Week 1

Welcome Hedgehogs!


The children have been a delight so far! They are enjoying seeing old friends and making new ones and exploring all the learning on offer. We are looking forward to a fantastic first term!


I have added a few documents for your information below.

Phonics: I will be adding some information about our current phonics learning by the end of this week so you can see what the children are getting up to.

Reading: I have given all children a reading book now and a yellow Reading Diary. Please use the diary to give me feedback on how they got on with the book, after you have shared it at home. Each child needs a book bag in school every day so we can easily change books or read with them. These are kept in three boxes just inside the classroom for easy access, so they are all in one place. 


We have sent 'Home Learning Books' today for anyone who wishes to start trying out a task from the class home learning grid. These are in book bags. 


Forest School will start next Friday (17th). Please ensure your child is well dressed for whatever the weather brings! They will need arms and legs covered to protect them from stinging nettles and scratches from overhanging branches / twigs. Girls can wear leggings under dresses / skirts or long trousers. Boys will need trousers and not shorts please. Spare socks can be useful in case we get wet feet. ALL children MUST HAVE a coat and waterproofs / wellies every day but especially in time for Forest School on Friday.
