Welcome Back!

I hope you had a restful and/or fun October holidays! The children have settled back into school well this week and we look forward to a busy term ahead.

Red Profile Folders

Thank you to everyone who has sent the folders back and for the supportive comments on the End of Term Profile and the Key Assessment Task. Can I ask anyone with a folder at home to please return these on Monday 4th November. Thank you.


We will continue to have P.E on a Tuesday ( Mrs Woodhouse from the High School every second Tuesday) and Thursday. Can I gently remind everyone that all children need the following P.E kit: t-shirt, shorts, outdoor trainers, water bottle and a hair bobble for those with long hair. Many thanks for your support with this.


I am currently ensuring that all children are reading an appropriate book for their level and therefore you many notice changes in the books which go home over the next few weeks as I assess. Supporting reading at home is very beneficial for the children’s progress and please feel free to write a note to me in the ‘Reading Record’ if you wish. (Please tell your child if there is a note they need to give me so I can respond promptly). Thank you.

Finally, at the end of term I asked the children to give me feedback about our class by sharing what they thought was ‘tops’ or ‘pants’. The main impact of the feedback so far is that the children now have a set ‘home’ table and space to sit. We still move around for a lot of learning, but children now have consistent table partners and therefore can ensure their own table is organised and tidy. Here are a few examples of the feedback:


” I like the class jobs, chromebooks, lunch thing and choosing”

” I like that we have a pirate ship (toy)”

”I like the book corner”

”Ms. Mackay”

”I like making up stories”

”I like it now”


”I would like to have our own table”

”Take the creepy skeleton away”

”Do more Maths”

”I want a toy unicorn”

”I want more choosing”

”play on the Chrome Books more often”

Please catch me at home time or get in touch via the main office if there is anything you wish to discuss.

Ms. Mackay
