Hello Children and Parents,


We've had a fantastic first week back, everyone has settled in really nicely and already started working really hard.


Here is some information for you...


Please bring PE kit on a Monday, where it will stay in school all week. We will have PE on a Tuesday and a Friday. On a Friday children will go home in their PE kit, after our lesson at the end of the day.


I will post children's spellings on the school website and Dojo each week on a Thursday night. Please practise these in your spelling book and keep this at home. We will have our spelling quiz each week on a Friday.


I will also upload homework on Dojo. I will send homework books home this week, please keep these at home. Children can complete work set in these and you can take photos to share if you wish.


Maths TT Rockstars letters have gone out, it would be great if you could start practising your times tables.


I hope for the children to choose their first reading book on Monday to take home and then bring back every other Friday. Please keep reading record books at home, again if you wish to share pictures you can.


Thank you,


Miss Tate and Mrs Selwood
