Katrin Hall is a freelance artist and creative practitioner who manages Arts Generation, a company that delivers arts workshops and projects in schools and with community groups. She believes that children of all ages and abilities have the right to access purposeful art activities and has worked with Parkside children on a number of projects. The projects range from sculptures and murals to fabric banners and recycled art projects. She also creates beautiful mosaics for restaurants, cafes, schools and individual clients. You may have seen some of her creations around Parkside!





Reading books-

The children will follow the Accelerated Reader Programme and will take

a book home from the classroom library. 
The children will also receive RWI Phonics books.


Maths KIRFs- 

These will be related to year group expectations.

There will be one KIRF sheet every half term.


Spelling words –

These will be related to year group expectations. They will be given out on a Monday and tested the following Monday.


Spelling homework books-

This will support the children with learning their spelling words. Following on from the spelling rule taught in class, the children will be expected to write sentences containing the spelling words. This will be marked in class on a Monday





We have a shared library which has many interesting books. Children are encouraged to use it.





Physical Education takes place twice a week. It is very important that PE kits are kept in school at all times. Please mark each item clearly – that includes plimsolls, as it can quite difficult for your child to find them when they are all changing at once.


School Trips

We have three school trips a year, one each term.


More information about what your child is learning in school can be found on the curriculum map
