Welcome to Week 2! Please see a few notes and reminders as we head into another busy term!
Please check you have all the stationery you need at school every day. Pencils, pens and glue sticks are all in short supply and a lot of time can be wasted searching and sharpening equipment instead of working. A note went home in the home learning books last week highlighting stationery that is needed for your child.
It has been great to see the improvement with the children's speed and accuracy of their basic facts over the last term. Class teachers will continue to test the children on their maths brick each week if they feel they are ready to move on to the next brick.
Could you please send along a box of tissues for the children to use in class. We all seem to be running short of tissues through these winter months. Thank you.
This term we will be having our annual poetry competition. This week the children need to choose a poem that they will be working on learning by memory in class and practising at home. Our in class competitions will be early in week 5 with the Year 3 & 4 final on . Parents are welcome to attend.

Enjoy the week,
Jane, Trish, Fiona, Julie and Adela
