Key Stage 1 Nativity

Just a reminder that the Key Stage 1 Nativity will be taking place on Tuesday 19th December and Wednesday 2oth December.

We have been asked that the children dress as people of Bethlehem. Something as simple as a dressing gown and tea towel could be used. Please can your child bring their costume into school by Friday 15th December in a named carrier bag.

Many thanks.



Year 1 Homework

There is a new video on the maths with parents website. It is all about ‘addition and subtraction of 1s and 10s’. We hope you enjoy it! Spellings this week are hereallaskedlooked and make.

Continuing from last week, can your child spot any verbs in their reading book. If they can, can they think of a different verb to replace it. We had great fun doing this in the gingerbread man so instead of ‘run run…’ we had ‘jump jump’ ‘skip skip’ etc.

Many thanks

Reception – Travelling Crib

Could you offer Mary and Joseph a room for the night?

In addition to our story sacks, Reception children will also bring home a  travelling crib bag.  This  is a lovely, unique way to help families prepare for Christmas.In the bag, there are instructions for you to follow. Your child can have the bag for two evenings then please return the bag back as we would like all reception children to take part in the travelling crib.  If you receive the bag on a Friday, please can you return it on a Monday. Many thanks, we hope you enjoy taking part in this special activity.



Another Great Week in Reception/ Year 1

We have had another lovely week in Reception/ Year 1.

The week started with our fantastic Reception and KS1 exhibition in the hall after school on Monday.  Thank you to all parents and carers who managed to make it. The children really enjoyed showing you what we have been learning about in our topic.

In science, we have been testing different materials to see which would make the best bridge. We have been reading the story of the gingerbread man and wanted to make a strong bridge for the gingerbread to cross!


We had a visit from Ms Roberto (Iris’ mum) to talk to us about the library service. The children really enjoyed it and learnt lots of new things. We thank Ms Roberto for coming in to talk with the children.

Today, we have been making our advent promises and we ended the day by lighting the first advent candle and saying some special advent prayers.

Reception have been learning about seasons and seasonal change and linked this to the months of the year.


Homework 29.11.17

Spellings for this week are intobackbyoff and this. Please can you ask your child to spot any verbs in their books as we have been looking at verbs this week during our grammar lessons.

Also there is a new maths video on Maths With Parents-

addition and subration by making 10 video and activities.

It would also be great to continue practising writing numbers 1 to 20 in words.

Many thanks

Advent services

As part of our preparation in Advent we will be holding simple Advent services in our classroom at the end of the day. We would love to have you join us at 3pm.
Mrs Clack has a sign up sheet in the office for our class. Our services will be held on :

Thursday 7th
Friday 8th
Monday 11th
Thursday 14th
Friday 15th
Monday 18th
There will be spaces for 5 parents at each slot.
Also we will be sending a prayer format home for you to write a simple prayer with your child. Please don’t panic as these should be really simple child led little prayers for us to share in our services. If you could write it down on the sheet provided and send it in as soon as you have done it that would be great.
Please don’t forget to pop into our exhibition on Monday in the hall.  Many thanks.
