It's wonderful to see all the KS1 children returning to school, we hope that you've had a lovely summer and are ready to take on the excitement and challenges of the new school year . To help the children in the return after the summer and settle into their new class we will be focusing on reading and writing, maths and phonics in the morning with fun activities covering all the other curriculum areas in the afternoon with an emphasis placed on play and essential social skills.
Please don't worry if you feel your child is behind following the lockdowns of the last 18 months, all children across the country are in exactly the same position and we are planning and delivering our teaching to support all children making sure that no-one is left behind.
