Owl Class Newsletter – Spring 2022
We’d like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy and healthy new year and welcome you back to school. We look forward to a busy term with lots of learning and fun.
Reminders for Spring Term 1 2022
Please can you make sure your child has a coat and a named bottle filled with water with them each day.
Clothing, particularly jumpers and cardigans, should be named so that they can be returned to your child should it be lost.
P.E. will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday this term and children need to come to school in their P.E. kit on both of these days. Please note that, weather permitting, the children will be outside for the Tuesday lessons this term, so please ensure your child has appropriate clothing.
Children will be reading to an adult in school three times a week and they need to bring their reading diary to school on a Monday to allow us to stamp it to show that they have read to an adult. E-books will be set on a Friday.
Homework will be set on a Friday and is due in by the following Thursday.
Updates will be made on ClassDojo, so please make sure that you check the Class and School feeds for any posts.
If you wish to get in touch with me, please message me directly on ClassDojo. Alternatively, I can be contacted through the contact teacher form on the Owl Class page on the school website.
