Dear Parents and Carers

Welcome back to the second half of the autumn term here at Lansbury Lawrence, we hope you had an enjoyable half term holiday. We have lots of exciting trips planned over the next few weeks, and we always need parent volunteers to support on these visits. Trips are listed under the key dates at this end of this newsletter. If you would like to volunteer as a parent helper, please do talk to your child’s teacher.

Parent and Teacher Meetings are next week on the 5th, 6th and 7th November. Please see your child’s teacher in the morning to arrange a time to come in.

Poppy Class celebrate Diwali

We have been celebrating the Hindu Festival of Light – Diwali. We have learnt about the festival, created Rangoli art, and listened to traditional Indian music. We also made candle-holders from clay, and  added candles and lit them.

Road Safety Assembly

Years 1 – 6 learned about the importance of staying safe around busy roads this week, through a fun drama-based assembly. Now that the mornings and evenings are getting darker, it is even more important to make sure you are seen and safe around traffic. 

Family Science

Well done to those those children that have been participating and enjoying their Family Science experiments.

The last one we posted was how to float an egg in water. Remember that you can still have a go at the previous experiments that we have posted on our newsletters, there is no deadline! A pupil from Riley Class that had participated in the experiment explained that, “the egg floated in the salty water because the water was more dense than the egg”. It is really nice to see children exploring and learning about density using the resources that they have in their kitchen cupboard!

There will be a new experiment posted next week.
