School Update 39 - 56th May 2020

Food Boxes ordered for this week will be delivered to school today and can be collected from 12.30pm until 4.30pm.


Yesterday, the teachers uploaded 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 a whole-school themed week, learning about: VE Day.  Please visit the Class Pages for more detail.


If you haven’t already done so, please contact your child’s class teacher this week. 


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:



While working at home, this week, we would like to ask our parents to support their children to ensure that your child/ren(s) handwriting is neat and legible.


Children should begin joining their handwriting towards the end of Year 2.  All children in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6, when producing written work, at home, should use a joined handwriting style. 


Their writing should be evenly sized with clear ascenders (h, k, l) as well as descenders (j, g, p, q).  When working at home, please remind your children about their handwriting and encourage them to do their very best.


As you may know, on a Friday we have started to award Home Learning: Star of the Week Certificates for children/families who have shared good quality work with their class teachers, across the week.  This week, we will also begin awarding certificates for Home Learning: Times Table Rockstars to celebrate the hard work and achievements of our children using the Times Table Rockstars App!


All you need to do is keep practising your multiplication recall, on the app-improving your mental proficiency and we will award, just as we do in school, certificates for accuracy, speed or correct answers. Rock on! 


All certificates are awarded on a Friday, through the School Update Letter.  Good luck everyone.


Just in case you missed this yesterday:


Over the last week, the entire school staff have been creating a video message for our school community with the simple message, ‘We miss you and keep going.’ 


We’ve used our school song, ‘Just Be You’ which was recorded in the Autumn term and features all our school children, with images from the school staff.  We hope you enjoy watching our message to you-we miss you all.  Please CLICK HERE to view.

Real PE


Schools and families tell us they are enjoying using real PE at home because it’s easy to use and is supported by an activity timetable to offer guidance and ideas on what physical activity and PE could look like each day.


It’s a simple way to signpost and embed physical activity, health and wellbeing into your pupils’ sample weekly timetables and learning grids.  It also makes staying active and healthy more fun during this challenging time.  


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.
