End of half-term message

Can’t believe we have finished the first half-term! We are so very proud of all the children in Housman Class and how well they have settled. We really didn’t know how the children would be on their return to school in September but we have quickly become ‘Team Housman’ with every child and staff member playing their part. We have hit the ground running with their learning whilst also supporting their social and emotional needs.

The children (and staff!) are certainly feeling tired and are ready for the break but we look forward to returning in November- fully recharged!

A BIG thank you to you all for the support you have shown.

Mrs Brotherhood and Mrs Vaughan


We continue to be so impressed with the behaviour and attitude of all the children in Housman class.

The children have been busy making bunting to display at our local church showing all the things they are grateful for.

Weekly update 11.9.20

Housman class have had a great first full week back! We are so impressed with their behaviour and attitude towards their learning.

We ended the week with an outdoor adventure session in our conservation area. The children built dens, made bridges, created animal homes and showed their fantastic team working skills. We plan to use the conservation area each Friday afternoon so it might be a good idea if they can bring some clothes in that you don’t mind them getting dirty.

A brilliant end to the week!

Enjoy your weekend!

First Day

The children have been excellent today. There has been lots of information to take in regarding new procedures and we will keep reminding the children if they are at all unsure (it will take time!). Please can children ensure they have full PE kit, named water bottle, healthy snack, coat and change of shoes for the field. 

Thank you very much for your cooperation!

End of year message!

Dear all,

It’s officially the ‘end’ of this academic year and what a year it has been! I don’t think any of us could have anticipated that homeschooling would have gone on for so long and we are so grateful for the support you have provided for your children during this time. We know many of you have had to juggle the demands of work, managing siblings of different ages and abilities along with your own worries during this time so THANK YOU!

We are preparing for September and are looking forward to having the children back. We will spend time assessing the pupils needs, ensure appropriate provision is in place and support their social and emotional development.

Thank you once again,

Mrs Brotherhood and Mrs Vaughan


Final Week

Well, we can’t quite believe it’s officially the final week of home learning. It’s been quite a ‘journey’ and we are very grateful to each of you who have managed to keep going in what has been a challenging time. We know it hasn’t been easy but we also hope that you have had some positive experiences amongst the madness! Take some time to reflect over the last few months- what has gone well? What have you learnt about each other? What have been the challenges? How have you overcome them?

In terms of work this week, you may continue with the BBC Bitesize which I know has been a great help over the weeks. The websites that I have mentioned in previous posts are also excellent so take a look at them. If you have run out of steam then just try and continue with the reading…..little and often is fine! We are always happy to speak with you on an individual basis so please do e-mail on

We are busy making plans for September and will send further information out over the coming days.

Thank you once again for your continued support and patience- it has been appreciated!

Mrs Brotherhood and Mrs Vaughan




Hello everybody,

Hope you are all well. At this time of year in school, we would usually have our annual Talent Show. You could take this week to perfect a talent you have, maybe it’s learning a dance routine, a song, a comedy act, juggling? Send a video of your act- we would love to see it.

BBC Bitesize have their schedule. We’re in the penultimate week now so the end is in sight for the home schooling- you have done brilliantly and we do appreciate your efforts and also how hard it has been at times ( hopefully there have been lots of positives too). We have enjoyed catching up with some pupils on the phone so please get in touch if you want a call or any advice-

Week Beginning 29.6.20

Hello everybody,

BBC Bitesize have their schedule for the week ahead so please take a look.

Feedback from some parents is that the home schooling is becoming more challenging and children running out of steam. This is to be expected (it’s been a long haul!) so please remember that little and often is absolutely fine. Keep going with the reading and those times tables if you can. We are very happy to advise on an individual basis so do get in touch if you need to-
