Dear Parents/Carers,

Next week is the last week of term.

We hope that you and your children have had a great term, and that you think they have learnt a lot and made good progress in a range of areas – across the curriculum as well as with regards to their personal growth and wellbeing.

The curriculum theme for spring term 1 is ‘Burps, Bottoms and Bile’, which will be ‘science-heavy’.  Of course, this means that emphasis will be placed on the whole process of eating and digesting food.  As usual, we will recommend that you provide appropriate reading and research opportunities for the children so that they are able to engage in this topic straightaway upon their return to school.

Times tables and spelling words should be practised at the weekends, children should be listened to as they read and their maths and Cornerstones homework ideas explored.  The quality of homework this term has been wonderful – creative, meaningful and supportive of the children’s learning; thank you.

Minster Christmas Service: Join us at the Minster on Wednesday, 19th December for a 2:00 pm start, where we’ll present a Christmas service with a difference.

PE: Could children please wear track-bottoms or leggings for outdoor PE since it is cold; trainers are also more suitable at this time because of the grip that they have/provide.  Plimsolls can be slippery.

Class parties: will be on Thursday, 20th December.  No nut-products are allowed, at all, though your child’s class teacher will give you ideas as to what food and drink to bring in.

Children celebrating birthdays next week and into the festive period include: Kevin, Sara and Rihanna in Grebes; Helen and Tyler in Penguins, and Benjamin, Lilac and Antoniel from Teals class.  We hope that you will have an enjoyable birthday.


There won’t be a homework letter next week, so you are reminded that school resumes on Tuesday, January 8, 2019.
