Elephant Class



Dear Parents,

Welcome back!

It has been so lovely to have everyone back in school including Miss Jarra and Miss Ashton! Jack has also re-joined our class and we would like to extend a warm welcome back to him as well.

We hope the children are all very excited about our new topic –Rainforest Survival -we know we are looking forward to it!

Our P.E. days are still Monday and Tuesday. The children will need to come to school in full P.E. kit on these days. If the children are doing Mr Sinclair’s sports club after school on Friday, they will also need to come to school in their P.E. kits on Friday as well.

Our values this term are Understanding, Honesty, Politeness and Independence.

We will be reading The Explorer by Katherine Rundell this term. The children may wish to purchase their own copy to read at home.

Things to remember:

Break Time

If your child would like a snack at break time please provide them with fruit.

Reading books

We are unable to send reading books home at the moment. However, your child will read in school and they can still share one of their books with you at home. Reading is so important, please, please, please listen to your child read often as possible. We do have our online reading scheme Bug Club which gives children access to online books set at the right level for their reading ability. 

Spelling Shed and Times Tables Rockstars

Spelling tests will take place on a Wednesday in school. Children can practice their spellings on Spelling Shed at home. Spelling lists are uploaded onto Jotter Learn each week.

Times Tables Rockstars is still brilliant for practicing times tables at home. Remember to complete 10 sound checks to get your baseline speed.

Library books

We are unable to visit the school library at the moment.

Water Bottles

All children need to bring a named water bottle to school each day. All our water fountains are closed so this is vitally important. These bottles will be taken home each night to be cleaned and refilled at home.

If you ever have any questions please do email the Office and we will get back to you very quickly.

Best wishes

Mrs Cosbie-Ross and Miss Jarra
