We’ve used iPads to draw pictures for the story

We are really excited that the PTA are giving us some money and helping us find some helpers to work on our outdoor area. We would love our children to be involved too so below are some of our ideas and the things you might be able to help us with...

 Thank you for the pre-holed bottle lids some of you have started to bring in... if you have any more or COTTON REELS please bring them in! we'd like to create hanging decorations.

Check out the plastic bottle planters!

Any old CD's- look how they can make something look extra interesting!

We'd love to use pallettes to create some planters- we'll need some seeds/ young plants and soil.

Big cable reels we could turn into little tables... have a look at these pictures...

Thank you to all the parents and carers who have been listening to your child read, watch this space for our introduction to the library card system which the older classes already have. We really hope you can read with your child 3 times a week.



Thank you too to all our parents and carers that help our games afternoons- only 2 more this half term! Check out the photos below- we’ve been looking at playing memory games and trying to develop strategy’s (like remembering where pairs are or picking up different cards each time).

Our P.E day is Wednesday. Sometimes this can change if other things are happening school, so PLEASE try to have your P.E kits in school everyday (they can stay hanging up on your child's peg!). We will send them home each half term for a wash!

Make sure ALL of your child's clothes are named, P.E kits, jumpers, EVERYTHING (even socks, tights and plimsolls because you'll be surprised how they lose their owners!). We make every effort to ensure each child has the correct belongings at the end of each P.E session.

Forest School is on a Thursday. We will probably be going as half a class so the children will be going every other week. Please send your child with a waterproof jacket, trousers and wellies. It would be best if Forest School outfits could be kept in school all week. We will send it home if it gets muddy or wet.
