Important Reminders

 

Homework

  • One accelerated reader quiz completed each week.
  • Spellings practised (your child needs to get at least 8/10 to show they are secure with the spelling rule)
  • Times tables task completed on Seesaw.

If your child completes all three pieces of homework, they will be rewarded with privilege playtime.

P.E. 

This term, PE will be on the following days:

Tuesday – Outdoor games/ indoor gymnastics

For outdoor games children will need to bring pumps or trainers, jogging pants/leggings and a t-shirt. As the weather is cold, we recommend that children also bring in an extra jumper to wear whilst outside.

For gymnastics, children will need to wear shorts/ leggins and a t-shirt.

 

Friday – Swimming

The following kit is required for weekly swimming lessons:

A swimming costume/ swimming trunks, a towel and a swimming hat for children whose hair is long enough to come into contact with their face in the water. Please ensure that your child brings a waterproof bag to carry their swimming kit to and from the swimming baths. Please note that children without a swimming kit will not be allowed to attend the lesson on the day and will have to remain in school for health and safety reasons.

 Spellings

Spellings will be given out every Friday and you will be tested the following Friday. Spelling is important because it helps to aid your reading and improve your writing.
