Ten Acts of Service 

  1. Street Dance Charity Fundraiser (the children would like to invite their parents in to watch the street dance they have been working on suggested donation 50p to donate to Ukraine).
  2. Everyone to bring in an item of clothing for the clothes bank (Mrs Parker to collect and donate at the end of term).
  3. Everyone to plant a plant in their garden (if no garden they can plant at school or a family member garden).
  4. Buy someone some flowers (e.g. a teacher, neighbour, elderly relative).
  5. Send a card to someone with some words of encouragement.
  6. As a class visit St Johns and place flowers on the graves of people that don’t have any flowers on (could put palm crosses on too).
  7. Buy Mrs Norton some chocolates to show that we appreciate her and enjoy her assemblies.
  8. Bake cakes/cookies (at home) to deliver to local care home (we will have a specific week for children to bake at home and bring their cakes and cookies in- optional).
  9. Donate 10 items (or what you can) to the local Foodbank (e.g. when doing weekly shop Sainsburys as a drop off point at checkouts).
  10. Class Angels.

Notes from your Teachers

You will now find all messages relating to Home Learning on Teams 




Dear Parents/Carers,

Please find an information video which I have put together on how you can support your child with learning to spell. These strategies can be used during as well as post Lockdown to inspire your child to learn their spellings and retain them.


I have also added a crib sheet of the strategies presented in the video as well as some additional strategies which aren't mentioned in the video.


Next week, the video will be moved to the Video Centre.


I hope you find it useful.
