For your information:

  • PE day is Friday- please ensure PE kit is in school and hair is tied back.
  • Children require a Wild Woods kit every Monday.
  • Please ensure that you write in your child’s Home School Link book every time they read their book- we will change their book when they have read it at least 3 times at home.
  • Please continue to practice the Phase 2 sounds with your children at home, along with the high frequency and tricky words. We are currently learning our Phase 3 sounds and tricky words- please begin to practice these too!  The children love Mr Thorne on YouTube, he has videos on all of the Phase 2 and 3 sounds.
  • We write in precursive handwriting, the more practice the children get the better! (You can find the letters in their Home School Link book).
  • Marvellous Me box- Children need to fill the box with their special things (they will share these with the class). Please return the box to school as soon as they have filled it.
  • Billy the Bear- Please take pictures of some of the things Billy gets up to whilst he is with you. We suggest that the children keep him for around 1 week.
