Nibbles has eaten through Jack and the beanstalk and he has bit the giant on his bottom! 

Now we have found out that Nibbles is going on holiday but what should he take with him.  This will provide us with a fantastic opportinity to practie our -s and -es suffixes on nouns.


In maths we will be exploring subtraction and challenging ourselves with missing box equations.  


Please spend 10 – 20 minutes reading each day. This can be a combination of Read Write Inc and bedtime story books. Please remember the importance of your child listening to YOU read during this time too. 

Read Write Inc 

Our RWI lessons start promptly at 9am.  If you are able to drop your child off as near to 8.45 as possible it would be very beneficial.

The children will continue to bring home a Read Write Inc book, a book bag book and a bedtime story each week. This provides them with a variety of familiar, new and challenging texts to read. Bedtime storybooks are to be enjoyed with an adult. Reading TO the children ensures that they experience the magic of a story coming to life and have a purpose and love of reading.

 Please check your child’s diary to find out which group they are in, which sounds they have learnt that week and which books they have in their book bag.  Each time they move to a new group they will receive a RWI book mark.  On this book mark are the ‘red’ words that are practised in that group.  These words inform our spelling quizzes and regular practise supports fluency and confidence in writing. 


On the class page I have uploaded three new files named Set 1, Set 2 and Set 3.  These contain the QR codes for all the sounds.  Each video is about ten minutes long and can be viewed by your child independently.  Please check your child's bookbag on a Friday to see which new sounds they have learnt that week and use the videos to support their learning.



The quiz for the spellings will be on WEDNESDAY 30th November.  The spellings are:

baby he paint be what



Our PE days are Wednesdays and Fridays. Please come to school wearing appropriate PE kit- White t-shirt, black/blue plain hoodie and tracksuit bottoms or shorts, hair tied back and earrings removed or covered. 


Children in KS1 receive free fruit.  Children do not have to bring a snack from home but if you wish to do so we ask that it is a healthy option and just one item, please. Please also rembember we are a NUT FREE SCHOOL. Please can you also make sure that your child only has water in their water bottle.  Juice, howver, is fine at lunchtimes if your child brings a packed lunch.



We love celebrating the children's birthdays and hearing about all the exciting things they are doing. We appreciate that it is not always possible to invite the whole class and we would ask therefore that in these instances that invites are given out before or after school.  Thank you.


Please don’t hesitate to contact us via a note in your child’s diary or through the office if you would like to discuss anything about your child.  admin@lostockgralam.cheshire.sch.uk     01606 668270
