Congratulations to Kal-El this week for showing such zest this week with his writing!

We have already been out to visit Southwark Park to observe the changing of the seasons and collect sycamore leaves and seeds to inspire us with our art and writing!

If you have time over the weekend it would be great to take some time to visit a park and explore the seasonal changes with the children.

Here are the books we will be looking at this term:

HOMEWORK will be given out on a Friday and brought back the following Monday. There will be 10 spellings, along with relevant maths homework for the week and we would love to continue with the home school books- if you have any at home please bring them in!

Year 1 Phonics Screening

As you know, Year 1 will be doing their statutory phonics screenings during the week commencing 11th June. There is a parent/guardian meeting giving information all about this on 9th May 4.45pm at Old Jamaica Road. In advance of this meeting, we have posted at the bottom of this page a helpful guide telling you all about the screenings and also a list of flash words that you can print out and use at home. We hope these will be helpful to you in the run up to the June tests. We hope you find this information helpful and look forward to seeing you at the meeting on the 9th.
