21st June 2024

Dear Parents / Carers,


What a lovely way to end our week with sports day in the sunshine.  We are so proud of all the children for taking part and trying their best.  Running and being competitive can be tricky for some children, and is out of their comfort zone, but they pushed themselves, and with the love and support of you all around them, saw new achievements being made.  


In English, we are continuing our work around the book 'The Last Wolf'.  We have been spotting adjectives, conjunctions and alliteration, and wrote sentences containing these.


In maths, Reception children have been taking away using the language first, then now.  For example, first I had 7 apples in the basket, then I ate 3, now I have 4 apples.  They have even been practising writing their take away number sentences focussing hard on number formation.  eg 7-3=4

Year 1's have continued their work on fractions finding 1/2 and 1/4 of different amounts.


In science we looked at wood and cardboard and tested it's strength by making seaside benches and finding out how many bears could sit on them.



In History we became Historians!! We looked at photographs taken of seaside holidays in the past, and learnt that these are known as 'primary sources'. They are important to Historians as they tell us about the time from the perspective of those actually living through it. We looked carefully at the photographs and answered three sentence starters 'I see, I think, I wonder'.


Friday morning we had our whole school and class photographs taken, we hope we are all smiling!



What is happening week beginning 24.6.24 –  -

Please note, it is Miss Marriott's (our student teacher) last week with us, we sadly say goodbye to her on Friday.  She has become a wonderful part of our Class 1 team and valued staff member during her time with us.  She has successfully been appointed as a Class 3 teacher, and will be visiting her new school from the 1st July.  We know the children are certainly going to miss her, and we wish her lots of luck as she starts her teaching career.

Reading books will be sent home along with any flashcards of new sounds or words taught during the phonics sessions this week. Please ensure your child has their reading folder in their bag.


Couple of reminders:

  • Please ensure your child’s hair is tied back daily for school.
  • Please continue to send a coat with your child to school.
  • For warmer days, please apply suncream to your child before they come to school, and ensure they have a sun hat.
  • Payment for our Skengess trip has now closed via squid.  If you have not paid via our system, or spoken to us about it, it is taken that you have changed your mind and your child will not be coming on the trip.  We will be communicating the plan to you in regards for your child to be in another class on that day.


Have you downloaded our school app?  This is a great way that as a school we can send a quick message to you, and you can keep up to date with all that is going on a school.



This half term we are designing and making sea side snacks, we enjoyed making sandwiches this week.  We are kindly asking for a voluntary payment of £5 per child to help towards the cost of food needed for these sessions.  Thank you. 


Thank you as always for your continued support.  If you have any questions, please do come and speak to us.

Kind regards, Mrs Richardson, Mrs Petchell, Mrs Nicholson and Miss Marriott
