6th November - Week 10 Update

Education City homework has resumed this week and will continue now until Christmas. It will be run as before - set every Friday for the following Friday - and I hope you are enjoying completing it children! Reading will continue daily until Christmas - the children are really improving with this extra reading - but after Christmas we will move to three times a week for everyone. I will let you know around Christmas time which days your child will be reading. Purple Mash, the online learning platform, has also opened its annual Christmas Card Competition - if you think your child might be interested, please log onto their site for details.

Have a lovely weekend

We still have two school t-shirts and four school jumpers (from the last four weeks) in our lost property box in Y1. Please check this box if your child is missing an item of uniform.

24th September - Week 4 Update

Thanks again parents for supporting your children with the home reading and weekly homework - most children are reading every night so THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS! A new unit of homework has been set on Education City today and this will run as usual for a week - children who have been completing this homework have been telling me how much they are enjoying the activities! Just a reminder that you DO NOT need to send pumps in for P.E. days - please just send children to school wearing trainers those days.

many thanks

11th September - WEEK 2 Update


Just to let you know the first homework has been set this week on Education City and Education City log-in cards have been attached to the front of yellow reading record diaries. It will last for a week and new homework will be set again next Friday. Please send in a message A.S.A.P. if you cannot access this.

Pro Skills Sport After School Club

4th September Week 1 Update

Hopefully we are back to more of a normal routine now - the children have been very good, settling down to their new classroom and to all our new ways of working!

Reading Routines:

Reading will begin Monday 7th in class every day and books will be sent home every day to be read at home - either a new book or the same one to be repeated, in order to build fluency.  Once this book has been read at home, please sign the reading record and return it with the reading book the next day so that a new book can be sent home. 


School dinner is currently a packed lunch only and we can provide one for every child. Because of the needs for additional hygiene, morning snack is limited to 10.30, just before playtime and lunch is served at 12.00. We hope that we will be receiving a fruit delivery daily, but this hasn't started yet, so please ensure your child has a morning snack. During the afternoon, children can snack at any time (they will be asked to wash hands before this) so please send in plenty of snacks for the whole day for your child. It is also important to send in an individual drink bottle daily, as milk is currently not being provided for the children.


As stated before, P.E. will be on Monday and Thursday and it will start next week. Please send children into school already dressed in outdoor P.E. kits on both these days.


Homework will be set online on Education City every Friday and this will begin next Friday,  11th September. Log-ins will be attached to the front of yellow reading record diaries. Any phonics sets, Magic Moments books etc. that were sent home in YR will no longer be sent home and these are now yours to keep. We will also be sending home your child's books from YR next week and these are also yours to keep.

General reminders:

Children are encouraged to have their own hand sanitiser and tissues to keep in their individual drawers in class but do not require pencil cases as they have individual pencil pots.


Hopefully this is all clear, but any questions please feel free to ask me.

Have a lovely weekend

Miss Roberts
