How to help at home

  • Please try to hear your child read at least four times a week.  Record any comments in your child's individual reading record.   
  • A couple of useful phonics and reading websites are:
    http://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/
    (Phase 5 games will embed current Year 1 learning.)
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/shows/alphablocks
    http://www.oxfordowl.co.uk
    (You have to register to access the above site... however it is free and has access to over 250 ebooks which are tablet friendly!)
     

Important reminders

PE
Our PE days are every Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure that your child has appropriate PE kit in school and that this is clearly labelled.

Green spelling books - new spellings will be given out on a Monday and tested on a Friday.  
Volunteering
If you are interested in volunteering in school please come in and see us; we love having helpers in!
(You will need to be DBS checked, if you haven't already been checked please see Mrs Stephenson in the office.)

With many thanks for your continued support. Mrs Campbell and team.
