Our first full week complete!

Dear Parents

What a week it has been with our young learners completing their first full week of learning. Our Early Years has been buzzing with children completing exciting home learning opportunities and demonstrating their learning through Seesaw. I have really loved looking through the children’s posts on Seesaw and am so impressed with their dedication, enthusiasm and commitment. I have seen writing inspired by dragon catching expeditions, watched children develop control in handling and pouring through tea parties and listened to communication and language skills develop through community times all in one week; this is just the tip of the ice berg when it comes to all the learning that has taken place this week in the Early Years!


It has been lovely to engage with you as parents and continue developing relationships with you both at the new parent coffee morning and during the learning pack collections. We will continue to look for opportunities to engage with you and I look forward to getting to know each of our Early Years families as the term progresses.


Next week sees the launch of our RWI programme in Reception as well as the first live Google Meets for our Nursery children. EY1 and 2 will be introducing learning engagement drop in sessions to further support the children’s independence in completing their learning tasks, the timings for these can be found on your child’s individual timetable. I just want to highlight that these sessions are for the children to be able to ask questions about their learning and receive further guidance if they wish. For any parents who have any questions or concerns about their child’s learning, you are kindly asked to contact your class teacher so that these sessions can be maximised for the children. In addition, we have some exciting updates to our library borrowing system, further information of which can be found on the parent hub. We hope the children will continue to make use of this fantastic resource throughout school closure.


Once again, I want to thank you all for your continued support with our home learning programme. Your positive and constructive feedback has been most appreciated and continues to help us in shaping the delivery of our home learning programme.


I wish you all a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing the children through their Seesaw posts and in our assemblies next week.


With best wishes

Hannah Cole
