Your child will receive a school reading book, which they should be reading at home at least three times per week. Please record and initial the pages your child has read that in their planner so that they can receive their homework points on a Friday. We will check their reading levels regularly to ensure they are reading the correct level of book. Children will be given the opportunity to change their reading books on allocated days each week. We would ask that you support your child and school by encouraging them to read at home and hearing them read regularly. Time to hear readers in school is extremely limited so parental/carer input is vitally important in order for your child to progress.
Planners will be checked and stamped every Friday. However, pupils should bring their planner in to school every day.
Every Monday new spellings will be given out for a test the following Monday. Each week the children will record their test in their planner so that you can see their result.
Children will work hard to learn their times tables this year. They will soon receive their Times Tables Rockstars login details. This is a fun way to develop recall of multiplication and division facts.
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child has their PE kit: owl house t shirt, shorts, plimsolls for indoors AND trainers for outside PE. Earrings and jewellery must be removed during PE lessons. PE kits are kept at school during the week and will be sent home during holidays to be washed. Providing your child with a water bottle will allow your child to stay hydrated as they enjoy their PE lesson.
