What a super week we have had. Our poems are finished and ready for display (and very thoughtful and beautifully presented they are too).
Everyone has made a concerted effort with home reading this week and it is lovely to hear about books other than school books that you are sharing at home.
Today we have enjoyed the mummers play which I’m sure there is more about in the newsletter but we felt quite inspired to give one a go ourselves – maybe later in the term!
Junior life skills was a valuable experience. Unfortunately for us, some of the presenters weren’t able to attend which resulted in a rather truncated afternoon but I was delighted with the way that the year 6s conducted themselves and the sensible and thoughtful questions that they had to ask and the mature way in which they were able to contribute to the sessions – thank you year 6, you were a credit to our school.
Our times tables recall is getting much quicker too. Next week we need to work on our 8 times table so any preparation would be great.
Last but my no means least, we are a week away from our trip to Morwellham. The following link gives some child-friendly information about mining in Devon and Cornwall for those of you who would like to explore the topic at home. Please can you return the reply slip and arrange for the financial contribution via the School Gateway if still outstanding –

Let’s hope that next Friday’s weather will be kinder to us than today.
Have a lovely weekend.
