Our topic this term is ...
How you can help your child
- Read regularly with your child at home, both listening to them and them listening to you: reading should be fun and enjoyable!
- Help your child with their homework tasks, don’t do it for them but support them and make it an enjoyable experience for you both.
- School starts at 8.50am. Being punctual to school in the mornings is really important: help your child get their bag and uniform ready the night before to make mornings less stressful!
Homework: Homework is set termly and a ‘menu’ of activities will be given to choose from.
Reading Books: Reading books and records must be brought in daily. Children will read weekly with an adult and books will be changed on a Friday. Please make a note in the reading record to let us know that the book is ready to be changed.
PE Kit: PE will be on Thursday. As space is limited in Y1, your child can wear trainers and jogging bottoms/ shorts on PE days to save storing bags. PE will take place outdoors this term so please provide suitable clothing for this.
Snack: Snack money is £1 per week. Children will receive a piece of fruit as well as milk/ water (free). Snack money can be paid weekly or termly. Please send money in a clearly labelled envelope.
Spellings: As a school we are working hard on promoting the importance of spelling correctly. This term we are having a big push on spelling accurately in our work and trying to make spelling fun. Our aim is to produce capable and independent spellers through an engaging and challenging whole school approach. All children will be given spellings each week to learn and will be assessed through activities during the week.
