Dear Parents and Carers                                                                                                     3 July 2020

It has been lovely to see our Year 4 children in school this week. Meeting them at the door each morning and seeing them look both a little nervous, but also very excited to meet up with their class mates has been a real joy for me.  It is hard to believe that we only have two weeks left of this academic year. On Wednesday, we will be sending home your child’s school report. We have made the decision to send these through the post this year so both home schooled and those pupils in school receive their reports at a similar time.

It has been a very busy week for our home and school learners – here is a quick summary of what has been going on in each of the classes.

Hatchmere have had a great week this week and made the most of the weather, still enjoying getting out in the dry spells! Yesterday they completed a 3D shape hunt around school which was lots of fun. Looking at sea creatures this week, they created handprint fish for a display in the library and completed some descriptive writing. In phonics they’ve been practising segmenting words to spell them which helps the children in their independent writing.

This week Oakmere have been busy learning about positions and directions in maths.  One of the activities was to produce a treasure map to find the magical treasure!  The attention to detail was fantastic, adding landmarks and clues to help the person find the treasure.  As well as this, the children wrote a list of instructions using positions and directions for the map.  In literacy, the children produced fantastic fact files based on the work of discovering dinosaur bones around the world.  An impressive week! 

Sandymere have continued their home learning and the work they have sent in has been very impressive. The children have enjoyed writing and performing “Eye spy colour poems” inspired by Pie Corbett. Mrs Garner has been impressed with the performances emailed in and is very proud of the class. In maths, the children have focused on time, looking at five minutes intervals.

This week Blakemere have been learning all about money in their maths lessons. They have explored needs and wants and they have learnt about the importance of saving money. In literacy, they have been focusing on applying their grammar knowledge to up-level sentences. As well as working hard with their maths and literacy, Blakemere have been getting creative and decorating stones. We have had some great ones sent in: a unicorn, insects, people and a monster!

It's been lovely to have Nunsmere back this week and see their happy faces. They have adjusted brilliantly and quickly, playing with each other really well. They have produced some fantastic pieces of writing during their days in school and have taken part in some great maths challenges, as well as PE and some creative lessons too! It has been lovely to see you for a few days in school and we look forward to welcoming you back in September.

Following a few days spent in school last week, Pickmere have settled back into the routine of home learning this week. In maths they have been busy learning all about finances. They started the week by trying to plan and budget a children's birthday party. A few children were shocked at the level of preparation required when planning a party. As the week progressed they started to look at exchange rates and multiplication. In Literacy Miss Wild and the Pickmere team have been really impressed with some of the creative writing and spelling work that has been emailed in - well done Year 5!

This week the children in Linmere have been filming some scenes from the Lion King. Under the circumstances they have done a fantastic job and I can't wait to see the final performance put together. They have also completed some amazing art work for the library and there are some lovely pictures on Twitter of this. 

At the time of writing this week’s newsletter, the guidance on the return to school in September has just been sent through. On initial reading it confirms that all children will be returning. As soon as we can, we will send out all the arrangements for September. As I mentioned in last week’s newsletter, all children will be returning in full PE kits for the first half term, and not our regular school uniform.

Below is a reminder of the drop off times for all our current bubbles. Please stick to these timings and for those parents dropping off in the school carpark can we request that if you are early, please park and wait for a member of staff to arrive to supervise your child/children down the path.

This week, Mrs Oliver has returned to school full time. She has been working incredibly hard at home during lock down, but is now in school providing support for us all. As our phone and admin email is monitored throughout the school day, the direct email to me This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you need to contact me for any reason – please phone school on 01829 707979 or email at the usual admin address.  Emergency contact details are available on the school website, if needed.

Enjoy your weekend


Thank you and take care
