If you could not attend the meeting for the Delamere trip, I will be sending an email with the documents attached. If you would prefer a paper copy, please come and see me at the door in the morning. Thank you for all the parents who attended parents evening or were able to discuss their child's progress with me on the phone. It was lovely to share your child's work with you and discuss their strengths. 


Week beginning 14th March 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

This week, we are celebrating British Science Week where there are going to be plenty of opportunities for the children to participate in celebrating Science. Currently, we have welcomed some caterpillars into our classroom to study and experience the life cycle process of a butterfly. 

You will notice on Twitter that we are beginning our new whole-school project called 'Global Neighbours'. This is very exciting and gives the children to explore ways to help to prevent climate change. 



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 17th 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. 


Please also use Hit the Button and choose the 5 x table facts to help prepare for our 5 x tables test which lots of children are now working on.  https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
