Our Year R Teachers Mrs Felgate and Mrs Mrs McFarlane (Potter), Mrs Loan (Milne) and Miss Warren (Andersen) welcome you and along with the following support staff members; Mrs Ares Higher Level Teaching Assistant, Mrs Bhandari (Teaching Assistant), Mrs Hams (Teaching Assistant), Mrs Juneja (Teaching Assistant), Mrs Hodgkinson (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Sheath (Teaching Assistant) very much look forward to getting to know you and your children over the coming year.
The information below will keep you up-to-date with what is happening in class each week and ways in which you can support your child with their learning.
ChessKid is an online chess learning and playing zone designed for ages 5-11. Children who have no prior knowledge of chess will be able to learn how to play the game. Those who already know how to play will be able to develop their skills and challenge their friends, while tracking their improvement.
Chess in Schools and Communities (CSC) is a charity that delivers chess activities to over 340 schools nationwide. They have offered free gold ChessKid accounts for your children to use at home (valid until 20th July 2020). To register for your account, simply click on the link below:
Your child’s account will automatically sit in our school’s ChessKid group. CSC will then be able to run chess competitions and activities among our children, and involve them in the tournaments and challenges they are running nationwide.
Please note: if you have more than one child you can use the link multiple times. A different adult email address will be required for each account.
Online Reading Books
|KEEPING IN TOUCH:
Each class has a 'Going home' book kept by the door for you to keep us informed of any changes in the collection arrangements for your child. If you need to let us know any information relevant to your child, please write a letter, or a member of staff is available on the door in the morning for brief messages. Your child's class teacher is usually available for longer chats at the end of the day, or alternatively you can make an appointment with your child's class teacher by contacting the School Office (01483 563701 or
