Acorns 2018 - 2019

Miss Daniels

I am delighted to be teaching at Whitegate C of E Primary School teaching Acorns and being part of the school community. This is my second year of teaching and I love being part of each child's learning journey. My passion is making learning exciting and enjoyable for all children. Outside of school I like to spend time with my family and 'try' to keep fit.

Summer Term 2018

A very big welcome back to school after the Easter break. I hope you all have had an enjoyable holiday and are ready for another fun filled Summer Term. 

This term we will be exploring a variety of Traditional Tales. The children will learn about different traditional fairy tales and explore the different characters in each story. Our Literacy and Maths work will be linked to these stories. 

Important information 

Reading daily is extremely important so there will be reading challenges and prizes to be won each week! Please could you read with your child every day (even if it is just a couple of pages). 

Please could you ensure that your child has a water bottle and P.E. kit in school every day and that all uniform is clearly named. 

As always, please do not hesitate ask us if you have any queries or need further information.

From The Acorns Team,

Miss Daniels, Miss Barlow, Miss Weedall and Mrs Jackson
