Dear Parents/Carers,

We hope you had a lovely summer break and are ready for the new term. Mrs Filan and I are looking forward to working with you all.  Each week a Chatter Letter will be with your child’s Home Learning letting you know what is going on in Sparrow Class during the coming week. Information will be updated weekly on our Class Blog!

This week we will be:

  • Getting to know each other!
  • Listening to the children read.
  • Children will write about their summer holidays.
  • Assessment and revision of phonics.
  • Assessment of numbers in maths.
  • Introduction of cursive writing.

French will begin from next Tuesday 13th– I would encourage you to speak a few words of French with your children or ask your children to tell you about any new vocabulary they have learned in school.

Home Learning – Year 1&2 – Begins on Monday 12th.

As it is Roald Dahl’s 100th centenary on Tuesday 13th our homework will be Roald Dahl inspired.

Points to note:



·         Homework will start on Monday 12th.  




·         Book Bags are due in.




·         Book Bags & Water Bottles to go home.


·         Book Bags, water bottles and Homework due in (from next week)




·         Book Bags will go out tonight.

When the children receive the “Star of the Week” award they will be able to take home our class mascot called ‘Fuzzy Monk’ on a Friday. Children are asked to include ‘Fuzzy Monk’ in an activity they do over the weekend and write or draw a picture about what they got up to together. I would like ‘Fuzzy Monk’ back in on the Monday to ensure our Star of the Week has a chance to share with the class during our show and tell activity.

My door is always open if you would like a chat.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Miss Kelly!
