Mrs Waddington, Mrs Burrows, Mrs Rigby and Miss Gandera
In the mornings, Mrs Waddington is your class teacher and Mrs Burrows is your teacher in the afternoons. Mrs Rigby and Miss Gandera are our teaching assistants.
We have PE ON Thursday but please make sure your child's kit is in school and clearly labelled with your child's full name on. In addition, the children will have daily access to our outdoor provision so a coat must always be available each day.
Our Reading books are changed every Wednesday. At the beginning of the year children are given books with no words. This is to develop an understanding of books and to give opportunities to share other books and stories with the children. However we encourage children to bring their book-bags every day as we have lots of helpers who like to listen to children read.
Children in class will bring home a Home School Link Book. In this the children will be set small learning tasks to complete with you at home. We encourage you to leave comments about how they get on and any other comments about achievements at home. This information can be added to our assessments. We welcome this communication.
We aim to create a curriculum that responds to our children's needs and so therefore it is difficult to map out a set curriculum for the year. We plan based on interests, relevant events and gaps in learning. Topics and areas of learning will be communicated through the Home School Book.
We use websites such as Phonics Play and Teach Your Monster to Read, as well as resources from Floppy Phonics and Oxford Owl, to support children when teaching phonics and reading.
If you have any questions regarding the curriculum your child is being taught, please contact school.
At Our Lady's we are always pleased to meet our parents, we will be available to talk to you any day before 8.45am and after school. If you would like us to ring you please leave a message at the school office.
