Welcome Back

I hope you’ve all had a restful Christmas and are ready for this term’s learning.

A polite reminder: could you make sure your child(ren)’s water bottle is full at the beginning of the school day; if you need to email/contact your class teacher, could you please email the office, who will forward the message on.


At 8 am, three lessons will be uploaded to the Seesaw platform. These lessons will include a maths, English and foundation one. Additionally, starting from next week (11th January) there will be a series of Zoom lessons details as well as a weekly timetable emailed to parents/carers.

A weekly video explaining any methods or common misconceptions can be found below for mathematics lessons (at the bottom of the webpage).

A Reminder


Every week, someone in each class will receive a TT Rockstar trophy, so make sure you’re practising your timetables skills!

A reminder to all parents and carers: please encourage your children to use the TTRockstar App as much as possible; just 10 minutes a day can have an impact on their times table knowledge. If there are any problems with the app or you have misplaced a log-in, please let your class teacher know! Maybe this term your child’s class will win the cup!

RRS Year 5 – All of year 5 have signed class charters at the beginning of the year to agree on how our rights will be respected by pupils and adults throughout the school.

The main articles that we felt were appropriate for our class setting were: 12, 13, 14, 24, 28, 29, 30 and 31.
