Welcome to the Spring Term!


This term we will be studying Felixstowe as our topic. We will be visiting places of interest, and we will be inviting speakers in to school to tell us about the history of the town.

If you have any old photographs of Felixstowe that you would like to share, please send them in to school and we will photocopy them.

Class Assemblies and Activity Mornings

We will be holding a class assembly on Thursday 25th March at 9.10 am. Please join us if you can, for the assembly and for activities in the classroom afterwards.


Children are expected to read 5 times a week, and they all have a bookmark that they can record on. An adult needs to sign the bookmark each time your child finishes a book so that reading records can be updated regularly.

Each week the children will be sent home with a spelling list to learn. Children will be expected to write each word in a complete sentence. The books will be collected in each Monday, and new words will be sent home.

We would also ask you to help and encourage your child to learn their times tables to help with multiplication and division work this term.


This term PE will be on Monday mornings and Friday afternoons.  Please ensure that children have their PE kits in school at all times as extra PE lessons are often added to our weekly timetables. Please make sure that your child can take their earrings out if they have pierced ears.

Forest School

All year 3 and 4 children will have a chance to join in with Forest Schools activities this year. More information will follow when it is your child’s turn.


Please sign up to Seesaw so that you can see what your child is learning in school. If you are having trouble signing up, please contact me via the school office.

Making contact

I will be at the canteen door every day after school for an exchange of information if needed. If you would like more time to talk, please let me know and I will arrange a time with you.

Thank you for your continued support!

Mrs Garstang and Mrs Gifford
