Welcome to Topaz Class!


March 2021

We are really looking forward to having the children back in school on Monday 8th March. We have missed them terribly and are excited to have the class back together again. We know it hasn't been an easy last couple of months but we hope that having the children back in school will help them to feel more settled. Hopefully we will manage to have a nice last few weeks of this term.

On this page you will find information about what we are learning each week with some links to online activities which will complement our classroom learning.

If you scroll further down, you will also find home learnig activities for your child to complete if they need to self isolate because they or someone else in the family has covid or covid symptoms.

Parent notices...

  • PE is on Mondays and Thursdays. On Mondays, children will need to bring their PE kit to change into and will go home in their PE kit. On Thursdays, children should come to school in their PE kit and will change into their school uniform after the lesson. Children will need outdoor PE kit on both days. It is quite chilly now so please remember to bring warm layers and a change of socks / footwear for afterwards.
  • Remember warm coats, hats and gloves for playtimes please. A change of shoes / boots would be handy to keep your feet warm and dry too.
