We are please to let you know that Empire Class will be taking part in Forest School on Monday 26th March. Don't forget your layers!
The week beginning the 26th March 2018, the children in year 5 will be sitting the Cognitive Ability Tests (CATS) which consists of four specific areas are tested:
The set of four scores obtained from the assessment with CAT4 provides a profile of a child’s level and pattern of abilities, as well as providing an overall summary score of his or her reasoning abilities across four areas.
Please note that the CAT4 tests are designed to help parents understand their child’s ability and likely academic potential; they will not be used to level your child’s progression as Barming Primary School.
The results will be sent to you in a letter as soon as we receive them.
A quick reminder that Ruben Class will be taking part in Forest School tomorrow (Wednesday 7th March 2018). Please ensure the children have suitable clothing as they will get dirty and be out for the entire morning/afternoon. Leggings and jeans are not suitable because leggings are too cold and jeans do not dry quickly when wet. Layers are preferable to ensure warmth.
You could always start your HOMEWORK... See menu below...

As mentioned in the childrens contact books, please find attached a book review template to the website. Children can complete a book review after reading in order to develop their reading comprehension. This is also a good opportunity to support handwriting, spelling and punctuation.
If your child wishes to complete a book review it will be marked alongside their class work, therefore could you please ensure that they complete them independently.
We've come to the end of a busy term and would like to congratulate the children on all their hard work.
Just a couple of reminders for next term - homework is due on Monday 30th October and as the weather is getting cooler, can you ensure your child has an outdoor PE kit for Wednesdays.
Our new topic is all about St Lucia, an Island paradise. We would be grateful if your child could bring a holiday brochure for St Lucia or the Caribbean.
Thank you for all your support this term. We hope you have a lovely break.
