We thought it might be helpful to let you know the following information.
Our PE days: Tuesday and Wednesday
Please ensure all clothes, both indoor and outdoor kit (including pumps) are clearly labelled with your child’s name. On a Wednesday, if the weather is fine, we will do our PE session outside. As the weather turns colder it is fine to send in a sweatshirt/hoody and jogging bottoms that can be put on over standard PE kit for added warmth.
Our Library day: Our library day is Monday. Your child will have the chance to change their chosen library book every Monday afternoon.
Reading books and reading diaries:
We are no longer using reading diaries in school. Instead we will be setting reading homework using Marvellous Me. Look out for your child's task each week. If we can see in school that your child has read both books by the deadline date then they will earn a housepoint for their team.
Two reading books will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned to school the following Thursday please so that they can be changed. 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.
Drinks: 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.
Charlie Monkey: Charlie 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 Charlie’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.
