Phonics Screening PowerPoint
From 29.9.21 Phonics evening
Every year group in our school learns about a different country. By the end of year 6, the children have complied a Passport to the World containing the learning they have done about each country. In year 1, our class country is India. We learn a lot about India through our topics.

PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economics education)
PSHE education in school is promoted through our wide and varied curriculum which is carefully planned to enhance the children’s personal, social, emotional and economic development.
At Golcar J, I & N School, we use the PSHE Association’s three core themes: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. These three themes form part of a developmental, spiral curriculum. This means that the same key principles are revisited each year but are taken a step further to build upon the children’s knowledge and understanding. They permeate school life and are discussed regularly in assemblies and lessons, forming part of our day to day vocabulary.
This half term's PSHE learning
Our PSHE theme for the Autumn term is Relationships.
The theme for the Spring term is Living in the Wider World.
In case of self- isolation, please find all of our remote learning lessons and resources on your child's Class Dojo portfolio. This mirrors what children will be learning in school.
Newsletters 2021 - 22
Year group newsletters are written each half term and contain information about current learning, reminders, how to support your child's learning at home and key dates. The newsletters are sent out via email, are uploaded to our Class Dojo class stories and can be viewed by clicking the links below.

Please make sure all kit is clearly labelled with your child's name. For safety reasons, if your child has pierced ears, please try and remove earrings on their PE days or ensure small studs are worn which can be taped over. Kit will be sent home for a wash at the end of every term.
Book Changing Day:
Books are changed throughout the week. Please make sure all library books and reading books are in school everyday so then they won't get missed.
