Dear Parents/Carers,

We hope you all enjoyed a well deserved rest over the half term break. We are all looking forward to hearing all about it from the children. 


Over this half term we have decided to focus our learning on a different continent each week. Our home learning challenges will encourage the children to explore different stories, artwork, cooking from different cultures.

This week we will be learning all about Australia!

We all cannot wait to see your lovely home learning photos- remember we will be choosing a few examples of amazing home learning from each class every week to be featured on the 'celebrating home learning page'.

Don't forget if there is ever anything we can do to support you please do get in contact with us. We ask that over the course of each week you get in touch just to keep us updated on your child's wellbeing. We will be making weekly check in phone calls every Wednesday to anyone we have not heard from. Please remember this is not checking up on you or what work you have completed but a way of knowing that your child is happy and healthy. 


Kind regards,

Miss Witherington, Mrs Pearson, Miss Carter, Mrs Pudney and Ms Padget
