Welcome Back

Dear Parents and Carers


Welcome back to our Autumn Term. When we opened our doors on Monday, none of us could predict how the week would end. We held a special assembly for Year 1 and 2 children today in memory of Queen Elizabeth. I know some of our children were very sad coming into school today and lots of questions were asked. We will continue to guide and support our children through the coming few weeks.


Our Year 2 children finished their Road Safety practical lessons this week, and their certificates will be coming home soon. Thank you to Miss Apsey, our Year 2 Leader, and her team for the organisation and participation in this life skill. 

Year 1 are enjoying playing on the ‘big’ playground all the time and have had an exciting week catching up with their friends and choosing their classroom areas. Mrs Moth, our Year 1 Leader, has enjoyed getting to know the Year 1 children whilst welcoming Miss Beckley to the Year 1 team.

Our new Year R children have been getting used to school and making new friends. It was lovely getting to know some of  the new parents who stayed for a coffee on the first day back. Miss Turner, our Year R Leader, said everyone in her team are looking forward to all the children staying all day on Monday.

I hope you all have a restful weekend, and have my fingers crossed that the rain will stop for us to enjoy the last little bit of summer. 

Best wishes


Mrs Riches
