Term 2

Key Dates for Term 2

Monday 2nd November - First day of term

Friday 11th December - Dress as a Nativity Character - this is partly to help reinforce knowledge of the story we have been learning but also to provide a chance for Reception children to dress up for nativity as this is something of a rite of passage. It can be as simple as a paper crown to be a king or a full on camel onesie. What ever you and your child would like to do.

Friday 18th December - Last day of term

Key Information for Term 2

Ruby Class: PE on Tuesdays, Forest School on Wednesdays.

Learning at home

We love to see what your child has been learning at home and you can share photos, videos and notes by using the EvidenceMe app. If you are not sure how to use it you can see an instructional video here:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are going to be adding planning and resources to this page regularly for your child to access should you need to self-isolate. Here are also some links your child can follow to take them to some useful phonics and number games that we regularly use in school.
