Welcome back!

Posted on Wednesday 06 September 2023 by Mrs Taylor

The children have settled really well in their first couple of days in Year 2 with lots of new routines to learn and an earlier start time of 8:45am.

We look forward to meeting you over the next few weeks but for now, here is some key information about Year 2.

Mrs Taylor – Monday and Tuesday

Mrs Lake – Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

Mrs Maqbool also assists in the class.

Important days and dates

PE – Tuesday and Thursday

Spelling test – Friday

Library – Friday

Class assembly – Wednesday 18th October at 2:40pm

Water bottles

These should be brought to school daily and they will be brought home every day for refreshing and cleaning.


Please contact the office if your child would like to have milk in Year 2.


Whole school homework is set every Friday (along with new spellings). Homework and spellings can also be accessed from the website.


Your child will be bringing home a letter explaining about their reading. Daily reading, whether this is their e-book, a book from home or the library, is key to making progress in reading and to develop fluency.


We continue to use Numbots in Year 2 (using the same login as Year 1) and certificates will be awarded every Tuesday for children who complete the different stages and make the most improvement over the week.

For spelling practice, reading and Numbots, little and often (10/15 minutes a day) is recommended.


Please do check the uniform policy to ensure your child is wearing the correct items including for PE days. Earrings must be removed on PE days.

Acceptable Use agreement

The children have brought home the acceptable use agreement for their use of the internet at school. We have talked through this together but please read it with your child and sign and return to class.

Finally, please do ask if there are any queries and keep checking back on class news to find out more about your child’s learning!

Welcome back!

Year 3 PE and Swimming

Posted on Tuesday 05 September 2023 by Miss Birch


Year 3 are swimming on Wednesdays this year. This will begin in the second week back on the 13th of September.

For swimming, your child will need to come to school in their PE kit and with these things ready in a bag:

  • a swimming outfit
  • a towel
  • a healthy snack for afterwards e.g. fruit or vegetables
  • goggles if needed!

Our other day for PE will be Thursdays. Please could your child come to school wearing their PE kit on this day too! If you’re not sure on the PE kit, please let me know and I can give you the school’s uniform policy.

Thank you!

Miss Birch

Looking forward to a new year!

Posted on Tuesday 05 September 2023 by Miss Birch

Hello Year 3!

As you know, I’m Miss Birch and I’m going to be your teacher for the next year! I’m really looking forward to working with all of you. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful summer holiday and are raring to come back. I just know that we’re going to be a fabulous team – bring it on!

We’re looking to you seeing you all soon. We’ve been super busy getting the classroom ready for when you arrive.
Here’s a sneak peak of some of the areas…
Every morning, we’ll encourage your child to be independent when doing their daily jobs. The jobs include: hanging up their coat, finding their name, choosing their lunch, and voting for the end of the day story.

  • PE will be every Friday. Your child should come to school in their PE kit. Our first PE session will be on Friday 22 September. Click here if you’re unsure about any items of clothing or footwear.
  • Your child will need a labelled water bottle each day. Please ensure the bottle only contains water – no juice, please!
  • The school day is 8.45 am – 3.15 pm.
  • Please make sure all items of clothing are NAMED.

If you have any questions, please ask at the end of the day.

See you all soon!

Goodbye Reception!

Posted on Wednesday 26 July 2023 by Mrs Wood

I can’t believe your Reception year has come to an end.  We’ve had a magical journey full of joy and laughter.

For my last post, I thought it would be nice to look back on your fantastic year. Click here to reflect and watch some of your amazing highlights.
Parents/carers, you might want to grab a tissue!

Finally, keep reading and have a happy and healthy summer! I look forward to giving you a wave in your new Year 1 classroom.

Sorry this post is delayed!



A fun-filled last week!

Posted on Friday 21 July 2023 by Alice Needham

It has been a jam packed week in Year 3!

A highlight was definitely our school trip to Magna. The children loved exploring the four different pavilions: air, wind, fire and earth. A class favourite was definitely seeing the fire tornado!

We finished our go-karts and tested them in the hall. They all moved freely which met our design criteria.

Today, we propagated our much loved Swiss Cheese plant. We have placed our cutting in some water and hope that some roots have grown by the time we come back in September!

On behalf of Mrs Burgess, Mrs Maqbool and myself, thank you for a great year. Thank you all very much for our lovely gifts – we feel spoilt!

Have a great summer and see you in September!

Have a happy and healthy summer

Posted on Friday 21 July 2023 by Mrs Taylor

Mrs Taylor, Mrs Lake and Mrs Roth would like to thank you for all our kind and generous gifts and cards.

We have had a great year with the children and it has been a pleasure to teach them and see how much they have progressed and matured over the year. We shall miss them!

We hope you all have a happy and healthy summer holiday.

Fun and games!

Posted on Friday 21 July 2023 by Mrs Lake

In Year 1 and Year 2, we’re enjoying our last day of the term with board games, construction toys and colouring. The children have had a wonderful morning playing, smiling and working together.
Have a happy and healthy summer holiday!

A SMASHING masterpiece!

Posted on Friday 21 July 2023 by Miss Goswami

Yesterday, the children finished off their Eggy’s cars. They added safety features like seat belts, crumple zones and a roll cage. Take a look at their fabulous work!

To complete our DT project, the children then had to test their cars against the design brief. We completed three tests:

  • if it was moveable (roll test);
  • if it would protect Eggy when the vehicle crashed (crash test);
  • and if it was driveable day and night (headlight test).

For the crash test, the children pushed their cars down a ramp into a wall to see if Eggy would still be in intact. Take a look at our SMASHING experiment!
