Settling in

Settling in

This week we’ve been reading the story ‘Starting School’. We noticed that we do lots of the things the children in the story do! We’ve been getting used to our learning space and are now settling into lunch time routines.

Our first week at school!

Our first week at school!

We’ve had a very busy and exciting week down in Early Years. On Wednesday, we started coming to school all day and we looked very smart in our uniform. Since Wednesday, we’ve had lots of fun exploring our inside and outside learning spaces.

Roar-some poetry in Year 1

Roar-some poetry in Year 1

We are fully in the swing of Autumn 1! We have really got used to doing phonics, writing, maths and afternoon learning every day now which is fantastic! In our writing we wrote some roar-some acrostic poems inspired by lion. We explored poems and wrote sentences for our Big Write piece together which went in our Theme Folders.

Refund Due

Refund Due

Year One Parents:
The trip to Sacrewell Farm that your children attended last year has come in a little cheaper than we thought. So you’re all entitled to a £1 refund!

Pop in to the school office to collect your £1. If you do it by Friday it’ll give you some change to use for Ice cream Friday (Hint, hint!).

Year Two Have Been Reading

Year Two Have Been Reading

This week in year two we have begun completing AR reading quizzes. It has been fantastic and many children have already scored 100% on a quiz. Scoring 100% is exciting in year two because you are awarded a star and gain three house tokens for your house. Keep up the great work year two!

Home and Away

Home and Away

Our topic this term is Home and Away. We are focusing on exploring our local town of Huntingdon. We will be comparing the United Kingdon to India. So far we have explored about our local area and thought about why Huntingdon is a town and what there is to do. We know that the population of Huntingdon is over 23,000!

 

Welcome Back

Welcome Back

Welcome back to Year 3, we hope that you have had a relaxing summer holiday. It was lovely to see so many parents and carers at Meet the Teacher yesterday. If you were unable to attend or have any other questions please ask Miss Martin or Miss Reeve.

Our theme this Autumn Terms is called ‘From Huntingdon to Rome’. Within this topic the children will be developing their geography skills. The children will be exploring the geographical similarities and differences between Huntingdon and Rome as well as developing their map and compass skills. The children will go on a local walk to collect information to create their very own map.

Heat Closure

Heat Closure

The weather has been absolutely scorching and is due to be even hotter tomorrow for our final day.

Although parts of our school are air conditioned, not all the year groups are.

We’re asking you to collect your children early, before the hottest part of the day. We will be closing school at 12.15pm on Wednesday, just before lunchtime. If you’re unable to collect your child early, please let the school office know by phoning 01480 375113 or stopping by in person.

If your child usually walks home on their own and you would like them to be able to do so at 12.15pm then we must have written permission. Please send a signed note in with your child giving permission to walk home with the child’s name, class and your own name. We can’t accept verbal permission.

We wish you all a lovely summer holiday!

SeeSaw in Year 6

SeeSaw in Year 6

We have had another great week in Year 6 and have been putting more and more of our work on SeeSaw, including maths reasoning and our role play in history of the great influencers of the Early Islamic Civilisation. Please take a moment to look at the wonderful work the children have added to their SeeSaw account, and if you can, leave a comment. The children love to hear from family at home and see their views on the work they are doing. If you are not yet connected to your child’s SeeSaw account, please come and see your child’s class teacher for further information.

Open Days

Open Days

For current Year six pupils, it’s (already!) time to start thinking about secondary schools. Schools across Cambridgeshire are holding open days/evenings where you can visit the school, meet the teachers and generally have a nose around.

See the attached list for dates and times of each school.
