Many thanks for your support, helping your children prepare for London and allowing them to come. It really was a great trip and once the display is finished, you will be invited in to hear all about it and see the photographs. We posted most of the pictures we took on Twitter but I'll print them out and hopefully load them on to this page too. The children were a credit to you and a pleasure to be with. We really did all have a brilliant time. We met the Mother General of Tyburn Convent in Hyde Park and she invited us all to the convent for adoration! Sadly, we really didn't have time, but if ever you go to London, she really did mean it. Mrs Davis also saw Pippa Middleton having tea in a café in Hyde Park!
Please can I ask you to make sure your children are practising their times tables if they don't know them. Children can't achieve the year 6 expected standard without knowing their tables. I'll ring around this week for a chat.
Secondly, please can children be reading for at least half an hour most days. It is the best homework they can do and makes the biggest difference to their writing and comprehension.
Here are this week's spellings and below is an attachment with an arithmetic practice paper (for Wednesday 6th November please):
Do please call in when you get time to see your children's recent scores. Looking forward to seeing you at the Sex Ed information evening if not before,

Year 6 has worked really hard this week and the children have produced some wonderful stories which will be displayed over half term - do please come in and see them. They have also written about the Victorians in a final piece of writing to finish off the topic. I'm very excited about our new Geography project next half term and look forward to introducing it to everyone.
This week, I felt really proud of them as they tackled long division and showed great perseverance - it's very tricky to learn and they were so cheerful about it - we haven't finished yet!
The new R.E. topic is on Vocations and Belonging, exploring our mission in the world - please see the Explore homework below and look out for our R.E. information evening next half term.
I look forward to seeing as many people as possible at the parents information evening for the London trip on Wednesday 23rd October at 5pm. Please find a copy of the medical form below - paper copies are being sent home with your child today to be collected in at the meeting. Don't worry if you can't make the meeting - pop in anytime to pick up the information and for a chat.
Wishing everyone a restful and enjoyable half term break and see you all back after the holiday,
With kind regards,
