Introducing Mouse Club
Mouse Club is a project devised by the National Parental Network to help staff in schools to build positive relationships with families as their child starts school. It can help parents to understand how they can help their child get ready for and settle into schools.
However schools who are already running Mouse Club have reported how it has helped to improve emotional well being and to reduce stress.
As some of our children have been away from school since March, we are very aware that returning to school in September maybe a huge cause of anxiety and upset for them. So we have decided to run Mouse Club not only for our new starters but also for our children who will be returning to school in September as Key Stage One children.
Our mice have now arrived in school and so over the next two weeks a member of the team will be delivering your child's Mouse Club packs to them. These will contain a message from Maurice, Class One's Mouse, a booklet of activities for you, your child and Mouse to complete and of course your child's toy mouse.
Below I have uploaded a powerpoint presentation to explain some principles of Mouse Club and some pdf documents with further information about the project and the activity cards.
We hope that you and your child will enjoy Mouse Club over the holidays and also when we return to school in September.

Summer Term One Week 3
Hi Class Two! I hope you have had a good week working at home. What a shame the lovely sunshine has abandoned us. Fingers crossed it comes back next week. I have uploaded some Phonics and Spellings tasks for you to try. Don't forget that you can use Spelling Shed to practise the spellings. If your login is not working please just email me and I will sort it for you. I have also attached some English tasks related to the Class One book of the week. The reading comprehension all about growing beans is below for you to download. Also the wonderful Mrs Oates has uploaded a video telling you a story about a mystery star. Below the video I have added some tasks that you could do after watching the video. I hope you have managed to have a look at the Oxford Owl page for lots of fantastic ebooks to read.
If you would like to share any of your work, I can upload photographs onto this class page, just email them to me.
Have a lovely weekend and stay safe! Mrs Curtis
