Year 3 spellings!

On Friday (1st Dec), year 3 will be doing their spelling touchdown, below are the words that we will be spelling so if you could practise with the children at home. There are lots of inventive ways to practise spelling; rainbow writing, pyramid writing, look-read-cover-write-check… These words are a mixture of year 3/4 common exception words, alongside some words that we have used throughout our expedition!











Thank you for your support!

Christmas Family Bingo Tickets still available

On Thursday 7th December, Year 6 will be hosting a ‘Christmas Themed Family Bingo Night’ in the school hall. Last Summer’s event was a huge success and lots of fun was had by all who attended.

This is a family event therefore all children must be accompanied by a grown-up so that they can play the game. Entrance tickets cost 50p per person – a ticket must be purchased for each person attending the event.  Admission is by ticket only.

Due to fire regulations ticket availability is strictly limited.  If you would like to purchase tickets, please send money in an envelope clearly labelled with your child’s name, class and the number of tickets required.  The Year 6 children will collect money from classrooms and allocate tickets accordingly.  

Doors will open at 5:30pm with ‘Eyes Down’ at 6:00pm.

The cards for each game will be on sale on the night and there will be 6 different coloured games during the evening with lots of Christmas / chocolate themed prizes. Bingo cards will cost 20p each or cost £1 a coloured strip for 6 cards. You can even take advantage of our offer of 6 coloured strips for £5! Of course, you can play as many cards as you can manage in each game.

Refreshments will be on sale during the evening and all funds raised are to go towards the Year 6 leavers and end of year celebrations.   A raffle will also be held – if you are able to donate a prize for this it would be greatly appreciated.

I do hope you will be able to support us at this event. The more people who come the better the atmosphere so please do try to fit this event into your diary; get on your Christmas jumpers and come and have some fun!


As part of our expedition next term we are raising money to buy our children traditional tales and some for our community to promote reading for pleasure. To raise the money, we are hosting a used book and toy sale after Christmas. If you are having a clear out before or after Christmas and have anything you are able to donate, we would really appreciate the support. Please bring any donations to Nursery.

Many thanks,
