Week beginning Monday 2nd March

Monday 2nd March - ART DAY

The children do not need to wear uniform that day as we will be using the printing techniques we have recently been learning. Please send your child into school in clothes that you won't mind getting messy with paint.

We have sent PE bags home today. Please check that your child has a pair of plimsolls for indoor PE that are the correct size. A number of children are saying that theirs are too small. All children need a pair of plimsolls for indoor PE. Trainers should only be worn for outdoor PE.

We are getting a lot of children telling us they have been told by parents to stay in at playtime for reasons of illness. Please note that unless we have a note from parents or the office has been informed, all children will be expected to go outside. The quiet zone is available for children to sit down if they wish.


A number of children are bringing in loose change without a clear idea of what it is for.  The kitchen have asked that all toast money is sent in a named envelope labelled with how many days it is for as they are struggling to work out who it belongs to. Thank you for your help.

We are starting to send Phonics homework home this week. This will be a mixture of real and alien words to read. Children should put sound lines and buttons on the words. Homework will be given out every Friday and should be returned to school the following Wednesday.

Thank you for sending in the first pieces of home learning. The children enjoyed sharing their creations, photos, videos and experiences.

In history we will be learning more about Samuel Pepys.

The children will be using laptops in ICT and learning about the Hindu faith in RE.

In Maths we will be learning about doubling and halving.

In English we will be wriying diary entries, thinking about writing in the first person and the past tense.

In English we will be retelling the story of Vlad the Flea in our own words.

Show and Tell will start on Thursday.  This week it will be Pendleton

The order is always Redgrave, Whitlock, Pendleton, Simmonds.

We have had a number of children bringing toys and soft toys in for Show and Tell. Please don't send these in.  Show and Tell is an opportunity to share something a bit out the ordinary such as certificates, souvenirs etc.

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.
