Happy New Year to you all.
I hope you all enjoyed Christmas and are well rested and motivated for the new year.
January will be as busy as ever in panda class! We will continue to focus on a story each week and will begin with 'Room on a Broom'. Look out for spells and potion making!!
Our timetable will be very similar to last term; we will have daily inputs of english, maths and phonics (RWI) as well as small group times. We will continue with 'Forest School' every Tuesday and PE on a Friday.
Please continue to read daily with your child and help them to learn their key words. Many people find it useful to put keywords on the fridge; this ensures the children see them regularly and can quickly recap them each day.
We are launching a new home work system at Barley Close and panda class will be joining in with this. The children each have a new homework book which they will bring home every Friday with a short activity in it for you to do together. This book will then need to be returned to school by Wednesday. Please support your children to do this, we believe this will be fun and help the children to reinforce some of the learning they have done at school each week. If you have any concerns or questions about this, please come and see me and don't worry.
