One Childhood, One Chance

Friday 6th January

It has been lovely to welcome the children back to school after the holidays. We hope that you all had a wonderful few weeks!

Important Dates:

  • Monday 16th January – children to come in to school dressed in their Superhero costumes (please see Love to Learn task for more details).

  • Thursday 9th February – children will be tasting Chinese food. Please refer to the message sent out this week regarding paying for this. If you have any questions regarding this, please speak to your child’s class teacher. Many thanks!

Number Day

Number Day is back on Friday 3rd February. The children are invited to dress in number themed clothing, as a Times Table Rockstar or as a Maths Superhero for a voluntary donation for the NSPCC charity. The children will undertake a range of creative maths challenges throughout the day. In addition, parents are invited to join their child for a problem-solving activity, in their classroom, at 2:30pm until the end of the day. 


In Term 3, we spend a little longer in our RWI groups each day. We will be continuing to learn Set 1 sounds. Some groups will be focusing on learning special friends. This is where 2 letters make 1 sound (e.g. sh, th, ch, ng).


This week we have been learning to count fowards and backwards beyond 20 and looking at the patterns we can find in the number system.


This week and next we will be focusing on our Champion of Courage. For Reception, this is Nelson Mandela. This week we have been learning about what courage is and linking this to our school values. We have also learned who Nelson Mandela was and how he showed courage. Next week we will be creating some Nelson Mandela artwork and will be listening to the song ‘Free Nelson Mandela’.


A reminder that children should come in to school on a Friday in their PE kits.

Children should come in to school on a Wednesday in their school uniform, but with trainers.

Junk modelling

If you have any junk modelling (boxes, egg cartons, yoghurt pots etc) at home, please send them in to school so we can use them. Thank you!
