Water Bottles

Please ensure that you send your child in with a water bottle each day filled with water only.

PE

Your child’s PE sessions will be on Monday and Friday. PE kit should stay in school all term as there are occasions when our PE time has to be moved to a different day. During the term, the children will be learning skills through a range of sports including tag rugby, netball and basketball.

Please ensure children with shoulder length hair or longer have their hair tied back. If your child has pierced ears, their earrings will need to be removed in this session. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in a suitable bag and labelled clearly with their full name and class.

Homework

Homework will be sent out weekly on Fridays. It will be due in the following Thursday. As well as this activity, we encourage the following tasks:

Daily reading (10 minutes, at least three days a week.)

To support your child in reading you can listen to them read or ask them questions about their book to help them with their understanding of what they have read. If possible, an adult signature in their reading record will help their progress on the reading chart.

Learn weekly spellings (New spelling words will be brought home every Monday)

Your child will have between 5 to 15 spellings a week that they will practice daily at school. However, further parental support with spelling words outloud or written on paper will be beneficial to your child.

Time Tables

Keep practising your times tables, remember that you have a set time to complete your challenge. TT rockstars is a great website to practice independently.
