New books!

Dear Parents/ Carers,

A little while ago we held our annual book fair. From the books that were bought, our school gained reward points that we were able to spend on brand new books for the whole school. The children spent time in class, selecting the texts that they would like to read. A very exciting delivery came this week! Here is just a small selection.

Thank you to all of our families who have made this possible. We know the children are extremely excited to get reading!

Behaviour Expectations

We are all here to celebrate all our wonder children’s sporting success and ask that you ensure that you are celebrating with each child as they follow our school vision at working at everything with all their heart. We would also kindly ask that any younger siblings are supervised at all times (avoiding running on tracks). 

Smoking and Vaping

Can we remind you that John Fletcher of Madeley is a smoke free zone, this incudes vaping. We politely ask that this happens off site, away from school grounds.

Fire Alarm

In the event that a fire bell should go off, please allow the adults to deal with the children in line with our Fire Safety Procedures. Assemble at the top end of the field, by the forest, in an orderly manner and await instructions from members of SLT. At no point should you attempt to enter the building.


Children are not allowed fizzy drinks or energy drinks.

Photographs and Phones

We have some vulnerable children who are strictly forbidden to have their photographs taken for child protection and other reasons.  No phones are allowed to be used in our school site, please.

Family Picnic

One of the highlights of our Sports Day is the opportunity for families to have a picnic on the school grounds together. All the pupils will join you on the field at 12:15pm and return to the class at 1pm to facilitate playtimes, registration and preparation for the afternoon events. At 1pm pupils will be brought in their classes to the areas and will return here at the end of the picnic.

Although we appreciate some parents may have children in various year groups, we are going to have designated areas that you can sit in to ensure that you have enough space for your picnic. This map should help.  You can choose the most appropriate place for your family group, if you have more than one child.

We look forward to seeing you all on Friday 28th June.


Best wishes,

Year 3 Newsletter- 24.05.24

Year 3 have had an excellent week!

In maths, we have been learning to add and subtract fractions. We are also practising our times tables each day and working on our division facts.

In English, we finished off our play scripts. We practised in small groups then acted them out to the class.  We used the script from the Egyptian Cinderella that we have been learning in our reading sessions.

In science we looked at the eye and the damages the sun can cause. We then designed our posters about keeping our eyes protected in the sun.

In History we looked at ancient civilisation and made a timeline to show how far back the Egyptians were.

Have a lovely half term (we hope the sun makes an appearance), see you on Tuesday 4th June.

Miss Azzopardi and Mr Baker.

KS2 Healthy Snack Reminder

Dear KS2 Families,

As part of our ongoing commitment to promoting healthy eating habits among our children, we encourage them to bring a snack to enjoy during break. We ask that these snacks be limited to healthy options such as fruits and vegetables. Ideal choices include apples, carrots, celery sticks, bananas, and other similar nutritious snacks. These foods not only provide essential vitamins and minerals but also help maintain energy levels and concentration throughout the school day.

Please avoid sending snacks that are high in sugar, fat, or salt. Examples of such snacks include sweets, chocolate bars, crisps, and sugary drinks. By providing healthy snacks, we can work together to foster better eating habits that will benefit our children both now and in the future.

Thank you for your cooperation and support.

Kind regards

John Fletcher of Madeley Primary School.

Spare Clothes

Dear Parents,

As you know, accidents can happen unexpectedly, especially among our younger children during the school day and there are times when a spare change of clothing becomes necessary.

With this in mind, we kindly request your support in donating spare underwear, socks, pants, tights, shorts, and trousers. If you can donate any plastic carrier bags that we can put wet/soiled clothing in, we would really appreciate it.

These items would greatly assist us in promptly addressing any accidents that may occur, allowing our children to quickly return to their daily activities without discomfort or embarrassment.

Please note that at this time, we are specifically seeking donations of spare clothing items listed above. While we appreciate any offers of assistance, we currently do not require donations of school jumpers/cardigans/hoodies and t-shirts.

If you can contribute, please drop off your donations at the school office during school hours.

If your child is prone to accidents, we ask that they always have a spare change of clothing available in their school bags.

Thankyou in advance
