We advise children to read 3 or more times a week with an adult at home. Please date and sign your child’s diary each time you have heard them read. If by Friday your child has read 3 or more times, they will receive 1 house point. This does not need to be 3 books. In KS1 this year we recommend children read each book twice. The first time, children can focus on decoding the book to read. The second time children should answer comprehension questions linked to the book. They could talk about what they have read, make predictions what could happen next, discuss the vocabulary, or talk about their own opinion of the book. It is vital children understand what it is that they have read.
PE will be on Wednesday and Thursday. Your child must come to school in their PE kit. Please make sure all jewellery is removed and hair is tied back. We can’t provide your child with tape to cover their earrings in ears.
Please ensure your child brings a book bag into school. Our classrooms have limited space and rucksacks or backpacks can lead to trips and falls as we do not have enough space in the cloakrooms to store lots of them. Children have their own labelled drawer which is a perfect size for a book bag.
Spelling tests will take place every Friday. Children will then be given next weeks spellings to learn for the following week.
Library Children will visit the library every Tuesday. They will be allowed to choose one book to take home for the week to return the following week. If they do not return their library book they will be unable to choose a new book.
