Weekly update


Friday, 11th January, 2019

Welcome back to Spring term, 2019.  We hope you all had a great Christmas and want to wish everyone Happy New Year!  We have started 2019 with a launch into 'Magic and Mystery'.  We are using a classic story:  The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, and the children are loving it.  We will be using the book to set the scene for all our other learning.  In maths, we are close to finishing a block on multiplication.  Next week, we will be assessing the children and then moving on to some measurement.    


Key dates:

Thursday 17th 3:30 Pop up charity shop (in small hall)

Parents' evenings:  26th, 27th and 28th February (forms not out yet!)



If you don't have access to the internet, your child can complete homework in school.  Please let us know, as Friday is too late to inform us.  Homework club resumes next week!


Spelling homework:


Your child has a personal spelling list to learn this week. This is on a sheet in their purple books.



Children should try and read 4-5 times a week at home and record this in their reading record.  Remember to put next to any reading completed at home.  Thank you.



Your child has a times table target that is recorded in their purple book.  One or all of their tests for homework should reflect this target.   

please complete online multiplication tables test at .

Children can choose the tables to test - please choose 40 questions. Do this twice over the week and record scores into purple homework books.

On the last Wednesday there will be NO school dinners or normal lunchtime.  We have a bring and share lunch in every class as part of our party day.


To ensure we have a balance, please read through this list and tell your child what we can tick off for the party, and ensure they bring this in next Wednesday.  We will ask them this Wednesday what they will be contributing.  Thank you.
