PE - In P.E., all classes will complete outdoor and indoor sessions each week. Indoor PE will be gymnastics and outdoor will be multi skills. Toucans will be swimming every Tuesday.
Please ensure that your child has a PE kit in school every Monday as classes will have PE on different days. The PE kit can be returned home on a Friday. This should include appropriate clothing for both indoor and outdoor.
All children can bring their own class water bottle into school to ensure they drink enough water to stay hydrated and focused for learning.
Homework will be sent home on a Wednesday ready for the following Monday return. Each week children will have spellings to learn and a mymaths activity to complete online. There is also a topic homework with fun and creative things to do which is voluntary.
Children will complete weekly spelling assessments in a spellings books which will remain in school.
We will complete a BIG WRITE on a Friday each week which will be based on our literacy learning. Big Talk homework will be given weekly so you can support your child's writing ideas with them prior to the session.
We love reading!
Reading is part of our daily routine and is an important part of our children's development. We would love our children to read at least 4 times a week. This can be a reading book, shared reading, bedtime stories or even road signs and shopping lists!
Children's reading books and fantastic new reading records will go home with them each night so their home reading can be recorded. Please encourage your child to read a range of texts regularly at home. Please take time to familarise yourself with the reading records.
