Well, what a busy term we have had! We have been busy preparing for our Nativity and despite not having an audience we worked so hard to make just as wonderful as every other year! 

I wanted to share with you some pictures of our Nativity: An Angel, A Star and A Stable.

Many thanks to all of you for the thoughtful cards and gifts and I wish you all a very merry Christmas!

See you in 2021!

We had a wonderful afternoon at Chelwood, we created portraits of the four seasons using leaves, moss and many other things we found when exploring the woods. We then played some games in the field and were very tired out! We can't wait to visit again very soon!




Well done on a fantastic first term back at school. We have produced some fantastic work using our topic book 'The Colour Monster', including sewing our own colour monster to take home! 

I hope you all have a wonderful half term and I look forward to seeing you again, fresh and ready for term 2!

Well done Stream Class for a great first full week back in school, you have adapted quickly to the changes and I am very proud of you all!

Important information:

  • Children must come to school wearing their PE kit. Regular PE sessions for Year 1/2 are: Wednesday afternoon. 

  • Homework this term has a strong focus on reading / phonics and comprehension skills. You should have received a letter sharing some great ways to extend the use of the book your child is reading from school. Please remember to also tick the sheet at the back of your child's reading record to indicate how many times they have read that week.

  • Children's book bags may not be checked every day, so please remind your child to hand any letters / messages to myself or the office.

  • Reading - Year 1 and Year 2 books will both be changed on a Tuesday and a Thursday - due to the current situation we are unable to give out extra books during the week, the letter that has been sent home with further suggestions should extend the use of your child's reading book. 

  • Spellings - every child has a set of spellings that build up to a collection of key words.  Once they can spell all the words in the collection correctly, confidently and independently they will be awarded their spelling badge.

If you have any further questions please come in to see me or send a message in the home school diary.  Miss Moore
