Important Information

School starts promptly at 8.55am and finishes at 3.30 p.m. Your child’s regular and prompt attendance at school is crucial to his/her success. Please encourage them to line up in the playground so they are ready to be collected by an adult. 

As soon as the children enter the classroom in the morning, children immediately start their learning. This is when we will do Handwriting, Dough Disco and next steps to enhance their learning.

The children have a Guided Reading session every morning in which they read with an adult and have activities related to their book and our topic on the other days. This provides an idea of the things we do during Guided Reading.  

During this Summer term, we will be completing a unit with stories from other cultures. We will be reading Handa’s Surprise and other similar stories. They will be writing their own story at the end of the unit.
We will then be looking at non-fiction books and writing our own information page about toys in the past.

Have a look at these websites at home to improve spellings, grammar and reading.
