Welcome to Week 4 of Term 2!
Welcome everyone! We are looking forward to another week of learning! We are very excited to have welcomed back just about everyone in R1FD and R1KJ!
As always we are still maintaining hygiene, by encouraging frequent hand washing particularly before eating and when returning to the room as well as sterilising all surfaces, light switches and door handles in the learning area every morning and throughout the day where possible.
Thank you for all of your support as always. Please remember we are always available via email if you should feel the need to chat about your child and their learning. We know it is difficult at the moment with restrictions to entering the school but please feel assured that we are still contactable and still happy to help wherever we can.

Handwriting with R1FD
While R1KJ were at PE R1FD discovered a new sound blend.
We thought of some words which use the sound and wrote them in our writing books, ensuring that we were forming the letters correctly and writing within the lines.
Keeping Safe Child Protection Curriculum
Today we continued our conversations around our right to be safe, what that means, how that feels, what being safe looks like and where safe places are.
Today’s main focus was on safe places..
Children reflected on where their safe place to go to is when they are feeling unsafe. They considered where that safe place would be in different settings, such as…
