Spring Overview


In Thistle class, we enjoy learning in the classroom and outside so coats are needed all year round. Children are to have both indoor and outdoor P.E kits which are left in school or brought in on the correct days. We take part in PE activities on a Wednesday and Thursday each week.


Your child will be set home learning activities weekly. This will be given out on Monday and is due in on Friday unless otherwise stated. Children should be reading every day at home and practising their times tables on a daily basis as they will be tested weekly. Times tables are essential to developing their numeracy, rapid recall of their times tables will enable them to access the numeracy curriculum with more ease. Thistle class have a weekly spelling test on a Tuesday Morning and get their new spellings the same day.


If you would like to talk about anything further, please feel free to contact Miss Baxter.
