Good morning Kingfishers,


What an incredible week of learning, Kingfishers! It has been so pleasing to hear from many more of you and see all of the amazing things you have been doing. I have been blown away by some of the effort I have seen.


First of all, a huge well done to Bethany for receiving the Home Learning Headteacher’s Award this week. Don’t forget to watch Mr Baker’s assembly on the Home Learning page.


This week’s shout-outs:

Chace – great effort writing your own version of Little Red Riding Hood and writing your directions on your map.

Isla – an intriguing description of her imaginary creature, the pussdog, that lives in the sea. Fantastic language.

Lily – a whole range of fantastic work on the 2 days she’s not in school! Great to see you doing your dance lessons via video too.

Lana – keeping herself busy, having a go at all the work on the Home Learning page. Good effort.

Daniel – a super hard worker throughout this whole time with a range of work from all subjects. Great to hear from you.

Brandon – Carrying on his theme of a wolf, he has created his villain for a fairytale and he has been a Maths superstar.

Hannah – describing her fairytale character after lots of good discussion with Mum.

Bethany – A well-planned comic strip with carefully chosen language.



Well done to these children who have been on to TTRockstars to keep up their times tables skills this week: Bethany, Isla, Brandon, Anya, Teddy, Lara, Lana, Thomas, Leonne, Ernest, Natalia, Lola, Gracie, Lily, Caitlin and Fletcher.



Well done everyone who had a go on Sumdog last week. Unfortunately, it is no longer free to play the Spelling and Grammar games or to give you rewards. Luckily, you can carry on playing your Maths games.



Keep up the hard work, Kingfishers and please send me a photo of the piece of work you are most proud of by the end of the week.

There’s lots of exciting learning to have a go at this week so take a look at the Home Learning page. Remember, everyone is doing the same learning, in school and at home, so we can all share photos of our learning together.


Have a good week, Kingfishers.


Mrs Raper

Today Mr Baker made our school fox very cross by waking him up from a lovely snooze in the pond area. We have at least 4 fox cubs in the family too but they were too quick for the camera!
