 Helping Your child at home 

  • Read every day , share story books and rhymes , these are very important activities to prepare your child for reading  
  • Homework - help your child with their homework activities'
  • Teach your child to dress themselves - I know it's quicker to dress them in the mornings but it is an important skill they need for school laugh


Useful Info

  • Homework will be sent home every Friday, generally it will be practising and reinforcing skills learnt in school this week . To be returned to school by the following Wednesday
  • Reading books and sounds and words to learn will be sent home every Friday to be returned to school the following Wednesday
  • P.E. is on a Wednesday. Children need to have their kit in school . Tshirt in group colour (available from school office) Black or navy shorts. This is where dressing themselves becomes important ! I would suggest they wear clothes that are easy to put on e.g. no tights.
  • Snack - all children are given a healthy snack every day . The charge for this is £1 a week . You can pay weekly, termly or annually. 


Our topic this term is Sunshine and Sunflowers
