Week Beginning 5 October 2015

ECA/BISCAP - Please inform the class teacher via a note in your child’s Communication Book if your child’s arrangements change for BISCAP, ECA or end of the day pick up. As changes involve a disruption to normal routines this helps us support you in getting your child home safely.

MESSAGES

  • Lunch - If your child has been registered and leaves school after 9.30 Sleto will still charge for lunch unless they know in advance. Please email catering@bisspuxi.com if you know your child will not be in school for lunch by 9.30 so that you are not charged.
  • Security - Our new security system is still at the trial stage.  Adults only should use the glass gates to enter and exit the school; children should use the metal gates to the side.  If you are concerned that your child is young and you want to be with them then please accompany them through the metal gates. Thank you for your support.
  • The optional homework task sent on Wednesday 23 September should be handed in on Monday 12 October. Normal homework will resume on Wednesday 14 October.
  • Please can you provide your child with a light rain jacket on days where rain is forecast. To minimise the amount of time children are inside the classroom,  the children will go outside for playtimes during light rain.

Literacy

This week in Literacy we will continue to investigate various forms of poetry. We will look at how a range of poets use different literary techniques to add power and pathos to their work. To do this, we will link our writing to our World War 2 Themed Learning topic and continue to imagine what life would have been like for an evacuee in 1939 England. We will finish the unit of work by writing Haikus.
