Spring Term 2024

We hope you have had a relaxing festive break. 

We would like to assure you that we continue to care greatly about the wellbeing of our pupils as well as helping them to achieve the aims of the curriculum. Children who encounter difficulties coping with any aspect of school life will be sensitively supported; we want every child to feel safe and maintain a positive wellbeing.    

Please ensure your child has all equipment ready to learn, particularly blue handwriting pens, glue sticks, scissors and whiteboard pens.  

Swimming 

India will continue swimming on Thursday afternoons. We will be travelling by coach to Active Learning in Hemel Hempstead. On our swimming day, your child should have a separate bag for swimming containing a swimming hat, costume/trunks (not long board shorts), towel and goggles if needed. They may also want to bring an extra healthy snack to eat once we return to school. 

Young Voices 

The concert is on 19th January.  

Homework 

Given out on a Monday and to be handed in on the following Monday. 

Reading at least 4 times a week (parent initial in planner please)

Please continue to sign your child’s planner each week. 

Mobile phones 

In year 5, your child is allowed to bring in a mobile phone since they may now start to walk to and from school independently. Their phones must be turned off once they reach the school gate in the morning and handed in to their teacher during registration. At the end of the school day, the phone will be returned to your child which should not be turned on until they leave the school gate. Please ensure your child is aware that the phone is only to be used for the purpose of contacting yourself/family and not to use it when crossing roads.
