Reading books                           

We will do our best to change your child’s reading book regularly. If your child has finished their book please remind them to take their reading book out of their book bag and put it in the basket. Please try to spend a few minutes each day listening to your child read and remember to sign / comment in their reading record. We will reward regular reading with stickers and golden tickets! We always welcome any grown up helpers who can spare a little time to come in and hear the children read.

Library books

Children can choose a library book to share with you at home. Our library day is a Wednesday. Please ensure your child returns their library book the following Wednesday so they can choose a new one to take home.

 

Homework                                  

Your child will be given a Learning log in which to keep a record of their homework. Homework will be based upon key skills for reading, spelling and maths. These should be practised regularly for a few minutes at a time. Activities to help your child practise the key skills will be updated in their Learning Logs. 

Show and tell

We will do our best to make time on a Friday for children to show or tell anything about their achievements at home, special family events / celebrations, photos, books or anything they have that may be topic related. Please do not bring in any toys to school.

 

PE, and a daily run  

 PE will be on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon. PE kits should be brought in on a Monday and we will send them home on a Friday to be washed. Please could you ensure that all of your child's PE kit and school uniform are named.

Each morning the whole class will be running around the field or playground for 5 minutes to help us feel fit, awake and ready to learn! As we get better at running and quicker with our routines we will increase the distance we run so we can work up towards a daily mile! The children will only need to change into appropriate footwear.

We look forward to a super term ahead. Please remember that we are always here to help so do come and talk to one of us and we will do our very best to help you.
