Foundation Stage 1 Happy Home Learning

This week the children have been learning the names of 2D shapes. Can you help your child to find something that is a square shape, a rectangular shape and a circular shape in your house? Also, could you encourage your child to put on their own coat and shoes?

Foundation 2     Homework            

Literacy:     Please help your child to sound each letter individually and then blend them together to read the following words: mat mad sad.

If possible, write each word.


Numeracy: Help your child to spot shapes in the environment e.g.: rectangle = door

Help them to find a rectangle, square, circle and triangle and then draw the shape in their Homework book

Class of the week 15h – 19th September

It’s fabulous to see that our new full time children are setting an excellent example. Well done to Unit 3 who achieved a level of 99.2% and are ‘Class of the Week’.

Attendance Drop In Session

We work closely with our Education Welfare Officer Laura Blakemore and would like to invite you to a drop in session on Thursday 23rd October. Laura will be available from 2.30pm for an informal chat, should you wish to discuss any aspect of your child’s attendance or special leave requests.



Absence – If your child is not able to attend school please call the school office on each day of absence giving a reason why. All illness is monitored for health & safety reasons so please give clear details of your child’s symptoms. If you do not call school the absence will be recorded as unauthorised and in certain circumstances we may ask the Education Welfare Officer to make a visit.

Playground Safety – If your child comes to school on their scooter please make sure they do not ride it on the school premises or leave it lying around on the paths or playgrounds. For their own safety and the safety of others, please ask them to dismount at the gate. Thank you

Book Bags

Due to increasing costs we have had to increase the price of our book bags with immediate effect. The new price is £5.50.

School Dinners

We would like to remind parents/carers that your child should keep to either a lunch provided by school or a packed lunch from home for a full week.

Spare Clothes

We are again in need of spare clothes, particularly girl’s pants and socks/tights. Any donations would be gratefully received.
