Talk homework

This week we have been learning about sustainability and looking after our environment. Talk to your grown ups about the different ways that we can help look after our community – think about how we can make it look nice, and what we can do to protect our local wildlife.


Thank you to everyone who has been logging their reading on our new Boom Reader app! Please ensure that you are reading EVERY DAY with your child and logging it on the Boom Reader app.

Please make sure that you send your child into school with their reading folder every day as we will be reading with your children in school at least once a week.


The children will be tested on their High Frequency words on Monday. Please ensure your child has practised their dictation sentence(s) too.

My friend’s house is by the school.

The king wanted a night by the window.

Floppy the dog jumped in the river to get something.

In Maths this week we have been estimating where numbers up to 50 would be placed on a blank number line. The children enjoyed using what they knew to help them think about whether numbers should be placed in particular places and got more and more confident as we had more practise.

In Art this week the children have completed their own portraits of an adult in school who inspires them. The children have worked really hard to try and get the facial features in proportion and in the correct place. We are very excited to send them off to the Sky Arts Competition next week – if you haven’t handed in your permission slip yet, then please send it into the school office so that we can enter your child’s work.

We are very excited to introduce Mr Payne to the Year 1 Team – Mr Payne is training to be a Teacher and will be spending lots of time in Willow Class teaching the children and supporting their learning. Please say hello if you get the chance!

Next Wednesday morning we are very excited to be going on our trip to Buckden Towers! We have enough adults to support Willow Class as Mr Payne has joined us for the next 8 weeks, however we still need 2 adult volunteers to join Bramble Class – if you are free between 9-12pm on Wednesday morning please send us an email or speak with Miss Murkett to let her know if you would like to come and help. Thank you so much for your support.

Please make sure that your child’s costume has been brought into school by Monday 20th March at the latest in a named carrier bag. Thank you!

If you have any more shoeboxes, please could you bring them in as we will be using them in the final week of term to make our very own ‘Dream Space’ in a sustainable way!

Best wishes and have a lovely weekend.
