This Week:


We've had an amazing creative curriculum week this week! See the pictures below to see what we've been up to!


In Year 1 we are aiming for, age appropriate, fluent readers by the end of the summer term. So.... The children all now have a reading sticker chart. If they read three times at home (signed in their record by an adult) then they will get a sticker on their chart. When they have 4 stickers they will be able to choose a prize from the 'reading prize box'! 

We are looking forward to the positive effect this should have on their reading!

Reading books: 

The children will be issued a new book every Friday. Reading records need to be filled in at least three times a week by an adult at home and brought into school on Wednesday for us to check.

Please bring all reading books back into school on Wednesday as the books are used in our guided reading sessions before being sent home. It is really important books come back as they are used across the Key Stage. If they are not returned there is not enough for guided reading in school. Please note, you do not need to bring your child's books in until Wednesday, then the book bag will remain in school until Friday. 


Please remember to send your child in with a water bottle, fruit and vegetables snacks are provided.  



The children will be bringing home a book weekly from the school library. Please ensure this is returned the following week for a new one to be issued. 



Spellings will be given out on Friday and tested on Wednesday.  


PE days: Mondays and Thursday - please ensure the children come in wearing their PE kits.


P.E. Kit:

Black shorts 

Green T – shirt.       


Black jogging bottoms and black jumper top for the winter  


Forest School:

Once a fortnight, children will be taking part in forest school on site with Mrs. Selwood. Please provide a pair of named Wellington boots to stay at school on their pegs. The children will attend forest school come rain or shine so please ensure they always have a suitable coat in school on this day.
