Marvellous Maths!

We have had a wonderful week of maths filled activities during our Big Maths Week in school this week. Mr Griffiths, our Numeracy Subject Leader, launched the week with a school game of Play Your Cards Right in our assembly on Monday and children have been involved in a range of maths challenges and activities throughout the week.

We were also joined by several parents who volunteered to come into speak to classes about how they use maths in everyday life:

  • Mrs Satchithananda spoke to Amethyst class about her work as a doctor.
  • Mrs Edwards worked with Pearl and Sapphire classes measuring and problem solving amounts of fabric for some wonderful class bunting.
  • Mrs Saunders and Mrs Sullivan shared their experiences in their work as a Physiotherapist and GP with Amber class.
  • Mrs Marshall showed Ruby class how maths helps her in her engineering work
  • Mr Wilding gave Diamond class an insight into the world of finance and budgeting.

Many thanks to all of these volunteers for giving their time and expertise – I know the children found these sessions really valuable and interesting.

Thank you also to those parents who attended our second maths calculation evening on Wednesday. Our sessions focused on division and multiplication skills and I know many of the parents who attended found the sessions informative and helpful.

Our Maths Hat parade ended our special week this afternoon with a wonderful array of imaginative and creative ideas on show. Well done to everyone who took part. Thank you to Mr Griffiths for organising such a successful week in school.

Book Fair

Thank you to Mrs Heathcock and her Librarians for their hard work organising and running our Book Fair in school. Congratulations to Ellis Haycock, Emma Mansell, Connor Robb, Esther Wilding and Annie Goodwin who won the Book Fair writing competition.

I am delighted to report that this event raised £832.87 for school which we will be able to use towards new books for our library.

This would not be possible without the tremendous support of families visiting the fair each day. Thank you.


Children in each class have been busy designing their own Christmas Cards to be printed as part of FASA's fund raising for school. Each child's card will be made into a sample card and families will be able to order packs of these cards with some of the proceeds going to school funds. Look out for the samples in your child/ren's reading bags later this term.

Thank you to all of the families who have donated to our Rag Bag Bin recently. Remember, any old clothes, shoes or covers that are donated are converted to money for school resources.

Harvest Service

Our service will take place on Monday 7th October at 2.00pm at St James' Church. All of the children from Reception to Year 6 will be walked down for the service and we will need parent volunteers to help with this. Please let your child's class teacher know if you are able to help. I look forward to celebrating this special service with many of you.
