Entry / Exit from School:
Our class will enter the school from the side gate on Carlisle Road between 8:45am-8:50am. Parents and Carers drop off and collect their child at the doors parallel to Carlisle Road (the door to the left as you come into the playground). You may then follow around into the Year 1 playground and exit through the gate at the bottom of the playground which leads to the ginnel. Please turn right and follow the one way system in the ginnel. End of school day 3:15pm.

Otters' Latest Learning!
Newsletters and Information for Parents and Carers
Please find our latest newsletters and information for parents and carers in the folders below. The KIRF targets are 'Key Instant Recall Facts' in Maths. They focus on basic mental Maths recall skills to support the children in increasing their speed and accuracy of mental calculation. Please support your child at home to learn their KIRF Targets. These are changed each half-term and feed into our Maths learning in school. Please also find below the Year 1 and Year 2 Common Exception Words. These are words which don't follow a spelling rule or pattern and many of which phonics won't apply to. Please support your child to learn the Common Exception Words at home.
Our Online Resources
Down below you will find the range of different online resources your child can access at home. Logins have been sent home with your child for these so please encourage them to log on and have a go as often as possible. Sometimes the children's homework will be set on these platforms so please keep a look out for added tasks.
As you will be aware, Year 2 will be taking their Phonics Screening check in Autumn 2 (date TBC). To best support your child with this, we are continuing with Phonics teaching in school and encourage the continuation of Phonics learning at home. To enable parents/carers to do so, we have a Phonics page set up on our school website that is full of guidance and resources to be used. The link for the page is below, we hope you find it useful!
If you are having to isolate at home but are well, we have created a home-learning page to support parents/carers and children.
Please follow the link below to access your home learning activities! Remember to keep in touch with your class teacher via the Key Stage 1 email firstname.lastname@example.org
