Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope that you have had an enjoyable and relaxing Easter break. Hopefully, the better weather is on its way and we can return to doing all the things we enjoy.
This term our topic is ‘How does your garden grow’. Please see the parent overview for a detailed plan of what the children will be learning about.
We can not express how important it is for your child to read every night at home with you. The children read in the classroom with lots of the different activities they are engaged in. However, the 1:1 reading helps to reinforce their skills, develop fluency, understanding and a passion for reading. Please complete their reading records or ask your children to write in it. We will be checking and rewarding children with a sticker when they have read at home at least four times a week. Look out for our brand new reading books that will be arriving soon that have been bought with the money that you helped to raise!
An English and a maths task will be on Google classroom each week. You have seven days to complete the tasks. Please upload homework. Any children who have not completed the tasks will stay in at breaktime to do so. If you are not on Google classroom or need support to use it then please ask. We will also be sending home logins for times table rock stars – a letter about this will be sent separately in the next week.
Please can the children have their (labelled) P.E. kit in school all week. Our usual days for P.E. are Tuesday and Thursday but this can change. Please also ensure that your child has a pair of trainers – plimsoll type shoes are not suitable for outdoor PE.
Water bottles (labelled)
The children have these at their desk and they can drink when they choose and refill throughout the day.
We will be holding phone or Google Classroom meetings this term. Please see the newsletter for dates and sign up sheets. Thank you.
Sun hats and sun cream
Hopefully, the sun will be shining soon! Please supply your child with a sun hat and sun cream. Please name both.
We are looking forward to this term. If you have any questions then please email us by using the office email.
Many thanks for your continued support,
Mrs Hookham and Miss Rowlands
