Hello everyone,

As part of our wellbeing curriculum, we shared the song 'pantosaurus' and discussed the PANTs rule this afternoon.  The children may come home and want to chat to you about it, so I have attached a link to the resources below.

Many thanks

A couple of notices...

Just a reminder, it is the Easter Bonnet parade tomorrow (26th March) at 2:30pm in the main playground.  Please send the completed bonnets tomorrow morning.

Hello everyone,

I hope you have had a lovely half term - it's hard to believe that we are already half way through the children's first year at F&B.

Our new topic is half term is 'Once upon a time'.  I have uploaded homework suggestions onto the homework section of this page so that you can support the children's learning at home.

Date for your diary...

On Friday the 8th of March Reception would like to welcome any special ladies in their lives e.g. mummy's, nanny's, aunties, big sisters, neighbours etc to come into school at 3pm to share a story together from our book area and enjoy a glass of squash and a biscuit. 

We hope you can make it!

Hello all

To support our topic of 'Snow and Ice', the children have requested to have an 'Ice party'. We are going to be using this opportunity to do lots of writing, e.g. party invitations, party game planning etc.  We are going to be working on our DT skills to make sandwiches for our party and our PSED and PE skills to work together to play team games.  In order to support this, we would be very grateful if you could send to school some clothes for the children to wear for our party, e.g. frozen dresses, blue colours - anything the children deem to be ice clothes! Please send the clothes in on the day in a named carrier bag for the children to change into for the party.

We would also be grateful for a £1 voluntary contribution to go towards the cost of the DT resources.

Many thanks




Hello all,

Next Tuesday afternoon is our class Christmas party. I am putting out a list of suggested party food after school so that you can sign up for something to bring to our party, if you are able to.  Please can you make sure that any biscuits/cakes that are brought in are in their packaging as we do have some children with dietary requirements.  

Thank you

Miss Youngman



Some parents have asked me for a list of the children's names in Reception to help with writing Christmas cards.  I have put a list of first names on the homework section of this page.

Many thanks

Thank you to everyone that was able to make the meeting this morning.  Those that couldn't, the PowerPoint shared is below with all the information.

One thing I forgot to mention... please make sure that your child's reading book is in school every day, even if it is not their book changing day, as adults in school listen to the children read during the course of the week.

Many thanks

Miss Youngman
