Years 1 & 2 Weekly Newsletters

Dear Parents/Carers                                                               20th April 2018


Welcome back everyone?  We would also like to welcome the teaching students back, Sophie Williams in Mrs Huggins’ class and Gemma Helliwell in Mr Quilter’s class.


In class this week, we have been looking at addition and subtraction using a number line and at money.  In literacy, we have a new book “The Disgusting Sandwich” which we will be working with over the next few weeks.  We have been learning about the patron saint of England, St George, in the run up to St George’s day on Monday.


Forest School and PE sessions – next week

Mr Quilter’s class – forest school will be on Wednesday.

Miss Cawthorne’s class – forest school will be on Thursday.


Our PE sessions will now be on Monday and Tuesday.


Wed, 25th April – FoOV – St George’s day celebration - Non Uniform

(red, white, princess or dragons)

Children can come to school in non-uniform for the day and can bring in a 50p donation towards FoOV, if you wish.  As it is St George’s day on Monday we thought it would be good to celebrate it by wearing red/white or dress as a prince, princess or dragon. 


As the Year 2 children will be attending the tennis festival they should come to school in their PE kit and can bring in some clothes to change into for the afternoon.


Year 2 – Tennis Festival – Wednesday, 25th April

Thank you all for returning your permission for this sporting event, which is part of our PE curriculum.  We are sure the children will enjoy the morning.


Lunch menu for next week is ‘Week Two”.
