P1M & W: Wet Weather Clothing

Good afternoon,

As the weather has been particularly changeable this week, could you please ensure that your child has full waterproofs (wellies – kept in class, waterproof trousers and jacket or puddle suit – kept in your child’s bag) every day. This helps with our outdoor learning & keeps them dry during playtime/lunchtime.

Thanks,

Miss Wilson & Miss Murray

SOUNDS          The 10 Best Ways to Help Kids Learn Phonics (Activities to Help Your Child Learn to Read!) | How to Learn

This week is a revision week. Please continue to practise the sounds taught so far. You could spend some time playing on Literacy Planet.

SIGHT WORDS 

We learned two new sight words – ‘these’ and ‘so’. Word Walls have been checked and focus words highlighted – these will be sent home on Monday or Tuesday, to be retuned to school on Friday.  Please return your word wall to school tomorrow if you didn’t manage to hand it in last week. Remember to practice saying each word in a sentence. It’s a good idea to go back over the words you have already learned.

There are only a few simple rules –

all children must wear a helmet on a bike

bikes and scooters should be wheeled through the playground on the way in and out of school and on the ashy path.

Parents and younger siblings are welcome to join in the challenge.

Each class will get the chance to cycle and scoot with their friends in the playground during their day.

We would ask that you check over bikes and scooters to make sure they are safe to use, especially if they haven’t been used for a while.

Please don’t worry if your child is unable to bring their bike or scooter on any of their days.  Walking counts too!

Big pedal parent info

We are all looking forward to the Big Pedal.  It should be lots of fun.
