As you will be aware, from September 2020, our school is fully open! 


We have completed Risk Assessments for opening the school and are regularly updating them in accordance with the latest advice. These highlight action that we will be taking to help minimise the risk of spreading the virus.



Your children have settled in REALLY well so far. I've been so impressed with their smiling faces every morning, and the confidence with which they are taking part in everything.  They've especially taken full advantage of being based more outdoors and have loved playing with the bikes, cars, chalks and digging in the garden. (They also really enjoyed sweeping the puddles down the drains :)


If you would like to see an over view of the phonics and maths focus for each week this half term - please see the PDF document entitled "Phonics and Number Autumn 1st half 2020" above.



Two websites for books that come highly recommended are: (a huge online library) here can be browsed by age range)



If you are looking for more physical activity for your child, I would recommend:

for some simple PE challenges, focussed on personal bests. They include things like "how many times can you pass a ball around your tummy without dropping it in 60 seconds?" Some require equipment e.g. a beanbag and a hoop, if you don't have these at home, you could always improvise with a balled up sock and a skipping rope/belt laid out in a circle/ draw a circle in chalk.



The section at the very bottom of this page is full of stories and songs that the children might enjoy, some of which they will recognise from school (so far we've enjoyed the jolly phonics songs and the big number song together as a class.)


If any of the links on this page do not work - please let us know in school, there is an occasional technical hitch, which we would be eager to solve if it ever crops up. 
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your teacher know!
