We’ve had another busy week in Hatchmere and the children have been amazing, yet again!


I know we’ve said it in all of our blog post since school reopened but the staff in Hatchmere really couldn’t be more proud of how well they have adapted to the changes in school. This week there has been more changes in school so we have had to adapt the times of our break times and the children have taken it all in their stride.


In phonics this week we’ve been recapping some of the harder phase 3 sounds whilst also practising segmenting and blending longer phase 4 words. The trigraphs we’ve looked at this week is /ear/ as in fear, /ure/ as in pure and we also looked at the digraph /er/ as in sister. Although we can’t complete 1:1 reading assessments in school the children are still getting lots of opportunity to practise reading with the support of an adult. On a Monday children will be given a book from the colour band they are currently on. Please continue to read with your child as much as possible, Hatchmere still have access to the Oxford Owl website to read online book banded books.




Whilst outside today we had a nice surprise, the Oakmere A bubble found a pigeon nest in the Jubilee Garden. Once they had gone inside we went in groups to quietly go and look at the nest, it was lovely for the children to see a birds nest so close. We could even see the fluffy chicks beneath the pigeon sat on the nest!


In PE this week Hatchmere have learnt some new socially distanced games and taken part in lots of relay and obstacle races with Mr Freeman. On Thursday and Friday we practised these again and used the parachute during a PE lesson with Miss Hume and Mr Freeman.


We hope you have a lovely weekend,

The Hatchmere team
