Important information:

Reading Books

Children all have a reading diary and reading book which comes home in their book bag each day. We encourage children to read at home each night. When your child has read at home can you sign and date their diary and write a comment so that we know how they are finding their reading at home.

PE

PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has a white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers for PE. In the winter you may provide jogging bottoms to wear if PE is outside. If your child wears tights regularly please provide a pair of socks. Earrings must be taken out, if this can not be done then please provide plasters to wear over the earrings.

Phonics

Please work with your children regularly to ensure they know the phase 3 and phase 5 sounds. This is essential to help boost their learning. See ‘useful documents’ below for resources. We also have all of our children signed up to ‘Teach Your Monster To Read’ If you wish for more information about this, please don’t hesitate to ask.

KIRFS

Children should learn these Key Instant Recall Facts off by heart. Children will be tested on these within the appropriate half term. Please practice these skills regularly. Those children who have achieved the KIRF will receive a certificate for their efforts. Please click here for information: KIRFS

To support Y2 with their recall of multiplication facts in preparation for the KS2 check, we have provided each child with a log in for ‘Times Table Rockstars’ If you wish for more information about this, please don’t hesitate to ask.
