We are truly grateful for all of your uniform donations. Every night Mrs Nightingale restocks the clothes line and they are selling fast.

In assembly, we have discussed with the children about how cool it is to reuse and recycle- we hope that the school uniform shop will send out a clear message that they can make a difference to the world we live in.

Thank you,
The St Alban’s Eco Warriors!

Parent Reading Meeting

By Community, English, FS1, FS2, News, Reading, Year 1, Year 2

Dear Parents and Carers,

I would like to express my gratitude to all the parents who attended our reading parents meeting this afternoon. It was wonderful to see such a strong turnout. During the session, we discussed the essential techniques for effectively listening to children read using RWInc books.

Today, I will share the notes from the meeting on Class Dojo, which include video links to further support your understanding.  If you have any questions or require additional guidance, approach myself, Mrs. Whyman, or your child’s class teacher. We are all highly knowledgeable in the field of reading and are here to assist you.

For those who were unable to attend this meeting, please note that we will be rescheduling it during the Autumn Term. We believe this information is crucial for your involvement in your child’s reading progress, and we want to ensure that every parent has the opportunity to benefit from this session.

Warm regards,

Mrs Gurner

Doubling in Reception

By FS2, Maths

Today, Reception Class really enjoyed having fun with doubling.  First, we warmed up by counting forwards and backwards and then subitising. (Subitising means we don’t count we say the amount!)

Then we played a doubling game with dice.  Double 3 is 6.

We had lots of fun carrying on our doubling to practice our skills independently.

A HUGE thank you from the PTA

By Community, English, FS1, FS2, Fund Raising, Letters to Parents, PTA, Year 1, Year 2

We have some exciting news to share with you this week! Thanks to your incredible support at PTA events, we have received Toni’s, wonderful listening stations, for our nursery, reception, and year 1 and 2 classrooms. These listening stations will provide our students with the opportunity to enjoy their favourite stories during wet plays or quiet reading time.


We extend our deepest gratitude to all the parents who have contributed to the PTA events, making it possible for us to acquire these valuable resources. On behalf of the children, we want to say a heartfelt THANK YOU for your generous support.


We are thrilled to share that we are currently in the process of designing a new outside quiet area for our KS2 students. The PTA has graciously agreed to fund this project, which will provide a serene and comfortable space for our older students to relax and engage in quiet activities.
