Week in Review and Homework for 2nd November

Welcome back everyone! We hope you all had a wonderful October break!

In Maths we continued to look at symmetry and positional language. In Literacy work we were revising our vowel digraph sounds (such as oi/oy and oo/ew) and we chose games to play to practise these as well as writing sentences and our own story this week.

We were learning about Mary Seacole this week as both part of Our Community topic and for Black History Month. We are starting to look at the sorts of groups that we are part of in our community and we are starting to work towards our JASS award at Yellow level ( which starts this week with a focus on Me and My World.

The week ended with our Halloween party on the 30th of October. I will upload some photos from this in a separate post but congratulations to Dhruv for being selected as a winner by our Pupil Council rep! Well done everyone for some super outift and for a lot of fun!


Our homework will focus on a JASS task this week. As part of Me and My World, we are asking you to look into some groups you belong to. This can be clubs or organisations or links through family. These can be groups you joined in the past or are still a part of. The idea is to find out the range of links you have within your community and to become aware of these for yourself. Below is some suggested ideas you could look at together:

While some notes or paper copies of what you discuss would be lovely to put into their JASS folders, it will be sufficient for your child to be able to talk about some of their wider community groups for Thursday. As we progress through our JASS work, your child might consider ways they can help out in their community but to start with it can be really nice and helpful to see all the places and people we have connections with!

Thank you to everyone who has sent in bottle caps to help us make poppies!
We will be working on this tomorrow to have complete for Thursday. If you are making some poppies at home yourself please feel free to send some in for then.

We leave you with a traditional French song (translated as The Cats’ Ball) that the children enjoyed watching and listening to:
