Spring Term 2016

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! I hope that you enjoyed the Christmas break with your families and friends. 

Now the new term has started, I cannot emphasise enough, how important it is, that you support your child in the run-up to the SAT's tests in May.

In school, your child will be supported during all the Literacy and Mathematics lessons by Mr Fyfe, Mrs Sanders and myself. We have also engaged the skills of Mrs Nicholls, Mrs Chandler, Mrs Broadhead and Mrs Scott to provide additional booster support for both higher and lower achievers. Some children will also be invited to additional Booster Club sessions before school. However, this effort could be improved, even further, with your support at home.

Your child needs to read aloud for meaning every day at home, from a variety of texts. They also need to know and be able to use their times tables accurately and with speed. I am sure you have read or heard about the importance of this in the National press recently. Your child has received a Comprehension text book from school last term. I would ask that your child completes one exercise each week as part of their homework.

Your child will also receive Mathematics worksheets linked to the learning in class for the week and additional Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation tasks. This learning will support them in preparing for their tests as well as in their transition towards Secondary education.

I am sure that you, like us, want your child to achieve the very best outcomes at the end of this academic year. This will only be achieved in a dedicated partnership between home and school.

Working together, I am confident that your child will achieve their potential.

Yours respectfully,

Christine O'Hara.

Parent Guide to Accelerated Reading

Year 6 and victor

Year 6 and victor  1

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Year Six!  

I am delighted to inform you that our Residential Trip to Grafham Water was very successful, your children were a real credit to you. They all tried the different activities and were very courageous.

They followed the rule of "Best" bravery/encouragement/safety and teamwork. The instructors were pleased with their positive behaviour and the kindness and caring that they showed towards each other. This positive attitude bodes well for our future together.

We have returned to the beginning of the term by leading the whole school in a Welcome Mass. We will also be sharing our experiences in an assembly on the 22nd of September.

Our main theme for this term will be based around the text, "Goodnight Mr Tom." We will be linking this to our History learning about the Second World War and our Geography learning about Grafham Water.

The children have received a timetable for this term. Your child has also been given a Reading Record Book. I cannot stress strongly enough how important it is for your child to read to an adult every day. Regular reading significantly improves their chances of success when sitting SATs at the end of the year. Please read with your child every day and sign the record book on a regular basis. This will support your child's reading in school.

Homework will be given on a Wednesday to be returned on Tuesday. Some homework will involve own research or a verbal presentation. Your child will also be given some Maths learning and homework on the computer. Please inform me if your child does not have access to a computer at home.

PE will take place on Monday and Friday each week. Children will need indoor and outdoor kit. Earrings must be removed for PE/Games lessons.

We will be voting in a new School Council, Worship Council, Play Leaders, Office Duty, Guinea Pig Duty, and Peer Mediators this week. These additional responsibilities develop your child's sense of community and demonstrate independence skills.

I look forward to working with you to support your child's learning journey.

Yours respectfully,

Mrs Christine O'Hara.

IMPORTANT DATES THIS TERM

 

 ALL SAINTS

(Celebrated on Sunday 1st November)

We celebrate the lives of special and ordinary people who have responded to God’s invitation to love.

 

THE COMMEMORATION OF ALL THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED (ALL SOULS)

(2nd November)

Today and throughout the rest of November we pray for those who have died.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. 

May they rest in peace. Amen.

 

OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING OF THE UNIVERSE

(22nd November)

 

ADVENT

(Begins 29th November)

Advent means ‘coming’. We think of the coming of Jesus when he was born but we also think of his promise that he would come again at the end of time. It is a time of waiting and preparing. It is only in the last week of Advent that we focus upon the events to be celebrated at Christmas.

 

THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

(8 December)

This feast marks the first stage of the existence of Mary, the mother of Jesus. She was ‘full of grace’ from the very beginning and 

co-operated with God throughout her life.

 

CHRISTMAS DAY, THE NATIVITY OF THE LORD

(25 December)

On this day we begin our celebration of the birth of Christ.
