Welcome to Thames
We ask parents and carers to return the home / school diary each day, as this will enable the class teacher to provide comments and information about your child’s day in school. If there are particular things you wish to be informed about, please speak with me. Please send in £2.00 per week class funds with your child, this helps to cover the costs of daily drinks and snacks and cookery ingredients.
Individual Education Plan (IEP's)
This plan sets out educational targets that your child is working on for the term. Plans are updated each term and sent home, this are targets that are focused on weekly and sometimes daily.
All children and young people are encouraged to engage in reading and develop a love of stories. We have a wide range of reading books, sensory books and big books to support the learning styles and levels for each child. Every Friday, your child will bring a reading book home. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories and ask them questions to support their understanding.
Some pupils will receive homework in English and Maths to support their learning. If your child is finding homework a challenge please come into school so we can discuss it together. Your child may also be set some homework tasks based online using a site called 'Purple Mash'.
This Autumn term, some of the things we are looking at:
- Literacy –

- Kirkstone shops
- Balls Wood Park
- Scrummies Cafe
- The FACT cinema
- Marian Square Shops
- Local Supermarkets

Your child will be learning how to access these places and giving them life skills that they can continue to practise in school or at home. They will also be following targets set by the teacher to ensure they can gain modules for ASDAN accreditation.
