Autumn Term News Letters

Friday 2nd November


What a fantastic first week we have had! We started the week with a visit from Mr Wood and Mr Murphy to learn all about Bill Naughton which was extremely interesting. We have been looking at number involving multiplication and division in maths this week to brush up on our methods. To end our week, we have completed our Class Assembly which we thoroughly enjoyed and hope you did to! Thank you to everyone who came.

Next week, we are starting the week with a visit from the Music Service to kick start our Arts Award journey where we will be having a Gamalan workshop.

We also have Diwali day on Wednesday - don't forget to wear something bright or if you have some traditional clothing that would be brilliant.

Children have been given a piece of homework this week along with their spellings to refresh themselves on the column method of addition and subtraction. This needs to be completed and brought back to school by Thursday as we will be going through it together in Maths.


Thank you for your continued support,


Miss Sewart and the Ringgold Team.

This week in Ringgold we have been focusing on a new topic of statistics in Maths, the children have been working very hard. In English we have been working on reading comprehension and inference. We have started to look at Jasper Johns in art and we have been evaluating his art work.

Open Day- On Tuesday 16th October we are holding an open day and school will be open to all at different times throughout the day. In Ringgold we will be singing in class at 9:50am, 10:50am and 1:40pm make sure you come and say hello.

Home learning- The children will be tested randomly on their spellings they have learnt so far to make sure they are retaining them. There will be no new spellings to learn this week but revision of the previous weeks.

Netball- well done to all of the children who took part in Netball, you were great representatives of our school.


Thanks for your continued support,

Ringgold team.

This week we have been working hard developing our comprehension skills in English and becoming more confident with a range of methods in Maths. The children have started to work with Sam who will be completing their spray paint art with them, to design their products and the children will be starting to spray as of next week. (The designs look amazing!)


On Wednesday (10th October) it is our Harvest celebration day and we would like to welcome you all to come and celebrate this time of year with us. 3pm in the school hall.


The children who took part in Yoga yesterday really enjoyed it and the other half of the class with be having their first session next Thursday.


Spellings have been handed out to the children so please can these be practised at home ready for our spelling quiz on Thursday next week.


Thanks for your continued support,

Another fab week has been had in Ringgold class. We have been doing lots of descriptive writing this week which has developed and improved dramatically!

Next week we will be starting our space, spray paint projects with Sam who will be visiting us on a weekly basis to complete this work.

The children will also be starting Yoga sessions on a Thursday as of next week. This will take place during lunch time and will be half of the class at a time. Children need to make sure PE kits are in on this day.

ART: Anyone with any polystyrene sheets at home that can be donated for our art work (printing) would be extremely appreciated - could this be brought into school by Thursday.

Again just a reminder for children to be practicing spellings, times tables and reading on a regular basis!


Thank You,

The Ringgold Team!

Wev've had another great week, children have been sent home with their spellings for this week and will be tested on them on Thursday as discussed in the meeting last night.


It was lovely to see so many parents at the Meet the Teacher Evening last night. I hope that you found the evening helpful and had some of your questions answered. Those who did not attend, I have sent home letter with your children; one regarding PGL and another regarding GDPR please could the GDPR letter be signed and back in school for Monday as it is very important that all children have this form signed ASAP.


The book fair is in school next week and you are welcome to come and visit during our classes slot on Thursday morning. otherwise the book fair will be open to parents and carers some mornings before school and after school.


Thanks for your continued support,
