Friday 4th March

Top Table: Kenzie and Charlotte     Praise: Arija

Welcome back! We hope you had an enjoyable half-term break and hope you are looking forward to the remaining weeks of the Spring term. This week, we have enjoyed a couple of RE days, focussing on Judaism, to complete our sequence of learning. The children have developed a good understanding of all areas of this religion. We also had a lot of fun on World Book Day, where we completed different, fun activities and it was a delight to see children dressed to celebrate the day! Thank you also to all parents that attended the Delamere talk, I hope it has reassured and prepared you and your child/children for the trip. 


Week beginning 28th February 2022:

We will continue to complete our spelling tests on a Thursday and our times tables test will take place on a Friday.   


Please note that our PE day this week are on Monday. Please come to school in your PE uniform as usual on this day. 

This week

Parents evenings will be taking place 8th/9th March, you can book an appointment through school spider. This will be an update on your child's progress since our last conversation. 



Read Write Inc

You will have noticed this week that your child may have changed RWI groups or come off the scheme to move on to Pathways to Read. If you have any concerns about how your child is progressing with their reading, please come and speak with me so that I can share more personalised strategies. 


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. 


For the next two weeks we are going to focus on spelling contractions. It is crucial that the children learn to join the letters accurately and where an apostrophe is the letters either side of it cannot be joined.

This week’s spellings to be quizzed on Thursday 10th March are listed in your blue reading diary.


Times Tables 



Please complete your times tables work sheet for this week. Some children have now moved on to learning their 5 x tables! Well done! If you would like your child to progress quicker, please access times tables rockstars to support their times tables knowledge.
