My name is Mrs Kaur and I am the teacher in Pandas Class, I also lead key stage 1 and phonics at Hillside.
I believe that 'reading is the key to learning' and 'practice makes perfect'. In Pandas, we also learn about the importance of having a 'growth mindset'. Together, we 'Believe, Achieve and Succeed!'
Our Spring Topic - Man on the Moon
We created these amazing self-portraits before half term. We believe that we are all unique and celebrate our diversity.
In Autumn term, we learned about the Great fire of London and children loved creating these silhouettes as part of their Art and Design curriculum.

Please send your child to school in full PE kit on PE days (Mondays and Fridays) - do not wear school uniform. No jewellery should be worn and children need to follow our PE policy.
Children are expected to read at home each evening and should return their books in good condition. They will also be able to access ebooks online once they are settled.
Basic Skills for reading, writing and maths
Please visit the Phonics area of this website to see some videos showing you how to say the sounds and how to form their letters correctly. You will also find useful information about different phases of phonics.

Online learning and homework for Pandas Class
We use White Rose schemes of work for Maths and set online homework using MyMaths. We also use Active Learn to set online Phonics and Reading activities for our pupils. Due to Covid19 and under new guidance for schools, it is highly likely that homework will be set using online resources in September.
