Phew: Church service, Assembly, party, Christingle. I’m ready for a break and I’m sure that my class would agree.
I feel we’ve achieved a lot this term. Attitudes to learning have improved and behaviour is much better. We’ve soaked up quite a bit of knowledge and developed some key skills but I feel that we have only just started. We have so much more to look forward to when the new term begins on January 3rd. Until then, I have sent home mental arithmetic and grammar tests for homework, and I will be setting assignments on Reading Eggspress and Sumdog throughout the holiday. Please don’t worry if your children find the tasks quite difficult. Let then do what they can and let me help with the rest.
The Christmas Learner of the Week is Harley. Despite being in frequent pain after dental surgery, she has been incredibly keen to be back in class. We have all missed her wonderful imagination, her spark and her great sense of humour.
Have a very happy and restful Christmas everyone.
