Welcome back for the summer term.
We hope that you and the children have had an excellent Easter holiday despite the grey weather. This term starts with our visit to Stansted Mountfitche Castle in the first week, which opens our topic for the half term about the Battle of Hastings and Norman castles. Hopefully the weather will prove dry and warm for our visit. It would be best due to the nature of the site if the children wore trainers for that day only. Please remember if it is warm to make sure you child has plenty to drink and has been covered in sun cream.
As the term hopefully becomes warmer and you want to provide your child with a water bottle for the classroom can you please ensure that it is clearly named.
Just a few reminders PE is on Monday and Friday. Please ensure that your child's PE kit is in school and named. Reading records and books are expected to be in school every day, so books can be changed regularly as the children need. Please sign your child's record as they receive a sticker every day they read and a certificate if they read for the whole week. The expectation is that you child reads every night. Homework is set on Thursday and returned on Tuesday morning.
Regarding soft start. The classroom doors are opened at 8.30 and the session finishes as 8.45 Monday to Thursday. You are most welcome to come in and read with your child.
If you have any queries or concerns please contact the office and they will arrange an appointment after school.
Thank you for kind support
Mrs Plester and Mr Leonard
