Homework and Reading Books
English and Maths homework will be sent home weekly on a Wednesday and must be returned the following Wednesday. It is very important that homework is completed regularly and that reading at home takes place at least three times a week. This will help your child to make the best possible progress. Homework can be emailed home if pupils/parents prefer. Reading Books will be sent home on a Tuesday and these need to be following Monday ready to be changed again on a Tuesday. Please if you could return these each week as it is very important your child is reading at least three times a week.
PSHE Week 2018
Shopping trip to Morrisons
On Tuesday 16th January, Kappa were very lucky to be able to go Shopping in Morrisons, Belle Vale. We worked in three separate groups to pick items from our shopping lists and were even able to pay for them ourselves.
Kappa have had a fantastic Launch Day at the beginning of this term! Our topic this half-term is 'Optimism' and together as a class, we did a range of different activities. These included doing cookery with Mr Marsh were we created our own meal from a set of random ingredients, we did some maths challenges with Miss Fox, With Miss Lindsey we made became scientists and made our own slime. With Miss Woodberry we set our own goals and Miss Gee made us think about our own future and using different materials we designed our own brick and put our own messages of hopefulness. Whilst with Mr Jones and Froo, we worked as a team and build our own den outside!
We had a fantastic time and looking forward to what's coming up this term!
Kappa took part in Hope school's Christmas performance on Tuesday 19 December. The pupils completed a class dance to Michael Jackson's 'Bad' as well as a whole school performance to 'Thriller'. The boys done amazing and all the staff, parents and carers were very proud.
