Friday 6th September

Dear Parents and Carers,


We are delighted with how well everyone has settled into their new classes.

The classes are;


Green Class            Nursery            Miss Dodd (Teacher)    Miss Pogue (Teaching Assistant)

Yellow Class           Reception         Miss Evans (Teacher)

Blue Class                   Reception         Mrs Dewar (Teacher)

Yellow & Blue             Reception         Mrs Cannon and Miss Kirtley (Teaching Assistants)



The children have done an excellent job of remembering their sounds and we are practising writing the letters. Please bring homework folders back to school by Thursday each week so that we can send the new sounds home.


Reading Folders

Please bring reading folders to school every day. They are very handy for putting letters and the children’s work in. The children will be able to choose library books to take home on a Friday. We appreciate that some of you are waiting for reading folders from Emblematic, so any bag will do for now!



PLEASE make sure that your child’s name is in all their clothing including shoes, coats and caps. The children can be very upset when they can’t find their jumpers or coats. Writing with a biro on labels works well and lasts a surprisingly long time. We still have some lost property from nursery, please come and check if anything belongs to you.


Reading Meeting

We will be holding a meeting for all parents at 2.30 on Friday 27th September. This will cover our phonics scheme ‘Read Write Inc’, moving on to reading books and what you can do to help at home.


Water Bottles

Please remember that water bottles should be named and contain only plain water.


Local Visit

We are hoping to take the children to visit Bedlington library in class groups. More details will follow nearer the time.
