Headteacher’s Comments

Thank you to all the children and parents who attended the school’s Open Evening on Tuesday.  It was so nice to see so many parents take an interest in their child’s learning.  I hope you all took an opportunity to look at your child’s work and introduce yourself to your child’s new teacher.  All the children have spent the day with their new teacher today.  They all seemed very excited.


Well done to Hermione Scott, Reece Vallance, Eden McCartney who received Green Cards this week.



Well done to Mrs Sach’s class who had the best attendance this week with 98.2%.

Sports’ Day (Friday 4 July- 9am)

Providing the weather is fine, Sports’ Day will be held on Friday 4 July.   If not, then it will be held on Tuesday 15 July.  It will start at 9am.  Parents and Grandparents are more than welcome to come and watch Sports’ Day.


The PTA committee will be running a stall on the day selling Bacon and Sausage Rolls/ Teas/ Coffees/ Soft Drinks and Ice Poles.  Children will be able to purchase drinks at break time (11:00 to 11:20am).

Sport’s Day Teams

Your child has been informed of the team they will be in for Sports’ Day.  This is recorded in their White Pupil Progress Books.  If possible your child should wear a plain coloured t-shirt for that day.  If this is not possible, then your child should wear their normal school PE kit.

Football Maths Challenge


FIFA have announced changes to the football kits to be worn in Brazil for the 2014 World Cup.

All teams must select their kit from the following options:

Shirt – red, yellow, orange or green.

Shorts – black, white or blue.

Socks – red or green.

Boots – must be black.


All items have to be made of a single colour.  There is to be no patterns, logos or sponsors.

How many different combinations could the teams choose from?

Use the kit outline (available on the maths challenge board) to help you create all the possible kit combinations.



Excluding qualifying and warm up games, how many games would England have to play in order to reach the final?



Using the team lists, announced by FIFA, can you find the three most common first names of players in the 2014 World Cup?

Meet the Teacher Evening (Thursday 4 September 7pm)

Advance notice that our ‘Meet the Teacher’ evening, where you have a chance to hear what your child will be learning next year, is on Thursday 4 September starting at 7.00pm.  This meeting is unsuitable for children.

First Day Back (Wednesday 3 September 2014)

This is a reminder that the first day back is Wednesday 3 September.  The children should be ready to line up in the playground at 8:45am.
