Dear Parents,

Your child is bringing home a new book today. It is for some of the work that is to be done at home. The tasks will be set and explained here on our web page. We hope you have fun engaging with these activities, so look out for the first one on Tuesday!!   yes  laugh  



September 2020. It has been lovely to welcome all our new children to our class. They have been very excited to see their friends again! laugh


Our project this term is "Who's there?"  This is a forest school project looking at creatures and minibeasts that may live there. 


I am now able to let you know that PE will be on a Monday and it is important that the children come to school dressed in their PE kits as they are unable to change in school.


Forest school will be every other Wednesday, from week beginning 21 st. Please can your children bring in labelled wellies and joggers or leggings for this.


I will be sending home the Mathletics logins this Friday, with a small task for the children to do over the week, so they get used to using this programme. I will introduce this on Monday.
