Newsletter 26 - 26th March 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are coming to the end of our spring term next week. It has been a strange term but we hope that the routines that the return to school have brought have been beneficial for the children and your families.


We end term at 1.30pm next Thursday. The children are invited to wear Mufti (Times Table Rock Star theme if they would like to) for a donation of £2 towards PTA funds. The PTA are currently fundraising for the KS2 Adventure Playground to replace the current trim trail. School Council have been gathering ideas from their classes for what the playground will include.


When we return on Monday 19th April the children are welcome to wear their summer uniform. Let’s hope the weather gets the memo!


Parent Governor Vacancies

The Governors will be appointing two parent governors in the autumn term. If you are interested or would like to find out more, please contact the office.  More detailed information will be provided in the summer term.


Have a lovely weekend,


Mrs Griffith

Stars of the Week for w/ 26th March

Well done to all of our stars of the week!

Reception – Bertie for always being so cheerful about his learning and always having a smile on his face.  Igor for super progress this week with his reading. 

Year 1 – Mohammed for super focus and trying so hard with all of his learning.

Year 2 – William for his consistent hard work and excellent presentation in all of his work.

Class 3 – Fin for how hard he is working in class.  His sentences have been amazing and his maths too.

Class 4 – Oscar for his fantastic efforts since the beginning of the school year to improve his handwriting.  Well done Oscar - all your efforts have been worth it.  

Class 5C – Finn for some excellent writing over the last two weeks related to our new book ‘The Arrival’.

Class 5W – Lucas for settling in to school and for sharing his fantastic piano skills with the class.

Year 6 – Caleb for getting more involved in his learning by questioning his understanding and really applying himself, especially in Maths. 

House of the Week
The House with the most house points again this week is Air! Well done Air!


We do hope that school clubs will be able to start up again after the Easter holidays.  The plan is for clubs to run from w/c 26th April to w/c 12th July.  The club web page has been updated with the all the information and booking details we have so far and will continue to be updated over the next week.  All clubs will still have to be run for single bubbles, except for In2Sport who provide enough coaches to cover bubbles for years 1 - 6 and will run a separate Reception Class football club on a Tuesday after school.  Magpies clubs will be open for booking next week.   

Please note Choir letters were available to all Year 5 & 6 pupils yesterday.  A letter for Y5 & 6 Athletics is available below.

Little Musketeers

We hope our fencing club will be able to start again after Easter.  This will be for Years 5 and 6 for the moment as far as we know.  Please see a link to a video about the club here.

A Snapshot into a Week in Year 2

This week has been yet another action-packed week of learning! Here are some of our highlights: 


  • Hot chocolate in Forest School (where we happened to make an array!) 
  • Making our ‘layers of the ocean’ jars to help us remember the names of each layer 
  • Thinking about God’s creations and making some of our own amazing creations, making sure we are careful to look after and respect the world around us
