What a fantastic first week back!  It has been so lovely to see all of the children!  We have done some wonderful learning this week so keep your eyes peeled for pictures and updates in the coming weeks.

 

Housekeeping:

Amethyst P.E sessions are on: Tuesday and Friday

Topaz P.E sessions are on: Wednesday and Thursday 

These will be outside where possible so please ensure that your child has the correct footwear and kit. This can include jogging bottoms for colder days.

 

Homework:

Homework will be set on the website on FRIDAY each week.  They will have spelling, reading and times tables.

It will be due to be handed in on WEDNESDAY each week.  (Reading journals, spelling and maths homework books)  These will be looked at by staff in the class each week.  

 

Reading: They will bring home a reading book every day, please encourage them to read at home and to share their books with your at least 3 times a week.  If you can sign the book and comment alongside the children that would be fantastic!  Please help your child(ren) to take care of our new books and return them in good condition.

Spellings: Each week they will have a set of words to learn these will follow a specific letter string pattern or type of word.  We are encouraging the children to learn these words in their own way and they will have a sheet of ideas in their book.  They should practise each word as many times as they can. (see the PDF file below showing the words for this week)

Maths: We are going to begin the year with a focus on times tables as they help in so many areas of learning.  Here are a few websites to get you started.  We would recommend you focus on the times tables you are not as confident with first.
