A Not So Silent Night – Year 2 Carol Concert

Nov
12

We would like to invite you to our Year 2 Christmas Carol Concert ‘A Not So Silent Night’ on Thursday 12th December at 6pm. For the concert, we would like the children to wear their uniform and a Christmas hat. Please bring the children back to their classrooms by 5.40pm on this evening. We plan to make some mince pies beforehand that will be for sale before the concert so you may wish to bring along some loose change. The concert should last approximately 40-45 minutes. Children will be collected from their classrooms after the performance. We will send out a ticket with further details on nearer the time. A DVD will be for sale of the performance. Further information to follow.

 

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Harwood, Mrs Hansford and Mrs Plester 🙂 🙂 🙂

Rock Out 2019!

Nov
11

As our pupils love TTRockstars and are committed to improving their timestable knowledge and recall, those in Years 2-6 are taking part in a competition this week called Rock Out 2019 and it’s all done online via the TTRockstars website.

All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7.30am and 7.30pm on Monday 11th, Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th, Thursday 14th, Friday 15th and Saturday 16th November.

For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours). Winning classes in the school and in the country as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.

In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on their behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more, some will play less.

Thanks for your support and good luck everyone!
