Reading books will be changed when you have signed your child's reading journal. Please send books in daily.
Homework journals need to be handed in on Mondays as they will be checked and a total of points earned will be recorded.
Please continue to encourage your child's independence and leave them to come in to the classrooms on their own.
Children will have Swimming on a Monday and Dance on a Tuesday. Please can you provide a suitable swimming costume and towel on a Monday and a suitable indoor kit for your child? The PE kit can be left in school.
Children in Year One will bring home spelling sheets. They will need to practise their spellings. Please encourage your child to learn his/her spellings in their home work books. They will be tested on a Friday!
Water bottles and snacks.
Children can bring their own water bottles into school to help keep them hydrated throughout the day. Children can get a snack from the Year One snack table throughout the day.
If you have any questions or concerns about your child in school, please ask to meet with your child's class teacher at the end of the day as mornings can be busy!
The Enchanted Woodland.
This term we’ll visit a woodland, observe the wildlife, collect natural objects and take beautiful pictures of the things we see. After our woodland adventure, we’ll write about our experiences and learn all about trees. We’ll use information books to investigate woodland creatures and make mini-books of our own. Throughout the project, we will find out how to recognise different plants and animals and create detailed, observational drawings of them. The tale of Hansel and Gretel will inspire us to write our own stories with a woodland theme. We’ll build miniature dens, create woodland works of art and construct mini-woodlands from twigs, sticks, pine cones and leaves.
At the end of our Topic, we’ll have so much to share. We’ll read our stories aloud, create a woodland art gallery, plant seedlings in the school grounds and invite parents/carers to come and see our work.
