Mrs Hawes (1B) and Miss Staniszewska(1Y) are supported by Miss Hudson, Mrs Steadman, Miss Miranda and Mrs Harvey.
At St. Helen’s we are committed to developing the whole child through a broad and balanced curriculum. We ensure that we cover all areas of the National Curriculum.
Supporting Learning at Home
We recognise the extremely important role that parents play in their child’s education. We want to work in partnership to help parents develop their skills supporting their child’s learning at home. If parents would like any support with developing home learning please see Mrs Hawes and Miss Staniszewska.
Every week we change the children’s home reading books, as well as sending home spellings and homework for the children to learn and complete, please help support your child to try their best.
