Evening everyone!No more tests!We have finished and I have to say the children have done very well.They were all very calm,especially during the one on Friday when we were doing it on the ipads. Please do remember that the tests are just a snapshot on the day of how your child is progressing and is not the full picture by any means.We all have bad days!
English homework this week is Spellodrome and reading.We have won the school trophy for the most points a couple of weeks ago and I'd like to see it back on my desk!
Polite request-please can children be issued with a snack in the morning for break times if they are not having it through school.We have cups now for our thirsty workers but a bite to eat of a healthy snack helps sustain concentration till lunchtime.Many thanks.
No homework as such today,please go on spellodrome and TTrockstars.I think we've earned it!Can I just say a huge thank you for the beautiful flowers.I honestly didn't realise they were from the parents!Silly me!Thanks very much for your support,i really appreciate it.Just in case you haven't seen it yet,here's the link....https://www.leaderlive.co.uk/news/17557551.pupils-wow-parents-with-wonderful-performance-at-theatr-clwyd/What amazing children!

Please can the children write a short story about an adventure with the gorilla based on our book, 'Gorilla' by Anthony Browne.They can change the animal completely if they wish.Homework is stuck in their books.
Language will be given on a Monday and is due in on Wednesday.
Maths is given on a Thursday and is due in on a Monday.
We have been doing addition this week-the compact method in columns.The paper shows the 10 being carried on top but I have taught them to put it underneath the answer,although it doesn't really matter as long as they remember to add it!
PARTY AFTERNOON!!FRIDAY 18th January.
The children can come in their own clothes tomorrow.We have voted and all decided that board games and party games are how they would like to celebrate being awesome individuals!!I'm looking forward to it too!
There is no homework on paper this week.Please access Spellodrome and TTRockstars for times table and spelling practise.Thank you.
Happy new year!Welcome back everyone.The children are settling down nicely and have enjoyed sharing their adventures over xmas.We had an assembly yesterday reminding children of our routines and expectations which are the same as last term.However,I had quite a few children a little confused this morning about points for Spellodrome.They need 500 points,not 5000 at the end of the week which runs Monday to Monday.They have lots of opportunities to access Spellodrome during the week so this is a very achievable target.Please come and ask if you need clarification on anything.We’re here to help.😀Many thanks.
Friday 21st December

English homework is on nouns!Please return by Wednesday. Spellodrome is up and running and your child's log in details are in the front of their reading logs.Spelling lists have been set.Please try and do 10 minutes 3 times a week.Thank you.
We've had a busy day!Its been very windy so instead of going outside, we did some welsh country dancing in the hall.It was great fun.Throughout the last 2 weeks we have been putting some dance moves to our english and maths lessons to get the children up on their feet.Also, we have been watching and discussing the Zen Den, Cosmic kids. It is Mindfulness for children.It is an excellent way of teaching how to recharge batteries, discussing our feelings and dealing with thoughts, be they positive or negative. The children are enjoying it very much and are benefiting hugely from this circle time as they begin their year 3 journey and get used to change.Please rest assured that you will be contacted quickly if your child is unsettled, although I have to say all are very smiley at the moment.Lucky us!See you in the morning.
Could all homework books please be covered in sticky back plastic or wrapping paper and labelled. Thank you.
Your homework tonight is more work on counting in 10s/100s.
