P.E. and Uniform

Our class P.E. lesson this term will be on a Thursday. Your child can leave their PE kit in class and they will bring it home at half term to be washed. Your child will need a t-shirt, shorts, socks, a tracksuit and suitable footwear for PE. Please see the school website for more details. We endeavour to ensure that kit and uniform is not lost but do remember that named clothes are a lot more likely to be returned if they do go walkabout! Please label all of your child’s clothes.

Times Tables

There will be opportunities for children to gain mini superhero certificates for reciting a times table and rapid recall of unordered facts.

Reading

We will continue to encourage children to read 5 to 7 times a week, the children love working their way through the gemstone certificates.  Some children may begin to read to themselves, which is great, but do remember that sharing books together every day allows the opportunity to read aloud and discuss what has been read, this continues to be extremely beneficial for your child’s understanding and confidence. Please write all their reads in the reading record – we love to chat to the children about what they are reading at home.

Letters

Just a reminder that children’s bags are not checked for letters by adults.  Therefore please ensure that reply slips or letters are given directly to the office or to an adult in the class by hand at the door.

Water bottles

Please send in a labelled water bottle with your child every day.  This should contain only water, unless a specific medical need has been discussed with the school.  Children do need water to keep their brain chugging on through the lessons!
