Useful information:-


Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Please have PE kits including trainers in school ready for these lessons.


Your child should have brought home a reading book and reading record. Reading books are changed as soon as children have read them and had their reading record signed at home. This can be as often as daily! Please ensure that your child brings their reading book to school every day.


Key word reading cards and phonics cards will be included in reading packets later this month for your child to practise. These will be changed as soon as your child can confidently read them.  Practising 'little and often' tends to be the most successful approach to learning these, both at home and at school!

Your child will be given a login for Times Table Rockstars and Mathletics. Please find the weblinks below:

Here are some useful pages to help with your child's work at home...

Throughout the year, our class will continue to learn about the changing weather and the seasons. We would love the children to bring in any seasonal objects for our nature shelf!
