On Friday afternoons we have PE. We ask that your child brings in a white t-shirt and black shorts, which can be left in a bag on their peg during the week. We currently do PE in the hall, and will let you know when pumps are required as we move outdoors.
Reading Days are allocated to your child, which is the day that they read with an adult in school. This will commence in Autumn 2 once the children have a secure amount of sounds learnt. Every Monday, your child must bring their book to school so it can be changed for a fresh book. We encourage your child to keep that book all week so they can develop a flow and to their reading and develop their comprehension and understanding of the text.
Reading at home is very important and we ask that you do so each night with your child, for short periods of time. They may want to read their own books or books from the online Bug Club and this is good as we want the children to develop a passion for reading.
There is a whole school incentive for children to read 5 times a week - and for us to know the children have achieved this, their reading record MUST be signed each time they read!
Gold book assembly is on a Friday afternoon - which, if your child is chosen ,you may come along to see their achievement—keep your eyes peeled for a flyer in their bag on a Thursday evening!
If your child has done something they are proud of/something new we love for you to share it with us! Each child has their own star in class, and there are forms available so you can share their successes and contribute to your child’s learning journey assessments :) Just an adult for a star sheet as and when needed. We will also send them home each half term to encourage this celebration.
Anything else that you may need to know should be located in the attached New Starter booklet.
