Reading

We are in the process of assessing the children's reading to ensure that they are placed on the correct level of the reading scheme. Your child will be provided with a communication book (Fish Book) and 2 reading books of the correct level. The children will be responsible for changing their reading books and will be given a set day to do this. This day will be written in their Fish book to ensure you are aware of when your children should be bringing their reading books to school.

PE

PE lessons this year for both classes will be Tuesdays and Fridays. Due to the success of the child attending in PE kit last year, the children are to come to school dressed in PE kit on these days. Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather as most PE sessions will be taking place outside. Could you please ensure that any long hair is tied back and earrings are removed.

Homework

Homework will now be assigned via Google Classroom. At the beginning of each half term there will be enough tasks uploaded for your child to complete 1 per week. Your child will be provided with a Green Learning Log to complete their work if they would like. It would be great if pictures of all work could be uploaded to the Google Classroom for the teacher to see and comment on. Children will be awarded Dojo points for completed work.

Spelling

Your Child’s spelling knowledge has been assessed and their relevant spellings will now be uploaded to the Google Classroom weekly. The children can use the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check sheet provided to practise them or use their Green Learning Log to practise them in other ways such as writing them in a sentence or mini tests.

Art & DT

During Art and DT sessions the children will often engage in messy activities therefore could you please provide your child with an old named art shirt to be left in school for these occasions.
