Welcome to Nightingales
Week commencing: Monday 19th of October
Welcome to our class page! There are eight children in Nightingales and two adults in our class. Our class teacher is Mrs Clarke and our teaching assistant is Mrs Byrne.
Please visit our class page regularly to see what we are up to!
Our Christian value this term is generosity.
Everyday the children participate in outdoor learning, where they have the opportunity to discover, experiment, learn about and connect to the natural world, as well as engage in a variety of outdoor and adventure activities.
We recommend that the children keep a pair of wellies and a waterproof jacket in school, which they can slip on before going outside to keep themselves dry and warm.
Also the children are more than welcome to keep a spare set of clothes in school, in case they become muddy or wet whilst having
fun exploring the water tray or mud kitchen!

Home Learning Activities

Due in: Friday 6th November
You will notice in the front of your child’s partnership diary, there are two sets of login details. These are for purple mash and reading eggs. These are for use should your child be out of school due to having to self-isolate or in the event of a local or national lockdown where the school is forced to close. However, it is good idea to have a go with your child prior to these times, to familiarise them with the setup and to check all login details are fully working. The children have had the opportunity in class to have a look at the reading eggs app and they all thoroughly enjoyed exploring the activities available.
