Our current RSHE topic is 'Living in a Wider World'. We would love to have visitors who work in the public sector that make our world a better, safer place. If you, or someone close to you, works in the emergency services, is a charity worker, a sports coach, does voluntary work or something like this, we would love to have you in to share your experiences with the children. 

Please contact your child's teacher if you can help or if you have any questions.


Personal Property

If children are attaching key chains on bags please be aware that teachers are not responsible for the loss of them. Teachers will be talking to the children about respecting other people's property.


Artists and designers needed

We will be studying expressionism and modernism in Year 1. Are you a painter, curator or artist and want to come in to talk about and show some of your art pieces? Please let your class teachers know.


Weekly homework checklist:

  1. Spellings - see below for new spellings each week.
  2. Numbots - Can you reach your 10 minute weekly goal? 
  3. Learn your number bonds target number.

        Your sheet will tell you what level you are on.

   4. Read at least 5 times per week.



We would like to request that passwords for Purple Mash and Numbots are not changed at home. Teachers have a copy of all pupil log ins and passwords for use during lessons. 


It would be great if children can practice their computer keyboard and mouse skills at home: finding the letters of the alphabet, making a capital letter, # and @ symbols. 




Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. Complete your child’s reading record each time they read. Remember it doesn’t always have to be their school book. Reading records and reading books should be sent into school daily.


Numbots for Mathematics

Why do we use Numbots? Please read here to find out more about Numbots.  The programme helps children develop a secure understanding of numbers bonds using multiple representations. This consolidates learning completed in school. Children should aim to do Numbots every week for at least 10 minutes. We would like to thank you for all the support at home.

Number Bond Challenge

Every Thursday children will be given  a Number Bond Challenge to complete within two minutes. They will begin with Number Bonds to 5. If children complete the challenge successfully, they will move to the next challenge the following week.
