Forest School and PE

Dear Red Class Families ,


Mrs James and I have been very pleased with the level of independence demonstrated by the children when changing for Forest School and PE. We have noticed that a few children find the buttons on their t.shirts a little tricky to open and fasten so a little extra practise at home would be appreciated (although we know they are fiddly). If all clothing (including school shoes) could be named that would further help the children and the adults!


Thank you for your continued support

Mrs Webb, Mrs James and Mrs Thompson.

Bishops Wood Trip

Hello Red Class,


Thank you for a super day at Bishops Wood! You tried hard with your listening and your manners were excellent. The Bishops Wood leader said you were the best organised class she had ever seen! I also really enjoyed the commentary on the coach:

"There's the bumpy road" (speed bumps along School Lane).

"There's the wiggly road" (Spirehouse Lane).

"I can see Sanders Park".

"I've been to Stourport, there's a park with rides".



When we arrived at Bishops Wood, we enjoyed listening to stories about the oak and silver birch trees, collected natural treasures, completed tree rubbings and even sketched the trees. Finally we listened to a story about stick people and made our very own stick people. What a busy day! Thank you to the Blackwell Kitchen for our super picnic too.


See you tomorrow,

Mrs Webb, Mrs Thompson and Mrs Moran


Forest School

Dear Families,


Mrs Webb and I have really enjoyed meeting lots of you this week to discuss the super start children have made in Red Class. If you couldn’t make an appointment this week, we are usually available at 3.15pm each day for an informal chat about anything you wish to discuss.

This Friday (12.9.14) Red Class will start their ForestSchool sessions. Please send children into school wearing a pair of old jogging bottoms every Friday. Children will remain in these for the day and should be worn with their normal school shirt and jumper or cardigan. If you haven’t already, please send in a pair of named wellies which can remain is school as Red Class will be doing lots of outdoor learning. As we will be changing footwear regularly, please can you name shoes as it is often hard to tell who they belong to when they all look the same!

We appreciate there are so many new routines for adults and children to get used to at the beginning of term but we are grateful for your support.

I look forward to seeing Red Class on Friday and can’t wait to get very muddy!

Mrs James

A Super Start

Hello Red Class,


What a super start to the year! We are busy learning our class rules and routines and this will be our focus for the next couple of weeks. You were very good at tidying! Tomorrow put your coat, water bottle and book bag away (your grownup can help you) and then sit on the carpet ready for singing. You were excellent at sitting on the carpet this morning!


Grownups, tomorrow we will label the top of your child's water bottle with their initials to make it easier for them to find. You're more than welcome to do this at home if you want to.


See you tomorrow Red Class,

Your First Day

Hello Red Class,


It's your very first day at school tomorrow! We're all very excited to meet you and to have lots of fun in your new classroom. When you come into school please ask your grownup to put your wellies on the rack at the bottom of the ramp (by the classroom). You will then see Mrs Franklin at the door and she will show you where to hang your coat and PE kit. Finally come into the classroom and sit down with your book bag ready to sing songs with Mrs Webb.


On the first day please bring a healthy snack from home, such as a piece of fruit, so there is one less job for you to do. Please remember to bring your special boxes into school too so that we can find out all about you.


See you tomorrow Red Class,

From a very excited Mrs Webb!

Well done!

Hello Red Class,


Well done for all your hard work this half term! You have really impressed me with all your great homework tasks and your hard work and enthusiasm in the classroom. I hope you have a restful break and I look forward to seeing you all back on Monday 2nd June ready to begin our new topic!

Easter Celebration morning

Dear Parents,


If you are unable to attend Wednesday morning's Easter Celebration and you would still like your child to have refreshments please send £1 in to school with them on the day. They will be able to enjoy the refreshments with a member of staff unless there is another parent (in the same time slot) who you would like them to join. Please let us know if this is the case.


Many thanks.

Happy Half Term

Well done for another great half term Red class. You have all worked very hard and you are making great progress, especially with your writing! Keep up the hard work at home. Have a safe and happy half term and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday 24th February! You are all invited to come dressed as a pirate to begin our new topic. Have a lovely break.

Theatre Trip

Just a reminder that all children need to bring a packed lunch with them tomorrow (preferably in a plastic bag) with a couple of drinks.


Thank you.
