Term 1

This term and next term our Global Learning Theme is Identity and Diversity.  From now until Christmas we will be looking at diversity.   



What could I do to help at home?

Potter and Bowie 






  • talk about family traditions (e.g. how you celebrate birthdays in your house, things that you like to do together etc)
  • practise new sounds and tricky words in your phonics books
  • use number names and counting in your everyday conversations (e.g. let's see how many cars are parked on the road outside our house)



What can you do with your child at home?

Have a go the suggested activities sent home on the 'what we have been learning about' sheet.  You can share these with us using Seesaw.  

We also expect children to share a book at home.  Each day that they do this, they will get a house point.  You should aim to read together every day. 


  • Please check your child’s PE bag has trainers/PE shoes as we do go outside for PE.
  • Please name all your child’s clothes and shoes including hats, scarves and gloves.
  • Please provide your child with a pair of wellies and some waterproof clothing.
  • Please tick/ write a comment if you have shared the story at home and then we can change the book with your child.

Contacting the teachers

Please use the Seesaw messaging service or speak to us at the beginning/end of the day if you'd like us to know something.  If you'd like a longer chat, we can arrange a meeting for a better time.

Learning Journey - Seesaw

You will be given a letter with a QR code on your child's first day.  Up to ten family members can use the QR code to follow each child.  This will give you access to your child's online profile. Please still send pictures, writing, photographs that have been done at home to go into their profile - you can do this by clicking on the '+' button in the messaging part of the app. Please make an appointment to see your child's class teacher if you would like help with Seesaw.

You will have two parents’ evenings to discuss your child’s learning.  You will also receive one report (July). All of these will keep you informed about your child’s progress.
