Hello all

As part of our topic work 'Sparkle and Shine' we are going to be looking at Christmas of the past both within the children's life time and beyond.  We would therefore be very grateful if you could send into school a photo of your child celebrating Christmas (at any age - first Christmas, last year etc) and another one of a parent/relative celebrating Christmas when they were younger to aide our discussions.  If you could send them in (with a name on the back) for TUESDAY 8th DECEMBER 2020 that would be fantastic.

Many thanks

Mrs Jackson 



Hello all

Just a few messages/reminders.

1. Please can you make sure that children have their PE tracksuits in school.  Due to covid we have to do PE outside and it is getting very chilly now!

2. Children with long hair must have it tied back for health and safety (and nit) reasons.  I have explained to the children today that half up/half down hairstyles are lovely but unfortunately the hair must be tied back completely.  

3. Please can all children's reading books be in school everyday regardless of whether it is their book changing day or not.  We listen to each child read at least once a week and check their reading records to see how they are getting on at home with their reading which is obviously tricky if their books are not at school. 

4. Due to changes to timetables I have tweaked our book changing days.  Please see the updated table below.


Please see the homework section of this page for our homework this half term.



I hope you all had a lovely half term.  From the posts on Tapestry you have all been very busy.

We are due to have our first PE session tomorrow.  Unfortunately, due to covid guidance, all PE sessions have to be outside.  Please can you therefore ensure your child has a full PE kit including tracksuit and trainers.  Our slot is Tuesday mornings but this is flexible and may have to move to a different day if it is pouring down with rain.

Finally, please remember our new pick up time is 3:05-3:20.

Thank you for your support

Mrs Jackson
