We expect children to read at least 3 times at home to an adult using their individual book they are given which is aimed at their ability. While your child reads you can ask questions provided in the book, discuss meanings of words and help them with any unfamiliar/longer words. Your child will need to read their book 2-3 times to develop fluency and recognise words quicker the next time they come across it. Your child will receive 1 house point if they have rad 3 or more times in 1 week.
Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Children should come to school in their PE kit which consists of black bottoms, a white top and a plain hoody/jumper. Plimsoles are needed and should be kept in school. Please remove jewellery beforehand. We are not able to provide tape for earrings in ears.
Spellings take place every Tuesday afternoon. Your child will receive their next spellings in their spelling books on Thursday but this may sometimes be earlier. Your child can practise their spellings using Spelling Shed (logins have been given) or they can practise on spare paper at home with your help and guidance using the spelling list provided in the book. If you have any problems logging in or any queries, please come and speak to the class teacher. If your child gets most of the spellings correct, they will receive 1 house point at the end of the week.
Our library day is every Monday. Your child can visit the library and choose a book to take home for the week. These books can sometimes be harder to read so having an adult read the book is an ideal way to enjoy reading together. Please keep these in bookbags as any missing books may incur a charge.
Our classrooms have limited space therefore we expect children to come to school with a book bag which is a perfect size to fit in trays provided in the classroom.
