A busy Friday

The children have worked very hard today. Our maths lessons this week have been focussing on both addition and subtraction – the children have worked really hard on this and are doing well. This afternoon in geography we looked at compasses and map symbols and the children drew their own map symbol for places in our local area. After all that hard work it was nice to see some children taking a well earned break in the book corner!

Maths with Parents

Just to flag the next video has been added on maths with parents – number bonds within 10. If you have not yet registered with maths with parents and need any help with this please do send us an email.

Thanks for your support.

Y1 dance moves

We had a lovely day today. Year 1 did some fantastic dancing, including Samba, Bollywood and hip hop moves. This was as part of the school’s fundraising effort for the St Wilfrid’s Centre.

Well done, Year 1, on super dancing, and thank you to parents for your kind donations.


As you may know, tomorrow is Hello Yellow day to celebrate World Mental Health day and the children are encouraged to wear something yellow. If you do not have anything yellow then anything bright will do. This is a non uniform day.

Thank you for your support.

Lost coat

If your child has come home wearing a St Wilfrid’s coat, can you please check the name label to see if it is yours? We think a child may have accidentally taken home a coat belonging to someone else.

Thank you.

Junk modelling materials

From next week (starting 12th October), the class will be making models of playground equipment (swings, slides, etc) in Design and Technology lessons with Mrs Glossop. We would be very grateful for any donations of cardboard, plastic tubs, cereal boxes, kitchen roll tubes, etc, to help us make our models. We will quarantine anything brought in from home before using it so that we know it is safe to use.

Thank you for your support.

Sponsored event on Monday 12th October to raise funds for St Wilfrid’s Centre

Throughout lockdown, St Wilfrid’s Centre has continued to support a large number of vulnerable adults in the community. As a school, we would like to show our support for the Centre on St Wilfrid’s Day, Monday 12th October.

At school, each class will be completing a sponsored event to raise funds. In Y1, we thought we would like to do a sponsored dance in class. If you wish to make a donation to support this, you can do this via parent pay. The item will be called ‘St Wilfrid’s Centre fund raising day’. The St Wilfrid’s Centre will be extremely grateful for any donations.

We will try to take some photos of our fantastic dance moves on the day!

National Poetry Day

We enjoyed some poetry yesterday as it was National poetry day. As well as listening to poetry we learnt a verse of poetry adding our actions and had a go at creating our own silly poetry. The children were very creative.

Maths with Parents

You should have received today information about using Maths with Parents. Our class name is Swift.

A new video has been added for you to watch with your children, with activities to complete together.

Thank you for your support.
