                This week began with a values assembly all about RESPECT; respect
                for yourself, for others and for the environment. It was based on the
                tale of a frog called Freddy who had a lesson to learn with the help
                of his friends. The children loved it and were very good at
                suggesting what Freddy had done wrong, how he felt and what he
                should have done.

Class 1 have been busy creating puppets for their puppet theatre and writing
play-scripts based on the story of The Three Little Pigs. They have also started their
topic of the Great Fire of London and I look forward to seeing some exciting
accounts and pictures.

Class 2 have been archaeologists and discovering a little about who the Vikings
were as part of their class topic for this term. They were using problem-solving
skills to explore a burial mound and piece together any information that would
help them describe, explain and evaluate their findings.

Julie Fryer, our school adviser came into school on Thursday to conduct some joint
teaching and learning observations with me in both classes. We talked to the
children about their learning and how they know what they are doing and how to
get better.

May I remind parents and indeed grandparents that we’d love to see you in school
at any time, particularly if you have a skill you could share with the children. We
always welcome adults who can read to or with the children, play maths board
games or do a bit of ICT.

                       HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND! Ms Cad :)
