Term 6 - posted 3rd Jun

Term 6

Welcome to the final term of the year! This term we will be learning all about the Seaside. We will be learning about how to recreate patterns to imitate waves, using a range of medias to create beach pictures, learning about colour and what happens when we mix these, sea creatures and pirates! As well as this, we will be looking at pebbles and shells we can find at the beach.

Things to try at home:

* finding lots of different items that are yellow or blue
* take a trip to the seaside and listen to the waves
* make a 'wave' picture with crayons and watered down paint
* decorate a pebble or paint pebbles different colours to make arrangements and patterns with them
* make a pirate hat and pretend to sail the seas!
* finding clothes or items that you would need to take to the beach to stay safe and cool
* look at books about the seaside or sea creatures

EHCP Statutory Assessment - posted 3rd Oct

Dear parents/carers,

Recently we had a meeting to discuss the EHCP process. For those that were unable to make the meeting, I have sent home an information sheet detailing about the procedure. Included is a permission form. I must have this returned ASAP in order to initiate the process for you as unfortunately, I am unable to send over confidential information regarding your child if I do not have signed permission to do so. I, therefore, ask that you return these to me by the end of term 1 so that I can begin the processes in term 2.

If you have any questions about the procedure, I am more than happy to meet with you to go through your concerns.

Many thanks for your continuing support!
