Diamonds' Class

Autumn 2017/18 - DIAMONDS CLASS Year 1/2

Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome back everyone - I hope you have had time to relax and put your feet up - ready for the glitziest half term of the year.


Things to remember:


  • School times – 8.45am – 3.15pm. Classroom doors are open from 8:35. Please leave your children at the entrance to the classroom.
  • Uniform – please make sure ALL items of clothing are named, including coats and hats. I am handed lots of jumpers/cardigans which aren’t named.
  • PE– Wednesday and Thursday. Every Wednesday afternoon your child will be taking part in dance sessions, Thursday sessions will be basketball. It is important that your child has their indoor and outdoor PE kit for these sessions.
  • Homework will be given out on a Friday and due in on the following Wednesday- please support your child with this where possible.
  • Weekly spellings will be given out on a Friday (with homework) to be practised at home ready for a test on Friday.
  • Your child will have two instant recall target facts (SMIRFs) for maths and these are found at the back of their reading record. Please support your child to practise these at home ready to be tested at least fortnightly in school. If you have any questions regarding the SMIRF targets, please do not hesitate to ask. If you don’t have your child’s targets please let me know and I can get them for you.
  • Daily reading – your child will bring home a reading book each day, please sign in your child’s reading record and indicate pages read.  We are also completing a reading challenge this year – each time your child reads at home they will get a point. When your child reaches 21 points they will receive a special prize!
