Class 10 Autumn 2014

 G’day! The children have made a great start to the school year. There are a few details and arrangements I would like to make you aware of as we continue this great start.

For the first half term we will be linking much of our learning to the Year 5 / 6 topic of ‘Survival’. This will provide great opportunities to make cross subject links and be  creative with our learning.

Each class will continue to adopts a country and make subject links, in creative ways, all through the school year. Our country is Australia.

This term Class 10 have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday. They will also be visiting the village library every third Friday. I wish to encourage each child to make sure they bring the necessary equipment on the appropriate day.

Your child also has a home reading book. I would be grateful if you could hear your child read as often as possible. This will not only develop their reading but is key to developing their writing. These books will be changed regularly.

Class homework is given on a Thursday and is to be completed and returned by the following Tuesday. Your child will also receive homework from their numeracy group teacher, which is given and taken in on an individual group basis. In preparation for the challenges of high school I may also give extra homework on other occasions to get them used to this practice. Sometimes, as an extra challenge, I ask children to find things out as a way to continue to motivate them in their learning. This however, is not part of the usual homework routine and I only ask children to complete it if they wish.

To further prepare your child for the challenges and opportunities of high school I do ask that any initial queries you or your child may have are first dealt with by your child. However if the query cannot be sorted out then by all means do contact me.

I am looking forward to meeting you all over this coming year.


Mr M Curwen.

Philosophy for Schools

This morning Mr John Foster and four students from Lancaster University came into Bolton-le-Sands to teach us about philosophy.

We spent this morning looking at the following two topics:

  • What is fair?
  • What makes a friend?

I would really like to know what you found the most interesting from your discussions this morning.

In Class 10 we have been learning about writng using ‘Falshbacks’. I would really like it if you would give me a starting sentence to begin a flashback paragraph or even write a short flashback yourself.

Happy Writing!!!
