What’s new? 

This week’s Ozzie’s Champion is Scott who has been working really hard in class. Well done, Scott.  


Today we have had a lovely visit from Mr and Mrs Atherton and their baby, Austen. We were all very excited to meet the new arrival who is absolutely beautiful. 


World Book Day was a great a success and your children’s costumes were brilliant. Thank you so much for getting involved in the potato competition too which saw some fantastic efforts from the children. Well done to Terry who won the KS2 entry and won a book voucher for his MR Fox inspired entry. During the morning of WBD, the children spent time creating some new display work, based on the Suffragettes, which will be used to decorate our classroom door.  I’ll share a photograph on Twitter as soon as it’s finished.   


On Friday, the children in Owls enjoyed the treat of an ice cream and an extra playtime as a reward for winning the Copper Challenge Fundraiser. Thank you for all of your donations and thank you to the PTA for the ice-cream! 



This week we have continued to use the Suffragettes text to inspire our English work. We have written to the Prison Service to explain how we feel regarding the treatment of the Suffragettes when they were arrested and put into prison. This has helped us to use subjunctive verbs and the passive voice in our writing. The children have produced some excellent work of which they should be very proud- I know I am! 


In Maths, we continue to improve our fluency and reasoning skills when comparing fractions, decimals and percentages. The fortune tellers/chatterboxes and spinners have helped with reinforcing the facts needed in this topic so thank you for supporting this homework.  


In Science, we have planned an investigation which we are hoping to carry out next Friday. We would be very grateful for Tupperware containers which we could borrow for this task. The ideal type/size are the one which may come from a take away or perhaps be used for your child’s sandwiches. Thank you in advance.  



To further consolidate our Maths work, this week’s homework is based on fractions, decimals and percentages.  

The English homework is grammar revision.  


Could I please ask that all reading books are returned into school next week so school records can be kept up to date. If your child has lost their reading book or diary, please just let me know so we can issue new ones.   


Thank you very much for all of your continuing support, 

Mrs Higgens and Mrs Smith.
