Happy New Year and welcome to 2021! I really do hope you have all had a lovely Christmas (as best as possible!) and enjoyed the time together. I can't wait to hear all about the festivities the children have been up to and although it may not have been a Christmas as normal, I'm sure it was a lovely Christmas all the same. I'm sure that you all, like me, are ready to get back to some sort of routine and order!

Parents, if at any time you wish to see me, feel free to send a message in through the @admin email or log onto DB primary and email me there. I check the platform on a daily basis and will do my best to respond within 24 hours. 

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. 


Thanks again for all of your continued support. Lets get 2021 started!

We will be continuing with our 'potions' theme for the next two weeks to finish our own potion designs and bottles, as well as our main piece of writing. As soon as these our finished, they will be displayed in our classroom. I will make sure I send a photo via PING for you all to see :-)

We will then be starting our next theme of....


Children iare set the following homework in Year 4: 

Spellings (on a weekly basis set on Spelling Shed)

Times Tables - (on a weekly basis set on TT Rocks)

I do check the accounts on a weekly basis and encourage the children to take responsibility to log on to complete their homework.

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 every other Thursday. Children are to come onto school in suitable clothing. Please make sure that children bring in wellies to get changed into as our carpet is looking very muddy at the moment!

The children have thoroughly enjoyed the two class texts we have read so far. Anisha, the Accidental Detective, and Anisha Schools Cancelled have been very popular with the children! We have loved every minute! 

Children will be accessing guided reading for the 3 other sessions based on a variety of genres. The whole class reading has inspired lots of children to engage in texts they would not normally access. We have recently taken a library delivery of books from Guy Basis, Jill Murphy, Harriett Muncaster and Pamela Butchard, 

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 one at home to read with you. 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.
