Home Reading Books

In order to reduce shared resources between home and school, we are changing the way in which we organise our home reading. We will be sending an appropriate reading book home with your child on a Friday along with their Reading Diary, we will not comment directly in the Reading Diaries but will check your comments and contributions. Their books will be changed on the following Friday.

Children will read at school on a regular basis and we will keep our own detailed records. Feedback on the progress your child is making and any support you may be able to offer will be communicated to you via your child’s class email. Likewise, we would encourage you to communicate with your child’s class teacher via the class email.

Younger pupils will be able to access additional reading books using our Bug Club online reading resource and complete a wide range of reading based games and activities. Their class teacher is able to see their progress. Should you have any difficulties accessing this resource please contact your child’s class teacher. We appreciate your continued support.

Meet your new teacher!

As we are unable to have a normal transition into our new classes, the teachers have produced a short video to introduce themselves to their new pupils. We are all looking forward to meeting you properly in September.  Have a wonderful Summer and stay safe!

‘Bubbles’, ‘Masks’ and ‘Rainbows’.

As a number of children have now returned to school. We have settled into our ‘bubbles’.

I would like to share a book with you about being in a bubble. I have also attached an activity to complete together for discussion about returning to school.

Coming_back_to_school_in_a_bubble__A_book_for_children__1_

I am also attaching 2 books by Deana Sobel, ‘Masks’ and ‘Rainbows’. These books are available to help with any discussion your child has with questions and anxiety.

Rocky the Covid snake

Thank you to all so far who have added to the Covid snake. We have placed the snake in the school quad area. If you would like to add a rock, we have left a box  just outside the school reception. This will be left outside the school during school hours ( then brought in out of school hours).
Please place your rock in the box and we will collect 72 hours later.

So far we have a snakes head, our Christian Values ‘courage, respect and belief’  rock and Hawkstone’s class rocks.

How long can we make our snake?

Happy rock painting!
