Dear Families, 

Happy New Year! We hope all families had an enjoyable holiday period. We are looking forward to a positive and exciting Spring Term. This week’s newsletter is sharing key information to help us work together during this short half term. 

Week 1: 8th – 12th January: Today you will receive important learning information in your child’s bag. Spring Term Class Timetable, Curriculum Pathway Medium Term Plan, Learning Targets (known as Personal Learning Intention Map), and Overview of classmates and teaching team. The pack also includes your child’s Autumn Term attendance and progress report. 

Week 2: 15th – 19th January: The optional Autumn Term progress meetings with the class teacher are scheduled. Thank you for completing the form if you planned to attend the optional progress meeting. The technology team will also be available if you require any tech support for Evidence for Learning.

Home – School Communication: Day to day communication between the home and class teacher is through the ‘home-school communication book’. Please continue to use this. Teachers and the class team are preparing the day’s learning activities from 8:30-9:30 and teaching from 9:30-3:30. The teacher is able to pick up phone call messages and emails from the school day at 3:45-4:00pm. If you email after school hours (4:30pm to 8:30am) it will be picked up by the class teacher at 3:45pm the next day. We also communicate with you through a weekly newsletter. This is sent via email, text, and through the school website.

Wishing all of our families an enjoyable weekend.
