Welcome to Class 11! Our teacher is Miss Brislen, our Learning Support Assistants are Mr Debbazi and Mrs Bell.

Home Learning During Absence

If your child is absent from school, please find below a variety of resources to support home learning across the curriculum. Some of these suggest printing but most can be completed on paper. (For example, with the art shading activities, instead of printing, you can just copy and draw your own objects to shade.)

Important information for parents:

We expect your child to have their reading diary in and signed at least four times a week. Reading is extremely important and we want everyone to achieve.

Homework projects are set throughout the year. Children are also encouraged to use their account on TT Rock Stars to master their times tables.

Children will need their PE kits every Friday. 

Here is an overview of what we will be learning this year.  Please visit our curriculum pages for a more detailed look at the Northcote Curriculum.

Extra Information:

Please see our curriculum pages for more information about what your child will be learning in the different areas of the curriculum this year.

If parents or carers ever want to discuss anything regarding their child’s happiness and/or progress, never hesitate to speak to Miss Brislen or Mr Debbazi. We also check diaries daily, so can address any concerns you may have in this way, if you do not get chance to catch us!
