Book change day is a Wednesday or Thursday: your child will bring home one or two new books which will be changed on a weekly basis. Please re-read these books to support your child with building up their fluency and confidence in word reading. If you would like further support with strategies for supporting your child’s reading at home then please do come and see me, I am more than happy to help.
We have PE on Wednesdays - please make sure your child brings in their full PE kit to school.
We have swimming on Fridays - please make sure your child brings in their full swimming kit to school.
For homework, the children will have: a Maths activity, a grammar or spelling activity and a handwriting activity each week. This will come home every Friday and needs to be returned by the following Tuesday at the latest.
On a Friday the children will take home a weekly spelling word list. These spellings will be check in school on the following Wednesday.
We have been practising handwriting daily in class following the cursive handwriting format. The children are now already beginning to use some of the diagonal and horizontal strokes needed to join letters and I am very pleased with their progress with this so far.
