World Book Day

The children had fun doing various activities related to the school book 'Here We Are' and in Year 1. Below is a little video to celebrate all the hard word done by the children.

PE

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their full P.E kit on these days. It is expected that all items are named and kept in a clearly named bag.

Library

Our class visits the library on a Monday so please make sure books are brought back to be changed.

Homework

The children will be given spellings to learn on a Tuesday and will be tested on them the following Tuesday . Please support your child in learning their spellings through the week.

Reading books need to be returned on a Thursday and will be reissued the following Monday. This is to make sure that all books have had the 3 days quarantine before sending them out again to a different household. Please spend time with your child supporting and listening to them with their reading and talking to them about what they have read.

A homework grid relating to the topic being covered will be sent home at the beginning of each half term. The children are expected to research and produce answers to at least 1 of the questions. They can answer the questions with as much creativity as they wish. They will be expected to share their work with the rest of the class.
