toitoise resilienceWelcome back! We hope you’ve had a really good half term break. Our theme for the week is resilience- the ability to keep going and remain strong, especially when things get difficult. It is of course closely linked to perseverance.

This week, the Year 6 pupils go on their residential. We know that they will have an amazing time! They will certainly be developing resilience.

‘Bags to School’ need to be returned on Monday as previously mentioned. This is a huge help to raise funds for our school. Thank you.

Year 3 go to the cinema on Wednesday, and Year 4 on Friday. This is part of a free showing put on by Vue for schools.

Have a great week :)

To see some of your children’s fantastic work make sure you pop in to the Discovery Centre in Festival Place.  Why not join the library while you are there and pick some fantastic books to borrow and read together over half term.

newmathscurriculumThank you to everyone who attended our parents information session on the new maths national curriculum recently, run by Mr Hanson. You can view or download the presentation here.

The key idea is practising little and often. Don’t forget X-Factor times tables, Big Maths, and Woodlands Maths websites!

This week at KFJS   

18 October, 2014

Our theme this week is responsibility. When children show this behaviour in learning, they are able to say, “I know learning is important, and I want to learn how to be a better learner!”

On Friday, we have our first Diploma Day of the year. This is a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to develop their skills and learning behaviours. They chose an activity to do for the morning, with a different teacher, and the children are mixed up in different classes. Activities include karate, photography, cooking, making paper aeroplanes, den making, friendship bracelets, calendar making, making flying machines, creating a clown, cross stitching, other crafts, football and more!

Monday – Mr Applegate leads assembly
Tuesday – Singing Assembly
Wednesday – Disco 4:30-6pm.
Thursday – Class Assembly
Friday – Diploma day!

Have a great week :)
