Thank you to all who came to the Early Years reading meeting held in October. I hope that you found this information useful and it has helped in some way to support your child’s reading at home. The feedback we received has been very positive and we will be scheduling an additional stay and read session in the New Year.
Please remember to bring your child’s reading book to school every day and support them with their reading at home. Ask your child questions about their book to check their understanding of what they have read and help them to practise the highlighted words on the sheet at the front. Completing the reading record is an excellent way for us to communicate and share your child’s reading skills.
During this cycle we will be reading Owl Babies, The Jolly Christmas Postman and Biscuit Bear which will also support our writing and enable the children to produce some lovely work.
Christmas is quickly approaching and the children are working hard practising the songs for the Snowman at Sunset production which I am sure you will all love. Further information about the show will be sent home in due course. We look forward to seeing you there.
We ask that the children continue to bring in 50p every week, on a Monday, to contribute towards the cost of providing the children with a range of healthy snacks and to help fund additional resources throughout the year. Your contributions are greatly appreciated.
Please be reminded that the school doors open at 8:50am and phonics lessons commence at 9am prompt. It is important your child arrives to school on time to ensure valuable learning is not missed.
As the weather is now turning much colder it is essential for all children to have spare clothes and wellie boots left in school on their peg. The children access the outdoors in ALL weather and we do not have enough spare wellies for them in school. Children also require a thick winter coat, hat, scarf and gloves. Please check all items are clearly labelled with your child’s full name.
Over the following weeks, Manchester United will be in school every Thursday morning to conduct coaching sessions for the class boys. Please remember to bring in trainers or pumps that day so they are ready to take part in the sessions.
