News and Reminders



The most important work that needs to be done at home is regularly listening to your child read and sharing books. Children need to get into the habit of bringing their books into school and placing them into the basket so that we can change books when they finish them. Don't forget to write in your child's reading record so that we know that they have finished their book. We will collect in reading records to be checked every Wednesday. All children will have an additional book which is for our whole class guided reading sessions; this must be in for our lesson on Mondays.

Our optional homework tasks are linked to our topic - this half term we are studying Europe.  These can be brought in as your child completes them. Rewards will be given for completed tasks.

Children can also access Lexia (an online reading programme) at home. See the link below. 

Children will also receive a login for Times Table Rockstars - an online resource to encourage pupils to be come fluent with their times tables (vitally important!). See the link below.

Spelling frame: An important aspect of English is spelling. We have signed up for Spelling frame (a website that looks into specific spelling rules). Your teacher will set you a spelling rule for you to practise. See the link below.






PE is on Wednesday mornings. Could you please ensure that your child has a labelled P.E kit (including names written on the inside of P.E pumps/trainers) at all times. This can be taken home at half term to be laundered. The kit can contain joggers and a warm top.

Children will have additional PE sessions either in the Autumn or Spring Term at the Sports Centre for gymnastics. 

The children will do a 10 week block of swimming in the Spring Term. Please see letter and Class Dojo messages for details.

Please remember to remove all earrings and other jewellery before coming to school.
