 We hope you’ve had a lovely half term!

We’ve had a super start to our half term and really enjoyed celebrating our new topic ‘Sparkle and Shine!’

2 Simple Open Afternoon

A big thank you to all of you who came to our open afternoon, the children had a wonderful time showing you all of their learning and it was amazing to see how many of you sent us a picture! Thank you to all who have continued sharing pictures from home during half term, we love seeing them all. Please continue to keep us up to date with learning at home!

If there are any problems preventing you from sharing experiences at home via 2 Simple please do come in and speak to Miss Romaine.

Reading at Home:

Thank you to all your support reading with your children at home, it really does make such a difference. If your child reads at home three or more times they will receive a sticker!

Please continue to let your child teach you their phonics, remember to encourage your child to teach you both the letter name and the sound.

Parent Helpers:

A big thank you to the parents who have/are coming in to share their expertise and knowledge with us. We have been very lucky to have a fireman come in and talk this morning and the children absolutely loved it, it really helps bring their learning to life! If you would like to come in, please do come and speak to a member of the team!

The children love hearing all about your jobs, hobbies and interests.

Supporting Learning at Home:

In your child’s learning journal you will find logins for Education City, Learning Platform and Purple Mash, please login, explore some games and let us know your feedback.


Please keep sending in your child’s WOW leaves, we love celebrating all their super progress! If you need more please ask.

Our First Trip:

On the 11th December we will be going to Dell Farm for a Nativity trip. In the next few weeks you will receive a letter with all the information you need to know.

Class R production

Our EYFS production this year will be on Tuesday 18th December, time to be confirmed.

As always if there is anything at all please come and see us. Here’s to a super half term

Many thanks.
