Marcham C of E Primary School

"Where Christian values are integral and learning is fun"




Dear Parents,


We hope that you have all had a wonderful Easter holiday and enjoyed the good weather.


This term Mrs Hookham will be teaching Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Miss Rowlands will be teaching Thursday and Friday. Teaching assistants are Mrs Mahoney, Miss Thorpe and Mrs Phillips..


This term our topic is, ‘How does your garden grow?’ Please see the parent overview to find out what the children are learning.

The first week of term is Humanities week. We will be studying how Easter is celebrated in Germany.


Food and Drink

Please ensure your child has a water bottle in school. They are able to access this throughout the day at any time and we will refill it if required. The children are given a piece of fruit each day. Your child is also welcome to bring in a piece of fruit from home if they would prefer. For lunch they can have a free school meal or packed lunch.



Please try to read with your child each evening. We are happy to change your child’s book for them. Please leave it in the book box by the front of the classroom. It will then be changed for the end of the day. We will listen to your child read once a week.



Literacy is given out Monday and due back by Thursday. Maths is given out on Thursday and due back Monday. Thank you for your support with this.



We do find that the children get engaged in activities and can have accidents. They are reminded and asked to go to the toilet regularly. We do have spare clothes for them to change into. Can we please have the items washed and returned?


P.E. Kit

We will be doing PE outside this term. Children need to have trainers that they are able to run in and move about safely in. Please bring P.E. kits in on Monday and leave in school. P.E. lessons are usually Monday and Friday.



We hope that everyone is able to access Tapestry and that you have enjoyed seeing all the things your child does in school. They are so busy! Please let us know if you are having any difficulties and we will try to fix them.


Forest School

The children have enjoyed this so far. They will continue this experience every other week.


Kind regards,


Kerry Hookham and Julie Rowlands.
