Our PE days are Monday’s and Thursday’s. Please send children to school on this day wearing their full PE kit as well as their school jumper. As a reminder, school PE kit consists of:
- White t-shirt or polo shirt
- Black shorts, tracksuit / jogging bottoms or leggings
- Trainers or pumps
- No football kits, hoodies, non-uniform jumpers or open-toed footwear please
Children will remain in their PE kit all day and will still play out at play-times so please dress appropriately and consider the weather on the day.
We will hear children read throughout the week. Each child will read to us at least once a week. We will change their reading books on a Monday and Thursday. They must be signed 3 times before they are changed, this is to improve their confidence and fluency and help them to make faster progress. Their reading book is carefully matched to their phonics ability. Please do not worry if your child finds their reading book easy - they are supposed to! We request that you spend at least 10 minutes a day listening to your child read at home. This is essential to support their progress in all areas of their learning.
Each child will receive home learning. This will usually consist of literacy and maths but could be replaced with a project, research or other task relating to a 'topic' area. This will be given out on a Wednesday and should be returned by Monday. If you have any questions about your child's home learning, please speak to a member of our class team.
