Information for Parents

 

PE Lessons:

are Tuesday and Friday, please remember to have your kit in school at all times & that school policy states that all jewellery should be removed, this includes earrings, plasters are not allowed. Due to marks being left on the hall floor we are also asking that children wear pumps inside now. They are most welcome to bring trainers for outdoor activities so if they can have both in the PE kit that would be fantastic. Thank you.

 

Water Bottles:

should be brought to school and taken home daily for cleaning and refilling, it is scientifically proven that children and adults function better when hydrated, enabling great learning. many children are asking for a drink during the day and we have limited plastic cups, so for hygiene reasons please do send your child with a water bottle, even when it's cold outside.

 

Spellings:

spelling homework sheets are given out each Friday and should be returned, completed, the following Friday, this is when the pupils will compete their test. they should then bring this home for you to see, please ask them for it.

 

Reading Books:

your child should know which is their reading day, if they don't please ask myself or Mrs Ralph. However, it would be helpful if children can have their reading books and diaries in their bags at all times in case of an interruption to the weekly plan or an opportunity for extra reading occurs. Please ensure that your child is reading out loud to an adult regularly, they are more likely to spot their own mistakes or misunderstandings if they can hear themselves and this activity also allows you to engage them in discussion about their understanding and enjoyment of a book. If you feel you need a little help with this, also available on our class page is a KS2 reading prompts for parents leaflet. This gives you some ideas of the types of questions you can ask your child about their book and ways to stimulate discussion about reading.

 

Thank you for your support smiley
