    Hello again everybody and welcome to a brand new term! All the planning is on Tapestry, as usual,  and Miss Nortcliffe is looking forward to welcoming some of you as you come back to school. It will be lovely for her to meet you in person. As you can see from the Thumbnail, she has been very  busy preparing the classroom for your return.

    The plans will be posted on Tapestry each week, on Monday morning. In the meantime, take care and keep safe!

  • Hello from Miss Nortcliffe

    Published 22/04/20, by Lynsey Nortcliffe

    I wanted to introduce myself and tell you about my life experiences and school history. I have been teaching for 17 years working within Early Years and Year 1. I taught in London for many years and for over the past 7 years I have taught in a private school in Dubai. This was a great life experience, I learnt about living and working abroad and working with expat children. The reason I decided to come home from Dubai was I met my fiance there, he lives in Newbury so this brought me to where I am today. I love teaching and especially outdoor learning.

    I have a great interest in dance and fitness and enjoy horse riding on a weekly basis.

    I am really looking forward to getting to know you all and hopefully we will be back at school soon to get busy learning and having lots of fun.

    I am updating Tapestry with ideas for home and this is where I recommend you visit. I will respond to any posts and questions you have. 

    I have completed a short video about myself. Please look on Tapestry as one of the activities is to draw your family. I would really like to learn about you all, so please have a go if you can.

    I look forward to seeing you all very soon,

    Miss Nortcliffe

    Everyday please choose one from each of the phonics, English and maths activities for the children to complete, either from the attachments below or from activities on Tapestry. These should only take 20-30 minutes each. There is an additional daily activity for the children to choose from and complete which should again only take 20-30 minutes.

    If you have any queries, please use the class email and I will reply as soon as possible. There are additional activities and support on Tapestry.
