Thank you all for sending your children to school today dressed in the colours of the French Flag. We have all had a great day, it began with a French Breakfast followed by listening to The Hungry Caterpillar in French, learning to say colours in French and even a game of French Boules.


Thank you for all the contributions that have already been sent into school this week for our Harvest Festival. All the donations will be given to the local Foodbank to help those in need.


On Friday we will be walking up to St. John’s Church to see the ‘Creation display’ and to take part in a service of Thanks with Rev. Hazel.


Due to our French day today, the Reading books will be sent home on Thursday this week, but will need to be returned on Monday as usual.

Thank you for all the contributions of fruit for our fruit salad last week. The children all had a great time talking about, labeling, cutting and tasting the many different fruits. (Photo's to follow).


This week due to the four day week, the reading books will be going home on either Thursday or Friday. Can books still be returned on Monday.


Next week we will be having our Modern Foreign Language day. The whole school will be looking at France and the French Language. We will begin our day with a French breakfast for the children to taste and we will be reading French books and counting in French throughout the day. Children will need to come to school in Red, White and Blue clothing. Children will not need to come to school in their PE kit this week.


Harvest Festival will be on Friday, all children will walk up to St John's Church for our Harvest Celebration.  This event is only for children but photos will be posted later on our website. We  are asking for donations of non-perishable food that will be donated to the local food bank.


Advance Notice


You will soon be receiving a letter about our school trip for the Autumn Term. We will be visiting Sundown Adventure Land next half term before Christmas. The cost of this trip will be less than £20, but the exact cost will be confirmed on the letter coming home soon.

Please remember to send in a piece of fruit for our Fruit Salad tomorrow. Every child will have an opportunity to chop up some fruit to add to a whole class fruit salad.


This week we will be having our first spelling test. Can you please leave the Spelling section in their home school diary clear so that there is room for the children to do their 'test'. 


We were really impressed with how many children returned their reading books on Monday. Please remember that 'Reading Books' come home on a Wednesday and need to be returned on a Monday. These books are for your child to show off how well they have read at school.

Library books come home on Friday and need to be returned the following Friday. These books are to be shared together at home, your child does not need to read this to you, it might be a nice bedtime story.

Wednesday 9th September


All children have had a great first full week in school. Please find below a few messages and reminders:




All children need to bring a snack in each day. We no longer have biscuits like they did in Reception. All snacks should be healthy (no crisps or chocolate) and they should also be safe to eat outdoors (all children are asked to sit down on the wall to have their snacks but some start eating as they are walk onto the yard). Pots with spoons, items on sticks and whole grapes are best avoided.  A simple piece of fruit or biscuit is great.


Fruit Salad 


As part of our ‘Growing Up’ topic the children will be learning about healthy foods/meals.  Next week, the children will be creating a fruit salad. We ask that each child bring in a piece of fruit on Thursday for them to chop and prep for the fruit salad.  No NUTS. (We are aware that there are some food allergy concerns within the year group and food will be prepared separately for those children).


PE Kit


All children need to come to school in their PE Kit on a Wednesday. The school PE Kit should be a black hoodie or jacket, a white T shirt and black shorts or jogging bottoms (no logos please).

Welcome to Year One


We are excited to meet you all and getting to know our new classes. Each Wednesday afternoon we will be updating this section of our website with weekly news, messages and upcoming events.
