Notices & Reminders


A letter will be coming home today to give you information about an online maths app that we would like the children to use. The children have been given their logins and have been shown how the app works. They will also be given some opportunities to use the app in school if they are unable to access it at home.

The website address is:-

If you have any questions/problems please come and see me.



Topic update

Please see the box below for details about our topic for this term.

The children will be bringing a letter home today to invite you in to talk about your favourite toy (a photo of it would be great or bring it in if you still have it!). I would like to run this session on Friday 22nd November at 8:45am. It would involve you sitting at a table and discussing your toy with a small group of children; you won't have to present in front of the whole class! This is open to any family member that would be willing to come in - mums, dads, grandmas, grandads, aunts, uncles etc. Please let me know if you can make it so that I have a rough idea of numbers. 

Don't forget toy dressing up day next Tuesday (19.11.19) where the children (and staff!) can come to school dressed as their favourite toy. If you have any questions about this please do come and ask.



Topic dressing up day

On Tuesday 19th November 2019 we will be having a toys dressing up day. The children can come to school dressed as their favourite toy. This could be simply a t-shirt with a picture of their favourite toy on, or it could be a costume they might have. If you have any questions please come and ask.



Welcome Back

I hope you all had a great half term break. We have a really busy term ahead of us so please keep checking this page for any notices or pop in and see us if you have any questions.

Our topic this term is Toys - more specific details about this will follow. We have discussed some of the things that the children would like to do this term so hopefully we will be able to fit everything in! The children will have the opportunity to bring their favourite toy into school and also to dress up as a toy - more details and dates will follow. We would also like to find out about the different types of toys our parents and grandparents played with. If any mums, dads or other family members would like to volunteer to send in a toy they may still have or come in and talk about their toys we would be extremely grateful! Just pop in and let us know and we will arrange a suitable day and time.

During the term we will be making our own toys. Please could you send in any small boxes/cartons and shoe boxes if you have any so that we can make our models. 

This week we have been talking about our favourite books as we will be producing work for a reading display in the school. Please could the children bring in their favourite book before Friday so that we can share them in class and take some photos.

Reading mornings will continue this term on Wednesday mornings. I hope you can come along and join us.

If you have any questions about any of the above please do come and ask us.

Many thanks

Nancy Nicolson
