Junk Modelling

We always need junk modelling for everyday art provision so keep bringing it in. I will happily take your recycling every week 🙂

Smaller containers are often more suitable as the children can stick them together to create things.

PE kit for sports day…

All PE kits has been sent home today as children will need to come into school wearing their PE clothes on Friday as it is sports day. Please ensure they also bring in a water bottle if they do not already have one in class.

Sports Day is taking place on Friday at the Rosendale Road Playing Field.  A reminder of the timings:

  • The Early Years and KS1 races commence at 10am,
  • KS2 children will arrive at the field for a picnic lunch at 12 noon,
  • KS2 races commence at 1pm.

A reminder that everyone is having a picnic lunch on the field.  All reception children will be provided a packed lunch. We really hope that you are able to join us at the field.

Parents and carers are welcome to take their children home straight from the field however you must sign your child out with me first.

Sports day on Friday!

On Friday it is Sports day. The races start at 10am and all parents, grandparents, family friends are welcome. We will be finished by around 11.30am and then you and your child can have a picnic lunch at the field. All the children will be provided with a packed lunch as usual.

After lunch, you are more than welcome to take your child home. Please make sure that you first sign them out with me. I will have a register and will cross them off and give you a sticker to indicate your child is your responsibility. If you are unable to take your child, they will come back to school to relax and we usually spend the afternoon watching a film.

I hope to see you there on Friday morning. There is a parents race also so come prepared! 🙂

Call for authors & illustrators!!

During the next academic year, we will be working with Elmgreen on creating The Great North Wood Education Trust Literature Festival (think of the Hay Festival)!!

We are looking for Authors, Illustrators, Publishers and Story tellers who would be willing to come into school to run workshops and speak in assemblies.

If you are able to help, or know someone who would like to participate in the festival please contact Sarah Tyler. Librarybus@rosendale.cc

RSL Superheroes!

Its been another fabulous week in RSL. We continued our topic on superheroes and this week came up with our own superhero characters and made costumes! Here is a little video of the superheroes in RSL…

In maths we have been learning about positional language and our lefts and rights. We have directed our partners along lines and had a go at programming the directions for beebots around a maze.

In phonics we have been reviewing consonant clusters which are often tricky to identify in our writing.


Have a great weekend in the sun!






Please remember to send children in with a sun hat and sun cream on. I have a box by the sink for any sun cream that you wish to send in with your child. Please make sure that all items are labelled with your child’s name and class.

I would also like to remind you that children should not be wearing open toe sandals in school. Crocs are fine.
