Welcome to Marvel Class.
This term our topic is 'Me and my community'. We will be learning about how we are all unique and special, the importance of friendship and how people in their family, school and local community are important and can help them.
This year you will be taught by Miss Westlake with Mrs Clarke as your teaching assistant. We cannot wait to see you all!
The children will be offered fruit and milk in the morning. We will have another snack time in the afternoon, if you want your child to have an afternoon snack can you please put some fruit in their bag. Thank you :)
Children will be bringing Home Learning on a Friday. It will be an activity that you can do with your child linked to the learning we have have completed in school.
We will send home a book for you to share with your child on a Friday/ Take time to share the book with your child asking questions about the story. This is a very valuable time encouraging children to further develop their love of books.
Please remember if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
