Hello and Welcome!
I hope you are all keeping well.
We are all really enjoying looking for and learning more about different minibeasts in year 1. It has been wonderful to see the children so excited watching our class caterpillars grow and change over time. They are well and truly in their chrysalis state at the moment and we are watching them in anticipation waiting for them to emerge as beautiful butterflies. I am sure you will hear all about it when they do!
Please see the timetable on the
Summer Curriculum Newsletter for when books
and bags will be sent home and when they need
to be returned to school, as well as dates for
when homework will be set.
Thank you for all your support,
