ORDERS FOR CHRISTMAS CARDS - due in on Monday morning at the latest. Not everyone will have one of these letters. Depends on whether your child was in school this week when they were done. 

 

Y2 parents please follow this link and take a look at the spellings your children will be learning to spell in school. This is only for information and there is no onus on yourselves or the children to be learning them at home.

Star of the Week for last week was Issy, who was awarded the certificate for great effort with her place value work in Maths.
Pupil in C2 have really developed their hockey skills and are now having mini-matches in PE which they have really enjoyed.

Thursday is Mufti day organised by the PTA. Please see the poster above for more details 

A reminder that Wednesday morning is our “gladiator” experience morning! They will also need to have their PE kit (with warm layers) in school for changing into before lunch. 

Another reminder; homework books need to be handed in straight after half term in order to see how the children are getting on with their projects. Please can parents remember to complete the record sheet in their books and stick in photos etc. as evidence? Thank you! 

Wishing everyone a lovely half term break from all the staff in Class 2

Supporting Parents Helpfinder (Young Minds)
Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different direction and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.
A mixture of concern about covid, work from home and children at home, along with a possible financial impact make for a stressful household.
Young Minds have created a useful 'Supporting Parents Helpfinder'. By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child's mental health during the pandemic (and beyond).
Find the help finder here: https://youngminds.org.uk/supporting-parents-helpfinder/

 

Sleep is an important part of everybody's well being 

  • Does your child struggle with their sleep?
  • Would you like to access support to help to improve sleep and bedtime routine?
  • Would you like to meet other parents/carers to share and discuss experiences?
