This week has been National Careers Week, and what a busy week we have had! We’ve been lucky enough to have had some amazing visitors come in to school and talk to us about their fantastic careers. We have had visits from:
We are all feeling very inspired and have lots of ideas about what we would like to do as a career when we grow up!
Here are some photos of our visitors:
Future opera singers?!
We have also done some Literacy work about different careers:
Many thanks to everyone who came in visit us this week!
Your child should have brought home a pack of decodable words to read over the half term break. They also have a book-themed homework task in their blue books. We’d like your child to prepare a short presentation on their favourite book. They are welcome to bring the book along with any pictures/notes on Thursday 2nd March (World Book Day). You can read the full homework task by clicking here. We look forward to watching the presentations.
Your child will be given a letter today about using Lexia Reading Core 5 at home. Here is a copy of the letter. The children use Lexia at school for 4 half hour sessions per week.
It is very important that you do not help your child in any way whilst they are using Lexia. It is designed to be an independent reading intervention and helping your child may result in them accessing activities and school follow-up work that are not best suited to their stage.
Today we were lucky enough to visit a farm….in Russell Scott’s car park! A mobile farm brought their animals for us to hold, stroke and look at. We saw 2 sheep with big horns, 4 rabbits, a guinea pig with very floppy hair and 2 alpacas! We asked lots of questions about the animals and even took some animal selfies! The children were all very well behaved and we had a fabulous time.
