If your child is a free reader they may choose a book from the selection in class, or if they prefer, they may bring a book from home to enjoy during quiet reading. If your child uses the reading scheme they may change their book whenever necessary.
Their current reading book should be recorded in their Home School book, together with signed comments from home whenever they read to someone. We strongly encourage children to read aloud as often as possible, as well as reading to themselves.
Foxes will have swimming lessons on Wednesdays, for which they need a swimming kit, including a swimming hat. We will also have P.E. on Thursdays. Please ensure that your child has warm PE clothes as they will be outside for some lessons. Thank you.
This will be sent out on a Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday.
These will be sent out on Monday and the children will be tested on Friday.
Home School books
Your child has a Home School book in which to record their reading, spellings and times tables, and in addition it contains lots of other useful information.
We ask parents to sign the Home School book each week, and they are collected in each Friday. House points are awarded for evidence of reading at home, and spellings and times tables practises are checked. Parents may write comments if they wish, and teachers also may convey information in this way.
Thank you for your continued support in your child’s learning. Please don’t hesitate to come to speak with me after school, if necessary.
