Hello and welcome to the Summer term, our topics this term are Marvellous Maps and Global Gardens, more information will follow on the curriculum newsletter. Also coming this term is a parent workshop and our year 2 production, look out for details on the weekly newsletters.
PE - Your child will need their PE kit in a named bag hanging on their peg; this should be in school everyday. We try to go outside when the weather is dry, so as well as a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, your child will also need a pair of jogging bottoms or leggings; they will need plimsolls or trainers to run around in. PE sessions for this term will be on a Monday and Wednesday.
Show and Tell has been replaced with talks (Easter holiday homework), there is a timetable for your child to sign up for their talk; these will still be on a Tuesday.
Forest School happens fortnightly in KS1, usually on a Wednesday afternoon (this does change sometimes.) Our Summer term sessions are on the 8th May, 22nd May, 12th June, 26th June, 10th July and Monday 22nd July. Your child will need a warm change of clothes (layers are good) that you don't mind getting muddy, a pair of wellies or old trainers, a waterproof coat and a spare bag for dirty boots, all of which needs to be in a bag on your child's peg. Look out for the Forest School poster in the classroom window.
Your child should be reading daily to an adult, which can then be recorded in their green reading record book. This needs to be in school everyday and placed in the green reading box as you come into the classroom in the morning. If your child reads their library book, a book of their own, listens to a story tape/CD or any kind of reading related activity, please also note it in their green reading record book.
We go to the school library on a Friday. Your child can choose either a fiction or non-fiction book to take home. This needs to be returned each week even if that is just to check it out again. Miss Burtenshaw runs an afternoon session on a Monday from 3.15pm until 4pm for you to go to library with your child.
Homework is given out on a Friday in a folder, it needs to be completed by the following Thursday at the latest, returned in the folder and placed in the yellow tray.
If you have any questions, please feel free to come in and speak to Mrs Bassett, Miss Burtenshaw, Mrs Courlander or Mrs Murphy.
