It was lovely to see lots of you join our 'Meet the Teacher' zoom this morning - thank you! It was a little odd being back on Zoom again after so long. I believe I have sent out all logins and documents now to the parents that requested them; if I've missed you, please could you just drop me an email to jog my memory :). 

For any parents who were unable to join this morning, I've uploaded the powerpoint to the 'Homework' section. 

Miss Howes and Mrs Higgs. 



We are beginning to gather a collection of photographs that would be lovely to post on Seesaw  but we haven't yet had permission slips back from all of the children. Could these please be returned as soon as possible? If you have misplaced your form and would like another or would like to discuss how Seesaw is used in school before you sign please let us know.

Miss Howes and Mrs Higgs.



Homework has now been uploaded to the homework page. 



What a quick first week back. The children have all worked really hard this week - we are very proud of them. What a great start!

Well done to the class for winning the attendance, Numbots and tidy classroom awards this week! WOW! 

Reading books - We have sent reading books home with the children today. We will be continuing to reading with them and adjust their level when appropriate.

Homework guidance will be issued soon, in the meantime please read regularly with your child and get them on numbots 3+ times per week.  

We hope you have a lovely, restful weekend. Take care. 

Mrs Higgs and Miss Howes


I hope the children enjoyed their first day back with us today - the time certainly flew by, although the children could tell me it was lunchtime by the rumbles in their tummies!!

All of the children worked extremely hard all day and I was so impressed with the way they have taken the difficult transition from EYFS to KS1 in their stride. 

I am very conscious that the children have not brought home reading books and wanted to reassure you that we are working on this. As it is the beginning of a new year, we wanted to hear each child read before allocating their books to make sure that where they left of in July is still a good fit. This will take a little while so please bear with us. In the meantime, it would be fantastic if you kept up the good practise of sharing a story together in the evenings to keep the reading going :) We've read two stories at school today!

Kind regards, 

Miss Howes.
