Please bear with us as we get used to this whole new system of schooling. As you know school is open for children of key workers so we are busy supporting those children still in the building whilst setting and monitoring work for children working from home. We will endeavour to answer your emails and queries as quickly as possible however please remember we may not be contactable at certain times. If your enquiry is urgent feel free to call school during office hours on 01946 820402 and a message will be given to us. 


Thank you for your support at this time. We are here to support everyone and we will be making regular email and phone contact with you and your children. We would appreciate acknowledgement of any emails you receive. This is a new challenge for everyone but by working together I'm sure we will manage.

Challenges - There are loads of 30 day challenges around at the moment, e.g. 30 day Lego challenge, 30 day doodle challenge, 14 day photography challenge. Just google to find these and many more!

There is also a 30 day yoga challenge that is perfect for older children and adults on the Yoga with Adriene channel on YouTube. Younger children might prefer the Cosmic Kids yoga stories that are on YouTube.


Indoor games - why not ask your parents and older relatives to teach you parlour games like charades, twenty questions, the chocolate game, or winking murder? There are also so many games you can play with a pack of playing cards, e.g. whist, pontoon (21, or blackjack), gin rummy, go fish, clock patience and solitaire. See how many you can learn. You could have a party with your family with special food and drinks and lots of games to play.


Easter ideas - Easter is coming, so you could research stained glass windows, then design one that shows part of the Easter story. Or make a traditional Easter bonnet. Or boil some eggs and decorate them, then have a pace egg rolling contest in your garden. Or egg dumping - will your egg be the champion?





EASTER ACTIVITIES Have a look at these ideas and see if you would enjoy doing any of them. Remember to keep reading and playing all those online games you like such as TTRS, prodigy, Purple Mash and Spelling Shed

PARENTS - Look in Parent Information to see how you can help your child's well-being by encouraging them to use the 5 steps to Well-being everyday. Thanks for your help smiley

Homework reminder


Strive for 5 - read 5 times a week and get AN ADULT to listen to you and sign your homework book.

I believe our class can easily win the weekly Strive for 5 certificate! Come on we can do it!smiley


Times table practice - show me that you have practiced in your book on at least 4 different nights of the week and then you will be ready to show off your skills in class when we do our 3 minute Rockstar test everyday. 

USE TIMES ROCKSTARS, - the children who use it are definitely improving loads. I have genuinely heard children say, "I know my 9's because of Rockstars," and, "I am so much faster and it is all because of ROCKSTARS."


Spelling practice - show me that you have practiced your words in your book on at least 4 different nights of the week and then you will be able to spell your words easily on the test on Friday. Remember I love to see your pictures which include your spelling words wrote over and over again inside of them. USE SPELLING SHED - the children who are using it regularly are seeing a big improvement in their spelling.


Year 6 will have additional homework each week. You must do it not only to improve your skills but in order to get into a good routine for secondary school where no homework means detention!



Remember you will be rewarded for completing your homework AND striving for 5
