HOW CAN I HELP MY CHILD?
Helping your child to complete and return weekly homework (see important reminders).
Listening to your child read at least once a week and signing the blue Reading Record book.
Using the internet to research information or facts about the environment.
Homework will be set each Friday and needs to be returned for the following Friday. Your child will be given a homework folder and all work should be placed in this. Homework is an essential part of the curriculum and your support is appreciated. Children who do not complete homework tasks will need to complete it in THEIR TIME in school.
Reading books will be sent home on every night. Children need to have their Reading Record signed at least 3 times a week by an adult. Books will not be changed unless an adult has signed to say the child has read.
Ensuring P.E kit is in school on Monday and Wednesday. P.E lessons will take place INSIDE therefore children need to come with suitable clothes for indoor P.E.
School P.E kit is plain white t-shirt and navy shorts with black pumps.
