Reading Raffle drawn



This is Thursday this term. Please ensure your child has the full kit of white t-shirt (or House colour t-shirt) and black shorts, with trainers for all PE sessions. We will be outdoors whenever possible. Pupils need to be dressed appropriately (with any warm clothing necessary). Pupils will be coming home in their PE kits to avoid too much changing.



READING: reading for enjoyment, for accuracy, for speed and for full understanding are all important facets of reading. I encourage every child to read at home as often as possible, including a wide range of material. This can be newspapers, magazines, online fact sheets, researching non-fiction information as well as traditional fiction stories. It would help your child immensely if they were encouraged to read at home regularly. They have a reading record that needs to be signed weekly, and you should encourage them to read at least three times a week. 


We will be studying World War II up to Christmas, so any research at home about relatives in the past that may have been evacuated, or served during the war, would be greatly appreciated for our display board. we will also talk about how the war and the Blitz affected Coventry, especially as it is the 80th anniversary on 14th November 2020. Therefore if you get chance to visit the ruins of Coventry cathedral with your family, it would be helpful to our studies (as unfortunately educational school trips are not advised at the moment). 


Making electronic circuit board games using our IT, science and DT skills. We are loving this investigation and learning so much.

Investigating mould growing on food, using microscopes borrowed from Rugby School. We are very grateful to them for lending their technical equipment to enable us to look so closely at what had happened to the food over time.
