7th May 2021 Newsletter

As we are still not able to invite parents back into school for Friday assemblies, we will be including some information each week about what the children have been covering, along with details of awards given.


Infants have been Authors this week, with Years 1 and 2 writing ‘Epic Tiger Non-Fiction’ books and Reception writing ‘Penguin Adventure Stories’.  In science they have been exploring how they could quickly rescue their frozen Lego friend from the ice!

The Infant Star Award –         Livia for her Fabulous Team Work.

Infant Certificates: –               George – Maths Superstar

                                                Peter – Fantastic Science Predications


Lower Juniors have been delving into Norse Mythology.  Thinking about what the Vikings believed.  The land of the Gods is called Asgard.  They drew pictures of this and, using some written descriptions, drew their own interpretation of the land.  Look out for some examples on Facebook.  They have continued with ‘Electricity’ in science, investigating how switches work and putting them into a circuit.

Year 3 star of the week – James Hope for persevering in maths and working hard to use all the new methods we have been learning for division and multiplication.

Year 4 star of the week – Dexter Hill for improving his attitude towards reading at home and his homework.


Upper Juniors have been writing Cinquain Poems and Kennings this week.

Year 5 star of the week – Roxanne for perseverance in maths.

Year 6 star of the week – Lucas for this excellent Cinquain poem. 


Next Monday 10th May the upper juniors will be out all day at Hutton Roof for their climbing day.  A detailed information sheet is included with their newsletter today.  Please remember their packed lunch, drink, warm clothing and a waterproof.


Please can we remind parents to keep up to date with payments for both dinners and early morning club. Email reminders have been sent out today to any parents with significant balances.


The Year 6s are starting to get excited about celebrating the end of their time at school. Mark Norris and Pierra Ltd have generously covered the cost of a Leavers’ Hoody for each of them. He would love to share some pictures of the Year 6s in their hoodies on his website / social media. Please let us know if you do not want your child to appear in these photos. 


 A group of parents have continued to work hard in the garden area this week and we are very grateful for this, it’s looking really good!
