We are an amazing class who are taught by Mrs Cargill, Mrs Leonard and Mrs Harrington.
We are very excited about all our new learning.
Keep checking on Twitter and our class page to see what we have been doing.
Every week, on a Thursday, the children will bring home a new set of spellings. Please practise these for a spelling test the following week. Please also continue to practise the common exception words on the lists that have been sent home.
The children change their books every Tuesday and may also change them again during the week, if they have completed and read the books confidently. We would advise for you to read with your child daily which we will reward at school with stickers on their bookmarks!
Our P.E lessons are on Thursday and Friday. Please include trainers for our outdoor sessions.
Please see me if you have any questions or queries.
