Well it has been a busy half term but we have finally made it to the holiday. Thank you to all parents for your support over the past 6 weeks, we have won the Fab Five reader award lots and our 100% attendance award was mentioned again in assembly this week.
We have an exciting first week back planned which will include a visit from the fire brigade on Tuesday and a topic themed day (Great Fire of London) on the Friday which will be delivered by the very talented 'Partake Theatre Company'.
Finally, the second half of this term will soon be taken up with Nativity performance preparations. As in previous years, the Year 2 children will be given acting parts and the Year 1s will play the important part of the choir. Regular correspondence will ensure that you know exactly what's expected of your child, the staff are excited already.
Have a super half term holiday.

This week we have been working really hard on different types of sentences. We have used a dragon theme to write about these using the correct punctuation at the end of each sentence.
In PE, we are working hard on our Dance and the Four Seasons. We are listening to all different types of music thinking about how it makes us feel and then moving to the music (We have some great dancers in Danny's Champions).
In Maths with Miss Hornsby, we have started work on 2D shapes looking at the different properties. We played some 'guessing the shape' games which everyone worked really hard on.
Firstly, your children may have come home this week talking about moving around the different classrooms for maths and phonics. We have started our setting groups and the children have, very quickly, got to grips with this new aspect of our school day; Y2s have remembered the system from last year so well done to all of you too.
This week we have been looking at the city of London. We have compared images of modern day London with paintings from around the time of the great fire of London. The children were really excited by this and a few shared first hand experiences of visiting our capital city.
During our English lessons this week we have been learning all about how to write sentences using a simple structure. We have talked about sentences needing to start with a capital letter, end with an end mark, have finger spaces and make sense; ask your children if they can remember any or all of these important things.
Fab Five ReadersDanny’s Champions had the highest percentage of Fab Five Readers last week, we scored just over 84% and we were top again this week with 70%. Keep up the hard work parents, the children were very proud.

In Danny's Champions this week we have been getting to know where everything lives and some class rules. We've had great fun sharing our 'All About Me' bags with our friends in our class and really enjoyed making our class tree using our fingerprints. We have also started to have a look at at our Topic for this term which is Fire working in small groups talking about what we already know.
