Please read with your child every night and record it in their reading record. Feel free to read other books as well as the ones sent home from school and try to make it an enjoyable and relaxing time for you both.
Spellings are handed out each Friday; the following Friday the children will write some dictated sentences in class using some of those words. They will not be given a mark. Children should bring in their Spelling book each Friday. We want children to use the correct spellings in their work, not just know them for a test, so practising little and often is far better than cramming the night before! Each child has a new login in for Spelling Bee which is on the Literacy Shed website: this is on a sticker in their Reading Record. A separate letter and guide for this has already been sent out, explaining the games that they can play to support their recall.
Throughout the year, children will learn to count in 2’s, 3's 5’s and 10’s. They will then learn how this translates into their times tables. Children will be given access to the Numbots website and app at the start of the year which they can use to practise what they have learned as the year progresses. Please contact your child’s teacher if you need a copy of their username and password.
Please make sure your child has their full PE kit in school every day for P.E lessons and the Daily Mile. Each class has two timetabled slots for PE:
Beech - Wednesday and Friday afternoons
2AM - Thursday and Friday afternoons
2SR - Thursday and Friday afternoons
