Happy Home Learning

Please encourage your child to write their name using the correct letter formation. During the Easter break can you be a 'number magnet'? Find numbers around your environment. What numbers can you see? Can you take photographs of the numbers you see in the environment? Enjoy!


Literacy – In the Easter Holidays can you get your favourite Teddy and practise reading your reading book or any book to it at home?  

Also, can you play at schools and practise reading and writing phase 3 tricky words?

The tricky words are: he, she, we, me, be, was, my, you, they, her, all, are. 

Number – Using numbers from 0 – 20 can you pretend to be a bouncing Easter Bunny and have a number hunt around the garden? When you have found them see if you are a clever magic rabbit and put them in order.

Happy Easter!

Puppet Show

We would like to say a big ‘Thank you’ to our friends from Maltby Salvation Army who presented an Easter Themed puppet show for our children. Everyone enjoyed listening to the stories and singing along to the songs. Sylvia Bird (The Puppeteer) commented on how well behaved and polite our children are and is looking forward to coming back to our school again soon.

Easter Bonnet Parade

Wow! The school was very colourful yesterday as the children paraded their beautiful bonnets. There were some spectacular designs and it was very difficult for our judges to choose the winners. Well done to everyone who took part and to all the grown ups who helped to make our Easter Bonnet Parade a success.
