‘Play Together, Learn Together, Achieve Together’





Welcome to our class page - we hope you enjoy looking through the things that we do in school and that you come back regularly to see what new things have been added!


Check out some of the websites below and have lots of fun while you learn!


A huge welcome to all our new Chicks, Ducklings and parents and carers. We are all delighted to welcome everyone to their new classes and to the school year, and we hope that the first few weeks go as smoothly as possible for us all.

We will be helping everyone to settle in well over the first few weeks and have lots of activities planned to help all the children feel as comfortable and content as possible. Some may need a little more help than others to get used to being in school each day – please don’t worry as we will take good care of them.

We will always be on hand if you have any questions or worries. The children will all be sent home with their pink Homelink books on the first day, and this is a great place to write any notes to us that you would like to. We will check them each morning.

Children will quickly be given reading books to bring home – it would be wonderful to start as you mean to go on and begin doing daily reading at home. At first this may be looking at the pictures together and talking about what your child can see, trying to re-tell the story, or discussing the characters and the setting. You could also begin to sound out some words together – for example, can you see a c-a-t? Or play I-Spy – I spy something beginning with ‘c’ – what do you think it could be? Please jot a quick note in the Homelink book each time you do this and this will be the start of your child’s journey through our Reading Jungle.

There will also be some small homework activities sent home each Friday. These will be related to things we have been doing during class time. We realise that the children will be very tired over the first few weeks so please do whatever they can manage. We will always try to make the activities fun things you can enjoy doing together!

We have a PE slot on Wednesday afternoons. For the first half-term we will concentrate on taking shoes and socks off and using the hall in bare feet.  After half-term, please send in a PE kit with black plimsolls which we will keep in school.

We will aim to have Tapestry up and running in the first few weeks of school starting. Thank you to all parents who have given us email addresses. We will let you know when the links have been sent out for you to activate your accounts with. We really hope you enjoy being able to see a small part of what your children take part in at school.


With love,
