Good afternoon! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. Homework and reminders for the coming week can be found below.

Word Walls: Please continue to check over these with your child as often as possible. Only the words highlighted in yellow should be practiced. Your child should also be able to use these words correctly in a sentence. Once we are seeing your child do so, with confidence, we will highlight the box green.

Reading: New reading books will be sent home by Tuesday. Please read them with your child, discussing the story/words. The children should sound out the words and, where necessary, use the picture cues to help them “read” the words.

Book Hunt: Thank you again for everyone who has been out hiding our books. We hope you have enjoyed it. Thank you also for emailing the photographs. It has been lovely seeing how excited the children are about it all. Hopefully you have still been able to find some books hiding if you are out and about over the weekend.

Maths: Please choose one of the dotted activities on the maths sheet. Once completed, please sign and date the sheet beside the chosen task.

Glow: The children have been issued with their Glow emails and password. If you haven’t already done so, please help the children to log on and leave us a message. This will allow us to check that everyone can access Glow at home. Further details can be found here.

H&WB: March school targets are being set with the children. If your child’s February target has been achieved, please set a new one for March with them.

  1. P.E. will be on Monday and Friday. Please remember long hair should be tied back and earrings removed or covered.
