The children are all settling in really well and are making new friends. This term our overarching topic is 'All about me'. We will be exploring a range of different books which will support our learning, every week/two weeks the book will change. The children all really enjoyed the book 'Funny Bones' they made scary skeletons and wrote speech bubbles for the different characters in the book. They were amazing!
Music and Dance are on Tuesday and PE is on Thursday. We will not be getting changed into PE kit until after Christmas so you don't need to bring it in yet. If all the children’s clothes could be named clearly that would be fantastic.
Homework will be given out every Friday and please return it by Wednesday so that your child's work can be rewarded. We are also sending home a poster with new high frequency words to add each week. Some of these words cannot be sounded out and must be learnt by sight. Please support your child reading these words as it makes a huge difference to their reading.
Your child will be given two reading books to take home each week on their Guided reading day. Please read the books with your child and write a comment in their reading diary.
As it is getting colder we ask that the children bring in suitable clothing; jackets, hats, gloves and that they are clearly named.
If you have any questions at all, please come and see us.
