School Update 34 - 28th April 2020

If you haven’t already done so for this week,   I would like to ask you all to contact your child’s class teacher. 


This could be simply to:

  • confirm that ‘all is well’ at home and your child is happy with the tasks that they are doing;
  • to share some work with your child’s teacher; or
  • to ask for further support around a particular activity.


The teachers and I remain on-hand to support you through these times.  Please use the e-mails:



Food Boxes ordered for this week will be delivered to school on Tuesday 28th April 2020 and can be collected from 12.30pm until 3.45pm, today.


Don’t forget, you can access regular daily lessons in English and Maths, as well as other core subjects, in a new version of the BBC Bitesize website, as well as from the new Oak National Academy.  For those children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 you can also access free daily Phonics Lessons.  All links available on your child’s class page.


Please feel free to ‘pick n mix’ these online resources which will supplement the school’s Home Learning Guidance as well as the individual content available on the Class Pages.


Yesterday, the teachers will upload this week’s ‘weekly bite’ which will help parents to explore the topics in manageable ‘bite-size’ chunks.  This week the children can look forward to learning about:


  • Mrs Banfield-NEW:  Week 6 - Weekly bite: The Great Pet Sale





  • Mrs Webster-NEW:  Week 6 - Weekly bite: Natural Africa


  • Mr Caton-NEW:  Week 6 - Weekly bite: Natural Africa



  • Miss Lees-NEW: Week 6 - Weekly bite:  The Beautiful Game

Collective Worship – Time for Quiet Reflection

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Football Toilet Roll Challenge


To celebrate this week’s ‘weekly bite’ for Year 5 and 6: The Beautiful Game, some of the staff decided to take on the ‘Football Toilet Roll Challenge!’ CLICK HERE to view the video.  How many do you recognise?


If you would like to get involved and be in the video, then send your ‘own video’ over to your class teacher at their email address.  Remember to get your parents help and permission to record your video. Your class teacher will then post an updated video, next week with your videos added on!


All you have to do is catch a toilet roll from your left, show off some skills, then throw it to your right! We can't wait to see what you send!  Have fun.


Why not give them a go?  


I know that these are uncertain times for us all but we will continue to support our school community as best we can.    


Stay safe.
