Classes for September
18 July 2018

We are delighted to share our class structure for next year with you. We hope that your child will be excitied to tell you all about this after spending time in their new classes today, where they had the opportunity to meet their new class teacher and be in their new classroom.

Our Nursery class will be led by Mrs Phillips and we will continue to offer 30 hours. Please register your interest, via the school office, at your earliest convenience as we’re getting close to being full and may need to operate a waiting list.

This year, due to pupil numbers, we have had to operate mixed aged classes in Reception and Key stage 1. Mrs Land, our EYFS Team Leader, will be leading our Reception and Year 1 class. Similarly, due to numbers once again, we are also running a mixed Year 1 and 2 class led by Mrs Hooper, our Key Stage 1 Leader and Maths co-ordinator. We believe that this mixed class structure will enable both teams to meet the needs of individuals, as we have retained a high level of Higher Level Teaching Assistant  (HLTA) and Teaching Assistant (TA) support. In each class, we are committed to ensuring that each child experiences their respective age-appropriate curriculum.

Our Year 3 class is led by Miss Aquilina.

In Year 4, Mrs Iley will continue to teach three days per week and she will be joined by Mrs Shepherd for two days a week, who also teaches at Woodbury Salterton CE Primary.

Miss Etheridge, who is an experienced teacher, will lead in Year 5 and will be supported by Mr Harvey (one day a week) and Mrs Cambridge for literacy support each day. HLTA support will be provided by Mrs Dickinson.

Our Year 6 class will be led by Mr Thomas which will ensure the best possible start to their year 6.

In addition, Mrs Padbury, our Head of Learning, will be covering PPA support in Key Stage 2. Mrs Tweedy remains our SENCo one day a week, supported by Mrs Bradbury, our Assistant SENCo. Mr Nelmes, our Executive Headteacher, will continue to work between both schools.

Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the staff if you have any further questions. We are sure that next year will be another successful one where we continue work in partnership with parents to promote the very best outcomes for the children.

Year 5 and 6 estuary visit
1 July 2018

Years 5 and 6 had a great morning at the estuary. We dug for worms and found lots of lug worms and rag worms. Later, we went shrimping and caught lots of shrimp, hermit crabs, sand eels, gobi fish and crabs. We ended up having a great time sitting in the water, splashing and swimming. Thanks to Steph from Devon Council for running the morning.

 

Thank you PTFA!
29 June 2018

Thank you to the PTFA for all our new books this year in Year 6. We have really enjoyed choosing them and have  managed to choose many books that were only published this year!

Kate Greenaway artwork
29 June 2018

Year 6 looked at the illustrations in the book Night Shift for the Kate Greenaway Award. The illustrator used charcoal as her medium and said that a good place to start was just to have a go at using it and don’t worry about making mistakes. Ben had a go and it was a messy process!

Lucy had a go and ended up creating a very large dragon made up of smaller parts all pieced together like a jigsaw puzzle. The children had a go at drawing some of the pictures from the book. In the book Night Shift anxiety is depicted s a dragon, using charcoal pencils and crayons Amy, Josh and Ellis had a go at some more detailed drawings of different parts of dragons. Colette used sharpies, inks and glitter to show the dragons scales.

 

Sports day success!
25 June 2018

Well done to all the children who took part in our Sports Day. All the children tried their hardest and displayed our values in action. Well done to the Birch group who won the Teamwork Award and Elm who were the overall winners!

Hit the surf
25 June 2018

Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a wonderful day at the beach today. We had fun in the sun before participating in Hit the Surf courtesy of the RNLI. Many thanks to Jason and the other lifeguards for giving the children a great time learning about beach safety and rescue.

Science at ECC
21 June 2018

Year 6 enjoyed a morning at ECC taking part in a Science lesson all about electrical circuits. Mr Farley the science teacher was impressed with how much they already knew and Year 6 had a chance to ask lots of questions about Science and about going to the Community College in September. They all found it very interesting and had a great morning.

Beach football
20 June 2018

The team had a great day out at Exmouth beach, not building sandcastles we hasten to add, but rather running their socks off! Literally for beach football you play in socks. Each match they played was so close, one match even came down to penalties. Highlights included a cracking goal from Thomas from his own half and as for Jamie it was definitely a goal as it DID  cross the line,  it should’ve been counted! Where’s video referee when you need it? Well done team Littleham we’re proud of you.

 

Sports Day 25th June
20 June 2018

You are invited to join us on Monday 25th June for our whole school Sports Day, which will start at 10.00 am and take place on the school field. You are then welcome to stay and have a picnic lunch with the children at 12 o’clock.  The school meal for the children that day will be a bag meal so any child having a school meal will be able to join parents for their picnic.  Following the picnic lunch we have a presentation for teams (approximately 1.30 pm) and parents may wish to take children home directly at the end of Sports Day.  However, we appreciate not all parents will be able to do this and therefore all other children will remain in school as normal.

We recommend that you bring the following:

  • Picnic blanket
  • Drinks for yourself and younger siblings
  • Packed lunch if staying to have lunch with the children
  • Alternatively you are able to purchase drinks and snacks from the PTFA who will be providing refreshments on the day

The children will need to come to school on Monday 25 June in their PE kit and trainers and have had sun cream applied before coming to school. They will also need sun hats and their water bottles.

Our nursery children will also take part in the Sports Day and have their own carousel of activities but will only be up on the field for the first hour. They will then return to the nursery but if parents wish to collect younger siblings and have them stay to watch older children they are welcome to do so. Alternatively, you may take your child home. However, our two year olds will have a session in the nursery class as usual. There is a change to school meals for that day, please note these changes:

  • Option 1 – Burger in a Bun
  • Option 2 – Vegetarian Burger in a Bun
  • Option 3 – Tuna Mayonnaise Sandwich followed by assorted cakes or biscuits
  • All served with potato wedges or pasta
