As before, we will continue to run our Rainbow Reader system, rewarding children for reading at home. This should be a quality read, talking about what they have read. We ask that children read at least 3 times a week and that the rainbow is something to strive for! Every child is now on the rainbow (which is fantastic!) so they are working toward achieving their Star Reader badge or maybe they are already aiming for the Pot of Gold.
As homework this term, we will be sending home a mixture of number skills and key calculation skills. We will be learning and applying these skills at school as well. These are now primarily another opportunity to practice skills that the children need in order to be ready for our KS1 SATs in May.
Spellings will continue to be set in Read, Write Inc. groups. These will be handed out on a Monday to be tested the following Monday. We ask that you support your child to learn these.
PE days are Wednesdays for both classes still so we do ask that all children have their P.E kit in school on these days. Any children who wear earrings do need to have them either removed or taped up on their P.E day.
Thank you for your support and involvement in your children’s learning, both at home and in the activities we create at school. This really does make a positive difference to your child’s education.
