Autumn 2, Week 6

Hello from Class One!

Firstly, a huge well done to all the children, for their fantastic nativity; Shine Star Shine! I hope you all enjoyed watching our Christmas story. The children have been working so hard and made us all very proud as they performed their hearts out for us all. A big thank you to all parents and grown-ups who came to watch; DVDs will be with you very soon! Your children have come such a long way in the one term they have been with us and we were delighted with their efforts.  Make sure you have a look on the school gallery page too, to see the photos from our dress rehearsal!

As well as rehearsing for the show, we have been working with magnets during science this week and experimenting with objects that are magnetic. We had some wonderful explanations and experiments and the children had great fun testing out different objects.  Christmas cards are in full swing and the children have been using their super learning powers to make them and write their messages. The children were encouraged to make their designs personal and it is lovely to see what they have all come up with.

A few small reminders…

Please sign up to an allocated food for our Christmas party using the list on the school gate (outside Class One).  Thank you to all those who have done so already!

Next week will be the last week for library book changes and taking home reading books from class.  After that, all books will be collected in for our usual end of term audit.  Those of you who have school books at home floating around, if you could return them before the end of term, we would be extremely grateful!

PE bags will also come home next week.  Any lost property left over in class will be passed down to the main box in the front office so please check here for any lost items.

Thank you and enjoy your weekend,

All in Class One.

Personal Support Plans

It was lovely to see so many of you at Parents consultations recently.  If anyone would still like a catch up with me but was unable to make the parent consultations, then please feel free to email me on : This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  If your child has a Personal Support Plan which details any additional support that they receive to help them with thier learning, then you will have been given two copies at your parents consultation appointment.  Please can you sign and return one copy to your Class teacher or to me as soon as possible.  We really value your comments and feedback so don't forget to complete the Parents comments section, and the Pupil comments section with your child.


If you would like any suggestions for games, apps/ websites or activities that you can try at home to support your child with any of the objectives on their PSP then please get in touch with me.  Frequent repetition of key concepts and ideas is really valuable, so anything you can do at home to complement the learning at school will be really helpful. 

Many thanks

Mrs Nichols

Autumn 2, Week 5

Hello from Class One, we've had another jam packed week full of learning, adventures and fun!

The children have been doing so well learning their nativity lines and songs this week! We are now in full swing gearing up for the big event. The children are making us so proud with their acting skills. 

If we could ask for you to continue learning lines and songs that would be great. Also please check book bags as some children may need to bring in a plain t-shirt/ tights for the dress rehearsals next week.  If this is the case, your child will have a named letter in their book-bags.

We've had lots of arts and crafts going on this week and have incorporated maths.

The children have made paper chains and were put into groups. The competition was on to see which team could make the longest paper chain!  We have also been making our Christmas hoops so make sure you have a look in the school hall, to spot some of our work. 


Wishing you another wonderful weekend and a great time at the Christmas fair tonight!  Enjoy your weekends and we hope that all of the children have one last try at saying their nativity lines in a big, clear voice!

From the PTA!

We can't believe we are here already, Christmas Fair week!  Only a day to go until the big event of the season.  Father Christmas has informed me he is very excited to see all the children again this year and has had his suit dry clean especially.
There is lots of fun to be had at this years Christmas Fair, make sure to visit as many stalls as you can, enjoy the singing from the choir and have yourself a mince pie from the refreshment stand in the school hall.  This year, to leave you hands free whilst browsing the games and stalls, we have introduced a cloak room!  This can be found at the end of the corridor to the library.
Next week will see the first of our PTA Social Evenings.  We have had a great response with lots of parents wanting to get together for dinner and a drink.  You still have time to sign up, just return your yellow slip to reception by Friday.  
We are very grateful for all the donations and time that parents give to the PTA for these events, we really could not do it without your kind generosity.  If anyone else is able to spare an hour or so at the fair to man a stall, please do let us know.
If you have any questions about anything PTA related, you can send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or flag me down at the school gate!
We hope you enjoy the Christmas Fair,
