Weekly Update Friday 17th March

Dear Parents and Carers


We monitored maths across the school this week, and observed high quality teaching and task design supporting children’s understanding of maths. All the children spoke positively about the maths they were doing and were happy to share their learning. Looking through the books, there was clear evidence of the tasks being adapted to the needs of the learners, with evidence of support and extension too. Well done to all of our teachers who clearly enjoy  teaching maths and have excellent subject knowledge in this area.


Thank you to our staff who have dug over our vegetable beds ready for planting and cleared our potting shed. They look great and are all ready for our classes to plant now Spring is coming. 

Our Red Nose Day celebration this year was organised by our School Council members who voted for non uniform. The children had a great day showing off their style to their friends. Thank you to everyone who have contributed to our Red Nose Charity page. 

Our PTA have been really busy organising the quiz and our Easter Egg hunt in the last week of March. Remember our Easter Bonnet competition is on the last day of term too. 

If anybody has some time to cover our extra home phonic reading books in sticky back plastic, please come and let me know. We have a few packs left to do before we can give them out. 

Thank you for the frogspawn donations for the Year R classes. It is always an awe and wonder moment when they start to change and grow legs. The children love watching the changes over the weeks. 

This weekend is the last weekend of the rugby 6 Nations tournament. Congratulations to Ireland who look like they will be winning the tournament and happy St Patrick’s day too. Our children enjoyed finding out about Irish traditions and food in Assembly this week.  Better luck next time to our other home nations. 

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

Best wishes


Mrs Riches
