All entries were sent off and this week they announced the winners! WINNERS-if you would like your poem to be published, you must return your consent forms! Well done to everyone that took part!

Reading

Reading at St. Thomas’ is very important to us. Reading can open up many opportunities for our children.

In class, we have reading for pleasure time where children can choose a book from the class library and enjoy their chosen book. The children will be able to visit our school library and take a book home. Please remember it must be returned to school.

 

STEM Dazzle Books: 

Children who are trying super hard in STEM subjects will get to choose a dazzle book from the library.

STEM Dazzle Book Winners: 

Challenge books

Children will come home with a book that they should read and once finished return to class. They will be given a sheet to fill in about this book. If a child has read 6 of the challenge books they will be rewarded with a badge from Mr Deane!

Take a quiz from each subject to remember what we have been learning!

We begin our gym session with a warm up, followed by floor work then onto the apparatus and finish with a cool down.

We have been practicing different rolls such as; forward and backwards rolls, cartwheels and a log roll. 

We explore the apparatus by travelling in many ways such as; over and under, beside and on top. Look at us practising below.
