Spring 2019 Information


Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope you have had a lovely time during the Christmas holidays and I wish you all a very Happy New Year. I’m really looking forward to the start of our Spring Term as we will taking inspiration for all our learning from the book ‘Welcome’ by Barroux. It is a wonderful story about making a journey into the unknown and finding a home. Continuing a theme of making a journey, we will then be exploring Space as our topic. We will be creating a Space Station in our classroom and working as scientists and explorers to discover what we can about our universe!

Please do look at the information sheet about our recording and assessment method which you can access online. I will be making suggestions for activities you can try at home to upload onto your child’s learning journey over the coming weeks.

I will be sending home a new Reading Record with your child this week. The new books include tips for reading at home, letters sounds you can practice and Tricky Words it is helpful to learn. Thank you for reading with your children, it’s been a joy to see them all grow as readers over the last term.

A gentle reminder to order lunch for your child each day on the Live Kitchen website to ensure your child has the lunch you would like them to have. It’s possible to order weeks in advance to make life easier and if you have any problems logging on please speak to Miss Grief in the office.

Many thanks for all your support in settling the children so brilliantly into school life, I’m sure we are going to have another happy and stimulating term of learning together.

With best wishes,

Mrs Rachel Volland
