Hi Hornets, 


Well done for settling into year 4 so well this week. It's been great getting to know you all again this year. 


Just a reminder that our PE days are Wednesday and Friday, so you will need to come to school in your PE kit on these days. 


Check out the Marvellous ME site for up to date rewards and achievement too. 


My email for any questions or problems is below. I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.




Hi Everyone, 

I hope you have all had an amazing summer holidays and created memories. I can't wait to see you all in school, it's been so long for some of you, where we can share our thoughts, feelings and memories. 


I will keep posting messages on this part of the school website throughout the year, so keep checking for information, messages and photos and videos. 


See you on Monday Hornets

Ran out of reading books?

You can find a HUGE range of reading books for children aged 3-11 on this website - many the same as we use at school. These are staged to make it easier to choose the correct level, and all are free. All you have to do is set up a parent log in and browse away! 


Bedford libraries are also giving access to a range of online books and audios books through their website.  If you have a library card you are able to use this to access them or you can make an account online.  See -

Quizzing from home guidance for parents

We don’t usually encourage quizzing at home as it can affect test validity, which can result in inconsistent or unrepresentative reading ages. However, due to these exceptional circumstances, you may wish to consider allowing students to quiz at home for a limited period.


This link will take you to our AR portal (which is the same as we use at school):


Ensure that the books you read are:

  • AR quizzed – you can use the Accelerated Reader Bookfinder website to search for a book and see if a quiz is available.
  • Appropriate for the student’s level of ability – more information can be found here.
