Homerton Weekly Bulletin January 21st 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

Goldilocks and the Three Bears is this half term’s core book and the children are busy acting out the story as well as enjoying making and eating lots of porridge with different toppings.

The children will also be getting to know a variety of other ‘Once Upon a Time’, stories this half term. The structure of these simple tales helps children learn about how to write their own stories which staff are scribing for them.

If you would like to find out about how children start to write themselves then please do come along to this week’s Writing Workshops on Wednesday– see below for more information.

A couple requests from us are:-

If your child is not feeling well in the morning please try to find a way to keep them at home in order to reduce the spread of illnesses within classes.

Please phone the office by 10am if your child is coming in later in the morning and needs a lunch.

Thank you to all those parents who park further away and walk rather than parking on our yellow lines. The lines are there to keep all the children safe when crossing the road.

Please remember to sign up for parent consultations which are coming up shortly and are a great opportunity to hear about your child’s progress and achievements here at Homerton as well as to discuss any concerns you may have about your child.
