On Friday last week we gave out some skills grids. This will, hopefully, give you an idea of the topics this tea. We are working on a history based topic 'Now and Then' and comparing periods of history. In Mr Jamil's class it will be World War 2 and the home front, In class 3B we are looking at the Celts, in 3A they will be studying all about the Plague. Miss Gould is looking at cold places in the world and comparing winter Now and Then, with a Frozen theme!! Miss Hamilton will be sending her grid out on Monday.
We have had to change our staff meeting night to a Monday this half term so please be aware clubs will be on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. We will decide this week and send a letter out with the choices. Newsletters will be out on a Monday as usual and please be aware that they will be posted online and e-mailed. If you do not have your e-mail registered then can I urge you to do so in order to reduce our paper usage.
We have welcomed 8 former pupils of Ysgol Maes Edwin. WE hope they will be happy in their new school.
Nw Year and resolutions are needed!!. We will be continuing to work hard on our healthy eating agenda and therefore, once again, appreciate your support in providing a healthy snack for your children. They will be awarded dojo points for this.
Ina ddtion, sadly, there appeared to be very little use of RM Easimaths and reading over the holidays, apart form a regular few. There is a clear link between performance and reading / maths supported at home. Please read regularly with your child(ren) and allow them access to Rm Easi maths for 1 session (15mins) a day. This equates to 25 minutes a night and if done each school night (excluding Friday and Saturday) that is 50 minutes of reading and 1 hour 15 minutes extra of maths! It soon builds up
