We hope the children have a great time at the secondary transition days this week. Later this week we will be finishing our bird boxes ready for the summer fair. If you wish to reserve a bird box, please inform the class teachers who will keep them back from the main sale. If you let us know by Wednesday, you can select the hole for sparrow or blue tits.
This week we will be continuing to make our bird boxes to sell at the Summer Fair and keeping our literacy and maths skills sharp. Remember INSET day on Friday.
A fantastic job was done by all the prefects and helpers at sports day which allowed the day to go so well. Thank you year 6.
Please find the curriculum overview for this term.
We will be having PE on a Tuesday, so more children can take part.

Another lovely day in Shropshire with many more activities and fun. We have been in the swimming pool, fencing, archery, dancing and using the climbing equipment. We are now getting ready for lights off, are mostly packed and ready to complete our last activity in the morning and make our weary way home tomorrow.
We may need a lot of sleep over the weekend.
A good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast had us ready for a mixture of activities. The weather started off cool but warmed up nicely, drying our few clothes that were still wet from yesterday's water sports.
Everyone is ready for bed now and looking forward to another great day of activities.
Another update tomorrow if the slow internet connection allows it. Four photos is about all it can take!
Tuesday 8:00. We have just had breakfast and are getting ready for the activities. A bit of a late night for some but we were well fed and slept, in the end.
We had fun on the aerial trek yesterday and there are some photos below. More will be posted when we get the time.
We hope all is well back in Didcot!

Homework for this week.
Spelling for Friday 2nd November
We have discussed the costumes for our performance of The Tempest on November 5th. We want to put on a modern adaptation of the play and ask that children dress appropriate for their roles. If you can source items that will enhance the character, that would be great, but if not, we have a week when we get back to sort these things out. Please do not feel that you have to spend lots of money on costumes.
We are still waiting for details from the festival organisers and the Cornerstone Theatre before we can let you know exactly what is happening on the evening. We will be at the theatre from 1pm until 5pm and need to be back at the theatre at 6pm to finish at about 9:20pm. We are trying to organise somewhere to eat at the theatre but we are awaiting approval. We will let you know on the 29th October. I apologise for the delays in letting you know.
Any problems please let me know.

19th September 2018
For Year 3,4,5 and 6 homework this year, we have purchased two CGP workbooks for each child. One covers the curriculum for maths, and one contains Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling activities. These will be sent home each week, as well as your child’s normal reading book.
We hope that these books will help let you know about what we are teaching and how to help you to support your child. Answers are provided in both books, so please feel free to check your child’s work with them, and discuss any problems they have found. At school, we will go through each piece of homework together as a class to help any children who found it difficult. If you have a particular concern about a piece of homework, please feel free to let your child’s teacher know with a note in their book.
Homework will be given out on Wednesdays, to be returned the following Monday. The children will be informed of the pages to be completed and they will also published onto the class pages of the website. Please do not complete other pages of the book as the books are intended to reinforce classwork.
Having bought books for every child in the year, we are unable to provide free replacements. Therefore there will be a £2.50 charge if your books are lost. Please try to keep your book safe!
If your child is keen to do more, you can do extra examples on paper and bring it in inside the book. We love to see and reward extra effort! Please do not go on and do more than has been asked each week, as we will be setting the next pages for homework later on in the term. Your child could also log on to Education City (Through the Staff/Pupils RM Unify link on our school website) and find games to practise their Maths, English or Science.
Please also remember that reading for pleasure is a vital part of continuing to make progress in reading and is important to be encouraged!
Mr Badger and the KS2 team.
Please find a link to a darts game which helps with quick maths. It seems to work better with Microsoft Edge or Explorer.
Please have a go but remember that you need to end with a double.
The spellings for week 14/9/18 are the following:
Each term there will be a short presentation for each year group to help explain what your children will be learning this term, share the class timetable, discuss homework and answer any questions you may have. The presentation will last no more than 20 minutes and will be straight after school in your child's classroom.
To help parents who have siblings in different years, each year group will have a different after school session where ever possible.
Monday 17th September - EYFS & Year 1
Tuesday 18th September - Year 2
Wednesday 19th September - Year 3
Thursday 20th September - Year 4
Friday 21st September - Year 5 & 6
After the presentation, any information shared will be uploaded onto this class page.
