Have a great weekend.

Keep up the good work.
Maths and Literacy homework has gone out today, also please remember to record any reading in your reading records
Sandford Mill Trip
The children were lucky enough to visit Sandford Mill Museum this week to learn about forces and rivers, linking into our Science topics this year.
In the morning, Elm class had the opportunity to put all their knowledge of forces into practice by testing scientific principles such as friction and aerodynamics; finding the best ways to move heavy objects and creating planes that would travel through the air with the least air resistance.
In the afternoon, the class went on a river walk to learn all about the how the Chelmer River was once used to power the Sanford Mill and used to provide drinking water for the people of Chelmsford. The children were eager to learn how the river was formed, at what rate it flowed and they were able to see first-hand how the water was cleaned and tested for its purity.
The class had a lovely day and learned a lot throughout. Both instructors told me they were pleased with how engaged the class were and how well behaved they had been.
I would also like to say a big thank you to the parents who came along to help.
This term has seen lots of activity in Elm class. From Pop Art drawing to messy Science experiments, we've seen and done it all.
The children have worked extremely hard so now i hope we all have a cracking Easter!
Mr Chapman & Mrs Savage
The children of Elm class have been learning about fractions using KAHOOT! this week. The class worked in pairs and answered questions that were displayed on the board using iPads as an interface. Points are awarded not only for correct answers but also for speed, so accuracy is just as important as timing.
The class have embraced this new form of learning and have been eager to use it again and in other subjects.
Homework is set on FRIDAY and due the following WEDNESDAY.
P.E. is now:
Tuesday OUTDOOR Wednesday INDOOR
Our trip to Appleton School is on Friday 1st March. Children need to attend school at the usual time and will be back before home time.
Children must bring their own packed lunch. If your child is entitled to free school meals, a packed lunch will be provided.
