Happy Friday everyone! Our superstars at Hamilton Academy have been working hard again this week across the school as they continue on their learning journey. This week, there is a buzz in the air as the children make their final preparations for Sports Day! Don’t forget to check the newsletter for more information on which day your child will be competing. You can find this on the school website or on the School Story on ClassDojo. Don’t forget to also check your ClassDojo messages for more on which colour t-shirt your child needs to wear on the day. Which team are you cheering for; yellow, red, blue or green? We are also all very excited for our ‘Disney Dress Up’ day on Thursday 20th May! The teachers are excitedly preparing their outfits for the day and we cannot wait to see all of the children in their amazing outfits. Not only that, but the children have a super special menu on our dress up day too. Next week will certainly be a very exciting week for all of the children!
For now, let’s travel back in time to see what the children across the school have been up to this week…

What fantastic authors we have in Y2! In English this week, the children have innovated the story 'Traction Man' by creating their very own superhero. The children wowed their teachers with their imaginative ideas and have wrote amazing, innovated stories using lots of Y2 writing skills. Don't forget to check your child's Class Dojo page for some examples of the children's amazing stories! In maths the children have continued their learning of fractions. The Incredibles have blown their teachers socks off with their super understanding of finding one quarter and one third of a shape or quantity. Can your child share with you strategies of how to find one third of 12? In Design and Technology the children have continued with their learning of Traction Man and have designed a cape using materials that are strong and waterproof. The children then brought their ideas to life and created their very own Traction Man using a range of tools and materials. The children can't wait to test the suitability of their capes next week! In PE the Incredibles have been practising their sports day races in preparation for the big event next week! Please check ClassDojo for further information regarding sports day.
Another fantastic week all round. Boys and girls give yourselves a 1, 2, 3 well done me, for all of your hard work and MAGIC attitudes throughout the week.
