                                   ðŸŒŸðŸŒŸðŸŒŸðŸŒŸ PLAN B FOR MONDAY 19TH JULY🌟🌟🌟🌟


Hi All,
As the weather has been sweltering this weekend and it is set to continue. We have concerns over the trip to Heaton Park. We think it would be asking too much of the children to walk to and from the park in such hot sunny weather. Therefore, we have come up with an alternative plan that we hope will be just as enjoyable for the children.

The plan is to have a morning of games on the top play area and a picnic as planned outside. If you opted to bring pack lunch for trip please do so as we are continuing with lunch arrangements for picnic.

In the afternoon we propose an afternoon of water fun/play. We ask that children come to school in shorts and t-shirt (that you don't mind getting wet) with a change of clothes and a towel. If you have any water guns or toys that we can borrow they would be very much appreciated.

Children will have ice creams as planned in the afternoon.

Can we ask that children wear sun cream and have a sun hat.


Apologies for the short notice. Please prepare the children for a fun day!!!



Miss Gaff 😊







Class information:


P.E: This will be on a Thursday for both Reception and Year 1and on a Friday Year 1 have their additional lesson. Please ensure long hair is tied back and the children have their PE kits in school. We will send home PE kits at half term to be washed. 


Year 1 Spellings: Spellings will be sent home on a Wednesday for the children to practice. The children will be tested on these the following Wednesday. Please ensure their purple spelling folder is returned every Wednesday ready for the new spellings for the week. The children will have 10 words in total. 5 words will be from the words in the term section below and 5 words will be high frequency words for Year 1. 


Homework: The Year 1 children will have a black homework folder that will be sent home with work inside to complete. This will be sent home on Fridays and is expected to be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Please encourage your child to ensure this is completed. 

Reception homework will be placed in school bags on a Friday with more often than not a letter go with it or a message on Tapestry.


Reading: Please support your child and ensure they read at home every night (even just for 15 minutes) as this will support them greatly. The children will be reading every other day in school and have their books changed twice a week. The books will only be changed if they have read them at home so ensure you have signed their reading books.
