Reading at home

Children need to read their reading books at home every night for approximately 5-10 minutes. Please can adults sign their record book each time their child reads, so that we know how much they have practised. Children also have a set of key words to practise reading at home each night. These words should be read by sight, without sounding out. Books will be changed once a week and new key words will be given out when the child is confident with their current set. Each child will have a set reading day and on this day, adults in school will listen and assess their reading, then give them a new book to take home. Any further reading can be done through your child's Epic login. 

Homework

At the start of Year One, children are expected to read their books and practise their key words every night for home work. We will inform you when further homework is due to be set.

P.E.

We have Dance on a Tuesday and P.E. on a Wednesday

 

A gentle reminder that our school P.E. kit is a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps or trainers for outdoor sports, without visible branding. 

Water bottles and snacks

Don't forget to bring a water bottle to school each day - it is important for children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Water fountains are currently out of use due to covid restrictions. Please label bottles and refill them each day. We can also refill them in school throughout the day if needed.

Children are welcome to bring a healthy snack such as fruit and vegetables to school each day for snack time, but are also offered a piece of fruit from each day. Bread sticks and milk can be purchased at the start of each half-term. Please contact the school office for further information.
