If you wish to speak to your child’s teacher, the face to face drop-in day for Opal and Pearl would normally be straight after school on Tuesdays.  Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 restrictions, we are not able to offer this. Messages can be left with the adult on the door at the start/end of each day or please message us via Google Classroom or your child’s school planner – your child’s teacher will get back to you. For any urgent matters please contact the school office (01454 867799) to arrange a suitable time for a telephone conversation.

Opal and Pearl have PE on Fridays; we ask your child to come to school in their PE kit every Friday from the 20th September. Each child needs a pair of their own wellington boots kept in school so that they are suitably prepared for ‘welly walks’ and outdoor learning opportunities. These can come into school on the first day of term. Please can we remind parents that all items of clothing need to be clearly named.

We ask that you read five times each week with your child to achieve a ‘FIVER’ and write what they have read in their school planner. School planners are checked daily and FIVERS will be logged every Friday. There will also be keywords that we would like the children to learn from memory so we would be grateful if you could practise these with your child regularly. There are 11 sets and we will provide a new set of keywords when the previous set is known securely; i.e. each word can be read by sight without the need to sound out and blend. Details of any further activities and topic overviews can be found in the ‘Curriculum Letters’ section of our school website. 

Learning journals will be sent home via ‘Parentshare’ at the end of each short term so you can share in their wonderful achievements and experiences. We love to hear what your think about your child’s learning journal so please reply to the termly email with your comments when you receive it. You are a big part of your child’s learning journey!

A curriculum meeting to give you an insight into what we teach and how we teach would normally take place in October. Sadly, due to Covid 19 restrictions we are unable to do this in school but a powerpoint will be sent home so you can experience the meeting virtually.

Finally, keep an eye on our Google Classroom – we will keep you up to date with what we are doing in school!
