Our teachers are Mrs Cleminson and Miss Hargreaves.
Mrs Cornforth, Miss Sheard and Miss Riley help us with our learning throughout the week. 
Bookbags & water bottles
Everybody must remember to bring their book bag and reading book EVERY DAY and a named bottle of water - our brains need a lot of water to help them work properly. 
We have PE on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please remember to bring your named PE kit on these days. We do not mind if you choose to leave your kit in school, we will send it home at the end of each half term for washing. If you choose to take your kit home each week, please ensure it is back in school for the following weeks PE lessons. Our school PE kit consists of a plain white T-shirt, plain black shorts (no skorts), plain black leggings or plain black jogging bottoms (with elasticated ankles).
As well as regular reading and weekly spellings, maths or literacy homework will be given as necessary. Please spend time with your child, reassuring them in a supportive atmosphere. It is the QUALITY of work, not quantity that we look for. We may also have project homework for each project, if so, the ideas sheet will go home at the beginning of the project.
All children take part in a 20-minute phonics lesson, Monday to Thursday. If you have questions about the phonics scheme used at school, please feel free to speak to any member of staff. Your child will receive spelling from their phonics teacher each week.

Every child takes part in at least one Guided Reading session each week. Guided Reading is where children read in small groups of similar ability, supported by an adult. The adult will ask children questions about what they have read and the style of the book to aid with comprehension skills and to encourage enjoyment of reading. Your child will be listened to once a week 1:1 with an adult, this is when your child will change their home reading book.
It is very important that children read at home with parents and carers. Reading regularly improves not only their reading skills but really improves their standard of writing too. Reading is a vital life skill that impacts on all areas of your child’s learning. As it is such an important skill, your child needs short, daily practice. Please read with your child for 5-10 minutes every day.
As some of you may know, our school has invested in the Accelerated Reader programme. This programme provides children with the opportunity to read a wide range of both fiction and non-fiction books, of their choice, targeted at their reading age, then complete online quizzes about the book. Your child will aim to be using this programme by the end of Year 1.
Our current project is called ‘Funnybones'. During this project we will be learning about Florence Nightgale's life, what she did, why and how it has affected modern day life. We will be visiting Thackray Medical Museum, a fantastic school trip which will transport back to the time Florence was alive! We will be reading the story 'Funnybones' and this will be our inspiration when making puppets in D&T, they may even become moving pictures! It is set to be an exciting term long project!.
If you would like to come in and help at all, please call in and let us know, we are always grateful of any support. Or if you have any questions or require any further information, please see one of us at the door in the morning or at hometime. You are also welcome to phone us at school on 01274 679541.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your anticipated support this year.
Many Thanks,
                 Mrs Cleminson, Miss Hargreaves, Mrs Cornforth and Miss Sheard
