"Where Christian values are integral and learning is fun"


Welcome to Tigers


January 2019


Welcome back to the last term of the school year. Hopefully you all had an enjoyable break and are rested ready for a busy and exciting end to the year. Our topic for this term is ‘Castles’ and will explore the buildings themselves as well as their inhabitants. The attached curriculum map will give you more information.


PE for this term will take place on a Wednesday. We will be outside as much as possible so please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school for this. I would like to reinforce the importance of your child having the correct footwear for PE. In addition there is lots of old PE kit and trainers/ plimsolls in our spare kit box so if your child has lost anything if could be there which you are more than welcome to look at. To avoid this problem we politely ask that you name and label all your child’s kit.


If your child did not pass the phonics screening test last year they will be taking it again in the w/c 10th June. The format is quick and simple and the children have been made familiar with practise materials and are well prepared so there will be minimal disruption to our normal routine. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions. The results will be published alongside the children’s school reports.


We will continue to set Maths and english homework and you child now has access to Times Tables Rockstars. Please do contact me if you are unable to log in or you are having any problems.


We would also ask that you continue to read as often as possible with your child at home and record any reading in your child’s reading record, whether it is their school reading book or other material at home. This acts as a useful record and a means of communication between home and school.


Towards the end of the term we will also be hosting sports day at school with more details to follow and of course end of year reports will go out this term too.

I hope we can all work hard and enjoy our final busy and exciting term together as the Tigers.


Best wishes, Miss Ferryman
