Welcome to Tiger Class
After a summer seemed to absolutely fly, it is great to be back with the children and they have hit the ground running. They have all made a fantastic start back, getting straight back into the routine needed for us to do some fantastic learning. Homework this year will be set on a Wednesday and is expected back on a Monday.
On Monday's the children will be going swimming, please ensure that they have their full kit otherwise they will be missing out. PE will be on Friday afternoon and their kits should be kept in school until the half/end of terms.
Children have to read a minimum of four times a week, please sign make sure that their reading record it signed so it can be monitored in school.
As I hope you all know from last year, if you have any problems or queries please come and speak to me.
I am looking forward to another exciting year!
Thank you for you continued support,
On Friday, Tigers raised money for the endangered animal fund in school. They played against each other in a close game of Kick-cricket. All the children enjoyed it. Thank you for bringing in your donations.
The Football Development Programme
Tiger's had the the The Football Development Programme in today, they deliver sessions that link football to the curriculum. Today the children were focusing on maths. After the maths session, the children had a practical football activity where they focused on dribbling skills and then played some small sided games.
As a starter to our Ancient Greek theme that we are covering in the Autumn term, the children took part in an archaeological dig in our school grounds. The children were on the hunt for artefacts from Ancient Greek times and used their tools to carefully extract the artefacts from the ground. It was a very muddy a fair, but the children seemed to thoroughly enjoy the afternoon. The following week, we looked in detail about what the artefacts were and what they might have been used for.
