Headteacher's Message

Mr N Lambert

Dear Parents/Carers,

As you can see from this newsletter, we’ve had a busy half term and we have managed to combine a lot of hard work with a bit of fun!

It was great to see so many pupils and staff dress up for World Book Day on Thursday 1st March.

We had a good attendance at the Year 1 Phonics Workshop. Thank you for your support – it is important to the children!

We continue to work hard on improving our teaching of reading. As I mentioned in our last newsletter we are introducing ‘whole class teaching’ of reading. This will start straight after Easter in all year groups.


The books we will be using are as follows:-

Year 1 – Beegu – Alexis Deacon

Year 2 – Flat Stanley – Jeff Brown

Year 3 – Fantastic Mr Fox – Roald Dahl

Year 4 – How to Train Your Dragon – Cressida Cowell

Year 5 – Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief – Rick Riordan

Year 6 – The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas – John Boyne

We know that the children will be very excited about the new way of being taught reading.

I do hope that you and your family have an enjoyable and restful Easter break.


Yours faithfully,

Nick Lambert
