Dates for your diary
Forest Day - Wednesday 14th October

Welcome Back!

I hope you all had a wonderful summer break!

We are now entering the Autumn 1 term. Our new topic is Bright lights, Big city!

Here is some information for you:

Indoor PE is on Tuesdays.

Outdoor PE is on Thursdays.

PE kit consists of a white top, dark shorts/skirt, pumps/trainers, dark jumper, and dark jogging bottoms. If your child has their ears pierced, please provide tape or ensure they can remove their own earrings. PE kits will stay in school for the half term.

Spellings will be tested on Thursdays. New spellings will be stuck in red home diaries on Fridays. The first spelling test will take place on Thursday 10th September. Your child will receive a spelling homework booklet to practice their weekly spellings in. These do not need to be returned to school for marking but to be kept at home to practice in.

Your child will also receive a number bonds booklet. Please complete one page per week and return to school on a Monday, to be marked and returned on Tuesday. This, alongside the spelling booklet have replaced the existing homework booklet.

Reading books will be changed weekly on Mondays and your child will also have an online bug club login to read e-books (see letter). Your child will also receive a pink wordbook. The pink wordbook will contain a short list of high frequency and common exception words that your child should be able to read from sight.

The children will receive team point rewards for the reading they complete at home. Please try to read 3x a week at home and record in the red home school diary. We will number each read and when your child has read 10 times their name will be placed in the reading jar for a chance to win a prize at the end of the half term.

Please see school website for any further information.

Thank you for your continued support, any questions please feel free to contact me.
