Dear Parents and Carers,
What a busy week! Red Nose Day has been a wonderful way to end the week and bring a smile to everyone’s faces.
Many of you will have met with your child’s class teacher virtually this week for your Parents Evening Consultation meetings. We do hope that you have found the focus on the pupils’ wellbeing to be helpful and a useful time to share information with their class teacher.
When you come to collect your children and are waiting in the playground, please make sure any younger siblings stay with you at all times rather than run around the playground or play on the field. Many thanks for your help with this!
Are any of you green-fingered? Would you be able to spare an hour or two one Saturday to help tidy up our Spiritual Garden? If so, please let Mrs Lawson know in the office as we’d really appreciate some help. Thank you in advance!
Enjoy the weekend.

Change to School Email Address
From 30th March the current school email address will no longer be in use. The new email address which can be used from now on is firstname.lastname@example.org
Home CV test kits are now available for collection for anyone living with school age children. Please see here for information about where you can collect your test kits locally.
It is our hope to return to a full complement of clubs after Easter. Next week we will touch base with all of our club providers with a view to having our website up to date by the end of the week.
We are once again receiving complaints about illegal and inconsiderate parking. It is particularly dangerous to park on the chevrons in front of school, even if you are just dropping children off. Please consider walking if you can or parking that little bit further away from school.
Bags 2 School
Bags 2 School will be collecting from us on Tuesday 30th March. This is a great earner for the PTA and useful if you're having a clear out or perhaps if you've been waiting for the charity shops to open you could divert some of your items to us? Special bags won't be distributed this time, but any bags/black bags will do. Please note the bags are checked before leaving and any unsuitable items are left with us to dispose of. Many thanks!
Bags 2 School accept the following ‘good quality’ items for RE-USE*:
Bags 2 School DO NOT accept:
Times Tables Rock Stars Challenge
From the 29th March until the 1st April will be Times Tables Rock Stars Challenge week! All classes will be battling it out to see who can earn the most coins. To take part, each child will need to practise as much as they can in Garage or Gig mode as this is where children practise times tables which are appropriate for their age. The winning class will be able to celebrate their victory with a mufti day on the first Friday after the Easter break. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s class teacher or Miss Cullen.
Year 1 Red Nose Day Maths Challenges
This morning Year 1 have been enjoying Red Nose day maths challenges – how many different shaped noses can we make and can we vary the size? We’ve also used our red noses to get some Sports Day practise in!!
Year 2 Science
This week in science, Year 2 have enjoyed learning about the life cycle of the sea turtle. They were fascinated to learn that the temperature of the nest controls the gender that hatches from the eggs. Their play doh life creations were very impressive as was their team work. Well done Year 2!
Year 4 Ravenous Readers
Here are this week's Ravenous Readers including Isis who has completed all the books on the second reading list. Well done Isis! Her favourite book was 'Run Wild'.
A big thank you to James’s Mum who has donated the books he has read from the reading lists. The Class 4 Reading List Library will be open for business on Monday!
Year 4 - Electricity
Year 4 made their own switches, using card, paper fasteners and paperclips, to insert into electrical circuits. They have really enjoyed learning about electricity whether remotely or in school.
