Mrs Wibberley will provide small group support to the children for one hour on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings and on Thursday afternoons. Mrs Barlow will teach the Art lesson on Tuesday afternoons (whilst I have Planning, Preparation and Assessment time). On Friday mornings, whilst I fulfil my SENCO responsibilities, Mrs Barlow will carry out the spelling test and teach the RE lesson.

Topic Resources

Please click on the picture link to access resources to support your topic work this half term. 

Purple Mash

Please can I encourage you to sign up for/install Purple Mash at home. Your child can access Purple Mash from home on a laptop, desktop or a tablet. Purple Mash is a safe environment that does not require any downloading or allow interaction with people online and children cannot make any financial transactions. We will be encouraging the children to continue their learning at home and Purple Mash is a great resource for this. Your child will be taught how to use Purple Mash in school and will be able to use it without supervision, but you may want to take a few minutes to explore it yourself so that you can help them with their work. Please click on the picture link to login to Purple Mash.

Note:  You have already had your child’s username and password - please let me know if you need this again.

Monday afternoon (Mrs Parkin) Football/ Netball
Friday afternoon (Miss Olivia) Dance
Please ensure that your child has the correct PE kit in school. If your child has part or all of their PE kit missing then you will be informed by text to enable you to ensure that they have their full kit for the next lesson.


In Key Stage 2, children are allowed to bring in their own fruit or vegetable snack to eat at playtime.  Snacks should be fruit or vegetables – this does not include snacks containing fruit e.g. cereal bars.  School does not provide milk but this can be purchased each half-term via arrangement with the school office.

Making Appointments

Please contact the school office to make an appointment if you would like to speak to us about the contents of this newsletter or indeed any other matter. For reasons of safeguarding, children must be supervised as they enter the classroom at the start of the school day and as they leave in the afternoon. This means it is not practically possible for adults welcoming or dismissing the children to speak at length to family members - we do appreciate your understanding with regard to this.
