What a wonderful start to the new school year! We have had an amazing residential and all the children have returned to school with a wonderful attitude – all ready to learn! Our golden thread for this half term is ‘Confident Communicators’ – we have certainly done a lot of that at Ingleborough and this work will continue throughout the half term, as well the year ahead. 

The children made me incredibly proud at Ingleborough.  Their behaviour was fantastic and we had lots of fun!  There were some brilliant activities on offer - gorge scrambling, exploring caves, adventuring across the Norber erratics...we also learnt some fantastic skills, such as archery, den-building, orienteering and geo-caching.  There was never a dull moment and the children were a pleasure to take away.
Every morning, as part of our Early Bird work, the children are completing their maths Fluent in 5 and Flashback 4 questions to get them warmed-up and ready for their maths lesson.  This work begins at 8:45, so the earlier you arrive the earlier you can get started on your learning!  

A quick reminder that the register is taken at 8:55, therefore pupils need to be in class and ready before this is taken.

In Cedar Class we have started our Maths work this week by investigating and analysing increasingly larger numbers, reaffirming the importance of place value. We have also been revising rounding numbers to 10, 100 and 1000 and building our resilience with problem solving.
In English, Year 6 have been thinking back our residential last week and have based our writing this week around our trip to Ingleborough in the form of a letter to a friend describing what we got up to, how much we enjoyed our visit and the new skills we learned. 
Year 5 have begun a new novel called ‘There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’ by Louis Sachar.   The children have really enjoyed unpicking the main character and predicting how the novel might evolve.  Cedar class enjoy reading every day, whether through our whole-class guided reading, book talk, class stories and reading in other subjects. 
Our History topic is The Ancient Greeks and we have been busy finding out lots of information about modern day Greece and comparing it to Ancient times. We have had a very lively debate about democracy and even tried some Greek dancing. You will be pleased to know that no crockery was smashed in the process!
In PE we tested out the new running track and completed some baseline fitness tests - so we can measure our progress in our fitness throughout the Year. We welcomed SportsCool to the school again to give a demonstration of Tag Rugby in preparation of the exciting after school club we will be running every Friday until half term in Tag Rugby. Places still available if you want to Join! The clubs will start tomorrow after school - PE kit needed.
A quick reminder that PE kits should be in school every Monday and return home every Friday.  Pupils also need a coat, pair of trainers and wellies in school each day, so that they can access the field during all weathers.
Have a lovely weekend!
