As a school, we will be focusing on the environment this year. We will be thinking about ways in which we can become carbon neutral by 2050. 

General routines and information


Please ensure book bags are brought to school every day. These should contain current reading books and a reading diary.It is important that you hear your child read regularly and comment or sign their reading diaries.


The children will also need a water bottle and outdoor shoes in school each day.


This year our P.E. lessons will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays. We would encourage P.E.kits to be brought into school on a Monday with all items clearly named, and taken home to be washed on a Friday. 


Please take the time to review our uniform guidance on the parent page.


The children will be given homework on a Wednesday to be completed and returned the following Monday. They will have spellings linked to our Phonics and Key words along with a Maths activity.


Forest School will resume on Friday 10th January. Children will remain in the same groups as last term and attend on alternate weeks:

10-01-20  Group A

17-01-20  Group B...

The last session for the year will be Friday 14th February.


If you have any concerns please don't hesitate to come and see me,


Mrs Kelly


Image result for spellings

Each week a list of spellings will be sent home with the homework. 

These spellings are linked to our phonic sounds and are taught in class. Children therefore have time to practise the spellings both in school and at home. 

Every Tuesday we have a spelling test in class in the back of the homework books. 


Thank you for your support. 

Mrs Kelly

Snow Day Activities


In the event of a 'Snow Day' here are some activities you could do...

After you have enjoyed the snow, can you draw or write about what you did and bring it into school to share the next day? I'd love to hear about what you've all been up to.
