Welcome to the Squirrels
Welcome to the Squirrels Class Page
Come and have a look at all the hard work we do and all the fun we have.
I hope you are all keeping well and safe. I am back in school now and I would like to say a big thank you to Chris for looking after you super squirrels for the past 9 months.
I am looking forward to seeing you all again once we are back to normal but for now here are a few activities to keep you busy at home.
If you would like to log into Purple Mash and explore all the activities on offer, we now have a class log in, rather than your individual ones.

We all take part in Taekwondo each week and a swimming session which is a big favourite of ours. We have gained new skills and confidence in the water including floating and kicking our legs!
Home School Diaries
We ask families and carers to return the Home School Diaries each day, as this will enable the class staff 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 the class teacher.
Individual Education Plans
These set out the priority educational targets that your child is working on for the term. IEP's are updated each term and sent home. If there is anything that you would particular like us to be working on please just let us know.
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 style and level of each child. Every Friday, your child will recieve a new reading book and this will be sent home with them to enjoy with you over the weekend. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories and fill in the reading record to let your child's class staff know how they have gotten on and then please return to school on the Monday morning.
Magic Moment Books
Your child will also be sent home a Magic Moments Book. This is an exciting way to share all the wonderful things that your child does at home. Its also a way to record special moments, anything that your child does for the first time and anything that they enjoy doing. We would also love it if you could send the book back in at the end of term or after a holiday so that we could share your child's amazing achievements.
We kindly ask that you send in £2 a week. This contributes to any weekly resources that class might need.
