Well done to everyone.



As a reward for the best attendance in the Foundation Stage, the Starfish class went to Bounce.  We all had great fun!IMG_2133IMG_2145IMG_2153IMG_2137IMG_2146

Mini beasts

This half term, the Reception classes have been exploring mini beasts.  We have taken great care of our pot of caterpillars and are looking forward to them turning into butterflies very soon.

Take a look at some of the fantastic, independent writing and work that the children are producing about mini beasts.

We are looking forward to seeing the lovely mini beast models you are making for the homework project.

Curriculum Day

As part of our Northumberland celebration week we have decided to theme this term’s curriculum day around ‘Northumberland’.’
We are planning to make flags and bunting to decorate the school and explore and create castles like the magnificent ones we have in Northumberland.
The curriculum day will be held on Thursday 25th May 2017 (the day before we break up for half term).
Seahorses and a.m. Pebbles – 10.00a.m.-11.30a.m.
Starfish and p.m. Pebbles – 1.45p.m.-3.15p.m.
We look forward to seeing you and joining in the celebration.

Summer Term

We have a very busy term ahead of us which includes the very first celebration of Northumberland Day.  Thank you to everyone who has uploaded their Northumberland photographs to Tapestry.  We have enjoyed the range of places you have visited and look forward to more being posted before the cut off date Monday 22nd May 2017.

Remember, at the end of Reception your child is assessed against Government standards and we appreciate your support in helping your child achieve their full potential.  You can do this by reading everyday, completing homework tasks, practising sounds learned in phonics and writing words and sentences regularly.  In Maths you can encourage your child to recognise numbers to 20 and beyond, talk practically about sharing, doubling and halving, count accurately and add and subtract.

Thank you for your support with this, it really makes a difference.
