Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year!
School is returning a little differently this term as your learning will be online for you to do at home. Each day work will be set on Google Classroom and you will be asked to upload / email me what you have done so I can give you some feedback.
Hopefully it won’t be long until we are all back in class together. Please feel free to email me with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m looking forward to hearing from you all. I’m sure we’d all rather things weren’t like this, but let’s make the best of it and keep the learning fun!

Well, all of a sudden, we’ve had nearly 5 weeks of school and what a lot of learning you’ve done already!
Our Curious Curriculum topic (‘I Wonder…What wriggles, crawls, flutters or buzzes?’) has been a lot of fun, learning about the life cycles of bees and butterflies and finding out why they’re so keen on finding pretty flowers. We’ve also looked at different ways insects use camouflage so keep those eyes peeled for real examples in your garden or the park.
As your new teacher I’ve been so impressed with how much you already know but especially how much you want to learn more! It’s great to hear so many children able to say what they’re getting better at. Also, it’s wonderful to see such a brilliant attitude to learning when something is tricky – “I can’t do it….yet!”

It’s your first day back on Monday and, for some of you, it’s your first day back at school in a long, long time. We all know you might be feeling all types of jumbled up, mixed up or upside-down feelings…or may be fizzy with excitement! We’ve been here for the last 2 days setting up the classroom and making sure you’re going to be safe and ready to be reunited as a team again. We are SO looking forward to seeing you all on Monday and remember, no matter how you are feeling, we are here to help and keep you safe.
