Context for Learning

Our context for learning this half term is Street Detectives. The children will be going on a walk around the local area to investigate the different types of houses and the features of the streets. Following this, the children will be using their ICT skills to plot the route they took on their walk. They will also be writing a 'house for sale' advert for their dream home. We will also be investigating how Roath Park and Lakeside school have changed over time.

At the end of our context, the children will be learning about how they can look after our local area and how important it is to keep it clean.

Please see the sheet below for learning ideas that your children can do at home.

PE sessions take place every Thursday. Please ensure that your child has a navy blue PE kit (shorts and t-shirt)and trainers/plimsolls. 

Children have snack every day. Please ensure that you pay £1.20 per week.
If you wish to pay by cheque, please make it payable to ‘Lakeside Primary Snack Account'.

If you would like to pay in advance, the amount for this half term is £8.40. The total for the autumn term is £16.80. The total amount for the year is £45.60.

Please see the class teachers if you are in arrears and need to know the new total due.
