Dear Parents

Additionally we will be available specifically to offer support and advice in person at 8:00 on Monday morning for anyone wishing to discuss their individual situation with us.
In the meantime we would guide you to the Surrey County Council Admissions pages where you can get advice on making appeals and more.

Another slice of toast anyone? Thank you Mrs Clark for being the world's best toaster! And thank you Miss Ufton for spreading our toppings so beautifully!

Maths will be continuing the mastery curriculum covering geometry, statistics and revision of various various elements.

Our Science topic this half term is Electricity and we will be immersing ourselves in its power (!) over 2 days, learning about circuits, diagrams and how electricity works. It will culminate in designing and making a model with a working electrical circuit.

Well done to Paris for fantastic work in Maths. The children were set the challenge to 'Find pi' by measuring the circumference and diameter of different circles and Paris was the first to reach 3.14. Excellent!

We had a wonderful day celebrating our love of books. Our classroom was dressed in a spooky theme and we loved moving around the school, visiting the other classes. We looked at lots of different books and did some beautiful writing based on our favourite stories. We spent the afternoon decorating wooden spoons based on our favourite book characters. Well done to Daisy and Matilda whose spoons were chosen as the winning designs. Their prize is to visit a local book shop and decide what new books we should by for our refurbished school library! Everyone had great fun dressed in their book character costumes - we are very sad that our last World Book Day is over at St Lawrence. Well done to Dana who won the best costume!
