General information for the start of term,
As we start a new school year, I am so looking forward to working in partnership with you to benefit your child. Here is some information that we hope you will find helpful.
This term we are having a focus on reading and as a part of this initiative we will be having a class FOX who will encourage the children to read in school and at home. When he comes to your home there will also be a Julia Donaldson book and a note of the focus for the night’s visit.
Please could your child bring their book bag to school every day and their reading book, reading record. Your child will bring home HF words (High Frequency words) and spelling during the term. We will also occasionally send home Maths/ Phonics games or topic work. High Frequency Words are the words that occur most often in reading books, so knowing them by sight will help your child gain pace and fluency in their reading. These HF (high frequency words) are on card and in a little bag and we will tick them when we check them in class but they will not be changed until they have read them at speed several times. Ideally you should hear your child read three times a week and a note made in their Reading Record Book. Reading little and often will help your child in all areas of their learning.
Our school PE kit is black daps, white or red tops and black shorts. In winter you can also add a long-sleeved top in black, white or grey, a hoodie and joggers or leggings in similar colours. PE will normally take place on Wednesdays and Fridays and we will keep their kits on their pegs for the term. Forest Schools is on Tuesdays, so please bring in every Tuesday trouser, wellies, a long-sleeved top, spare socks, a coat, and spare plastic bag as these clothes may get wet and muddy!
Our weather is always changing, and we love to get outside at playtimes and for outdoor learning opportunities so please always bring a labelled coat or rain mac.
Please send your child in with a labelled water bottle. Your child can refill their water bottles during the day. In addition to the fruit snack provided for your children in the afternoon you might wish to send in a healthy snack for morning break. Every child in KS1 are able to order a hot school dinner daily.
Please ensure you label everything including their snack pots and PE kit as this make it easier and quicker in class to ensure children bring home their own belongings.
If, at any time, you have any questions or concerns please speak to me and I am sure together we can find a solution
Mrs Rylatt (Beeches Class teacher)
