Welcome to Class 6!
Thank you for your support this week during SATs. The children have worked really hard and I'm super proud of them. To celebrate, today we did some art outside and finished our "Banksy" inspired pictures!
1. Reading - The children are expected to read at least 4 times a week at home. They will be bringing home their school reading book to read and a task to complete before their next guided reading session in school. Please sign their planner every time they read at home, as then they can be entered into a draw to win a book each week (3 signatures minimum). Reading challenge...I have set the class a challenge to read all the books that I have chosen, before the end of the school year! It's quite a task but I'm hopeful some of them will manage it!
2. Spellings - every week your child will bring home a set of spellings to learn which relate to the spelling rule or letter pattern they have been learning in school. There will also be a spelling task.
3. PE - PE lessons will be twice weekly but can I remind you that children should have their kit at school every day please. Also, a reminder that school kit is white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers.
Visit to The Houses of Parliament
On the 14th February, 5.20am we set off from school to have a fantastic day visiting London and Westminster. The children were impeccably behaved throughout the whole day and we were immensely proud of them. Not only did we have a tour inside the Houses of Parliament, but we also had the opportunity to watch members of Parliament debating, with Andrea Ledson leading the issues and John Bercow sitting as speaker of the house. Following that, the pupils took part in a workshop where they decided issues that could be passed in the commons and how funding could be found to improve lives for the people of Britain. They had a vote to see who would become the next Prime Minister! Then, Kevin Hollinrake - local MP for Thirsk and Malton - visited us and answered the pupils' questions. After 3 busy hours, Abbotts Coach company took us on a wonderful tour of London so the children could see sights such as The Shard, Tower Bridge, Oxford Street and Buckingham Palace. We stopped on the way home for a McDonald's before arriving back in Thirsk at 8.30pm. Please look at the photos below to see what we were up to!
