What we do

The children are doing a great job working towards their reading rewards so far this year. We would be grateful if you could also support your child with their reading at home. We expect a weekly minimum of 3 ‘reads’ which should be recorded in comment books and signed by a parent/carer.

If you have any problems or require a meeting with any of the teachers for any reason, please come in or ring to make an appointment (preferably at the end of the school day).

We look forward to continuing to work with you all this half term.

Mrs Bond, Mr Wright, Miss Strike, Miss Bowers and Mrs Francis

Welcome back after the half term break – we hope you have had lots of fun and are well- rested!

Our topic for the upcoming half term is Shakespeare and we will be learning about ‘The Merchant of Venice’. As well as learning the story, we will be exploring Shakespearean language through drama and considering the theme of ‘risk and rewards’. We will also be learning about where Shakespeare lived and his life.

During our whole school Shakespeare week, the Nottingham Playhouse will be coming into school on the 18th March to perform the play to Key Stage 2 children.
