Latest updates from our school
Luna and Jacob from Year 4 demonstrate how to use your number bond cards and how to record your work in your planners.
Well done to all of our Achievement Assembly winners this week at our first special assembly of the new year. You have all been recognised by your teachers for your hard work and effort in Mathematics over the last two weeks. Also, well done to Gabriel for a stunning piece of science work about the Solar System and a superb attitude in school. For this, you earned the Headteacher's Award this week!
The teachers also announced our first group of 'DEPENDABLES', our children who always adhere to the school non-negotiables.
Thank you for all the support you have shown me and your child over the past two weeks. The engagement with the homework planners has been encouraging to see too. Next week, I will hand out our spelling lists and number Bonds cards.
Below, I have attached the spelling lists and a link to some games and activities that will help to support your child whilst they learn their spellings. Please note that your child's first spelling test will be on Monday 23rd September.

On Monday, your child will receive a set of cards to help them learn their number bonds. Stay tuned for a video showing you how to use the cards. In the meantime, here is a link to 'Hit the Button'. Your child has played 'Hit the Button' in class and we have found this a fun and engaging way to learn number bonds.
On a final note, your child should have been set a reading task. This will be due back at school on Friday. If you have any queries regarding homework or the homework planner, please don't hesitate to contact me at school.
Kind regards, Mr Gordon.
We got ready, allocated jobs and headed down to the wood.
After a warm drink by the fire, we learned a couple of knots and made our woodland badges.
Before heading home, we discussed our clothing choices - some of the children were a little chilly so decided they were going to bring some extra layers next week.
Thanks to parents for helping children with quality gear for this week's session!
We started with a kit check before allocating everyone a TB job.
In the wood, we were greeted by a warm fire in TBHQ, and from here we discussed some of the safety rules in the wood.
We then had a look round the site, and chatted about some of the things that we found along the way.
Back in TBHQ, we had a hot chocky whilst listening to a story. We finished by making our woodland ID badges - essential in ensuring Poppy, Queen of the Munchkins, knows who we all are.
Big thanks to parents for ensuring children had all the right gear!
