Hello everyone,

We hope you are well and keeping safe.

This week, we have been very busy with lots of learning. In English, we have been looking at time and place adverbials. The children have been writing safety instructions on how to keep your snowman safe.

In Maths, the children have started their fraction unit. We have been very surprised with the children as they have been using their derived facts when dividing a whole by tenths and hundredths. Next week, we will begin to explore equivalent fractions and finding the amounts.

During Black History Month, year 4 were given the amazing Miriam Makeba, also known as Mama Africa, to explore and research. They researched all about her life, from when she was a child during the apartheid, to being exiled from her country, fighting against discrimination and then returning to her home country once the apartheid was quashed. Koalas and Kangroos were so inspired by her story that as a class they created a song which they performed to the class in their own ‘Miriam Makeba’ concert. We were very proud of the children for not only performing, but being so passionate and standing up against discrimination.

Just a few reminders –

  • Thank you to all parents who attended the virtual Parent’s evenings. It was so lovely to chat and meet you properly. If you have any further questions or queries, please do not hesitate to call or message the school and we will try our best to help.
  • Thank you to the parents who have volunteered to walk with the school for St Peter’s Advent service taking place at the Sacred Heart Church in Waterlooville. This will take place on Tuesday, so please send your child into school wearing appropriate and smart footwear.
  • Reading passports are due 8.12.21
  • Please send your child into school in their PE kits on Monday 29th November 2021.
  • As the weather is getting colder and bitter, please send your child in wearing warm clothes such as gloves, hats and coats as at break and lunch the children will be on the playground.

We hope you have a lovely weekend,

Miss Jackson-Nash, Miss Honeywell, Mrs Cairns and Miss Ranson
