On  Tuesday 1st May we are going on a school trip to Hillier Gardens, a letter is ging home today (Monday 23rd April). Please return the letter so we know you have given permission for your child to go, and we know whether they are bringing their own packed lunch or need one provided by school. If your child is bringing their own lunch please put it in a named carrier bag, along with a pair of wellie boots in a labelled bag also. If the weather is warm sun hats and sun cream will be needed! If the weather is rainy and cold please obviously send in a coat!!



Weather. As the weather is starting to get warmer, please make sure you send your child in with a labelled sun hat and put sun cream on them before school. Children are welcome to bring in sun cream but it has to be applied by themselves.


P.E this term is OUTSIDE on THURSDAY. Please send a p.e kit in with your child (trainers/ outdoor footwear, tshirt and shorts as the weather is getting warmer) as we only have so many spares!..


Reading. Once children have read 25 times at home they recieve a book of their choice in assembly to take home and keep. Well done to all the children who read every single night!


Home Learning. Each week on a friday children come home with a new set of sounds which we have been learning that week in phonics. The sheets are for the children to practise recognising and writing at home, and then can be returned to school once completed.


Here is the link to a phonics game which we use alot in school to help with children's sounding out and blending. Click on Phase 2 or 3 and then Revise all sounds.

Hopefully you will be amazed!

Welcome back from the Easter holidays!

We all hope you had lots of fun (and ate lots of easter eggs!!)


This term our topic is Light and Dark focusing on Julia Donaldson.

This means lots of out learning jobs around the classrooms will be focus on talking about 'Light and Dark' sources - Where do we find them? How do they work?



A word bank will go home with children soon for you to have a look at some of the words we will be using in school.  We have uploaded these below:



This week in Year R we all went on a 'Light Walk' around the school to identify sources of light. Here are some pictures of what we found!

As mentioned above, P.E this term is Net and Wall games outside with Mr Holmes. 

This week we pretended to be in a jungle and had to move our bodies to make the shape of different animals. Then we all had our own spot, we had to run around and when Mr Holmes told us we had to run back and remember which spot was ours.

Th emain activity was throwing and catching. He showed us different way to catch the ball after our partner had thrown it to us.


Week before Easter Holidays...

We have been super busy this week making Easter crafts!

Thursday was a very exciting day, we walked to the Church in the morning for the Easter Service. In the afternoon we has a special assembly to say goodbye to Mrs Perriam and prizes were given out for attendance. Then we had a treat.... all of Year R went into the hall for an Easter game! (We were suppose to do an Easter hunt outside but the weather was too horrible!) We all lined up and had to be easter bunnies and jump down and around the cones in order to recieve a chocolate egg! It got very loud and giggly!!

Thursday 1st March; World Book Day!


Here are some activities to try at home with your favourite books:

  • Read your favourite book together with your family and try and answer some questions about it. See below.
  • Make some story puppets from your favourite book using lolly sticks and winding thread.
  • Write a book review about your favourite book and draw a picture of your favourite part.

You can bring any of these in to school to share with your class. 


We were all very impressed with the children's costumes for World Book Day!

The whole school went into the hall and each class did a parade to music to show off their costumes!

For our literacy, we wrote about what our character does in the story they are from and drew a picture to go with it. Here are some of our amazing costumes...
