Week Beginning Monday 1st March 2021

Friday 26th February


Dear Year One,


We are thrilled with the news that the children will be returning on Monday 8th March and we cannot wait to see them all. We continue to be incredibly impressed with the enthusiasm and effort the children show towards their learning. Please find the Home Learning grid above for the last week of home learning.


World Book Day


World Book Day is on Thursday 4th March.  We are planning a dressing up Book Day later in the school year, on 23rd April. This date is Shakespeare’s birthday, St George’s Day and the Travelling Book fair will also be in school that week.


As a whole school we will also be creating a paper chain of all the books the children in school and at home read next week (1st-7th March). We would like the children to write their name, class and the title of the books they have read on strips of paper. They can do this for every book they have read (or have had read to them). Bug Club books are also included. A template can be found by clicking on the link in the reading section of the Home Learning grid, or any similar sized strips of paper can be used.  Children should bring their slips of paper into school when they return on the 8th March. We will make the strips into a paper chain and put it up at school to see if we can travel the length of the building with all the books the children have read.


Notices for this week

  • New reading books will be ready to collect on Monday 1st March between 9:30am and 10am. Please remember to return completed books during this time as well.
  • When the children return to school, please ensure that all school equipment and resources are returned. We would like the children to return with Independent Journals, handwriting books, whiteboards, pens and any other resources that were sent home.
  • Changes to calls: Morning registration will happen on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week and not on Monday 1st March. The longer weekly Teams call will take place on Wednesday 3rd March- please see the Weekly Grid for details.


Enjoy the sunshine and have a wonderful weekend.
