Spelling Folders

Hi all,

I've asked the children to look through their spelling folders tonight and tomorrow and tidy them up. Some children have run out of space in their folder so they may need help putting 2 sheets into the one pouch to make more room. If they have any other work in the folder it could be taken out and kept at home.

I am going to be looking through their folders in school on Wednesday.

Thanks,
Sarah

Please send the money in on or before the 7th of June.

We are looking for around three parent volunteers from each class. So if you are free that day and would like to come along send myself and Sarah an email.

Bio-Diversity Week Homework

I sent home a worksheet with the children that is the bio-diversity homework for the week. It is due by Friday.

If you could talk to your child about the worksheet and work together to think of changes you could make at home to help the environment.

Assembly - Rachel's Class

Hi all,

Rachel's 2nd class assembly will be this Friday the 17th of May.

The theme is Climate Change.

The children have received their lines on today and have read through them in class. The lines are all quite short but if you could read through them with your child that would be great.

There is an extra drama part that we wrote together today that we are thinking of adding in. Please have your child look over the lyrics of the song.

This is the only homework they will have for the week so it would be great if they could practise their lines and lyrics.


Thanks!
Rachel
