We are all looking forward to sharing this year with you; having fun playing, exploring and learning together, helping you to be the best YOU that you can possibly be.


*Our Six Key Learning Skills*


This year we are working to reintroduce and remind the children of our Six Key Learning Skills, our core values that we want to underpin the children's learning journey in school. These are resilience, respect, independence, confidence, co-operation and enthusiasm. This half term we are focussing on resilience. We have talked with the children about what this means; having a go, not giving up, adapting and bouncing back. We have a display in the class and make the most of all opportunities to help the children to be more aware of what resilience is and to celebrate when it has been demonstrated with the class. It would be great if you could reinforce this at home. Perhaps they carried on with something even after hurting themselves, maybe they persevered with something tricky. Just say 'WOW you showed great resilience.'


Please keep an eye on our page for lots of information regarding our learning journey this year. In the subject icons below you will find links to videos, games, activities and resources that may be useful for supporting your learning at home. We will also share lots of photos of our learning journey with you on this page.


Please remember to wear PE kit to school on Wednesdays.
