Class 2 News

 Homework:  Practise interviewing techniques on members of your family.  Remember to listen attentively and ask follow-up questions.

Year 6 Guided Reading:  Homework due for Wednesday October 9th is to write a review of your favourite book.  It must include the title and author and you must consider the following:

  • Is it fact or fiction?
  • Are there illustrations and are they effective? Do they help you enjoy the book?
  • Are there chapters, an index, a glossary or a contents page?
  • What did I enjoy about the book?
  • What could be improved?
  • Would I recommend it to anyone?

Football Tournament:  On Tuesday 2nd October we are taking a team to this tournament at Hanley Castle High School from 4.00 – 6.00 pm.  If your child has been picked for the team a slip is attached; please sign and return this on Monday.  You will need to arrange for your child to be transported to the high school for 3.45 pm and collect them afterwards.  We will provide a football kit but they will need their own boots / trainers and shin pads.

 After School Care Club:  If you have not already paid for the October sessions, please do so now. If you want to book any additional sessions, there are forms in the yellow file at the Parent Information Point.

Art Project:  We are very excited to be making ceramic flowers with Eastnor Pottery when they visit us for a workshop on Tuesday 2nd October.  Please could we remind parents and grandparents that we really need them to come along in the afternoon to make a ceramic flower for our installation.  Don’t worry if you feel you don’t have the artistic flair; plenty of help will be available!  We want a glorious display of flowers which will represent our school for many years to come.

Flu Immunisations, Years 1 to 5:  If you have not yet returned the blue forms that were sent out last Friday please do so as soon as possible.  If you do not want your child to be immunised there is a section on the form to record this.
