Victorian Day

19th October - Meet at Crowthorne Station.



Well done for the great start to the Autumn term and the school year.  Great to see so many of you with all the right attitude and equipment.

We will be reading A series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket and War Horse by Michael Morpurgo during the first half term, followed by Wonder by RJ Palacio in the second half. 

We will be travelling by train to Reading Museum on 19th October.  This is as part of our Victorian history topic and it would be great if everyone would dress appropriately for the day.


Please remember to log into TTRS regularly; check Abacus for the games that have been assigned to you and read each day.  We will collect reading records in each Monday - please ensure that you have asked an adult to sign it for you.  There are prompts in your records to help you if you are struggling with what to write about your book.  You have also all been given a new Read Theory log in to use too.


We start Tag Rugby coaching on Friday 17th September with Chris Vaale from Bracknell Forest and cross country with In2Sport on Thursdays.  These will be our PE days for this half term.


I am very much looking forward to a 'normal' school year.


Mrs Smith

Dear Parents/Carers,


Please find an information video which has been 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.
