Happy New Year to everyone and a warm welcome to Spring term 2018. Thank you for your continuing support.
The title of the topic this half term is " Would you like to go on an Arctic Adventure?" For more information on this half term take a look at our KS1 newsletter at the bottom of this page.
Please remember to check your child always has their reading book and reading record in school on a Friday in order for their book to be changed.
Don't forget we are taking part in the WOW scheme again, so if you can walk to school or park and stride you will be doing your part to help the environment as well as keeping fit. If you can't manage to walk on Wednesday don't worry, any day of the week will do and you will still be able to collect the super new badges.
Monday 8th January 2018 Return to school.
Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school at all times.
PE will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Please check your child's book bag for letters and information daily.
Learning at Home .
Home Reading Books are changed every Friday.
Home Learning Challenge will be set in the Spring term.
Bug Club will be set on Friday’s every other week please let us know if you have any trouble accessing the website and we will do our best to solve any issues.
We will change the children's reading books every Friday. The purpose of the home reading book is to consolidate decoding skills and comprehension and develop fluency and expression. Please read with your child each week, asking them questions about the story, and sign the reading record so we know to give them a new book. Any additional comments in the reading records are welcomed. Bug Club will also be updated every other week.
In school the children will also have two guided reading sessions each week. These sessions will provide differentiated teaching of reading and will secure progress by providing opportunities for children to practice their learning. We currently use a breadth of reading schemes including Bug Club books, Oxford Reading Tree, Collins and Big Cat.
In the teaching of Phonics we follow the Letters and Sounds programme. Children are taught within differentiated groups for 20 minutes daily.
