It's half term. See you all on Monday 3 June

We hope you have had a restful two weeks off! We hope you’re feeling curious about our new module as it requires an inquisitive attitude and the ability to problem solve.

What springs to mind when you hear the word inventions? What makes a person an inventor? Have you ever seen any fantastic inventions that you were just simply dazzled by?

I hope the curiosity is already starting to bubble and the cogs in your brain have already started to turn as we begin our exciting new module...

You will be stretching your resilient learning muscle as we ask design inventions and keep changing and developing our designs as we go.

Our golden thread will be: How do we learn from our mistakes?
We will discuss and develop our understanding of mistakes and how making mistakes can be a great way to learn new things. Mistakes should be seen as an opportunity to develop further and keep on improving!


A few routine reminders:

Learning Journals should be in school everyday as new information about reading books, trips, letters, homework and upcoming events will be added throughout the week.

So we can get our learning off to a quick start, please make sure your PE kit is in school everyday (take a look at our prospectus to double check what you need). Each item should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Please remember to label your child's uniform, water bottle and PE kit. PE kits will be sent home each week to be washed and returned on Monday. Year 5 should arrive at school between 08.50 and 09.00.
