Together we care, together we learn and together we grow


Well after an eventful few months, I am so excited to be welcoming you all back to school to start your journey in Year 4. I have had a busy Summer getting the classroom ready after a lot of decorating and renovating but it is finally ready to have a classful of lovely children in!

I hope you have had a really lovely Summer with your families and are excited to finally be back with your friends in school. It has certainly been very quiet without you all at Little Leigh. I know some of you may feel a little unsure of what school will be like but I promise you we will have LOTS of fun! Even more exciting news is that Mrs Clarke will be teaching you on a Friday, whiich I know will be fantastic. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Robinson supporting Year 4 several mornings a week. 

Parents, if at any time you wish to see me, I am more than happy for you to catch me at the end of the school day or if you would prefer, please contact the office so that we can arrange a meeting. 

I shall be documenting our learning using the school Twitter account, @LittleLeighSch, so please make sure you are following us to see all of our wonderful experiences! I will also be 'blogging' some of our activities and exciting learning through the Online Learning Platform. You can access your child's homepage by logging as you did during lockdown. 

Here's to a brilliant year!

The children have two P.E sessions each week; one on a Wednesday and one on a Friday. Children are to come into school in their PE kits for the day - please make sure this is suitable for all weather. We will be going out as much as possible...in all weather!

Girls with long hair should tie it back and all jewellery, including earings, must be removed for P.E, or covered with tape (we cannot provide or apply this)

Forest Schools is also on a Thursday. Children are to come onto school in suitable clothing. Please make sure these are clothes / shoes that you are happy to get dirty and muddy, especially in the winter months!

We will be revealing our class text this week and the children will be using this to focus their guided reading for two sessions a week. Children will be accessing guided reading for the 3 other sessions based on a variety of genres. 

Outside of school, we ask that children are read with 3 times a week. They will have a book in school to read of their pleasing, and can therefore access Bug Club at home as you have done previously. I cannot stress the importance of your child reading at home with you as much as possible. Even listening to an adult read has such a huge impact on children's development.
