Most of you will know Mrs Ratcliffe as the teaching assistant in our Nursery. Mrs Ratcliffe has been working in the nursery at St George's for over 40 years !! That is a fantastic achievement and I' m sure she has seen lots of changes in that time. However she has decided to retire and so next week will be her last week working with us. We will be very sad to see her go, but she will still be helping with the Stay and Play group and the Friday ladies group.
In the current situation we can't do a big celebration and send off as we would have liked to do, but we will do something for her later in the year.
If any of you would like to send a message or card or anything at all into school for Mrs Ratcliffe, we will ensure she gets them by the end of next week. I'm sure lots of you and your children will have very fond memories of Mrs Ratcliffe and will want to wish her well in her retirement.
By now you should have all recieved your learing packs! On the inside cover you will find your child's Purple Mash Log in and Password details. I have now put some learning on there for your child to complete!
At the top of the page you will see a red tick tick which says TO DO! The children can do these tasks in any order!
Again ... please contact me if you need anything!

Practice Your Tricky Words!
We call words "tricky" when they can't be sounded out - you can't use your phonics to work out what they say!
There are lots of songs on YouTube to help practice them!
