Our schools are minimising the number of visitors they receive, as well as the amount of time visitors spend on the school premises, during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. This will help to minimise group mixing and make it easier to maintain social distancing in school.
We expect all visitors to: 1. only visit the school premises if absolutely necessary. Please phone instead, request a call or request an online meeting if possible. 2. not enter the premises if you or any members of your household have symptoms of coronavirus. 3. clean your hands with alcohol gel (provided) when you enter and leave the building. 4. follow the same procedures as those in place for staff, ie social distancing (2m), avoid touching surfaces and do not enter areas of the school without the permission of staff.
Thank you for your support in keeping our pupils, staff and families safe.
fun and learning! We love learning and finding out new things. Part of our Seal Class ethos is to support each other, respect those around us and challenge ourselves. Keep an eye on our page to see what exciting learning we have been doing in Seal Class! We are going to have a really great year!
Please read the following document for information on the Phonics Screening Check that will take place at the end of November. We have been working with the children to best prepare them for this check and this is something they are now familiar with as part of their day-to-day phonics learning. The Phonics Screening Check will be carried out in a supportive, stress-free way for the children with their class teacher. There will even be a reward for each child too!
Remember to follow us on Twitter to find out what we are up to!
We update this regularly with lots of exciting learning.
For the foreseeable future, the children will not have a 'contact book' so please feel free to contact me via Twitter. You can do this by 'tweeting' on the class page or through a private message which will be sent directly to my inbox.
If you do not have a Twitter account, you can contact me through my school e-mail:

Common Exception words
We are continuing to focus on learning to read and spell all of the Year 1 and 2 common exception words by the end of the school year. We practise these regularly at school, find ways to remember these spellings and practise using them within our reading and writing.
At the end of each half term, we send home the next 10 Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words that each child needs to learn to read and write. These are practised at school but here are some ways you can practise these at home too!
