Reminders for Spring Term 1 2024


Please can you make sure your child has a coat at school every day as the weather is so changeable and a sunny morning can often change to a rainy afternoon. We like to take advantage of our lovely outdoor area and encourage the children to explore and investigate in the fresh air as much as possible whatever the weather (within reason!).

Please ensure your child has a named bottle filled with water with them each day.

We will be sharing poems and children’s favourite books on Mondays, and on Fridays we will be celebrating children’s out of school achievements, so please send any trophies or certificates in on Fridays.

P.E. will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children need to come to school on these days in their school P.E. kit.

Reading diaries and books will be sent home on Fridays and should be returned on Mondays. New eBooks will be assigned on Fridays.

Homework will be set on Fridays and should be returned by the following Thursday.

Updates will continue to be uploaded to ClassDojo, so please remember to check for updates. If you need to get in touch with me, please message me directly on ClassDojo. If you would prefer to email, my email address can be found using the contact box on our class page on the school website.
