What are we doing this week?

Week beginning 18/03/19


On Friday 5th April, we will be having another Emotional Well-being day, this time centred around Performing Arts. As part of the day, we will be having a Talent Show – one each for Key Stage 1 and 2.

Children will have the opportunity, if they wish to take part, to showcase their talent to their year group in a ‘semi-final,’ before the 5th April, and the rest of the children will vote for their 2 favourite acts to go through to the final.

Class 1a will be having their ‘semi-final’ on Wednesday 27th March. I have had numerous discussions with children about what acts they might be performing and who they are doing it with. To avoid any problems on the day, please can you send me a note or email to let me know what your child is planning on doing and who with by Friday 22nd March.

Some parents have sent me music that their child will be using in the performance. You may want to do this, or just let me know the name of the song and I can get it up on Spotify or YouTube on the day.

The performance can be no longer than 3 minutes.

If you have any questions or queries feel free to contact me or catch me on the school playground.

This week in Year 1

English: We will be writing a diary piece about the Great Fire of London and also we will be looking at play Scripts.

Maths: Representing numbers within 50.

Topic: Great Fire of London


SHOW AND TELL - We will be having Show and Tell this week on Thursday for Whitlock.

To clarify how Show and Tell works - each group takes turns on a four weekly rotation, meaning that each child has the opportunity to share once every four weeks.  Please don't send in things for show and tell unless it is your child's week as we do not have the time to show things for more than one group and want each child to have the time they need so they feel their contribution is valued.  Please don't send toys in for show and tell.

A quick reminder: staff do not look inside childrens' reading folders every day. We ask children at the start of each day to take out any letters, toast money etc and give them to staff. Please encourage your child to develop this independance by letting them know before school if there is something that they need to give to a teacher.

Please ensure your child has a waterproof coat  every day as we will be going outside at playtimes unless the rain is too severe.

If your child has sore lips and wants to use a lip balm in school please send in unscented and unflavoured varieties.  Children can apply balm at the start of play and lunchtimes but otherwise they should remain in bags.

Please remember water bottles should only contain water. Please do not send in juice.
