Our Virtues and Vales for this half term are Eloquent and Truthful.
Eloquent: the ability to speak or write fluently, persuasively and appropriately. We are eloquent when we use language to express our ideas or opinions clearly and with conviction. When we choose our words, we should do so carefully so they are kind and compassionate, and don’t hurt others. Eloquence isn’t limited to speaking and writing. We can express ourselves in other ways like music, drama, painting or dance. We should use our creative gifts to say things in a way that is interesting, truthful, memorable and faithful.
Truthful: God wants us to be truthful in all we do. Jesus said, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life’, so being honest and truthful means we are following in his footsteps and living life the way God wants us to. Being truthful is being faithful to ourselves and to Jesus. We should stand up for the truth.

Our Virtues and Values:
The Virtues and Values for this half term are Grateful and Generous.
Grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, now and in the future.
Our current topic is 'Toys'. In topic we are looking at current toys and also toys from the past. We will be sorting toys into different groups, talking about our favourite toys and comparing past and present toys. We will also be making some of our own toys!
Your child’s reading book will be sent home daily and please return it every day in order for us to hear your child read in school. Reading books will be changed once your child has read their book and we feel that they are ready for a new one. Home reading makes a huge difference to your child's reading and supports their understanding and learning. By listening to your child read one or two pages a day, will support their ability to read and develop significantly. Please remember to sign their reading diary each time you hear them read as this will help us to identify when they are ready for a new book.
The children's homework will be stuck in their homework book and handed out every Friday. Their homework will then be collected back in on the following Wednesday (or earlier if it is done). Please ensure you sign each section to say your child has completed the talk about, read about and write about sections.
Can you please ensure that every item of your child’s school uniform including book bag, PE bag, tie, coat and water bottle are clearly labelled as this will help to identify their clothing if an item gets lost. Please also ensure your child brings their water bottle to school every day.
