A gentle reminder to all that the spelling books should be treated like any other school book. Therefore, please look after these books by ensuring you complete your spellings on a weekly basis and with the best presentation possible. Please ensure you write in pencil only. Thank you.

Spellings are given out each Monday and need to be handed back and completed the following Monday. You will find the children’s spellings stuck into their spelling books. There is a prompt sheet in the front cover of their spelling books giving the children different ideas and strategies to help them with their spellings. If you need any assistance with this please speak to your class teacher.

If you would like to support your children with phonics to ensure that they are articulating their sounds correctly, please watch this video to support your child further:

For Maths, we have stuck in your child’s Numbots login details inside the cover of their reading record books. You can access numbots using this link below:

Please could you support your child with counting on from any given number within 100. Please encourage your children to put a number in their head and hold their fingers up to count on,

for example, 63+3= . Put the number 63 in your head, put 3 fingers up and count on like this, 63 (in head) ,64,65,66..

Please continue to work on counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. Thank you.

For Writing, please continue to practise letter and number formation at home to help support your child’s learning further. If you are going grocery shopping this week, please encourage your children to write your shopping list. Please encourage your child to use a pinch grip when holding a pencil. Thank you.

Reading- please encourage your children to read daily. You can also log in to bug club and access books online. Please find their login details inside your child’s reading record book. Thank you.



Please could your child bring the following with them to school:

· One healthy snack for them to eat during the day.

· Please make sure your child’s water bottle is filled with water only.

· Could all items of clothing and children’s belongings be named.

· All children need to bring in their trainers in a plastic bag, which will then be left at school. This is to enable the children to do the daily mile.

· Please can you make your child’s food choices at home with them. This will help ensure the morning time is used effectively for their learning.

· All children will have P.E. on Fridays, so they need to be wearing their P.E. kit to school. They can wear their school shoes to come to school in as their trainers will be kept at school. They don’t need to bring their uniform to change into.

· As the days get warmer please make sure you child comes to school with a sun hat and wearing sun cream as adults in school cannot apply this to children.
