Town Hall visit

Posted on Wednesday 15 November 2017 by Miss Beatson

Today, the School Council visited the Town Hall, to look at proposed plans for playing areas in Wetherby. They were asked for their views and opinions to help developers design the best possible parks they can.

Here is some feedback our school council gave the planning team:

  • “I like the swings in the spider web park because they look like they go really high.”
  • “I like some of the ideas for the slides because there were different sizes so all ages could use them.”
  • “I thought in one of the parks they could have a big slide as well as a little slide.”

Practice Makes Perfect

Homework this week is all about measures.

Year 3 have some word problems to solve and Year 4 have some converting of measures. The sheets are glued in your child’s book.

If your child comes across a problem, please encourage them to ask for some help during the school day.

Times tables

Please practise the 3x table. All of the class will be learning this table for the next few weeks. So, expect lots of 3x related activities to be coming home. We’ll start by simply filling in the sheet that is glued in your child’s book.
