Important Notices:

Walking down the ramp:
It is that time of year when  we start to encourage the children to develop their independence skills even further and walk down the ramp with their peers.  If you feel you child is ready, please encourage them to do so. Parents and carers can stand at the top of the ramp and watch them walk safely in their classrooms. This usually helps with the transition in Year 1.
Learning Challenge
Each half term we will be setting our pupils a challenge related to their learning. We believe that it is important for us to provide guidance for parents on how their children's learning can be extended at home.
The learning challenge will include either a nursery rhyme, famous person, illustration or a piece of music. Please talk to your child about the challenge and help them to engage in their learning. The children can choose how they present their learning challenge outcomes to their teacher or class. Please find some ideas in the table below.  Please ensure the completed challenge is handed in to your child’s teacher by Monday 16th July, so that the certificates can be prepared.
