Mrs Leeson and Mrs Evans
After a fantastic first term, it is lovely to be back. We are all looking forward to another fun-filled, hard-working term. Last term we created some amazing pieces of work including some stunning posters linked to of circus theme, our own stories based on our book 'Nell and the Circus of Dreams'.
Mrs Leeson teaches us on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and Mrs Evans teach us all day on Wednesdays and for P.E. on Thursdays. Miss Hornsey works with us every day and is enjoying challenging us and enhancing our learning in English and mathematics.
Please send your child's water bottle in with them every day. We will send them home every afternoon to be washed, refilled and returned the following day - plain water only please.
Your child will have English and maths homework to complete each week. This needs to be handed in each Wednesday and will be given back on Fridays.
Each week your child will be given a set of spellings to practise. They need to complete this on the sheet provided and also write a sentence with each of the words. The children should hand these in on Fridays. The children will be tested on their spellings on Fridays. Your child's score will be recorded in their planner each week.
The children are able to change our school reading books as soon as they have finished them. As our reading progresses, the length of the books tend to grow and changing regularly isn't always possible. It is important, however, that the children read as much as possible and we ask that the children read at least is three times a week - planners will be checked each Monday.
Woodhall Spa Library
Every term, we have the opportunity to visit our local library. We invite parents and family members to come with us, not only to help deliver us safely, but also to spend time with us discussing our favourite types of books and exploring different genres.
Our belongings: Please name all your child's belonging. We do try to ensure your child returns home with all their belongings and your help with this is much appreciated.
Please do ask if you have any questions.
