PE this year is planned for Mondays and Thursdays and so it is essential that PE kits are in school for both days. To be honest, it’s very helpful if it is in everyday just in case we have to change plans. PE kits should include: shorts, PE shirt, daps and jogging bottoms in colder weather. Please could this and any clothes be clearly named so we are able to return any lost property.
Homework will usually be set every week on Friday. It will often be a Maths task that can be completed online (if your child does not have access to the internet then please let us know). Sometimes it may be a practical or a discussion based activity which may not create a piece of work or otherwise it will be on a sheet that comes home.
In addition to this the children will have their reading books, spelling words and times tables. These will also be given out on Friday for a quiz the following Friday. Reading folders should be in school every day so we are able to change books when needed and hear readers in class.
Children are encouraged to bring in a water bottle with a ‘sports’ top so they can keep hydrated throughout the day. It should come in every morning with fresh water (sorry no juice).
We need to point out that our cloakroom is very small and is actually used by more than 50 children as we share it with Y3. Therefore to help all the children and to develop age-appropriate independence, we kindly ask that parents please say goodbye in the playground and let children come into school on their own.
We would greatly appreciate any help from parents/carers who fancy getting involved at any time, as well as parent volunteers to come on our visits or trips, you just need to let us know if you are available and then we can organise a time. We will always find a fun job for you to do and promise it’s not always messy!!
If anyone needs to talk to either of us, then we will usually be available briefly in the morning or after school for 10-15 mins, if you need more time then please make an appointment. The door is always open!
Once again welcome to everyone and if you have any queries feel free to ask.
