Changes to the curriculum As you may be aware we have a new curriculum this year. There are changes in topic titles (themes), new learning objectives and 2 new documents we have compiled in each year group. The year group ‘Menu’ gives a brief overview of all the learning for the year. The year group ‘Timeline’ shows how we have planned to arrange the learning across the year. As with anything new it has been an exciting time but there will undoubtedly be alterations and ‘tweaks’ There has also been a few changes to the English and Maths curriculum but the overall learning objectives are very similar.

Numicon You may have heard the children talking about this new resource that we are using to support our Maths curriculum – it is already proving a massive hit with everyone
Start/End of Day (Communication) The children are already getting into the habit of coming into school on their own in the mornings which is a great support in developing their responsibility and independence. Should you wish to discuss anything with us we will be available after school unless there is anything that is crucial to support your child's learning that day. Tuesday’s are Staff Meetings so we may have limited time that evening. Please come and see us if you are unsure, concerned or worried. If your child is going home with someone else please send them in with a note in the morning to let us know.
PE days and Kit PE is on a Monday and Thursday. The children will need their kit on these days. Changing independently and being responsible for belongings. PE kit should be: T-shirt, shorts, jumper, tracksuit bottoms and trainers Long hair must be tied back for PE days. If your child has their ears pierced please make sure that they do not wear earrings on their PE day or can take them out themselves. NAME LABELS!! (Please !!)
