Welcome back, we hope that you all had a fantastic break and are all refreshed for the new term.
Mrs Vicary and Mrs Sende welcome children to Cherry class.
Mrs Chivers, Miss Castiglione and Mrs Corbett welcome children to Birch class.
P.E. will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has their full P.E. kit in school every day.
We are planning through a creative curriculum. The Creative Curriculum balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children's learning styles and building on their strengths and interests. It is the best way to engage and enthuse children in the learning process.
We are starting our term looking at phonics as this will be year 1's focus; ensuring that all children are working at the correct levels in both daily phonic and reading sessions. Reading books will be coming home shortly and we ask you to listen to your child read every day, even if it is only for 5 minutes. Please write on the 'home page' on the day your child reads.
If you would like to come in and listen to children read, please let us know. Also, come and speak to us should you have any queries.
Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.
Please remember to listen to your child(ren) read during the Easter holidays and record in their reading records.
Have a lovely break.
As part of our design and technology project we visited the park to look at 'A' frames and the materials
which the freestanding structures were made from. We had a light refreshment then played on the climbing frame to end the morning.

Year 1 would like to thank you for coming to watch their harvest singing performance at the end of term. This will help the children to build confidence when performing in front of an audience.
