Welcome to Hedgehog Class.
Spring Term 2
The term has started with some exciting events: The Railway Children performance at the Village Hall and a special Dinosaur Day to kick off our topic. This week we are looking forward to joining with the rest of the school for World Book Day. We have not held a whole school event for over two years, so it will be wonderful to have everyone working together again. One of the best things about Corringham School is how the older children support those younger than themselves. You are invited to dress up as a favourite book character for the day and will take part in eight different activities, all relating to four stories chosen by the teachers.

Please make sure you bring a coat to school every day, along with a water bottle. We continue to wash and sanitise hands regularly throughout the day to keep germs at bay, and have already noticed a much reduced number of coughs and colds. PE will take place on Tuesday and Thursday, with some children continuing to swim on Thursday. Please wear your PE kits on these days (even if you are swimming).
Homework will continue to be set weekly and should be handed in by Thursday. You should also complete a book review each week, practise spellings and multiplication tables.
Occasionally, you may need to isolate at home due to COVID. If this is the case, please ask your parent or carer to email me on: Janice.email@example.com so that we can arrange home learning for you. You do not need to participate in home learning if you feel unwell.

Some of the fun events that took place last year:
Our science topic ‘States of Matter’ was enhanced by a visit from a STEM Ambassador, who spent an afternoon with us. We also visited Eureka! and took part in a coding activity.
Our World Book Day Celebrations also took place during the term, with the whole school joining in a series of activities about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Harry Potter, Peter Rabbit and the poetry book, Heard it on the Playground.
