This week the children in Apollo had great fun making and evaluating their lighthouses!!

They all managed to create a working circuit to light up their bulb and solved lots of problems along the way using perseverance and determination, self direction and organisation.

On Thursday we had a “Global learning Day” where we explored the idea of fair trade. The children solved money problems, worked as a team, wrote letter to the Minister for Transport and wrote persuasive arguments for buying fair trade products. They also took part in a philosophy session in which many children were able to air their views in a safe and respectful environment.

How you can help!

  • PE days are Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school (clearly labelled) and remove any earrings.
  • Homework is due on a Monday. It is the children’s responsibility to make sure that their homework is completed every week and placed into the homework box on a Monday morning in order for it to be marked.
  • Spelling tests are on a Monday morning and the following week’s spellings will be handed out on the same day.

Home Learning

Here are some activities that you can do at home:

  • Keep practising our ‘Harvest Samba’ song

  • This week we have been trying really hard to extend our sentences and make them a little bit longer. Can you practise writing sentences using conjunctions? Conjunctions are words that join sentences together like ‘and’, ‘because’, ‘but’ and ‘so’.
  • Here is a useful website to help practise spellings each week. Spell Zone has a range of games which link to the children’s spelling rule for each week. Why don’t you try the word search or have a go at the bouncing anagrams?
