All Hail, Macbeth!

January 11, 2019

What a fabulous start to the term:  We have all enjoyed retelling the powerful tragedy of Macbeth. We immersed ourselves in the play, becoming the characters and expressing their feelings and ideas in our writing and acting.

We have been reviewing our understanding of time, and will continue this next week.  Any practice reading both analogue and digital clocks at home would be very useful for the children.

Our first swimming lesson was a great opportunity for the children to practice this new weekly routine and the children worked hard during the session.  Parkside assessed the children thoroughly and next week they will be divided into 3 groups to best support their progress.


Please take note of this useful website which contains practical guides to help children stay safe and make the most of their time online.
