Welcome to Class 8

Class Teacher - Mrs Monteiro / Mrs Nel

Support Staff - Mrs Parkins 




Reading with your child is one of the most important skills and a big focus for our school unfortunately due to the current situation we won’t be able to send reading books home.  We listen to individual readers weekly and have daily guided group reading sessions.  Please remember to use the online Oxford Owl website to access lots of e-books at home. 


Fruit Snack

You can bring your own healthy snack (fruit or vegetable sticks) to school to eat at playtime. 



Weekly spellings will be uploaded to Class dojo for you to learn at home. Once the children have completed their homework please send a photograph of their work uploaded to their portfolio and they'll receive extra homework dojo points!
