Week 2

Next Friday 16th November Is Children in Need. £1 donation non uniform day the theme is spots.

In English next week we will be thinking about what items we will need to take with us on our journey to the moon. We will also be writing about what adventures we would go on if we found our very own star.

In Maths we will be learning our number bonds, making pairs of numbers, solving word problems and practising our ordinal numbers. 

We are delighted to tell all parents at Combe Down Primary School that we will be 
receiving a 30 day free trial of DoodleMaths.  Doodle Maths is an app or website based 
product that 'helps children make big improvements in both their ability and 
confidence in maths'.  It allows teachers and parents to target children's strengths in maths
and areas for development and builds a program tailored just for them.
In order to get the most out of the 30 day free trial we have arranged a 
parent coffee morning on Thursday 22nd November in the school hall at 9am.  
We have a representative from Doodlemaths to come in and demonstrate the product and how you can get the most out of it at home.  
If you could come along please do so as I will be looking to gather feedback from parents after the trail on the experience so we as a school can make a more informed decision on whether to purchase the product. 
Coming along to the coffee morning will be as great opportunity to understand the product and ask questions to an expert. We will provide a crèche facility in the school hall to accommodate any young children. 
I look forward to seeing you there,
