Our value of the month is - Forgiveness




We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are glad to welcome you everyone back to another busy term in Parrots class.


Firstly, it is lovely to welcome Miss Cornes who will teach Parrots on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons to cover Mrs Millward's maternity leave and we also welcome Mrs Lewis who will work full time in Parrots class as a TA to cover Miss Nicholls' maternity leave.  As always we are all in school at the same times and communication is our priority so feel free to approach any of us with messages.  Seesaw will continue to be our key method of home-school communication so please let us know if you have lost your QR code for accessing it.


We are looking forward to a fun but purposeful term and you can find out more about our learning by clicking on the newsletter link below. You will also find a link to our class timetable.


HOMEWORK - we set English and maths homework on alternate weeks.  Books will be sent home on a Monday and will need to be returned on or before the following Monday for marking. In addition, we expect children to read with an adult for 10 minutes, five times a week, and to practise their froggy maths when they are able to.  We have noticed that very few children are reading and practising their tricky words at home.  The children making the most rapid progress in reading are those who read both in school AND at home.


COMMUNICATION - Most messages will be sent out via Seesaw and you can contact us using the messages or notes functions within the Seesaw app.  If any paper based letters are sent this will come home in your child's book bag and any slips should be returned in the book bags please.


TEAM WORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK - If you need to tell us something or have you questions you'd like to ask, you can catch any member of staff at the school gate to pass a message to us, or send a message on Seesaw.  We cannot fix anything we are unaware of, so please speak to us as soon as possible if you have any concerns and encourage your children to do the same.


Wishing you all a very happy, peaceful spring time,

Mrs Stead, Miss Bowen, Miss Cornes and Mrs Stead
