This Week

Good morning

  • There will be no spelling words or maths homework again this year. 


  • I am collecting in the childrens reading books and reading records. They will not bring these home after Friday. If you have any library books at home please send these in with your child.


  • Next week I will write a blog post with recommendations for websites which will help your child over the summer. I am unfortunately unable to send home the childrens maths tests. They are kept in school and passed on to the next teacher.

Next Week

  • There is no school on Monday or Friday.
  • On Tuesday the children can wear their house colours. They can also wear something red as we are celebrating red nose day. Please remember to send in their sponsor money. The details of this are on the letter which was sent home last week.
  • The children will bring home all of their exercise books. Dictionaries and reading records stay in school and are passed up to the next teacher.
  • On Thursday the children can wear their own clothes. They can also bring in games. They only need a small bag. 

Thank you!
