Homework due next week

I have been amazed at all of the fantastic activities that lots of the class have been doing for their homework in the recent weeks.  I just thought I would send out a little reminder that all autumn term homework is due in next week (this can be any day next week). Please do not forget that Tapestry is a great way to record homework as well. Please could children bring in their homework folders with the yellow books next week in as the feedback is glued into them. It may be useful if everyone ticks off the activities that your child has done on the grid so that I can see which award each child has aimed for. 


Please remember that if you ever have any questions or want to chat then I am available every day after school. You can also send me a message via Tapestry and I can then delete the message afterwards so that it is not kept on your child's learning journey. The clipboard is also a great way to let us know something as well.

Thank you and please do ask if you have any questions.

Learning Afternoon

Because the phonics breakfast and class activities now fall the day before the previously scheduled Learning Afternoon, we will now be postponing the Learning Afternoon to

Tuesday 16th January 2:45-3pm.

This is a short session where we invite parents/carers into our class setting to observe and work with the children in their learning environment. It is a great session and we hope to see you all there. We hope to run a Learning Afternoon every half-term after this date.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.



I have now uploaded the Autumn term homework under the password protected homework area. I have also uploaded a word document explaining the homework if this is useful for anyone. 

Homework folders will go home tonight.

Please come to see me if you have any questions at all.

50 Things to do before you're 5!

I have attached a brilliant idea that I found out about on one of our Early Years cluster meetings.

It is a project which aims to develop children's language skills.

The checklist includes affordable rich experiences which all promote talk. 

According to the Education Endowment Foundation Early Years Toolkit, studies of communication and language approaches in the Early Years “consistently show positive benefits for young children’s learning, including their spoken language skills, their expressive vocabulary and their early reading skills.”

All activities completed can be uploaded to Tapestry as well.

Please do have a look! It sounds fantastic.
