Welcome to the new term.

We hope you will find the following information helpful.

We would like to start firstly by introducing ourselves as your child’s new class teachers. We are very much looking forward to getting to know you and your children, and we are looking forward to a happy and successful school year.

 

 ‘I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.’

J.K. Rowling

This year, we are asking all children to read for at least five minutes each night and to record it in their reading record. Doing so will help children develop comprehension skills and also help to expand their vocabulary and imagination, reinforcing the work we are doing in school. Please listen to your child read and talk about the book with them, asking questions about what they have read. This will also help them to develop a solid understanding of the text.  We will monitor this weekly to encourage and celebrate good reading habits.

Secondly, weekly homework will not be given out this year.  Instead, we are going to ask children to complete a project, linked with our half termly topic, which will be presented at the end of each term. A letter will be sent out each half term to explain what is required.  This should not only be more engaging for children but the freedom of choice will also give everyone the opportunity to demonstrate talents and interests in a way which traditional homework doesn’t. We can’t wait to see the masterpieces children create!

Your child will need his/her PE kit in school from Monday to Friday every week. Please ensure that all clothing is named.  PE kits consist of a white t-shirt, navy blue/black shorts and plimsolls.  Along with this, your child will need trainers in school every day and appropriate clothing for the Daily Mile.  During the colder months this might include tracksuit/jogging bottoms and/or sweatshirts. 

We start swimming on Friday 21st September 2018 and will be attending this weekly.  The new weekly sessions will help children to achieve greater progress in swimming, which is a vital skill for children living in our coastal area.

We have also signed up to `Times Table Rockstars'. Please encourage your child to access this at home as much as possible.  In doing so, your child will learn times tables quickly whilst having fun.  They will also develop a greater understanding of a range of mathematical concepts.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Dixon, Mrs Carvell and Miss Clennan.
