This term we are going to be looking at our science topic of Light and Sound and exploring how both light and sound work. We will also be looking at writing play scripts, story settings and war poetry based on WW1 and WW2 poetry. In the lead up to Christmas we will also be having a look at popular seasonal stories and the connection of Christmas with light.

Lunches 

As the school has made the move to online payments for lunches we are also changing the way in which children bring their lunches into school. Children need to be responsible for their own lunches and bring them into the classroom for registration. This will make it easier for class teachers to be able to clearly see who is having sandwiches and who is having a pre-paid (using the new online payment system) hot dinner. 

 

Lunches will then be placed on the lunch trolleys as usual after registration.
