A Message from Miss Hey:
Hello and welcome back! I hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing Easter.

Phonics is a key part of our learning in EYFS and KS1. It is the basis of how we read and how we write and spell words. You can learn more about what phonics is and how we teach it here. There are also resources on the page such as sound mats and word lists, as well as ways you can help your child with their reading at home.
Please have a look at our Progression in Caluculation document here. This document shows the concrete - pictoral - abstract approach we use to teach the children addtion, subtraction, multiplication and division throughout the school. This will enable you to understand how we expect the children to do their work and help you assist them with their homework using the same methods we use in school.
Please read with your child as often as possible. If we feel that your child can read their book satisfactorily they can change it once a week. Please sign your child’s book every time you hear them read.
Homework will continue to be given out every Wednesday and is due in the following Monday. Please work with your child to complete their homework. If your child receives spellings in their phonics group, please practise these ready for their spelling test. The day of this will depend on which phonics group they are in.
