A few reminders:
Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday.
Please don't forget to wear your kit into school. As long as the weather permits, we will be outside so please remember to wrap up warm on the chillier days!
We try to get out as much as possible, in all weathers! It is really important that children come to school with a warm raincoat on those damper days. We ask that a waterproof coat and wellies be left in school, to ensure that we are always able to access our Outdoor Classroom!
What to do at home to support your child:
In the Early Years, we expect each child to read daily, with an adult writing in their reading record. Each child will have a phonics reader, interest reader and a library book. In addition to this, children have access to an online library of e-books on ELS.
Please practise phonics at home! Each child has a keyring with our ‘Sounds of the Week’ on, please use these to practise. A note regarding phonics - please ensure that when practising sounds at home you use 'pure sounds' - here is a video explaining this. Each child also has a tin with ‘Harder to Read and Spell Words’ in. Please practise recognition of these words at home!Phonics practise
