Key Information 

Children Return to School  - Monday 22nd February 2021

Please read the information below around drop off times. 


Please see the parent section of the website and recent emails for more updates.

'Let's Hatch'


Our topic this term is 'Let's Hatch'. The children will be exploring how living things grow, focusing on the story of 'The Odd Egg' and examining a variety of different genres and literature. The children will be exploring the outdoors, growing and caring for their own plants. We will also be learning about different animal habitats and a lifecycle of a bird. I look forward to hearing the children's ideas when they return to school!

We will be learning through the six areas of learning and experience. Making sure that all our activities are fun and exciting. I look forward to sharing the children's creations and work with you via Twitter this term.

Christian Value of the Term : Justice




Justice means more than making things ‘fair’. In order for people to live together well in a just community, it is important to have rules or laws that everybody sticks to.


As a family you may want to talk about:

• why it is important to have rules and laws

• rules or laws that you don’t think are just (or fair)

• family rules that you think are important

How can you practise Numeracy at home?

* Practise sequences of numbers in different ways, reciting forwards and backwards, and starting at different points.

* Count in 2's , 5's and 10's!

* Can you read and write numbers to 100? use a 100 square to practise!

* Look at the coins that you have at home. Which coins are these? do you identify them? 

* Go on a shape hunt. Which shapes do I recognise?


We will be learning a variety of different numeracy skills this year and we will be using the outdoors to explore numeracy in fun ways.
