Regular reading is so important for your child’s well-being as well as their success in school.  Reading for pleasure is a great passion of mine and I aim to enjoy many stories this year with Newtown.  Your child will have Reading Journal and I would like you to actively be involved with your child’s reading for at least 3 times a week.  This can take many forms for example –

  • Listening to them read their current reading book.
  • Reading to them (I often take it in turns to read a page/paragraph each to encourage them if they’re reluctant)
  • Reading other things at home e.g. recipes, magazines, comics, websites.
  • Listening to an audio book.

As your children become more independent in their reading they will enjoy reading to themselves, this can also be logged in their Reading Record.  It would help Mrs Lockey and myself if when signing the record to note down whether it was independent reading or with an adult. (A quick (I) will be fine) Your children can neatly write in their own records if they wish before you sign it.

Times Tables

Please support your child in becoming confident in their times tables.  It helps them so much in all aspects of their maths work.  I am more than happy to provide any resources for home if you’d like them. 


For the Autumn Term, our PE day will be a Friday.  Newtown class should come into school wearing their PE kits.  Please make sure that earrings are removed on this day, however, newly pierced ears can be taped. 


Please do contact me if you have any worries or concerns however small! As a mum to three children myself I know that it’s often the little things that cause the biggest stress!  Please come and see me or phone the office and I’ll be in touch as soon as I can.  Mrs Lockey and I are very much looking forward to working with you.          



Home Learning

Home Learning will be set on a Monday and be due in the following Monday. 

New spellings will be started on a Monday with activities throughout the week. 


 it would be good if you could continue with learning from home or if you wish to support your child's learning at home, then please find below some links to websites that will allow your child to practice and reinforce what they are doing in school.
