Phase Leader: Mrs Natalie Mears
Birch: Miss Atkinson and Mrs Mears
Headteachers Update about Mrs Mears
As you will be aware Mrs Mears is absent from school and we are sorry to advise that this is due to her current ill health. The entire Early Years Team are ensuring that the children are well supported, with Miss Lucy Atkinson teaching more of the week and Mrs Kerrie Slade and Mrs Debbie Cooke providing consistency for the children all week long. Mrs Clare Ward, whom the children already know from singing lessons, joins the team and Mrs Corinne Warwick continues to support learning in the mornings. I am very proud of the way the children are happy and engaged in their learning. This reflects the professional dedication of the staff and pupils. I will keep you updated about the current situation.
Phase newsletters will be displayed in the attachment section below.
Learning at home
Here are some useful links to websites to help you child's learning at home.
Bug Club is a website to help your child develop their reading skills. All the books are online with interactive questions throughout the book. Each child has their own log in with appropriate books for them to read and more will be added when they have read them. Click here to go to the website.
Phonics play is a website to help your child develop their phonological awareness to sound out words. This will help them in their Year 1 phonics assessment. Click here to go to the website.
