We regularly post updates, reminders and photos of your child’s class and work on here.
Beautiful Britain Topic
Our topic for the first half term is Beautiful Britain. If you have any photos or souvenirs you would like to share about a holiday or a exciting day out it would be really good if you could talk about these experiences with the rest of the class. We are also exploring and looking at our local area and have lots of exciting things planned.
Ask your child about their class dojos. These are points awarded for good behaviour. Sign up for our parent app with a code from your class teacher, so that you can track your child’s dojo online.
Your child will need navy shorts, a white t-shirt and pumps or trainers. No jewellery, including earrings, is permitted for PE. Children need to remove these or cover them with tape. We also require that long hair is tied up for these lessons.
You are more than welcome to send a PE kit into school at the start of each half term and leave it on your child’s peg until the end of the half term if you wish.
It is vitally important that your child reads at home. We believe that this is essential for your child to understand and access all other subjects.
See your child's class teacher for their login details to Rising Stars Reading Planet which will track your child's reading at home.
See your child's class teacher for their login details to our home learning portal on Google Classrooms. Here you will find all of your homework for the week which can be completed online.
We would encourage your child to bring a labelled water bottle to school, so that they can keep hydrated throughout the day.
Pencil Cases etc
We ask that pencil cases and toys not be brought into school. Neither should any other personal belongings unless agreed beforehand with a staff member.
Clothing and Outdoor learning
We are very lucky as a school to have some amazing outdoor spaces to explore and we will be looking to take advantage of this as much as possible. Therefore, please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for outdoor activities i.e. coats and hats when it’s cold and sun cream in the summer months.
Please ensure that all clothing (including school jumpers and cardigans) are named. That way we can return them to you should they get lost.
