Happy New Year from Melissa class.
We have made a very enthusiastic start to the new school term.
As it is New Year we have been taking about what we would like to get better at during the school year.
We will let you know how we get on!
Well done to everyone in Melissa class for a positive start to a new school term.
Melissa class had their last swimming session on Friday 11th January. It has been a pleasure to see how the children have developed their skills and confidence in the water during this short space of time. Keep practicing your skills!
A very big thank you to the parents who have so generously given their time to help with swimming. This makes a huge difference to the children and their progress.
You will find a copy of the homework for the week under the Homework star. This will be given out on a Tuesday and collected on a Monday. Spelling test will take place on a Monday.
If children need help with their homework or wish to do their homework at school they can come to Melissa class at 12.45 on a Wednesday lunch time.
Across the school children joined their House groups and made a range of decorations for the classes. Parents and younger siblings were invited to join us for this activity.
The decorations will be up ready for the Christmas Fair on Friday.
Wednesday 21st November
We have been discussing healthy and unhealthy food. There were some things we agreed about but others we did not!
We have a weekly class assembly. Each week two children are asked to help place the bible, cross and candle on the table. As they do this the class thinks about what these items signify; bible- God, cross-Jesus and the candle the Holy Spirit.
The children listen to a bible story and then there is time for discussion and reflection linked to the story.
The whole school went to St Andrews Church to take part in a Remembrance service for one of those who lost their life in the First World War.
The behaviour of the children was excellent, showing respect for the occasion.
We were visited by Ryan Crouch, Rio Paralympian on Thursday 27th September. Ryan is a swimmer who competed in the Rio Paralympics. He spoke to us about his experiences in Rio and his journey to get there.
The children asked Ryan a range of questions about his life and training.
Ryan then worked with each class doing stretches and exercises that he uses in training and before swimming.
