Click on the link below for your bespoke Caterpilar Class guided power point with teacher voice over, get to know what we do in class and the ethos behind your child's learning... 

 

 

 

Our topic this term is all about having...

An Attitude of Gratitude!

This is the perfect topic as we head toward the festive period, a cosy and magial time of the year where we will be reflecting on the people and places that are special to us through a timeline of our lives and other special events. This term we study the much celebrated book 'Coming Home' by Michael Morpurgo which famously featured in the Waitrose Advert where a Robin struggles, determined to make it home. We will be getting creative with bird clay sculpture

and Christmas cards with moving parts!

Our Day: Starts at 8.45am and finishes at 3.00pm, please drop off and collect your child from the main school gate.  

Lunch: You can bring a healthy packed lunch with you or order a lunch at school. 

Physical Education (PE): Please come to school dressed in your PE kit every Tuesday so you will be ready for an active afternoon of fun.

You will need: A named water bottle and school uniform, a waterproof coat every day. Please dress appropriately for the weather so we can all go out to play every day! 

Please do not bring in toys as we are minimising the spread of germs and this means as few items as possible between home and school. 

Bring in your yellow diaries and finished books once you have read them at home, this is our indication to change your books for new ones. Thank you. 

 

We will be undertaking weekly skills practice within phonics, writing and maths to recover from the long absence the children have had from school due to the pandemic. Practice is the key!

Find out more about practice and our ethos as a growth-mindset classroom below.

We are a Growth Mindset Classroom.

Growth mindset may be your child's key to success within school and life. Follow this link to watch a TED talk form Professor Dweck on what having a Growth mindset can mean for our children and ourselves as primary carers and role models.  

Oh yes... we even have a song!

We are Positive about Mental Health...

If you are concerned about your child's mental health come and speak to us. It is important our young people know how to have awareness of their own needs physically and mentally with the vocabulary to express themselves. This life-long skill will help them to navigate their childhood and beyond. Like all of us children, at times, may need some help and we are lucky enough to have 'Talk Space' at St Marks for this reason. Please talk to your class teacher, Mrs Stow or Judith directly if you would like to enquire as to spaces with her at Talk Space.

Remember to keep up your and your child's 12 Rocks of well-being

reduce stress and live an enjoyable and fulfilling life...

 

Enjoy this guided medetation to help your child relax, breath deeply and calm their body. There is a great deal of science that suggests many brain boosting benefits to a few minutes of daily calm, focused and quiet time.
