Hello and Welcome!
I has been lovely to see all the children back in school this week.
This half term we will continue with our topic ‘Celebrations and Festivals’. Each week we will continue to look at different celebrations and festivals and learn about how they are celebrated. Our literacy work will be based around our topic and we will continue with individual/group reading and key words as well as our daily phonics and handwriting activities.
Please see the timetable on the Spring Curriculum Newsletter for when books and bags will be sent home and when they need to be returned to school.
Homework: For this half term homework tasks will be set online on the 5th and 19th March, details will be on the Homework page on this website.
