Parents Evening


Don't forget it is Parents Evening this Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th October. Please check the door if you have forgotten your allocated time slot. If you have not yet booked an appointment with me - it's not too late to do so. Pop in  in the morning and we can arrange a time together. I look forward to seeing you all and discussing all that we have been doing in our first term as Year 1's.


Other important reminders

​​​​​​- Christmas Card Order form due no later than Wednesday 17th October


- School Disco Thursday 18th October. Please return your permission slip with £3 payment


- Class Photos Friday 19th October


- As the weather is getting colder (and wetter!), it is vital that your child brings an appropriate change of clothing; including wellie boots & water proof trousers, to ensure that they can continue to attend their weekly Forest School session. It is getting very muddy and slippy and we would like to protect their school uniform from getting too dirty. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to me. Thank you for your co-operation. 

Key Information


Forest School is every Monday 1 - 2pm.

Please send your child/ren into school in school uniform and bring a named bag with:

  • A pair of trousers and a long sleeve top (to protect arms and legs from nettles and brambles)
  • Gloves / sunhat (weather dependent)
  • A waterproof coat (and trousers if you have them)
  • Wellington boots


Reading Books will be checked every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

​​​​​​​Please read with your child/ren as much as possible and add a comment in their reading journal.


Homework will be given out every Wednesday and will need to be returned to school the following Monday.

Homework will alternate each week between Read Write Inc and Maths.

Each term there will be a short presentation for each year group to help explain what your children will be learning this term, share the class timetable, discuss homework and answer any questions you may have. The presentation will last no more than 20 minutes and will be straight after school in your child's classroom.


To help parents who have siblings in different years, each year group will have a different after school session where ever possible.

Tuesday 18th September - Year 2

Wednesday 19th September - Year 3

Thursday 20th September - Year 4

Friday 21st September - Year 5 & 6


After the presentation, any information shared will be uploaded onto this class page.


Mini First Aid Training

24th September 2018

On Monday, the children were lucky enough to become trained First Aiders!

They all took part in an interactive mini first aid course delivered by First For Safety, and were taught how to check the airways and breathing of an unconscious person. They had lots of fun trying out their new skills on the manikins and putting each other (and their teacher) into the recovery position! The children were also told how to contact the emergency services for help as well as learning about choking and burns.  



Playground Rules

19th September 2018


Today we talked about how we can help to keep ourselves and our friends safe during outdoor playtime. As a class we came up with some fantastic ideas and created some beautiful illustrations to remind us of the playground rules. 
















Roald Dahl Day

 13th September 2018  



A massive thank you to everyone who contributed to our Roald Dahl Day by creating these amazing props!

The children had a fantastic day participating in activities such as listening to some of Roald Dahl's most famous stories, creating bookmarks and making lots of Golden Tickets. They proudly showed off their props during show n tell and especially had fun trying on the BFG's ears!
