How you can help your child with their learning:

  • Use the Knowledge Organiser (at the bottom of this page) to help your child learn the information we are exploring.
  • Discuss the school day with your child – ask them what they’ve been learning about.
  • Hear you child read EVERY DAY so they can keep earning merit points!
  • Ensure your child has all the equipment they will need in school each day (especially their Reading Record, PE kit, water bottle and welly boots!)
  • Follow the class Twitter feed for regular updates about our learning: @nectony1 


Other things to remember:

  • P.E. dates have changed this term - P.E. will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
  • Please ensure that earrings are removed for P.E. or taped up before arriving at school.
  • We now have Forest school every Monday afternoon. Children need to ensure that they have appropriate clothing for all types of weather as we will be going out come rain or snow!
