Welcome to RW! 


I am Ms Withall and I am the class teacher. Your Child will mix across the two classes and work with all the different adults and mix with children from both classes. We hope that this will enrich their learning across the year. We are hoping the children are going to enjoy a fantastic year with us, we will share many of the things we do altogether here on our class page.


It would really help us if you could help your child to remember to bring their book bag, a coat no matter the weather and welly boots.  The children are only allowed water in their drinks bottles in class, we would appreciate your support in this matter. We have PE every Wednesday Morning, so please remember to bring in appropriate PE kit; black shorts, a white t-shirt and plimsolls in the Summer and a tracksuit in the winter. Please encourage your child to practice putting on and taking of clothes at home, so they can have some independence changing for PE.

As a special treat for the children- Panto time!

Bob is back!

Sid has lost Bob, I wonder where he could be?

Well done Bob for remembering to put on an apron before you paint!

What happened to Bob?

Are the elves safe with scissors?

What are the elves up to today?

The elves made a teal arty for themselves and their snowmen friends.

The elves think they have solved the Santa Cam problem, and have settled in to watch a film, 'Father Christmas', on the whiteboard!

Santa installed a Santa Cam to keep an eye on the elves, they don't seem very happy!

The elves are missing Santa's workshop!

A massive 'Well Done!' To all the children from Reception and Nursery on their fantastic performance today!

Getting ready for the Cristmas Play!

Bob and Sid have been up to more mischief in the classroom!

Today the children came in to find the elves had tried to create the Northpole in the classrooms!

The elves took over the timetable today and swapped maths for Dough Disco, much to the children's delight!

We have some visitors in class!

A massive thank you to all the parents who attended our Christmas Stay and Play.The turn out was overwhelming!

Reading books


We hope that you have found your child’s reading book in their book bags and have enjoyed sharing it with your child. The books we have sent home are intended to be books that the children can read independently, demonstrating to you the skills they have been learning at school, and raising their self-belief and confidence.


In previous years we have sent home books to challenge and stretch children, but this can lead to self-doubt and lack of confidence. This new approach is being followed across the school and links with the Read Write Inc. program we are using to teach phonics, reading and writing. We have found that already the children are making amazing progress and we are sure that you will support us with this. Please encourage your child to read as independently as they can, but do support them when they need it, offer them praise when they do well, but please avoid telling them that books are too easy or not appropriate for them as this undermines the whole strategy.


When you read with your child please write in their reading log, ideally we hope you will read five times a week. We will be joining in with the main schools Reading Race, so when your child reads five times at home they will receive a raffle ticket to enter them into the draw. Please make sure that your child brings their book and reading record every day to school. We aim to change them every Wednesday, but on occasion it may be on another day.

Many thanks for your on-going support.
