Class News

2 Medway worked in groups to create pictograms in their maths lesson. Please see the gallery for pictures.

Lucky the rabbit visited year 4 Tees to help them with their poetry! He was a great inspiration for some lovely poetry.

Year 4 had a wonderful trip to the Chocolate Museum. Even better, this year the gift shop was in operation! I must admit, I was a little jealous when I saw the pictures. Check out the gallery to see for yourself!

Year 6 learnt how to fly this week, when they took part in a science event for their transition to secondary. Mr. Egglestone now has an entire squadron...if you ever need air support from the BAF (Britannica Air Force). See the gallery for pictures!

Pi Day

On March 14 (3.14), Primary celebrated Pi day and all things circular. There were various class activities, including measuring and munching tasty round treats. Thank you to Mrs. Kmetty and the teachers for organising this, and to parents who sent in resources (including treats!) from home.

Check out the gallery for picture(s).

Parents’ Afternoon

Last week, all parents received a letter regarding Parents’ Afternoon and teachers sent out a sign-up sheet. Specialist sign-ups were displayed in reception from Monday. We look forward to celebrating your child’s learning and progress on the 21st March!

Parent Portal

Please do take the time to explore the Parent Portal and all it has to offer for download and also explore the features such as the links, calendar, attendance and so forth.

You can find the parent portal link on the school website homepage.

Class Representative Meeting

Next week, we will have a Class Representative meeting where we will discuss, amongst other things, the Parent Portal. If you have any suggestions or have any points to raise, please let them know before Tuesday so we can discuss it at our meeting.

Learning Walks

Teachers and TAs have been participating in learning walks where they visit each other’s classes and see the lovely learning that is happening. It is a great way to share ideas and good practice. The teachers have been complimentary of each other and are now armed with lots of new ideas to try out in their classes too!

Late Pick Up

Thank you to those of you who have already completed the parent survey for Late Pick Up charges next year. As I wrote in last week’s newsletter, we are exploring developments in the Late Pick Up service which includes a minimal charge for using this service after school and clubs To help us with planning, I would appreciate if you could take approximately 1 minute to take this survey. Thank you for your support.

Concerns and Queries

This is a reminder to parents that if you have any concerns or worries, please contact your child’s teacher. You can find all email addresses under the teacher’s picture on the school website:

The Key Stage Coordinators can also help:,, and of course, I would be happy to help too at

I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend with your families.
