A polite reminder that we request you to read with your child at least once per week and sign their 'Reading Record'. 
 
Your child will receive weekly spellings these will usually be handed out on a Friday and tested the following Wednesday although this may change at times. 
 
Regular short periods of practise of spellings will ensure the spelling rules and patterns are embedded. A variety of methods including Spellodrome will assist with this Spelling learning. Please be aware if your child is playing on Spellodrome live it may not be their current spelling list. 
 
During the first half of Spring term pupil was given a laminated book mark. This should help to assist you with questions you may ask your child when reading. They will help check their understanding of the text.

This term our indoor PE is gymnastics - our first week we tried out lots of different balances... 
Some of our balances - well done girls!
Great collaborative balance girls! 
The boys worked hard together to create this supportive balance. 
We can see you Mrs Herlihy... 
Using their cheer leading poses to support their learning! 
What a tricky balance-very impressive! 
We have been researching Mary Anning a famous fossil hunter! 
Exploring the Minecraft room at St Neots Football Club. 
The challenge was a circular balance - well done boys. 
The girls were investigation to find out which utensil was best adapted for which food source. 
Enjoying using the Minecraft room at St Neots Football Club. 
Another great take on a circular balance. 
This adaptation experiment was linked to our learning about Charles Darwin and his famous voyages on HMS Belfast. 
Great shared reading girls! 
Look at our new sofa - a great place to come and read!
Year Six took up the challenge of supporting Year Two with their reading skills- I was very impressed with their responsible and mature attitude. 
During our Science unit:Evolution and inheritance we used clay and shells to make fossil imprints which we later filled with Plaster of Paris to make our very own fossils. We even managed to give it a go with a crabs claw!
