We are delighted to have received delivery of a new selection of reading books for the children in Foundation Stage to take home to enjoy reading.  They are lovely books and still have that delightful fresh smell!  We hope you all enjoy sharing these together at home.

Please remember that we are always grateful for any donations of pre-loved books.  So, if you have finished enjoying a book at home, why not send it in to school to add to our bookshelves and for other children to enjoy too?


Tools of the Month

Each month, we will share a tool (or more than one) from our Grammar Toolkit with you.  This toolkit is used across the school to help the children to get to grips with grammar and punctuation.  Remember that some tools are introduced very early in school, and others not until they reach year six.  

Our tool this month is the tape measure and we have a little rhyme to help you this month.


  A noun is the name of a person, place or thing – like Peter in Plymouth or a ball of string.


It can also be used to name abstract things like happiness, love, success and faith.

If you wish to know more, feel free to ask your class teacher.  

For an excellent glossary of all the grammar terms, search the internet for ‘Glossary for the programmes of study for English (non-statutory)’.  This is the document that the government have provided for teachers to use.  If you would like a copy printed to take home, please just ask.
