Our PE days: Monday and Tuesday
The children will need to keep their PE Kit in school - as they will be taking part in outdoor PE sessions, you may like to send in an outdoor kit, (sweatshirt / hoody and jogging bottoms) as this will help keep your child warm. Please can you ensure that any jewellery or earrings be removed prior to the lessons.
your child will bring their reading books home on Friday. We ask that you return these books each Thursday morning, in order for new books to be issued. On Marvellous Me you will be able to indicate that your child has read and this will be your reading record. It will also inform teachers of your child's reading journey for the week.
Please wash your hands before reading your books at home and we will do the same in school to be extra safe.
You will have access to lots of exciting books on Bug Club too that you can read at home on a phone, tablet or computer.
Library books: Your child will use the library in school once a week and your child can bring home a book of their choice.
Water bottles: Your child should bring their own small plastic bottle of water to school each day. Please ensure that the bottle is labelled with your child’s name and that it contains only water. The bottle must be taken home each night to be washed and refilled. Please do not put the bottles in book bags in case of leakage.
Monty Monkey: Monty Monkey is our class pet. The children will hopefully have the opportunity to take him home for the weekend and record his adventures in his diary. For the moment however he will be socially distancing himself from you all in our classroom. Please note: When it is possible, if you choose to put photographs of your child into Monty's diary, then you are giving consent for those photographs to be viewed by the other children in the class and their families when it is their turn to take the diary home.
