PE will continue to be on Tuesday and Friday. The children will need a named PE kit including pumps. Children come into school on Tuesday in their P.E kit and will change into their uniform. On Friday children will come home in their P.E kit.
NB. P.E kit is: black shorts or tracksuit bottoms/leggings, white t-shirt and school sweatshirt.
Reading and spelling routines continue as normal. Try to listen to your child read as often as possible and encourage them to read a variety and breadth of other fiction and non-fiction books, discussing the story and predicting what happens next. Please remember to sign your child’s reading record once you have read with them.
Spelling: Please can we remind parents that spelling homework consists of 3 lists and 2 sentences using the words from the week. It is more beneficial for pupils to practise their spellings ‘little and often’ as it helps them retain it better. Lists can be done in fancy writing and colour, but please can sentences be done in pencil.
Maths Quick recall of number bonds is paramount in maths. All children have a log on to the Numbots website. It is a fun way to learn their number bonds. Please can your child practise regularly.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs Brown and Miss McMurrough
