Class Structures and start times/ finish times

We will be in touch next week with the names of the class teachers for each year as well as new start and finish times. We will return to using our original gate on Low Road (currently Jaguars gate) and both gates on Station Road. I hope that the addition of another gate will help now that we have more pupils in school. I would request your help with not allowing children to climb on gates or walls and with avoiding parking on the no parking zones.

Year 1 have been busy creating sunflowers for our art display.

Please take our survey- final few days.

Thank you for your donations. We will keep this link open until the end of term.

Read, Write, Inc phonics programme.

We have started to use the above phonics programme. Initially all pupils in FS2, Year 1 and Year 2 will be taught daily phonics using the programme and as time goes on we will incorporate any child across the school who has gaps in their phonic knowledge. Please watch the short video below for more information.

Don’t forget our Reading Challenge – stickers counted on Thursday,

Reading is such an important skill and we really need all children to be reading regularly at home. We do have increasing numbers of children earning stickers on their reading charts and being able to choose something from the School Council shop. Thank you for your support with this and keep reading.

I hope you have a good day and a relaxing weekend.
