Summer Newsletter 1 [Friday 16th April]

Dear Parents & Carers


Our new nursery classroom opened on Tuesday; it was wonderful to see so many happy faces grinning from ear to ear with excitement - that was just the staff! The nursery children thought it was pretty special too. They have so much more space both inside & out to explore with their friends. As ever, they have impressed us with how quickly they have settled into their new environment whether they are new starters or are ‘old-timers’. We are thrilled to be able to improve our Early Years provision further; not only do we have a stunning new nursery space, but our reception classes are able to access their outdoor classroom all of the time (this will enable even more learning opportunities to be put in place). I must take this opportunity to thank Mr Inskip for the incredible amount of effort (& skill) he has put in to ensuring the new nursery classroom was completed on schedule – the quality of finish on every aspect of this project is evident for all to see, we are so lucky to have him as our site manager


From Monday (19 April) we will slightly adjust nursery drop-off & pick-up times:

Nursery am: 9.00am – 11.30am

Nursery pm: 12.30pm – 3.00pm


I’d like to remind parents with children in reception to Y6 to complete the parents evening booking Google Form by midday Monday 19 April (the form will ‘expire’ after this time). Parents evenings for all nursery children will be held in June.


Here’s this week’s ‘nudges’ about your children’s learning in school:  



What do you like best about your new nursery classroom &/or outside space?

{‘Understanding the World’}


Reception [Red & Blue]

Look around the house/garden & identify different 2D shapes - which shapes can you find the most of? (Focus on square, rectangle, triangle, circle, pentagon & oval)



Y1&2 [Green, Yellow & Purple]

What’s the difference between evergreen & deciduous trees?

{Science topic: ‘Plants’}


Y3&4 [3A, 3/4M & 4G]

Can you name 2 architects (or more) & the buildings they designed?

{Art topic: ‘Architecture’}


Y5&6 [5D, 5/6P & 6R]

Explain the 3 ‘stages’ of the Atlantic slave trade.

{History topic: Abolition of Slavery}


This week, we have had a single class achieve 100% in their attendance this week – congratulations to 4G (Mr Grant). Our overall attendance for this week was much improved at 98.5% - maybe next week we can break the 99% barrier!


We had 7 classes who had no late marks this week: Red Class, Blue Class, 3A, 3/4M, 4G, 5/6P & 6R.  There were only 4 late marks across the whole school.


I hope you all have a great weekend & manage to get out & about to enjoy this lovely weather.


Take care

KD Williams

Why did the banana go to the doctors?

Because he wasn’t peeling very well.
