Year 1 Phonics Screening Check - Mrs Webster-Smith will be administering this to all the children in year 1 this week. Please ensure that you have used the sheets that were sent home to practise both real words and the nonsense words using the strategies explained. 


Our final topic for this year is - 'I do like to be beside the seaside!' - where the work is based around History, Geography, Science, Art and D&T.


Pencil case list…….We are conscious that many children are currently bringing pencil cases and stationery equipment into school and that it would be useful to clarify the equipment that they need to have available. It is also an area that the school would find it very useful to have supplied by parents, in order to focus our resources on the things that can only be provided through the school. The list below explains what items we are asking you to provide from September.

If your child is in KS1:

  • 2 x HB pencils
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Ruler for underlining – ideally a 15cm (6") or folding ruler would be ideal – so that it fits inside the case (maths rulers will be provided)
  • Rubber (we prefer children to cross out errors, but there are some occasions when rubbers are useful)
  • Green handwriting pen for chameleon work (biro is acceptable but not gel pens and not fluorescent green).

These items should be in a simple pencil case, that is clearly labelled and does not have games or novelties attached to it (these can cause a considerable distraction).

​Please speak to your child's class teacher if you have any queries.
