Welcome back Class Three!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and are ready for the exciting term ahead.
Reading with your child is extremely beneficial to their learning. Daily reading is essential and discussing the texts with them helps to develop their reading comprehension skills. Please read daily with your child and sign their reading record.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and will need to be returned the following Wednesday. Please work together to make homework fun but it should be children’s own work. Children should ensure it is completed to the best of their ability and neatly presented.
Spellings will be given each week and will need to be returned on Wednesday. We will practise these spellings with a spelling test every Friday.
PE is on Wednesdays. Children will come to school in their PE kit with a school jumper or cardigan and school shoes. We will change into outdoor shoes for PE. No earrings are to be worn during PE.
School uniform including PE kits, coats, outdoor shoes should all be labelled clearly. Your child will need to bring in a water bottle for school each day.
