What are we doing this week?

On Monday the photographer will be taking class photos. Please make sure your child comes to school with a jumper or cardigan.

Phonics screener results will be released with reports in July.

Please can children not come into school wearing  jewellery (only stud earrings) 

Reminder: No phonics homework due this week.

Sports Day practice has started. All children need trainers that can be kept in school until the end of term. We will not be practicing on set days.

This week we will be carrying out short assessments in English and Maths to inform our future planning and assess progress this year.  The children do not need to prepare anything for this.

In topic we will be investigating where we find particular minibeasts in the school grounds.  This week is also National Sports Week so we will be taking part in 15 minutes extra sporting activity every day.


Looking on the Year 1 page is the best way to find out information. Please do not assume that both classes are doing the same thing all the time.

SHOW AND TELL - This week it is Pendleton.

To clarify how Show and Tell works - each group takes turns on a four weekly rotation, meaning that each child has the opportunity to share once every four weeks.  Please don't send in things for show and tell unless it is your child's week as we do not have the time to show things for more than one group and want each child to have the time they need so they feel their contribution is valued.  Please don't send toys in for show and tell.

A quick reminder: staff do not look inside childrens' reading folders every day. We ask children at the start of each day to take out any letters, toast money etc and give them to staff. Please encourage your child to develop this independence by letting them know before school if there is something that they need to give to a teacher.

Please ensure your child has a waterproof coat every day as we will be going outside at playtimes unless the rain is too severe.

If your child has sore lips and wants to use a lip balm in school please send in unscented and unflavoured varieties.  Children can apply balm at the start of play and lunchtimes but otherwise, they should remain in bags.

Please remember water bottles should only contain water. Please do not send in juice.
