Dear Parents and Carers,

· PSHE – Me and my relationships and mutual respect

· P.E. – Swimming and gymnastics

· R.E. – Hinduism and Diwali

· Art – Drawing and painting.

Things to remember:

  • School times – 8.45am – 3.15pm. Classroom doors are open from 8:35.
  • Uniform – please make sure ALL items of clothing are named, including coats and hats.
  • PE– Tuesday and Wednesday. Every Tuesday afternoon your child will be taking part in swimming sessions so must remember their swimming kit. On Wednesday your child will be taking part in a gymnastic session. It is important that your child has their indoor 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. If you have any problems completing this, please let me know.
  • Weekly spellings will be given out on a Monday to be practised at home ready for a test on Friday. These spellings will be based around an age appropriate spelling rule.
  • 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 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. It is your child’s responsibility to change their book and hand in their reading record daily. This year we are completing a reading challenge– each time your child reads at home AND hands in their reading record they will receive a stamp. When your child reaches 21 stamps they will receive a special prize!


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see me or get in touch, the door is always open! 

Thank you for your support.
