Newsletter – 24th February 2023

Message from the Headteacher,

Thank you to all those who came celebration assembly and to have a look at the children’s work. I know the children really enjoyed sharing their hard work with you all. Also thank you to all the children who took part in the art competition. They are now framed and on display in school.

Learning highlights this week:

  • Owls Class have read the book Jasper’s Beanstalk and planted beans to grow our own beanstalks. In maths we have been learning to say one more and one less than a number. We have also looked carefully at the different parts of plants and learnt the names and function of each one.
  • Parrots Class have begun reading SPYDER by Matt Car in English and learning about animals and living things in science. In maths they have been learning about pictograms and tally charts.
  • Eagles Class have been exploring descriptive language in English. In maths they have been learning about length and measurements, including km, m, cm and mm. In history they have begun to think about why Emperor Claudius left Italy to invade Britain.
  • Penguins Class have started learning about the narrative poem The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes and continued to learn more about Afghanistan.

    World Book Day has crept up on us again. On Thursday the children can come in dressed as a character from a book or in non-uniform and bring in their favourite book to share with their class. Please look out for the £1 book tokens coming home with the children.

    There are lots of ideas of how you can join in at home here.

    Have a good weekend,

    We are a nut free school.

    Families please note that we are strictly a nut free school. Please ensure that no nut products are brought into school or included in packed lunches (even on school trips). Please also ensure that no nut products are consumed within the school grounds at any time of day. Thank you.
