There is a local Charity, run by mums in Shrewsbury, called Bags of Kindness. They can provide school shoes, trainers and toddler shoes to parents. They are second hand shoes in very good condition, with lots of life left, that have been donated at various shoe shops around town. Parents can message Bags of Kindness on their Facebook page or use the link below. Please state the type of shoe/trainer you require and the size.
The poster says it all… we had a fabulous “Mexican Day” on Thursday but we were all shattered on Friday! Thank you for helping to dress your children in the colours of the Mexican flag – they looked incredibly colourful – we have some great photos! Watch this space for the pic collages the children have made to advertise the day. The children enjoyed making Chili Con Carnie, sour cream dip and salsa which was then followed by doughnuts dipped in chocolate, cinnamon and sugar and finally a drink of pineapple, orange and lemon juice. I hope the children will share their new skills and help you out when it comes to peeling and chopping salads and vegetables over the coming weeks. They also completed some sensational pieces of art work which will be displayed in the classroom – well done to Mya, you received the Golden Certificate for your stunning pic collage!
As a lead into our science next term we collected the seeds from the peppers and the chilies and the stones from the avocado, next week we hope to plant them. We also have some marigolds to plant to cheer up the area outside our classroom.
We will continue to work on decimals in maths and complete our posters in literacy. The guided reading groups are working well. No spellings this week but watch this space next week.
Thank you for completing the parent evening slips: you will receive an email next week with your TEAMS time slot. We have tried our very best with the times we have allocated you – it will be a new experience for us all keeping to allocated times.
We hope you all have a super Bank Holiday weekend. If the weather falls cold reading together as a family is a real treat. Stay safe and enjoy the extra day at home.

The following statement has been issued by Ian Bartlett, Shropshire Councils Crime Prevention Officer today and we have been asked to pass the information onto parents.
Parents/carers may be aware of coverage on social media regarding a potential issue at the Quarry, Shrewsbury this afternoon/evening. The Police are fully aware and will be taking a robust approach. If you have any information that you can pass to the Police, please contact the Police using 101.
Please click on the two links below for information regarding the application process for secondary school transport from September 2021.
School Class photos will take place on Tuesday 4th May. All children must wear School uniform on this day. If they have PE or After School Club on that day, then they will be able to take part in their uniform.
We have had a super four days back this week. The children have completed their quest story books. We will continue learning about decimals in our math lessons next week. Our spellings for this week can be found on the spellings site but the children have all been given a paper copy too.
We are all super excited to start our theme for the Summer Term next week! I am sure you have guessed by the flag above and the letter the children have brought home this afternoon that our theme is …
“Around The World in Eighty Days… Mexico!”
To launch our theme we are holding a Mexican Day next Thursday. We would like the children to dress up in red, green or white clothing or all three colours. Please do not buy anything special – we have sombreros at school and false moustaches too!
We have many other exciting things planned for the rest of the term. Our thematic overview will be placed on this page next week for you to see.
Please, please continue to read with your child at home and make a record in their reading diaries. We have spent a long time this week looking at the reading assessment results and organising some super guided reading tasks ready for the coming weeks.
The children need to continue to to learn their times tables. We will be setting some times tables homework in the coming weeks – we will post each task on the homework page and also give each child a hard copy.
Meanwhile, enjoy the lovely weather. I hope hay fever does not get in the way for some of you.
Mrs.P, Miss Allison, Mrs Smith and Ms Nicholas.
It was great to welcome you all back to school on Tuesday. Hopefully, we are getting nearer to further restrictions being lifted. We have lots of great learning planned for this term whilst we learn about India.
The children have been working really hard to remember everything they have learnt so far this year. We have been doing lots of revision, especially with their times tables and speedy recall of number facts. They are all being very successful at using the column method to add two digit numbers but they are slowed down by their fluency when adding the two single digit numbers in each column – this needs lots of quick fire practise. Here is an example of how we do column addition and subtraction in Year 2. Please ask your child to show you!
All the children in Elm Class have had a go at logging onto their own email account and exploring some of the features. Most can send an email and reply. They have all had lots of reminders about how to stay safe online and how to be kind. They all know the rules!
I will be setting them all a challenge to complete through their email and there will be rewards for those who have a go! Please help them to access their email account at home safely. Every email that they send, will automatically go to Miss Cave for authorisation. All the children know this.
Just a little reminder about a few points:
- PE kit to be worn to school on a Tuesday
- Book bags with reading books need to be in school EVERY day
- Water bottles must not be carried in their book bags – we have had a few leakages!
If you have any questions, you can still contact me through the class email address email@example.com. This is also the address that your child has been sending messages to. They picked it up really quickly!
Have a great weekend,
Mrs Dowell and Mrs Armstrong
This week has been very busy and all the children have settled back into school well. Our topic this term is Indian Spice, we have been learning where India is and asking questions about the country and its people. Today we had an Indian banquet. We tasted lots of different Indian foods. The photos are on tapestry for you to see. In maths we are learning about multiplication and division. This week we have been counting in 2, 5 and 10. I have emailed the children a short quiz for them to complete and return, please help your child to access the quiz but answer for themselves.
Now that the weather is becoming warmer please send a hat into school for play time and put sun cream on before coming to school. Children can bring sun cream into school, but must be able to apply it themselves.
Enjoy the weekend
Please see the letter below from the Headteacher.
