Letters for Year 6 children will be coming home today for Bikeability
We are waiting on confirmation of the dates but are hoping it will be early November.
Please complete and return the forms by Wednesday 23rd October at the latest
Many thanks for your support.
After half term, I would like to introduce an opportunity for a different parent/grandparent/guardian etc to come into school on a Thursday afternoon at 15:00, to read their favourite story to the children.
We love story time in Class 1 and it is so important to foster a love of reading. I think the children will really enjoy having someone new in to read to them every Thursday.
I have stuck a sign up sheet in the entrance porch to class 1, so please feel free to put your name down for a session. Any relative is welcome, should a parent not be able to attend. All I ask is that you bring your favourite book with you.
I hope to see lots of people signing up!
This year we will be having a Spooky Story evening for all the children here at Crudgington School.
The children are invited back into school at 6.15pm onwards
They are able to wear their Halloween costumes if they would like.
Teachers and support staff will collect the children from the hall at 6.20 and take them back to their classes for a ‘spooky story’ and some Halloween fun.
The children will then come back down to the hall at 6.55pm where they will be able to go – with their parents/carers out into the school car park where the Friends committee have arranged a Trunk or Treat event – this is where people decorate their boots of their cars with Halloween tricks and treats ( we had some fabulous entries last year) and all of the children can go around and do trick or treat at the cars.
If you would like your child to attend please return the forms being sent home today by Monday 21st October at the latest so staff can plan their event.
If you would like to attend the Friends event Trick or Trunk to decorate your car boot this needs to be booked via the Friends Facebook page or contact one of the committee by the end of this week. There is no cost to this, just be as imaginative as you would like with your decorations of your car! There are limited spaces available.
Parking will be at The Lion in Waters Upton – there will be no parking in the car park with the exception of staff and those with pre-booked spaces to decorate their cars. Please do not try to park in the car park as for Health and Safety reasons this will not be permitted.
We hope as many of the children as possible will attend this event.
There will be refreshments on sale in the staff room/hall for the adults whilst the children are in their spooky story time between 6.15 and 7.00pm.
Spellings to be tested on Friday 18th October 2019

Year 1: once, are, was, you, our, ask, they, where, there, said.
Class 2 had a lovely afternoon exploring the school grounds for microhabitats and their inhabitants. We found lots of different minibeasts living in our schools. We even managed to find a field mouse!
Children are really enjoying being immersed in our new topic based around World War 2, Bombs Away! So far, they have learnt about life as a child and evacuee during the war, rationing and life on the Home Front.
This topic has really engaged lots of the class, many of whom have completed additional research, at home, using the local libraries and museums at Sleap airfield and RAF Cosford. We are also looking forward to visiting Coventry next month, when we will learn about Coventry and The Blitz.
To support further topic learning, here is a list of websites which will help to deepen both knowledge and understanding of life during World War 2.
As the children are currently having PE lessons outdoors, please could you send in a plastic bag, which your child will then be able to keep their muddy shoes in after a PE session. This will help keep their PE clothes clean.
The children are very enthusiastic with their learning about Titanic. Here are some webpages that may support your child’s learning at home.
In class 1, we will be looking at the signs of Autumn. If anybody has collected lots of conkers, different coloured leaves or big leaf maple helicopters etc, or if you would like to collect these items for us over the weekend, then donations of these would be greatly appreciated next week. Please drop them into Class 1.
Welcome to the start of a new school year. Your children have settled in well and I hope they have enjoyed their first few days in school. For those of you who are new to the school, just a few reminders about expectations:
- Please only send water in your child’s water bottle, unless your child has a medical reason for drinking juice. If this is the case, just let me know.
- We offer a fruit snack everyday in school, however if you would like to send your child in with their own snack, please stick to healthy options such as fruit or vegetables only.
- If you haven’t already, please send in your child’s PE kit and wellies. Wellies can be put straight on the wellie rack outside of class 1.
Due to vandalism over the Summer holiday, the Forest School area is currently out of bounds. Until the area has been cleared, Forest School won’t be going ahead and I will run a PE session every other Wednesday instead. I will let parents know when Forest School clothes are needed.
Also, after drop of tomorrow morning, the Friends of Crudgington Group are holding a coffee morning in the school staff room. Feel free to pop along. You will receive a warm welcome and I know the Friends group would love to welcome some new members.
If you need to ask anything,please feel free to grab me for a chat in the mornings or after school.
