Term Notices


Owls Class timetable for this term is stored above.  It highlights the general plan for the next half term, however this is flexible and can sometimes change if special events arise.


PE will be on Monday afternoon after half term, please ensure that your children have their PE kits in school all the time and that all their clothing is named.  This term we will reschedule our PE to a different afternoon.


Outdoor Learning will begin next Monday afternoon and will run every Monday for the rest of this half term.  If you are available to help and would like to please can I ask that you arrive at school just before 1pm as we will try to leave promptly at 1pm.



Please can we ask that your child only has one key ring on their bag for identification purposes. With too many key rings on their bags the children find it hard to fit all their bags in their individual tray.


Many thanks

Mrs Rutherford, Mrs Bradford



Show and Tell

Show and Tell will be "What's in the bag" again this year.  Children will be chosen at random.   They will choose a bag, take it home, place something inside and bring it back the following Friday.  They will then be asked questions by their peers as they try to guess what is in the bag. 


Mathletics club

Held on a Thursday after school starting Thursday 20th for 30 minutes. 

  • As this club is very popular we have to restrict the number of children who attend to 15, 5 per key stage 1 class. 
  • A sign up sheet will be placed on the classroom doors on a Monday morning for that week.  If your child attends breakfast and you are not their on Monday mornings but would like your child to attend mathletics please email via the office.  
  • We hope that all children will have the opportunity to attend this club at some point throughout the term.

Readers Workshop

Reading takes place every afternoon.  If you are able and would like to help at any time please speak to Mrs Rutherford or Mrs Bradford.







Please read daily with your child even if you can only manage a couple of pages, it really has a huge impact.



Please help your child to learn their spellings.  Using look, cover, write, check is a good strategy.

(Look at the word and individual letters carefully, say them out loud, are there any tricky bits you need to remember?, cover the word up, have a go at writing it, look back at the word and check did you get it right?)  



Each week I will put the area we are learning about above.  If you would like to support your child in maths then click on the link to this website below and log in.  Your child's login details are in the front of their reading diaries.  You can choose the relevant topic to work on.
