Newsletter 17th January 2020

Dear parents and carers,

Construction Club

Don’t you just hate it when you tread on leftover Lego pieces?  Easy solution – give them to school.  If you have any Lego you no longer use, please pass it to the office so we can use it at our after-school construction club.  Thank you.

Home Learning

We are in the process of issuing updated logins for Abacus to enable your child to practise key maths skills at home.  If you have any questions, please talk to your child’s class teacher.

Uniform and PE Kit

Please remember that children may wear only stud earrings at school, and they need to be removed for PE and other physical activities, including swimming.  Please also ensure that your child is wearing suitable plain black footwear.

Lost Property

Please ensure that all clothing is named; we are accumulating an alarmingly large selection of anonymous garments.

This week we congratulated:

  • Willow Class: James, for great work on set 2 phonics;
  • Ash Class: Jack, for being up for a challenge in maths; Bella, for being a super friend;
  • Oak Class: Asher, for thoughtful comments in assembly; Ethan, for great enthusiasm in lessons;
  • Beech Class: Lily, for fabulous maths this week; Hollie, for amazing work when multiplying and dividing fractions;
  • Sport: Alex, for improved focus and engaged participation in sport this week;
  • Art: Zachary, for brilliant effort and great maturity;
  • Cookery: Flyn, for increased confidence in the kitchen.

Our Christian Value this term is Truthfulness.  Ask your child about Esau and Jacob.
