MEET THE TEAM
This is the Seahorse Team. Mrs Mabbott works at the start of the week (Mon-Wed) and Mrs Hamer finishes off the week (Thur-Fri).
We are supported by our fantastic Teaching Assistants Mrs Littlefair and
Miss Willmott, who work all week.

Our new topic is ...

We will focus on a book each week and ask the following questions.....
Snow White-How can we eat healthily?
Beauty and the Beast -Can something that looks different be nice?
Peter Pan -Why is it important to follow rules?
Alladin-Why should we excercise?

Remember to use our fantastic Reading and Mathematics resources. Log in using your child's log in and get going.
The log in is the same for both MathSeeds and Reading Eggs.
Home Learning- How will it work?
There will be 5 learning tasks set for English and Maths, plus a selection of afternoon ideas. Please don't worry if you donot complete all of the tasks. These will be sent out on our Dojo Class Story page every Friday.
When you child has completed their learning activity, please send a photography via Tapestry. We can then see the fantastic learning that your child is doing! We will then reward your child with Dojo points!

WHISPER - Anonymous Reporting Tool
Sometimes it is really hard to tell an adult if you feel like you are being bullied. That is why we have subscribed to WHISPER. It is an anonymous reporting tool which allows you or your child to report any incidents of bullying and cyber bullying in confidence.
Click on the web link below to fill in a report. It will then be emailed to Miss Hughes (Online Safety Coordinator). Messages are checked as often as possible. In order to resolve issues effectively and promptly, please include your name. This will be kept in the strictest of confidence.
If you have any concerns or worries about your child regarding online safety and would like further advice, please contact Miss Hughes or Mr Lyons, the school's online safety co-ordinators or speak to Mrs Dainty, Headteacher.
