Dear Parents and Carers,

This week has been an exciting one for the children as the Christmas festivities have begun. Year 1 performed brilliantly! We are sure you will enjoy watching them too, it was lovely seeing you in school.


Please find some information to help support your child over the next week.



Thank you for completing the homework again this week.  We are going to continue homework with a new format in the New Year. Until then, continue to read with your child and play number games. We will not be setting homework until 2022. We will keep your child’s homework folder until then.


Following our phonics assessment in your child's reading diary is a sheet of sounds and words to continue working on. 



Please wear PE kit to school on Tuesday (14th) and Thursday (16th) next week.
