Home learning 9th May-


Next week, we are going to look at ways in which we can look after our world. over the weekend i would like the children to collect different pieces of clean rubbish to bring in, sort and discuss.

Have a lovely weekend, Mrs Walsh

Today we have been planning our new topic- "Plants, pests, people and places"  We have explored lots and thought of some ideas.  Over the long weekend i would like you to think of one special thing that you would like to explore.  This could be reading an appropriate book, visiting a special place or finding out about something.  I cant wait to see all of your ideas.  

Have a lovely long weekend, Mrs Walsh

Happy Easter!


Wow! The end of term two!  It has been a lovely term, the children have really flourished, it has been a real privilege to really see them develop.  

Over the Easter holidays i would like the children to practise their phonics, numbers to thirty and counting in twos to twenty also.  How many words can you read whilst out and about?

On Monday 29th, Tuesday 30th and Wednesday 1st, both myself and Miss Brocklehurst are going with year five to Hilston. Mrs Jones our supply teacher will be looking after Reception during this time.  I will be leaving them lots of jobs to keep them busy and look forward to seeing them all on Thursday 2nd May.

Have a lovely, restful Easter; enjoy the sunshine and making memories, Mrs Walsh
