The fantastic start to the new school year has continued this week, with the children settling well into their classes and lots of learning taking place. The children had a great time taking part in 'New Year, New Me' Week and it was lovely to welcome so many of you into school on Friday.
Thank you to all those who have also been to the Meet the Teacher sessions after school, these continue this week (see below).
Online Reading and Maths resources to use at home
Please remember that Reading Eggs, Reading Eggspress, Times Table Rock Stars and SumDog, the online programmes that we subscribe to, are available for the children. If you cannot remember your password please speak to your child’s class teacher who will be able to reissue it to you .
If you have not yet signed into Class Dojo please ask your class teacher for your login details. If you have a new phone or device and need the password again to access the Dojo please also ask, it really is such a helpful and valuable communication tool for us and you as well as a way of celebrating your children's achievements in school.
Nursery and Reception
It has been lovely to welcome all the new children to Reception this week, they certainly seem to have settled into school life quickly! We look forward to welcoming some of our Nursery children this week.
Please be aware that China are off swimming on Monday. Please ensure that the children have the necessary kit in school with them.
