Spring Term


Happy New Year!


I hope you are all having a wonderful break and managing to spend some quality time with families and friends.



Building Site

Exciting times are ahead as we hold our breath to see if some of the new build will be in place for after the Christmas holidays! Work has been running to schedule and our mud pit is ever closer to becoming an amazing new building… Thank you to all for your patience and support while this all takes place. Your children are a real credit to you as they have accepted all the new routines, systems and regulations put in place and are showing themselves to be rather resilient in the face of mud, welly sheds and fences all around!


Sending in Letters and Payments 

We can no longer accept payments from January over the office counter. Could we politely remind parents to post all cash/cheques and slips being sent in to school into the payment box. We are getting a larger slot box and this will still be located on the wall outside Mrs Rayner’s office and can only be accessed by office staff so any money posted is safe.  Please clearly label and seal money into envelopes, if you need envelopes these are provided by the side of the payment box, and if any change is due it will be sent home at the end of the day with your child.  Many thanks in advance for your cooperation as this does help the office be more time effective.

Autumn Term

What a wonderful first half term the children and I have had. I am looking forward to the next half term with the children and especially the run up to Christmas.


PE will now take place on a Monday and a Thursday so please ensure PE kits are in school on these days.


Our focus text for the next half term is Flat Stanley. The children will be using the contents of this book to support their English written work.


In mathematics, we will initially be moving on to multiplication and division.


As part of our wider curriculum, we will continue our study of Christianity. as you may know the children recently had Reverend Gary visit the school and answer some of your children's questions. the pupils then visited the church where Reverend Gary talked to the children about different areas of the church and their uses.


Year 4 Swimming All our Year 4 children from both classes will be starting swimming at Aston Sports Centre for 12 weeks every Wednesday afternoon from December. Letters will go out shortly to explain the process and to gather information about your child’s swimming ability.
All Hallow’s Church Services We have organised the dates to take our children up to the church for this school year and have changed the time to allow English and Maths to be taught in the morning sessions in school.
