Jubilee Celebrations - Friday 27th May
This year Her Majesty the Queen becomes the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. On Friday 27th May 2022, we plan to hold a special Whole School Street Party/picnic on the field (weather permitting). The children will make bunting, flags and decorations for the tables in their classes during the week as well as other Jubilee activities. Party food will be provided, details to follow nearer the time. In addition, each year group will dress in clothes linked to an allocated decade.
EYFS - 2010/2020-s – or your best party clothes!
You can find more information about school lunches on our school website.
Please order your child's lunch a week before using the 'SCHOOL GATEWAY' App.
Please note: Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 cannot bring a lunch in from home.
Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for all weather - especially for upcoming summer weather.
In Reception, we value the learning that happens inside and outside of the classroom and enjoy all seasons.
Please ensure all items of clothing are clearly labelled!
This term, children will learn about different animals and their habitats and learn how to care for animals and their environments. Children will reflect on their own experiences with pets and visits to farmyards and zoos as well as uncover the animals that live in habitats across the globe. Children will read non-fiction books and stories about animals, developing their understanding between fact and fiction. This is an exciting topic and there will be multiple opportunities for children to get up close with animals throughout the term; starting with ducklings.
Help us foster a love of animals and the environment, by reading daily and sharing facts with your child at home.
Help them make their own connections with our topic by reflecting on their past experiences.
Your child can share their experiences by uploading photographs or videos onto Tapestry!
We'd love to see!
Mathseeds teaches kids aged 3-9 the core maths and problem solving skills needed to be successful at school with fun,
highly interactive and rewarding lessons. Mathseeds combines highly structured lessons with fun motivational elements
that keep children engaged and keen to learn.
We will be using Mathseeds as a class at school and we strongly
encourage families to log on and use Mathseeds at home throughout the week.
As your child progresses through the lessons, their teacher will be updated on their progress and the levels will become more challenging.
If you require your child's log-in details, please contact their teacher!
This year, your child will be taking part in a daily Read, Write, Inc. (RWI) phonics session.
This is a very successful programme that will enable your child to read and write independently and confidently. Each day your child will learn a new sound and will be taught how to put these sounds together to read words. They will also practice writing these letters and gain the knowledge and skills to write words and simple sentences independently.

Please help your child by hearing, saying and writing the new sounds. You can also help by reading and practicing words that contain the new sounds.
