 We hope you have had a lovely half term!

 Sparkle and Shine

Our topic this term is Sparkle and Shine. For our stunning start we are asking the children to come to school, on Wednesday 30th October, wearing something sparkly, this can be a whole outfit or just one item.

2 Simple Open Afternoon

A big thank you to all of you who came to our open afternoon, the children had a wonderful time showing you all of their learning and it was amazing to see how many of you sent us a picture! Thank you to all who have continued sharing pictures from home during half term, we love seeing them all. Please continue to keep us up to date with learning at home!

If there are any problems preventing you from sharing experiences at home via 2Simple please do come in and speak to Miss Romaine.

Reading at Home:

Thank you to all your support reading with your children at home, it really does make such a difference. If your child reads at home three or more times they will receive a sticker and house points so don’t forget to write in their diary!

Please continue to let your child teach you their phonics, remember to encourage your child to teach you both the letter name and the sound.

Parent Helpers:

We have been very lucky in the past to have had parents who have come in and shared what they do for a living or shared their expertise and knowledge about their hobbies and interests. The children really love it, it helps bring their learning to life! If you would like to come in, please do come and speak to a member of the team!

Supporting Learning at Home:

In your child’s learning journal you will find logins for Education City, Learning Platform and Purple Mash, please login, explore some games and let us know your feedback.


Please keep sending in your child’s WOW leaves, we love celebrating all their super progress! If you need more please ask.

Class R production

Our EYFS production this year will be on Wednesday 18th December, time to be confirmed.

As always if there is anything at all please come and see us. Here’s to a super half term.

Many thanks.
