This Friday (27th November) we will be having our first birthday celebration, this is for all of the children who have had a birthday during September, October and November. These children can come to school in their own clothes and the rest of the children will either come in their normal school uniform or PE kit if it is there usual PE day.
The children do not need to bring anything in for our celebration, school will provide a cupcake and candle for each birthday child and we have planned some games to play in our bubbles where the children will have the chance to win some sweets.
We have some banners to put up in all of our classrooms and we will play some party music to try and create a fun and exciting birthday atmosphere. We hope the children enjoy celebrating with their friends!
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The flu immunisation for the children in Reception to Year 6 will take place on Monday 23rd November 20.
In line with government guidelines, the children will now be working at home using an online platform. You should all now have your codes to access Seesaw. Follow the instructions using your individual codes to set up an account. Work will be posted daily until Friday 23rd of October. One set of action words will be posted this coming Friday morning to learn for the following week. There will be a daily sound posted and instructions on how to teach the sound. Also everyday, I will choose either a maths, reading or writing activity and an enjoyable practical activity involving the other areas of learning. Please remember, it is important to continuously practise letter and number formation and to share books with your children.
Thank you for your support during these challenging times,
Miss Palmer and Mrs Siddle.
The children are now going to be bringing sharing books home every Friday along with their reading record. The idea is not that the children read the book but that they share it with an adult or older sibling. Encourage your children to talk about the pictures, recognise single letters, predict what might happen, talk about what might happen from looking at the front cover, recount the story or answer simple questions about what happened in the story. Talk about the characters. Did your children enjoy the story and why? Does the story remind them of any events in their life?
In order for the children to begin their reading journey, they should familiarise themselves with holding a book, turning pages, knowing that print is read from left to right, using the pictures to help them read words. All are very important early reading skills. Tell them the name of the author and illustrator and look at the page numbers.
Please fill in the reading record with a short comment about whether your children enjoyed the story and if they were able to complete some of the above activities. As your child’s reading skills develop, they will begin to bring home Read Write Inc reading activities but these will be explained at that time.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Miss Palmer and Mrs Siddle.

All about … Year 1
We have finally reached the end of a very strange academic year. Myself and Mrs Siddle are very disappointed our year with such a lovely class was cut short and we wish all the children success throughout the rest of school. I have attached a set of activities and information to support your child’s transition to Year 1.
There is a fabulous story on Twinkl titled ‘The Cautious Caterpillar’. I could not attach the story but it can be easily accessed on Twinkl. It is a story explaining the transition from Reception to Year 1 through the eyes of a caterpillar. Below, I have attached a set of activities for the story which you might like to complete with your child. I have also attached a booklet with activities which your children may like to complete over the Summer break. The transition butterfly is to complete and give to your Year 1 teacher. Finally, I am attaching a document explaining the differences in the curriculum between EYFS and Key Stage 1.
Have a lovely Summer and Take Care,
Miss Palmer and Mrs Siddle.
