Welcome to Bold Beginnings


A welcome back to all our children in the Bold Beginnings unit.

We hope all of our children and families have had a lovely Christmas break.

The team in our unit this term:  Mrs Whitwam and Miss Bianchi are the class teachers. Mrs Whitwam is a member of the senior leadership team, as well as Special Needs Coordinator and Deputy Safeguarding Lead.  Miss Bianchi is responsible for Maths leadership throughout the school. They are supported by a fantastic team of support staff.  These are Miss Eatherley, Mr Hanlon, Miss Robinson, Mrs Holgate, Mrs Dean and Mrs Hoyle.

Please feel free to speak to a member of staff if you have any concerns or questions.


Our topic - Spring Term 1

This half term our topic is 'Splendid Skies'. This is a science-based topic which explores weather patterns, seasons and extreme weather.   We are looking forward to making and flying kites in Design &Technology, and exploring the four different seasons. Look out for the curriculum information leaflet in your child's book bag.

You can help your child at home by talking about the weather each day, watching the weather forecast on the news and perhaps keep a weather diary.



Throughout school we follow the White Rose Hub maths planning, which is based upon the National Curriculum and encourages a mastery approach to learning. Please find below the overviews for Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 maths. 


Years 1 & 2 Maths homework will be sent home each Thursday, to be returned the following Wednesday.  Reading books will be changed when completed.  Please make a note of this in your child's reading record.

Reception children have a sound book, these will be updated each week with the new sounds they have learnt in phonics.
