Hello parents and carers,


Welcome back!


I hope you have enjoyed a relaxing half term. There are a few changes that you need to be aware of in the next half term.


Firstly, it is now our turn for swimming and this will begin WB: 25.10.21. Every Wednesday afternoon, we will be swimming at the Loughborough Leisure centre and as such, your children will need to come into school either with, or wearing their swimming costumes.


Secondly, in line with our weekly swimming sessions, the children will now forego a second PE session. Instead, we will have one outdoor session per week to run alongside the swimming and this will be on Mondays. Obviously, it is getting colder now and so it is paramount that children come with suitable outdoor clothing, including jumpers and a change of socks and shoes.


Homework will still be sent out on a Thursday (to be completed weekly), alongside the EPIC homework, which does not need to be completed in one week, but over the course of many.


Finally, it is imperative that you continue to read with your children and facilitate times table practice. Both of these extra requests are to ensure the recovery of diminished skills as well as their fruitful subsequent development.


If you have any questions, please do get in touch with me.


Many thanks,


Mr Froud


Hello, parents and carers and welcome, children to the new school year.


I will post notices containing information you need to know in this space as and when, so please refer to this page or the class Seesaw page if you have any questions about anything that is happening in school.


There are a few things I need to say at the point and I have itemised these below:

  • PE – Mondays (outdoor – please bring spare socks and shoes) and Wednesday (indoor). Please ensure your children adhere to the dress code as set out in Mrs Mock’s letter.
  • Swimming – this will not be happening for children in Class Emerald until the second half of the autumn term, after half term in October.
  • Practising counting and TTRS – This is an important year for the Year Four children especially and they need to be practising their times tables little and often across the course of the year. Any questions you have about Times Table Rockstars (TTRS), please just ask.
  • Homework -  Daily reading and TTRS. Weekly Reading tasks on Seesaw (Out on Thursday - due in Tuesday) and EPIC homework. 
  • Maths - On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Maths is taught in Class Emerald for Year 4 children and Class Sapphire for Year 3 children. On Fridays we all stay in Class Emerald. 


Remember all you need is a coat, your reading book and your lunch box each day. Please do not bring anything you don't need. This helps us keep our classroom tidy.


One last point, please make sure that you bring reading diaries into school every day as I will be tracking this regularly.


Kind regards,


Mr Froud
