Book Bags: Please ensure that the children bring their book bag to school every day, as in addition to being a means of transporting reading materials it is a valuable method of communication. We encourage the children to give important notes from their parents directly to their class teacher or teaching assistant.
Uniform: Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child’s name. Children will need their P.E. kits in school on PE days. Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please encourage children to be independent dressers at home, as these skills will be helpful at school.
Reading: We change the children’s reading books daily, so if they have finished their book please ensure that the children put their home reading record and reading book in the basket every morning to be changed. Please support your child with reading at home.
Phonics: The Phonics scheme we follow is Read, Write, Inc. Please read and practise your sounds and spellings with your child at home. Please see below.
Handwriting: Please look at the letters sheet attached to see how we write each letter. We would recommend that you use this sheet to help your child when he/ she is completing any written work at home.
Homework: Homework will be set every Friday (published in our class blog). Please return completed homework to school by the following Monday. Please see below.
Learning: Next week is our Inclusion Week. Our main topic is ‘All About Us’. Children will complete a variety of activities.
Next week in Literacy we will be writing friendship letters and creating a class book on all about me.
