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. Once decided 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

lessons for this year for Elm will be on Mondays and Thursdays each week and for Hazel they will be on Thursdays and Fridays. As we are limiting the amount of things that are brought into school, 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 be given on Friday in learning logs and will be due in on Wednesdays ready to be marked for the following week.

We will be reviewing our homework procedure over the academic year and any new updates will be communicated with you in advance. 

Spelling

Our spelling scheme is currently being reviewed and improved for this coming academic year. You will receive further information about this soon.

In the meantime we have provided your child with the year 2 common exception words to ensure these are familiar before moving on.

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.

Thank you for your support.
