Home-School Communication

It is sometimes possible to speak briefly at the beginning or end of the school day and this is a great way to share information. For longer discussions I will always endeavour to meet with you at the earliest opportunity.

Your child’s homework diary is a key tool for home-school communication and it is an expectation that children bring it in daily. Homework diaries will be looked at each morning and any messages responded to via Dojo.

We will be planning different types of scientific enquiries to answer questions, including recognising and controlling variables where necessary.

We will also be able to explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes.
