27th February 2018
Since we returned in the New Year it has been non-stop. A huge range of new reading books in the library to explore, experiencing new foods in our Greek topic, the 500 word writing competition in which we eagerly await the results and more sporting success stories.
Saint Patrick will continue to explore the Ancient Greeks as they have so much more to learn. In art they will undertake a project of creating a new chair for the reading library using the decoupage technique. They will also learn about life cycles across a range of animals including humans.
The Winter Games county finals provided the chance for some of Saint Patrick’s athletes to perform in front of a big crowd and those involved came back to school full of excitement. The year 6 curling team were crowned the county champions and thoroughly enjoyed showing us their winner’s medals.
Saint Patrick are immensely proud of one of their class members as his hard work and persistence has seen his petition presented to parliament to keep Raunds library open. For me, a highlight so far this term when the whole class were cheering his name celebrating his success. The presentation of the petition can be seen at http://www.parliamentlive.tv/Event/Index/1ce6883b-4481-4adb-87d2-91ead4e04bcc
The time of presenting the petition begins at 14:33.39
Keep up the good work.
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.
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.
We will follow these to make our class and school enjoyable and safe places to be.
