We hope you have all had a fantastic Summer!
We are really looking forward to seeing all of the children's fresh faces on Tuesday morning, ready to start their new school year. We hope they are excited too!
In Year One, Forest School will be every Tuesday afternoon. Please send appropriate clothing for the outdoors: long sleeves and trousers, waterproofs and wellington boots.
We will have PE every Thursday afternoon so please send appropriate PE clothes for indoor PE. We work barefoot in the hall so pumps are not necessary. In the Summer term, we will have PE outside so trainers will be necessary then.
School reading books will be changed every Monday and Thursday. Mrs Holmes will only change books that have been finished. Please send your child's reading book everyday so we can listen to them read as much as possible.
Homework will be sent home every Friday. There is spelling practise and Maths work. We will have a spelling test every Friday morning.
We are going to use postcards to recognise positive behaviour of children who are showing the school values: kind, accepting, fair, honest and respectful. Postcards will be sent home to reward children for their hard work and brilliant behaviour.
To start the year our Topic is, 'All things bright and beautiful.' This is all about animals and plants. We will start by reading, 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea.' We will also be visiting Potteric Carr Nature Reserve to launch this topic on September 12th.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Miss Matthews and Mrs Holmes.
