Welcome to Elf Class!

Spring Term 1 - Terrific Transport

We hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and the children are ready for lots more fun as we launch in to the Spring term in Elf Class!

 

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to Jacob, Aston, Georgia, Ellie, Freya and Rory, our new starters this term. We hope you will be very happy with us 😊

 

This half-term we will be learning all about ‘Terrific Transport’.  As always, we have lots of amazing learning opportunities planned!

                                                                                                           

Don’t forget that we are now able to offer a hot school dinner to children in Elf class. This is available for children who are with us for the full day and already stay for lunch club. Just let us know, when you arrive in the morning, if you would like to order a dinner for that day. You should have already received a letter giving details of how to sign up for a Squid account (cashless payment system for dinners). If you have not received this letter, please let us know.

 

 

Reminders:

  • Snack money is 10p per session and should  be handed in to a member of staff in Elf Class, in a clearly labelled envelope, please. This also covers the cost of ingredients for baking.
  • We encourage children to bring their own water bottle in to class. Please ensure this is clearly named and is filled with water only (no juice please as this is very sticky if it spills!)
  • Please ensure all clothing is named.
  • Please make sure your child has a bag of spare clothes on their peg.
  • Please ensure that your child has a pair of wellies, in school, at all times. 
  • Please ensure your child wears a suitable coat and brings a hat, scarf and gloves to school as we go outside in all weathers!

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. You can contact us on the following email addresses (please send to BOTH addresses as we are a job share and may take longer to reply if only one of us has received the email)
