Both classes will also have PE on a Friday. 

Every day please send in:

  • Your child’s reading record and reading book – please read with your child, or ask a sibling or another family member to read 5 nights out of 7. 

  • Children are allowed to bring a book bag to school now. 

  •  Purple Phonics folder – these contain phonics worksheets that have been completed during the school day. We request that every evening they be looked through (practise reading the new phonetic code and the vocabulary to support this  - this should take no more than 5 minutes each night.)

Each week

  • We have introduced a Spelling folder – (yellow folder) these contain your child’s spelling homework. Please encourage your child to practise their spellings. If possible please put these words around your home, post it notes are good for this, to support their learning. New spellings will be given out on a Friday and then tested in class the following Friday.

This is additional work that your child can complete at home to support their maths. We will be keeping an eye on who completes the challenges that are set. Your child will bring home their own unique login in their spelling folder.
