Dear Parents and Carers


Another busy week at Stoke. 


Nursery have been out at the front of school gardening and putting new plants in the borders.  We also have the new tree the Year 1 children helped plant, giving them the chance to look at the different parts, including the roots before they covered them over.


Our Year 2 children have been on adventures to Warwick Castle, exploring the different parts of the castle using the knowledge and vocabulary they have gained in class.  Back in school they have used this adventure to support their ongoing work.


Our Year 6 children have also been out and about visiting the Black Country Living Museum this week as part of their Incredible Inventions topic.  The children explored all aspects from games to mining systems.

For all our trips and adventures, please look at the Gallery on the school website where you will see the photos from the different experiences.  Gallery | Stoke Primary School


We hope you have all had the opportunity to speak with your child’s teacher and have a good understanding of their next learning steps in reading, writing and maths.  A big thank you to our Coventry Young Ambassadors who helped meet and greet.  Thank you to everyone who filled in the questionnaire. 

We will summarise the outcome of this and share a summary report for you as soon as we are back after Easter.


I have spoken to several parents about our collection time.  We have been maintaining collection at the gate as many schools have continued to be hard hit by Covid absence which has affected lessons in school.  We are in the process of reviewing this for after Easter.  As soon as we have more information, we will share it with you.  Thank you for your continued patience.


We have recently had a number of issues with children playing Truth or Dare games in school.  Many of these have ended up in children acting in unacceptable ways or causing upset to their friends.  If you hear you children talking about this type of game at home, please explain that it is not a good game to be playing and often causes problems.


Thank you for your continued support


Yours Sincerely

Mathew Ascroft
