Our school day starts at 8:55am and finishes at 3:30pm.
PE will be on Monday's and Friday's (swimming). On our PE days, children should come to school in their PE kit. Please make sure that PE kits fit in with our school policy; they should be a plain white t-shirt, plain black/navy/dark grey joggers or shorts and a plain black/navy/dark grey hoodie or jumper - there should be no large logos on PE kits!
All children should read to an adult a minimum of 5 times a week! Please sign and date your child's reading diary and number each session to ensure your child receives the appropriate certificate or reward. Homework diaries will be monitored everyday - the children can change their books as necessary. Between these days, please focus on both their READING FLUENCY (being able to read words in their book and use punctuation) and their READING COMPREHENSION (their understanding of the words on the page).
If you discuss the book after your child has finished, it will help you check their understanding of what they have read.
There are some questions you could ask your child:
-What does the word 'X' mean?
-How do you think character 'X' feels?
-What do you think is going to happen next?
-Can you summarise the story/paragraph?
