as we will start off the topic by working on another dilemma based on our new book.

It has been good to see so many of you continuing to work hard at home with daily reading and times table practice. It helps you make great progress. Our new library book box has been a big hit so don't forget to bring any finished books back to school next week so you can choose a new one. We will be revisiting the 3 times table over the next couple of weeks so have a little practice if you can before you come back to school to help develop your fluency and accuracy. If you think you already know the 3 times table by heart, then for an extra challenge practise recalling the corresponding division facts or use your place value knowledge to try calculations such as 30 x 8 and 300 x 9.

Enjoy the rest of the holiday and we look forward to seeing you on Monday with your P.E kit, warm socks ready for when you go to Forest School and big smiles.
