'Success for all, in all we do'

Great Gymnastics

We have been very busy in our PE lessons this week.  Take a look at the pictures of the different balances we learned about.

Unique Competition

Your doodled cover could be printed in the next Tom Gates book!

All winners will win a signed book, signed print, limited edition badge AND a bag of goodies. The overall winner will also receive a Skype visit from Liz Pichon to their school!

Doodled entries need to:

  • Have the words TOM GATES on them
  • Include characters from the books (Tom, Delia, Marcus, etc).

Home Learning

We have again set home learning to go live at 4pm on Friday. It is due on Wednesday morning by 08:50. 

Handwriting Revision:

We continue to reward children with pen licences when their cursive handwriting is consistent, attractive and accurate.  This week, we have given out 3 new licences and the children have been informed in class and celebrated in the class stream in Google Classroom stream.

We also encourage children to revise their letter letter sizes, letter formation and joins in their own time and recommend they use the Year 5 & 6 statutory spelling words to help them refresh their recall of these words at the same time.
