Puffin Class - Spring 2023


Glad to see everyone back after a lovely Christmas break. Hope you are enjoying the Christmas season and didn’t suffer from the colds that seem to be making the rounds. It's good have the children back after all the illness that happened before Christmas and settle down and get on with our learning so well.  Please can all children come in with a water bottle.  This is essential to an efficient brain and as the children know we should only have juice and sweet drinks with our food.


Here is some information that might help with the term ahead:


Contact with me

Thank you for your continued contact using dojo.  It's good to be able to give you information through this and be able to help and support the children through life’s ups and downs. Oh and thank you for your patience when I read the message, life happens and I don’t get back to you for a while.


If you would like to see me or talk with me then please let me know and we can sort something out.



Please encourage your child to read daily, this can include them listening to a story to help develop their story language. Reading books are changed on weekly due to the book they are working on in Read, Write Inc.  It is very important for fluency, confidence and comprehension for a child to read the same book more than once.  If you would like more books than this, please let me know and I will try and arrange this. I will try and look at these regularly so please just write about the books they have read whether they be school books or books from the library or home.


Home Learning

This is through our reading, weekly spellings that are based on the sounds that week and the ixl programme. This can be accessed through google classroom on a Friday afternoon.  However homework should always be reading, phonics practise and practicing their times tables.  


Morning routine

Many thanks to you all for lining up outside my door and being patient with the children that are rubbing the hand gel into their hands or washing their hands. I think after the last couple of months it has shown how important this still is.



Puffin Class usually has PE on a Monday and Thursday. Please can earrings be removed for health and safety reasons. 


Any questions please ask, many thanks.
