If you are a parent or carer you can join our private Facebook group - 

We use Microsoft Teams and weekly spellings are saved in files on there as well as paper copies sent home. Should children be at home due to isolation and they are well, we will call you so that you can take part in the lesson virtually.

If you have any questions please do contact school or email Mrs Wright at or Mrs Armitage at 


Our Class Books for the Year

Each morning until 9:15am the children will listen to our class book  to promote a love of reading. The selection can be seen below. It offers a variety of themes and text types and in some instances links to our afternoon themes.  We have written a letters to David Almond (we haven't had a reply yet), Lindsay Galvin (who was quick to reply), Louis Sacher (we contacted him via an online form and are awaiting a reply) and Sophie Anderson.
