Dear Parents/ Guardians

In Class 2 this Autumn term our overall topic is 'Journeys' so lots of topics will be based upon this theme. Class 2 will soon be preparing for our Harvest Festival looking at the journeys of food around the world.

Games lessons in Class 2 will be Thursday afternoon. On that day only we ask that the children come ready dressed in clothes appropriate for a games lesson (track suit, trainers, t-shirt, sweatshirt) with consideration also for the weather. We also hope to run a cross country club during Thursday lunchtimes, starting this Thursday. It will soon be our District Cross Country race.

Swimming this year will be on a Tuesday morning. Years 5 and 6 will be swimming throughout the Autumn term. Years 3 and 4 for the first half of the Winter/ Spring Term. Year 5 and 6 for the last half of the Winter/ Spring Term. Years 2, 3, and 4 for the Summer Term.

For pupils who play instruments in school. Violin and harp with Mrs Thirkettle is on Thursday morning. Flute and clarinet with Dr. Evans hasn't got a confirmed day yet. Both Mrs Thirkettle and Dr Evans are looking for new instrumentalists this year, this is a great opportunity to learn to play an instrument but places are limited so please enquire at the school office. Everyone in Class 2 also do recorders on a Thursday, the school has some recorders to purchase which are £4 each if your child doesn't have their own. Please encourage your child to keep up with their practice and remember to bring their instrument and study books.

Computer club will start on Tuesday 13th September. The club is open to KS2 children only and there is no charge, it will start at 3.40 and finish at 4.40pm. Please enquire at the school office if you are interested.

Applications for Urdd membership will issued soon, the membership will allow the children to participate in the Urdd sporting events through the year. Urdd swimming and 7-a-side football are scheduled for this term.

Best Regards

Tim Reed
