Great second week!

Dear all,

As the second week of learning comes to a close, we all feel that we have come a long way since returning for the autumn term. Routines are now more confidently established and the children are getting into their stride with their learning. It continues to be wonderful for us to get  to know the children further.

We hope you have had a chance to digest all the information from the letters that have been sent out over the last two weeks. If you need any clarification, then please phone the office or catch us at the end of the day on the playground.



Your child will have their yellow Home Reading Journal returned this week so they can write a review of the book they are reading/ a book they have read. This is due Thursday 1st October.

They will also have received their Homework Book with spellings to learn, some vocabulary home learning and the maths they are expected to complete. This is due Thursday 24th September.

In their Homework book, they also have their creative homework task ideas for the autumn term– one piece should be completed each half term.

Reading passports have been sent out. The autumn completion deadline will be given in due course.

Finally, after going through the first part of the home diary last week, please go through the last six pages together. It has some interesting and useful information for children. Also, your child should fill in the home learning tasks they have completed for each day.  Please bring this home diary in every Thursday.


** Reminder –  it’s week 1 next week which means PE lessons will be on Wednesday!  Children should come to school wearing their PE kit.

Your child will have brought a book home from our class library, please could you send them in with your child on a Thursday, which is when we have our library time. This will be the only opportunity to change it with Mrs Porter as she is visiting each pod once a week this term. If you discover any old library books at home, please return to school and we will pass them on to Mrs Porter.
