PE: coach%20clipart

 Please could you make sure that your children's PE kit (including daps) is in school all week. The class have PE lessons every Thursday with the sports coach.


 Reception children:

 Please continue to share books with your children. Encourage them to talk about what they see and what they think will happen next as this will show an understanding of the story and start them thinking about sequence of events.

All Reception children have a year 6 buddy reader who they read with every week. They are wonderful role models for the children and really encourage talk about the books they are looking at.

Year 1 children:

Spellings are given out within their homework books on a Friday. The children will be tested on a Friday morning. These words need to be practiced and learnt at home. Use as many different strategies as you would like to learn them, for example, rainbow writing, sparkler writing, bubble writing. These words need to be embedded and consolidated therefore seeing the words within their writing.


Please could you make sure your child's reading book and reading record is in school every day as we aim to listen to all the children read every week. All books will be changed every Monday! Parent helpers come in to listen to the children read on a Monday and Thursday.
