World Book Day! 3rd March 2022

This year, we are bringing back the fun of World Book Day!

On Thursday 3rd March 2022, children are encouraged to come to School dressed as a character from a book. It can be their favourite character in the whole world, someone from their favourite book or a character from the book they are currently reading at home or at School. They can even just wear their pyjamas and bring in their favourite bedtime story. The important part is to share our passion for reading.

The little ones can tell us a bit about their character and the older children can read a bit of their book to their class, if they wish.

The teachers will plan a day of themed activities and it should be a wonderful day!

Positive Cases – Tiger, Rhino & Jaguar Classes

FAO Parents/Carers of Tiger, Rhino & Jaguar Class 

We have been made aware that we have a confirmed positive cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Tiger, Rhino & Jaguar Classes at Myddle Primary School.

We have followed the national guidance and have identified that your child has been in close contact with the affected person.  In line with the national guidance, your child does not need to self-isolate but we strongly advise that they take a rapid lateral flow device (LFD) test every day for 7 days. If any of these LFD tests are positive they should immediately self-isolate.

If your child develops any of the main COVID-19 symptoms, or any of the precautionary symptoms associated with COVID-19, they must take a PCR test and remain off school until a negative result has been received.

If you have any questions, please contact the school office.  Thank you.

Tiger Class – Positive LFD Result

We’’ve been made aware of a positive LFT result in Tiger class. We are awaiting results of the pcr test and will update you more when we can. In the meantime, we strongly recommend lateral flow testing your child, daily from today, for the next 7 days to try to prevent the spread. This decision follows the updated government guidance received today for close contacts.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact school on 01939 290834.

Tiger Class Autumn Term Letter

Curriculum letter – Tiger Class – Autumn 2021

We have started our new Topic (Feelings) and have issued the homework books and reading records to all children.

We have also sent home a copy of our termly Class letter (see link).

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us via Class Dojo.

Welcome back to School!

Welcome back to School! I hope you have had a restful Summer break.

The Autumn Term is usually very busy and productive, and this should be a great one.

First of all, if you have not yet signed up to our Class Dojo page, please do so as soon as possible, as this will be the easiest way for us to communicate regularly. All children were given login codes during transition day, in July, but if you have misplaced your letter, do not worry, as another copy will be sent home to those who are yet to connect in the next few days.

We have already published an important update to Class Dojo today, so make sure to check it out.

A termly class letter will be also circulated next week, but please see below for some key information you might find useful:

Homework books will be issued early next week and are due back each Monday.  Reading books and Reading Records will also be sent home as soon as possible and should be brought to School every day, so these can be regularly checked and books changed.

Our weekly tests (times tables and spellings) will take place on Mondays. Weekly spelling lists will be sent home for children to practise in their homework books, and also published as an online “assignment” on Spelling Shed. For the Times Tables test, children will progress at their own pace. Everyone starts at 10x table and will be informed when they have progressed to the next level. Year 3 children will continue from where they were at the end of Y2. All children will be given a weekly times table homework activity related to their next test and well as assignments on Maths Shed to practise. Login details for Ed Shed (which includes Spelling Shed and Maths Shed) can be found inside the Homework Books.

PE sessions will take place on a Wednesday and Friday and children are expected to come to school wearing their PE kits. Our PE sessions will start next week. 

During the first half-term, we will also have Forest School sessions on Tuesdays, when children should come to School wearing suitable clothing for these sessions.

It is generally recommended that your child should be heard reading at least 3 times a week but, for our age group, ideally this would be done daily. This is the most important part of their homework, as reading successfully is essential for the children to access the rest of the curriculum. Listening to your child read is important to support the development of their decoding skills and well as build fluency and expression in their reading. It is also great to share a book together and your child will still love to hear you read to them.

I hope this information is useful. Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Mrs Crowe
