Welcome to Y3/4 Class 8

Dear Parents and Carers

I am delighted to welcome your child into Class 8!  Mrs O’Dowd and Mrs Beardsley will be working with us, and our theme this term will be Revolutionary Romans.  We will be finding out about the Romans and how they lived.

Your child is now in Year 3 or 4, and growing and developing quickly.  In Years 3 and 4, we encourage greater independence, and children are expected to become more responsible.  School starts at 8.45am, when whistle will be blown. The children will line up in the playground to go into school with their teacher.  Punctuality is important, because the day starts with an independent morning task as soon as the children arrive in the classroom.  School ends at 3.15pm.

Homework and Reading

The best way to ensure success is to build on the work done in school through regular homework and reading.  New homework packs will be sent out shortly; homework (spelling, writing and maths) will be given on Fridays and collected in on Wednesdays every week. Homework will enable children to consolidate, revise and practise what they have been learning at school.  Although we want to encourage independence, regular reading and discussion with an adult is vital.  Children should be reading a wide variety of texts, not just their school reading book, so magazines, newspapers and TV guides are all useful. Children should aim to read 5 times per week and have an adult sign their reading diaries to confirm that they have read.  If you would like to comment on how they are reading, that would be useful for us to see.

PE

There will be at least two PE sessions every week, so it is important that children bring their PE kit to school every Monday so that they can make the most of these opportunities. The PE kit should be kept at school from Monday to Friday, taken home on Friday and brought back again the following Monday.  PE lessons keep children fit and healthy and improve their concentration as well as teaching them about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.  Class 8 will have PE every Monday and Tuesday from the beginning of term.

Finally, I would like to thank you for your continued support.  Together we can make sure that all children reach their potential and end the year with achievements that they are proud of.

If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact me at school.

Yours sincerely

Mrs A Thorpe

Welcome to Class 7

 Look at us at work! We all drew small self-portraits to be used in a whole school collaborative display. Now we are excited to see the finished result which will be displayed in the main hall soon!

Nursery Blog 8th September 2017

We would like to extend a big warm welcome back to our returning nursery children and their families and our new children and families.  The children are settling well and we are enjoying getting to know them!

Our afternoon children have been getting to know each other during our group snack time.

Every child should have received a pebble in a small bag, please could we ask that you return these with a word written on that is important to your family.  We really want our practice to reflect your family values at home.

We have been really busy exploring the nursery room and seeing what we can play with.  Children are being supported to learn our nursery rules.

Please can we remind you all to bring some wellies which can be left at nursery.  Children will use these everyday to access the outside space and also on a Tuesday when we visit the woods.  They love being out whatever the weather!  Our woodland learning is starting on Tuesday 26th September so please remember to bring a coat.

Please feel free to ask us anything about your child.  Home learning and library is starting on Wednesday.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Mrs Wolsey and Miss Ward.

GRADUATION!! 

Class have had a fantastic and final day in Year 1! They have each won an award for something that they have done well throughout the year. I am incredibly proud of all of the children for their hard work and efforts this year! They have all made excellent progress and I am so lucky to have been given the opportunity to be their teacher again for another year. Thank you to all parents/carers for your continued support and I really hope this continues next year! Have a well deserved break Class 3! Have fun, stay safe and come back ready to start our journey together in Year 2!

You’ve made me the proudest teacher in the world!

We have had a great year in Class 10.

It has been a pleasure to see you all mature and be your best selves.  Good luck to all of you.  Love and best wishes from The Class 10 Team.

 

Transition…

Class 9 have had a fab fun week doing many varied activities in class and have really enjoyed their transition lessons getting to know the children in their new classes for September. They have continued to create fantastic brilliant Britain models for homework like Stonehenge and Big Ben seen here.
