Friday 9th October

Please could you go on an autumn walk with your child this weekend (weather permitting!) 

Talk to them about the changes in the season and it would be super if you could collect some things for our nature tray e.g. acorns, pine cones, leaves, conkers etc.

We will use their finds as part of our science and maths lessons in school.

Thank you!


We will also be going on a walk to a local woods next week so just a reminder about having wellies in school and a waterproof coat!

Over the weekend, please make use of our online reading programme 'Rising Stars'. Your child will be assigned one book over the weekend, along with a comprehension quiz. You can access 'Rising Stars' at

Please note that I have allocated the next 3 books to take you up to the half term break!

                                            Happy Reading!!
