For this half term, Individual Reading sessions will be on Monday and Friday. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we will be doing guided reading sessions with Mrs Machin. 

Reading books can still be changed on most days and children are still expected to read at home to an adult (if possible!) three times a week. Please can you sign the reading record so that we know they have read to an adult. 

 

 P.E will be on a Wednesday morning (9.00am - 10.20am) and will be taken by Mr Ellis. It will also be on a Friday afternoon (1.15pm - 2.15pm) with Mrs Machin The children will be covering a variety of skills in these lessons and will need warm outdoor clothing.  P.E lessons will take place on the play ground and field (if it is dry!).

  • Navy shorts
  • White T-shirt
  • Trainers/ pumps
  • Tracksuit/ leggings/ hoodie

PLEASE CAN YOU NAME ALL THE PIECES OF CLOTHING,

SO THAT YOUR CHILD FINDS IT EASY TO ORGANIZE THEIR BELONGINGS!!

 

Homework is given out on a Friday and will be collected in on a Wednesday. It will usually be a piece of Maths/ English work, weekly spellings and reading. This work is normally based on what we have been doing in class that week , so the children will have a background understanding of it already. If your child is really struggling and doesn't understand it, just let us know before the handing in date and we will try to help out. Please don't do more that 60 mins on the homework in order to finish it come what may......just let us know and we'll understand!! Homework shouldn't be a stressful experience for you or your child, so if there are tears and arguments......get in touch A.S.A.P!smiley
