PE Lessons – Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school. PE kits should be brought in at the beginning of the Half Term and left in school. A list of the full PE kit can be found on the website under Parents > School Uniform

Water bottles- Please ensure your child is bringing in a water bottle every day.

Reading Books - Reading books and records should be brought to school daily. We encourage children to read every night to support their phonics. Please ensure that once you have read a book, you comment and sign so we know if it has been read.

English - Our key texts for this Half Term are How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers and How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth  by Michelle Robinson.

Homework

Maths - Children will be set a weekly Maths task on My Maths every Friday. Children will need to complete the task by the following Wednesday.

Reading - We encourage children to read every day at home to support their Phonics and reading fluency. Please comment on/ sign your child's reading record so we know the book has been read.

Comprehension - Children will be set a comprehension task to complete in their comprehension books on Tuesday to be returned the following Monday. 

Spelling - Children will be set spelling homework every Friday to practice at home and learn. 

 

Remote learning

In the event of a school or bubble closure or self-isolation, we will set the children work on the Purple Mash and My Maths programmes, where children will be asked to complete a set of tasks. They will also be given activities to work on in a Maths and English workbook that will be sent home. Children will be notified of the tasks to complete via the school website. All children have been provided with the login details necessary to access these websites, however if you do need a reminder or any support with using them, please feel free to email your class teacher and we will be happy to help. Reading regularly is vital in practising phonics and early reading skills and should be continued as normal. Please feel free to read a range of books from school or home.
