Hello everyone and welcome to the Comets homepage!


Welcome back to the second half of the Spring term. I hope your child had an enjoyable first half of this term and has returned to school ready for more fabulous learning! This half term we will focus mainly on addition, doubling, subtraction and halving. We will continue to develop our knowledge of letters and sounds in phonics and begin to apply our knowledge to independent and focus writing. Over the year we will be focusing on an array of topics such as 'Ourselves, Around the World and Mixed up Fairy Tales.' I look forward to seeing you taking part in your child's learning during 'Stay & Play' sessions, if you are able to, this half term.


Please remember, if you have any worries or concerns, feel free to come in for a chat after school or send me a message on class dojo.
