PE Days

Class NamePE Day





As we do not recommend that parents/ carers give out sweets or treats to celebrate their child's birthday, we will be continuing with non-uniform days to celebrate children's birthdays. On your child's birthday (or the day closest to it, if it falls on a weekend or during the holidays), your child may come to school in their own clothes in recognition of their special day!


Please ensure that ALL school uniform is clearly labelled including lunchboxes and water bottles. The children are responsible for their own belongings during the school day. 


Remember to let your child's class teacher know if your child is going home with another parent, or will be collected by someone different. Alternatively, ring or email the school office who will inform your child's class teacher.

Harvest Performances

The harvest performances are taking place as follows:

Parent's Evenings - October 2022

Parent's Evenings are taking place on Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th October 2022. Please ensure that you have returned your child's letter with your time and date preferences indicated. We will do our best to accommodate these - appointments are made on a first-come, first-served basis.


These meetings will focus on how your child has settled into their new class and how they are engaging with their learning.


Please enter the school using the Fernhill Road Gate and come in via the 'old hall doors' near the staff car park. The meetings will take place in the school hall.


We look forward to meeting as many of you as possible!

Reading books and homework


Reading books should be read three times a week at home. This helps to improve their decoding skills, fluency and understanding of the text being read. Please remember to make a note in your child's reading diary, every time they read. Reading books will be changed every Thursday.


Homework is handed out on Fridays. This includes some spelling practice of harder to read and spell words (HRS words), previously known as common exception words, and handwriting practice to improve automaticity. If a child is able to form letters of the correct size and orientation automatically, this drastically reduces their cognitive load when writing, freeing up their brain to focus on the content. If they also have the harder to read and spell words secured, this frees up even more brain space!


For every piece of homework handed in, the class earns a marble in the jar towards their end of week reward! It's a team effort!


Every child also has a Numbots log in which was shared in July. This can be accessed at any time by the children and is an excellent place to practice the foundations of mathematics - counting, subitising, place value and simple addition and subtraction. If you need reminding of your child's Numbots details, please ask their class teacher or pop a message onto Tapestry.
