We hope that you all had a lovely restful October holiday, welcome back!! We have such a full-packed fun year of exciting learning planned. We are ever so excited to see you all progress and looking forward to watching you learn new things throughout the year. Thank you all for a fab start to this academic year!

Start time will be 8:30am and we will be letting the children into school from the brown shared area doors, we will open the doors at 8.25am and collection time is 3:00pm however we try to start lining the children up a little before to avoid crowds of parents - please be patient as we have a lot of new faces to learn.

We can't wait to see what this year brings! 


Important Information:

PE days are Friday afternoon for ZEST and Friday afternoon for PE this means they're the same day and it is pretty easy for Duck class only one day to remember. School PE kit is black leggings, jogging bottoms or shorts, white t-shirt and a jacket other than their outdoor coat if possible. Children can come to school dressed in their PE kits.

Please ensure that your child has a named bottle with only water inside, we are a healthy school and promote children drinking water, staff also drink water with the children throughout the day. If you would like your child to have a carton of milk you can sign up for this on (or ask at the office if you need help)

Reading books are being sent home with the children (WB12th September) and these have to be read on 3 separate occasions, signed and then brought back into school to show your reading teacher. Please be aware that the class teacher may not also be the reading teacher - as they split and go to different groups for Read Write Inc (RWI). 

Thank you for your continued support, if you have any more questions please feel free to ask. 

Mrs Duckitt (Class Teacher) and Mrs Hussain (Teaching Assistant)

The children will be learning the story of The Midnight Teddies, they will be learning the T4W text and then applying all that they have learned to writing their own version of the story. They will have the opportunity to look at different word groups, sequencing the story and also planning, inovting and re-writing their own version. To finidh of the school year the children will be writing a recount about a visit that they have been on. 

Topic – School Days Summer 2:

During the topic of School Days, the children will be learning all about the Victorian School Days, this includes memorable experiences that they have had both in school and out of school. They will then be learning about plants and animals and how seasons change over time. The children will finish the year by taking part in Science week, Diversity Week and also a DT project including food technology.

As always if you have any questions then please feel free to ask! Mrs Duckitt
