Hello and welcome back!

A very warm welcome to you all and an extra special welcome to all the new children and their families joining us this year.
I hope you all had a very enjoyable holiday. I don’t know about you but I am still hopeful summer will finally arrive!

Curriculum Letters

Over the next week you will receive a letter from the class teacher outlining the areas of the curriculum your child will be working on this term. You will receive a curriculum letter at the beginning of each term.

Meet the Teacher

There is an opportunity next week for you to meet your child’s teacher and to have a chat about the coming year. You will have the chance to ask questions and find out more about the class routines and expectations. The dates and times are as follows:

Reception: Wednesday 26th September at 2.30.

Year 1 and Year 2: Monday 10th September at 9.10.

Year 3 and Year 4: Thursday 13th September at 9.10.

Year 5 and Year 6:Tuesday 11th September at 9.10.

The meeting will take place in your child’s classroom. Please wait outside the classroom until the teacher has taken the class to assembly. The above information can also be found on the attached ‘Dates for your Diary’ sheet.

Diary Dates

You should hopefully find attached a ‘Dates for Your Diary’ sheet which outlines the main events etc for the year. Please remember the dates are subject to change and you will receive further information regarding the events nearer the time. Please read the Friday News to keep up to date with all the other exciting things that happen through the year.


Hopefully as the year progresses I will be able to manage to speak a little more Spanish than Hola and dos cerveza as the whole school will be learning to speak Spanish this year. Children in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 will learn informally a few basic Spanish words and children in Key Stage 2 will have Spanish lessons building up their vocabulary and understanding of the language. Later in the Year we will be holding a ‘Spanish Week’ in school focusing on everything related to the language and to the countries where Spanish is spoken.

Listen to the Friday News

Clever Mr Dyer not only does he have the Friday News for you to read on our web site but he now has a Lion reading the Friday News aloud to you too. Check it out, we were all mesmerised by this very well spoken lion reading to us when we took a look at the web site on Monday.

Lost Property

We currently have a lost property mountain in the hall. Please check the mountain very soon for any lost items before we send it all off to a charity shop.
