Please make sure you check out the Files to Download section for letters and leaflets throughout the year.

Term 1A

Mrs Askey will teacher Monday to Friday each week, supported by Mrs Hinde or Mrs Brumby. Mrs Riley will teach every Friday.

P.E days are Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child is wearing the correct P.E kit. We not not require your chid to change into a kit at school as this saves time.

Please make sure your child has a water bottle filled with fresh water everyday and appropraite footwear and coats, weather dependent.

It is very important that your child operates independently in school so teaching your child to zip up their own coats, tie their own shoe laces, use a knife and fork properly and use the toilet is encouraged at home. Staff are aware of individuals needs and these can be discussed privatelty but there is an expectation that these skills are taught at home and supported at school. 


Your your child will have brought home their first reading book and a new reading log accompanied by a letter to explain how the reading log is to be used this year. Basically, there needs to be at least three instances of reading at home recorded in the log and signed by an adult at home. Each week your child will move their 'Reading Rocket' around the planet in a race to reach the finish line by the end of the half term. Children who successfully reach the finish line within this time will recieve a reward.

Please be aware that although it is important to read to and share a book with your child, it is vital that they practice reading their school banded book as much as possible. Sounding out and blending the phonemes in words and spotting those non- decodable words (tricky words) will develop their fluency and thus open up a wider range of books that they can enjoy by themselves. 

Your child will be listenind to read and assessed once at week and their book may be changed if appropriate to do so. Teachers may not change a book if they are not reading their current book fluently. Books should be matched to their phonic ability where possible.

Please continue to read to your child, help them to listen to stories and information on line and using the school Virtual Libray. Later in the term your child will be encouraged to choose any book from our school library to anjoy at home per week. 


This half term we are learning about Castles. Please see the class newsletter in Files to Download for details per subject. English, maths, science and the foundation subjecte e.g. history, will be centred around castles and people who lived and worked in castles. 

WANTED! Your child will be making their own moving drawbridge for this topic. Please can you send your child to school with an empty cereal box and we would be happy to take in any spares too. This will form part of the 'Barbican'.


*Reading X3 at home a week.
