Notices & Reminders



Next week we will be starting Phase 4 Blends and Clusters. 

I have put a copy of the Phase 4 sounds mat in your child's bookbag to keep at home.

Empty Pringles pots!

Please could each child bring in an empty Pringles pot (standard size) with the lid for something we will be making next term. It would be helpful if their name was written on the pot as well. 

It would be great if these could be handed in by the end of the first week back after the Easter holidays. 

Thank you!

Miss Gil



Homework mid-term review

I have enjoyed looking at the wonderful homework that has been handed in for the scheduled mid-term review. Well done Reception!

Please could I now ask you to glue in any paper sheets that are not already stuck in to the yellow books. This ensures that everything is together, clearly presented and not misplaced. This includes any phonics worksheets that the children have completed.

The phonics flashcards however should be cut up and be kept at home for the children to use. We gave out zippy wallets at the beginning of the year for these to be stored in at home.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me at the end of the day.

Thank you

Miss Gil 




Our PE times are now Wednesday (a.m) and Friday (p.m).

Old Harlow Library books

The children each selected a few fiction/ non-fiction books that they would like to borrow from the library. The librarian Dominic kindly made the time to put these aside for you with names on so that the children can return with an adult to take out their chosen books.

Tricky words

This week we have been learning the days of the week for our tricky words. We will be sending home a copy of these with the phonics homework to practise at home if possible.

Miss Gil



If you would like to double check how to correctly pronouce sounds, please follow the link below. Mr Thorne Does Phonics is a useful resource to help children to learn the sounds as well. 

Miss Gil



I have put together some resources that you may find useful to support your child's learning at home. They are in your child's book bag. 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend,
Miss Gil
