Our children are central to all that we do.

Easter holiday

Dear Parents,


It was lovely to meet so many of you at parents evening this week. I have really enjoyed teaching he children this term. They have worked extremely hard and it’s fantastic to see them all growing in confidence and their learning accelerating.  I have sent some work home for the children if they want to do it. It is not compulsory and they do not need to bring it in to be marked. It’s purely if they want to do it.


What would be beneficial to them is if they practice their real and alien words for the Phonics screening in June. Again we will be doing lots of work on this next term. For those that would like to do this,  we sometimes use Mr Thorne’s videos in our phonics lessons.  Here is the link to his YouTube page.


I would also encourage using the 1minute White Rose Maths App I spoke to you about at parents evening. This will help imbed the learning we have done this terms in relation to number bonds, number families, addition and subtraction.  Here is the link.


I have attached the home learning grid for next term which I hope you find useful. Our topic will be Carnival of the Animals. I will upload it onto the website today.

Spellings will go back to Fridays from next term. I think this works better for the children and I want them to succeed as much as possible. Their next spelling test will be the Friday we return – NOT Monday.


Thank you so much for your support this term. The children have been a delight to teach and I am extremely proud of each and every one of them.

Have a fantastic Easter.


Best wishes,

Mrs Cookson
