We hope you have had a lovely Christmas and are ready for our new term! We are learning about Traditional Tales.
Welcome to all our new children who have settled in very quickly. A big 'well done', for coming into school so well.
We have updated our page to include our Curriculum Map for our topic Ourselves and Our School. This will ensure that you stay in touch with what your child is learning at school and help to further develop their skills at home.
Please read stories and share books every night so that you can build in time to hear your child read to you when the time comes.
You will be invited to come into school to see how phonics is taught. Do also find 'Mr Thorne' on Youtube where there is information about how to pronounce the phonemes and digraphs.
Children that read each night to practise the skills they have been taught are the children who are most confident in school.
Our P.E days in 2017 - 2018 are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure that all earrings are removed otherwise your child will unfortunately not be able to join in with the rest of their class.
Birthday assembly will be every Wednesday at 2.45pm. Parents are encouraged to attend to watch their child blow out the candles and receive a special birthday sticker from Mrs Ireland. Birthday weeks start on the Sunday and end the following Saturday, so please join us in celebrating on the Wednesday of your child's birthday week. Sorry but if your child is absent from their assembly because you have taken them on holiday, they will miss their birthday assembly at school and this will not be repeated on their return.
Please remember to complete and return school dinner menus for the following week. Food has to be ordered in advance and meals are cooked according to that order. Please do not expect a meal if you have not ordered it in advance.
Please do not send your child with a packed lunch if you have ordered a meal as that meal will be wasted. We cannot change the order mid-week. If you wish to change your child's order please speak to office staff and they will change it for the following week.
However if staff see that a child is not eating anything at all they may well suggest they bring their own lunch until they are happy to eat a school hot meal.
