We hope you and your family have had an enjoyable summer and made the most of some of the beautiful sunny days. Your children are setting well into life in Year 1 and 2 and enjoying learning with new friends. They have returned with much energy and many questions to get our new topic started. Our topic is called 'Houses and Homes' and will continue until the end of the Autumn Term.
If your child has any ideas for our new topic, they can put them in our treasure chest. Our webpage is for sharing all the exciting things we could learn in our class as well as giving you and your family hints and tips to help support and extend your learning at home.
Woodland Learning will continue on a Friday but in the afternoon. It will be a mixture of learning out on the Englefield Estate, in the pond area, class garden, Super Spot and Cookery Room. Woodland Learning will begin on Friday 4th October. If your family would like to help with Woodland Learning, speak to one of the Year 1/2 staff team or Mrs Frith (James' Mummy). Please make sure your children have a change of clothes just right for staying warm/keeping cool and possibly getting muddy.
If you're looking for different books to read, see how many stories, poems and information books you can read about houses and homes. Why not visit our school or local library?
P.E will still be on Mondays with Mr Chard (games outside) and with Mrs Carney on a Wednesday (gym or dance in the hall). Please bring your PE kit into school on a Monday and take it home for washing on a Friday. In order for your child to use the wall bars they must have shorts and a t shirt. Please make sure all your child's belongings are named, including their indoor and outdoor shoes. There will be a kit and uniform check on Friday 13th September.
Thank-you for your support,
Mrs Carney, Mrs Newsome, Mrs O'Sullivan and Mrs Hough
We love you to read anything and everything. Reading feeds your mind! The following list is merely a guide for families to help with choosing books from school, your local library or to have at home.
