Here are a few essential things you need to bring with you:
We've got a great new approach to Homework this year called Dip 'n' Do, whereby your child can choose from a selection of EIGHT homework subjects to do each half term. It is a really fun approach to working from home and will give the children some real choice. We have already found that the children want to engage with each other about it and with their parents and carers. It's exciting for us all. Here's how it works:
The children MUST complete the topics featured in the three coloured-in boxes but can choose which one, or all, of the other boxes they would also like to dip into and do.
The tasks do not have to be completed on a weekly basis but they must all be handed in by the first day back after Half Term, and we still recommend that they dip into their homework and do a bit each week, so that they're not suddenly cramming everything into the break.
If you've mislaid your Dip 'n' Do sheet, please ask your Teacher, NOW!
Happy Dipping and Doing!

After Half Term we celebrated Science Week followed by our LYNDSTOCK Summer Fair, we ran to our hearts delight during Sports Day, enjoyed our Class Assembly and sang to our heart's content during the Playground Proms! Revisit some of these exciting events by heading to our Gallery. Click here.
Our latest class broadcast took a political turn recently as we took a liberal look at our London Mayoral election. We also turned our attention to a class discussion on homelessness and the book Way Home, as well as the children's Easter holidays.
All you have to do is put on the kettle for a cuppa, sit down and enjoy everything Orinoco Class has to say.
Don't forget to tune in to all of the other class broadcasts too.
The Spring Term was action-packed for all in Orinoco, with our Class Assembly in early February and our Radio Broadcast on GroveFM.
During the broadcast we talked about the Chinese New Year, the poem Attack of the Vegetables, and we discussed the artists Gustav Klimt and Claude Monet. Not only did we look back at some amazing artists but Miss Sayeed revealed who she would listen to on Desert Island Discs.
Why not tune in to our very own radio station to listen to what Orinoco Class had to say, right here.
Watch this space - it won't be long before you'll be able to watch our assembly.
