Welcome to Panda Class Website!

Hello Pandas!

We hope you all had a fantastic summer holiday and are excited as we are about being back at school. We are really excited to get to know you all better and for all the fantastic things we will be learning this year.

Here are a few reminders/notices :

  • Please ensure all uniform and belongings are clearly labelled to ensure they do not get lost/muddled.

  • P.E. day is Wednesday. In order to support and encourage independence children will be returning to changing for PE in school. As such all children must have a full PE kit which can be kept in school. PE uniform is a Holy Trinity light blue t-shirt and dark coloured shorts. Children are welcome to wear jogging bottoms, please can these be plain navy or black. Please ensure that on Wednesdays hair is tied back and earrings removed.

  • We will be sending home Homework grids in the first couple of weeks with a number of activities which support your learning, we encourage you to choose one activity per week and will check homework and award stamps and raffle tickets for all homework completed on a Wednesday.

  • In addition to homework, we continue to encourage reading as much as possible at home to help build their confidence and fluency. There is an expectation that children read at least 3 times a week at home. Each time a child reads/ practices their phonics they will receive a raffle ticket. Each child that reads a minimum of 3 times a week will also receive a whole school raffle ticket. Each time a child reads they will also contribute to the class reward system.

If you have any questions at any time, please catch us on the door in the mornings or after school, write a note in the communication diary or email us at nnethersole@holytrinityhalstead.com/ lking@holytrinityhalstead.com - please include us both in emails.

We can't wait to see you all very soon.

Mrs Nethersole and Mrs King.
