Opera – Maria Stuarda 

The children are enjoying their learning around the Opera Maria Stuarda and are looking forward to watching the opera at Sheredes School on Wednesday 27th June 2018.

DT

For our DT learning, the children will make their own opera stage which will focus on a scene of their choice and include the characters, furniture and background. We are asking for children to bring in a shoe box for their stage and any props or materials. We will provide card, paper and cutting tools.

TT Rock Stars
Please continue to encourage your child to practise their times tables. At the moment, those children who are in Trott House are ahead of the game and are practising daily. If you would like your house to be a top ‘Rock Star’, then you’ll need to keep practising!

Tolmers is soon approaching!
This time next Wednesday we will be camping at Tolmers. The children and adults are excited and are looking forward to all of the fun activities.

Please continue to encourage your child to read daily and practise their spellings!

 

Thank you,

Year 4 Team

Year 3 and 4 rock!

Jun
4

All pupils in year 3 and year 4 are currently taking part in an inter-house times table challenge.

Before half term, each pupil received their log-in for the TTRockstars website. The site is accessible from home and from school and the more a pupil plays, the more points they win for themselves and for their House (and the more they improve their recall of valuable times table facts!).

Trott House are the clear leaders at the moment so well done to them. Everyone in Ennis, Farah and Whitlock House needs to get playing to catch the leaders!

This challenge continues until the end of the month when winners will be announced. There will also be a one-off inter-house tournament at the end of June.

If you have mislaid your log-in letter, try your Mymaths user name and password as this should work. If not, see your class teacher.

Is your child entitled to pupil premium?

Nov
15

We believe that every student at Wormley Primary should have the opportunity to achieve the best possible start to life. We are committed to breaking down any barriers to outstanding achievement and attainment.

The pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to raise the achievement of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11. Funding is for children from low-income families who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (FSM ‘Ever 6’) or are looked after children or from families with parents in the Armed Forces. If you think your child may be eligible for this additional funding then let us know or visit:

https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/schools-and-education/at-school/free-school-meals/free-school-meals.aspx

Years 3 – 6: Use the above link to check eligibility and apply for pupil premium

Reception, Year 1 or 2: Although your child will automatically receive universal free school meals, you should still register on the above link as, if eligible, the school could get extra money to support your child

Pre-school & Nursery: Please speak  to the school directly
