We have had two fantastic weeks getting to know each other.
Your child will be staying for lunch this week. They are entitled to a free school meal or you can supply them with a packed lunch. The school lunch menu is available on the website. Please spend some time discussing the options with your child and help them chose what they would like each day.
Week commencing Monday 20th September: 8:50 - 3:10
Your child will now be attending school full time. If they are going to be absent for any reason please call the attendance number to let the school know.
Your child will be staying for lunch from now on. They are entitled to a free school meal or you can supply them with a packed lunch. The school lunch menu is available on the website. Please spend some time discussing the options with your child and help them chose what they would like each day.
Remember to label ALL of your child's belongings with their name and class to help us minimise lost property.
The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
the more places you'll go.
Your child has been given a green reading record. Inside, on the first page, you will see a sticker that has your child's username and password for Bug Club. Please try to log on and read the allocated books regularly. As you read the book, you will see some bugs on some of the pages. Click the bug to answer the question with your child. Try to let your child lead the session offering support when needed.
Your child has been given a green reading record and a reading book. They will need to bring both books to school with them everyday in their book bags.
You will see in the reading record the title of the book they have and any 'key' words that we would like you to focus on when reading with your child.
Try to encourage your child to point to each word as they read them to develop 1:1 correspondence.
After reading with your child please write a comment in the comments section to let us know how they got on, for example:
Did they use the pictures to help?
Could they recognise any letters/words?
Did they recognise the 'key' word? Can they write the 'key' word?
You will need to sign your child's reading record to let us know that you have read with them at home. This lets us know that they are ready for a new book and we will change it.
Any lost books will incur a cost so please encourage your child to take care of the book and to put it back in their bag when they have finished reading it for the day.
Aim to read with your child every day, even if only for a few minutes. It is so important the we instil a love for reading from an early age.
Below is a link for some ideas and links to different reading activities you can try at home.
Tuesday 21st September
As part of our topic 'Families' we would like to make family trees in school.
Please help your child complete the 'leaves' they have bought home by writing the information (name, age and relationship to child) on them. You do not need to add information to ALL of the leaves but please ensure you talk about your family members with your child.
Please return the completed 'leaves' page by Friday 24th September.
Any questions, please ask your child's teacher or teaching assistant.
