Welcome to Community 1


Welcome to 2018!


I hope you all had a relaxing holiday break and enjoyed the sunny, warm weather we’ve had.

I am looking forward to a busy start to the year and getting stuck in with the Year 6s for their final year of Primary School. We will be swimming every day for the first 6 weeks to prepare for swimming sports.

Home Learning

Our aim is to equip our students to be inquiring, self-motivated learners. Our policy is not to set compulsory Home Learning however we strongly encourage daily opportunities to practice Reading, Writing and Mathematics at home. We also encourage you to talk to your child about their learning. We encourage participation in authentic learning opportunities in the wider community, e.g., sports and cultural team activities. in line with this, Home Learning in Com 1 will this year be in the form of any work that your child has not completed in class. If your child has work to complete from the day this will be sent home with your child and an email will be sent to inform you that work is coming home.
