Welcome to the start of the new school year.  The children have been wonderful in their first week back and I have been made to feel very welcome, thank you.

This letter is to inform you about class routines, topics and homework your child will be working through during the next few weeks.  The topic we are learning about this half term is “Buildings and Structures” and in science we will be learning about different materials.

P.E. days will be Tuesdays and Fridays. Children will need shorts, jogging bottoms in colder weather, t-shirt and trainers or plimsolls when working outside.  It is advisable that children bring their P.E. kit into school on a Monday and leave it on their peg during the week.

Our class assembly will be held on Wednesday 29th November 2017 at 9am. This is where we share some of our learning and you are invited to come and watch.

Children are expected to bring their reading folder and water bottle to school every day.  Children should keep their reading book and reading record in the book folder.  Please support your child by reading with them regularly.  Children should share their reading book with parents/carers and other family members every evening.  Discussion about the book also contributes to your child’s learning.  Please add comments and/or initial in the reading record so that we know when your child’s book needs changing.

We will also be changing our library books and taking some time to share books in the library.

Times tables is a key element to maths learning.  Children are expected to learn their x 2, x 5 and x 10 during Year 1 and Year 2.

If you have any questions about your child’s learning or classroom routines please do not hesitate to ask.  It is always best to book an appointment with me after school so that the class is not disturbed.  This can be done through the school office staff.
