PE Days: Mondays and Fridays
PE kits should be in school for the half term (including joggers and fleece). No earrings to be worn on PE days please.
Please revise the words that will be sent home each week. These link to the Little Wandle phonics and spelling lessons that the children have taken part in during the week. The children will be tested on the words in total on Tuesdays. Please see the complete list of spellings in the document download area below.
Each week, there will be a maths activity set on MyMaths, linked to the learning at school. Please encourage your child to log onto MyMaths and complete the activity.
Some children are working through Little Wandle phonics and will read books to reinforce the phonics teaching. They will read the book several times at school and then bring it home to read fluently and to discuss the text with you. The children will have a library book that they can also read at home. Children who have completed the phonics programme will bring home an Accelerated Reader book.
