10th January 2018

St Martha have started 2018 with a positive and hard-working attitude! We have been learning to use formal methods of multiplication in Maths and have shown real perseverance to succeed. In English, we have used drama to study characterisation in the animation ‘The Piano’ and have enjoyed using props to make predictions about what might happen next. We have started our Greek Art topic and have explored the history of artwork from this period. We are looking forward to learning more about Ancient Greek culture and mythology this term and will even be experimenting with writing our own myths. In Science, we will soon be discovering the wonders of space when we begin our new unit this week. We are all very excited for what 2018 will bring for St Martha and would like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year!


All children are expected to read regularly every week; each time they read, they will receive raffle tickets.  When they have read 5 times, they will receive raffle tickets and a merit, which will count towards their house.  Other prizes for reading will be given in class throughout the year.

Home/School Planner

Could you please ensure that your child brings their home/school planner in to school every day. Please feel free to write any comments in it.

Every Friday your child will bring their planner home which will have been signed by their teacher. This should be countersigned by the parent/carer and returned to school again on Monday morning.
