Our aim is to encourage and develop all children to become confident and independent learners. To help them along this journey, it is vital that the children are supported in their learning at home. We appreciate all family support in working towards this.
It is vital that you hear your child read every day at home to assist their progress and sign/make a comment in the reading diary. This is included as part of the Yr 1 expectations for homework. We check the reading diaries every other day and new books will be issued if the previous books have been read. We have seen a significant improvement in the progress of reading for those children who are heard at home on a regular basis.
P.E this term is on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please remember that any new P.E kit and winter clothing (including hats, scarves, gloves) should be clearly named. PE days may change due to events in school so please make sure their kit is in school at all times. Kits will be sent home every half term so they can be washed and returned.
This term we will be starting the second stage of the 'Song of Sounds' programme. Teaching will focus around a song that you will all be singing very soon as we are sure your children will be sharing the song with you!!
