Dear Parents and Carers

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break.

We have had a really great first week back and I have been proud of the children’s positive attitudes and good behaviour all week. The children have started their new topics with a bang. Year 2 have been exploring the local area and making maps for their topic Street Detective and year 4 are enjoying a dress-up day today for their 1066 topic.

Next week we have a parents workshop on Maths Mastery for parents of Key Stage 1 children. It will be led by Mrs Bootes in the hall at 2.00pm on Wednesday and we hope to see you there. We have made lots of changes to the way we are teaching mathematics and it will be a hands-on session with your children, where Mrs Bootes will share some fun activities and games you can play at home.

Another few dates for your diaries are:

  • Year 1 Parent Workshop on the Phonics Screening Check –Thursday 25th January (9.00am / 2.45pm/ 5.30pm)
  • National Story Telling Day Friday 2nd February – Family members are invited to come and read stories to their child’s class from 2.30pm
  • Parent Workshop on Internet Safety – Monday 5th February (9.00am / 2.45pm / 5.30pm)
  • Topic Landings for Years 1, 2 and 3 – 8th February 2.45 – 3.10pm
  • Topic Landings for Years 4, 5 and 6 – 9th February 2.45 – 3.10pm
  • Spring term parent and carer consultations Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th March

On Thursday next week, Miss Delderfield will be opening the small playground for early bird games and dancing from 8.30, so make sure you arrive early to join in the fun. There will be a special treat for the first 5 children from every class too.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes

Miss Williams
