PE - Our PE lessons will take place on a Thursday and Friday. Please ensure that your child comes to school in appropriate PE kits on those days. Our school PE kit is black shorts or joggers/leggings, a plain white t- shirt and trainers for this autumn term. We ask that other gym wear and football shirts are not worn.
Drinks and snacks - Please can all children bring a labelled, filled water bottle into school daily. Snack is now being provided by the Government so children do not need to bring a snack into school with them each day.
Seesaw - Seesaw is great resource that we use to communicate with each other and share lots of useful information. Sometimes, photos of your child's brilliant learning will be shared with you on Seesaw. You are also welcome to message me through the app and I will get back to you ASAP.
Reading - To encourage independence, children will be responsible for changing their own reading books. There is no specific day for children to change their reading book, we just ask that they have read it at least twice to somebody. We encourage all children to share a wide range of books with their families and not just their reading books from school. We would love it if you read with your child as often as possible - it really does make a huge difference to their progress. It is a known fact that children's vocabulary and understanding is improved by reading everyday. It would be great it you could take the time to discuss what they have read and ask questions using VIPERS. We are really grateful for your support in this area.
Spellings - Spelling lists will be sent home via Seesaw. Children will be tested on their spellings every Friday. The spellings may practise a particular phonic pattern, or be taken from their year group "common exception words" list of high frequency words that are tricky to spell.
