Supporting Learning at Home
We recognise the extremely important role that parents play in their child’s education. We want to work in partnership to help parents develop their skills supporting their child’s learning at home. If parents would like any support with developing home learning please see Miss Mbuku and Miss Emmanuel.
Every week we change the children’s home reading books, as well as sending home spellings and homework for the children to learn and complete.

News and Photos
Here are some photos from 1B group 2 bubble. They were doing some butterfly painting using sponges. They tied an elastic band around the centre of the sponge then dabbed the paint on one side of the sponge then squished the sponge together to ensure all the paint covered. Then they printed the butterfly patterns on the paper and painted the body and antenna.
Year 1 enjoyed visiting the National Army Museum. They participated in a workshop discovering different materials. Working in small groups, they made waterproof shelters for toy soldiers. They then walked around the museum exploring the different exhibits. They had lots of fun!
Science - Children have been learning about different materials and have been identifying objects made of these materials around their class.
