Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.

Please label all clothing and belongings.


Physical Education (PE)

Our P.E day is Friday, please ensure your child comes in to school on Friday wearing their P.E Kit. School uniform for P.E is a white t-shirt, black or navy-blue shorts  and black pumps or trainers. Your child may require something warmer to wear if the weather is colder. This could include black or navy-blue jogging trousers, a sweatshirt and trainers. Please ensure that all items of kit are clearly labelled with your child’s name.  For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.



Homework will generally be sent out on Friday and returned by the following Thursday. We will send out paper copies and add it to Google Classroom as well. Homework is used to consolidate your child’s learning from that week. Please support your child with their homework where needed. 



We will continue to send home reading books closely matched to your child’s phonic phase, but will start alternating phonetically decodable books with non-decodable books. Non-decodable books will give your child the opportunity to read more of a range of books and encounter more high frequency words. Your child will be able to change their book every day if they bring their reading bag into school. It is our hope that if the children are reading books more frequently then they will become more fluent, independent readers.  As the reading books get longer (Purple level onwards) we encourage children to read the books in manageable chunks at home, judged by yourselves, rather than all in one night. All children will be expected to return their book at least once a week. Please try to read with your child regularly throughout the week, keeping a record of the pages they have read and a parent or carer signature in their diary.



Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 1/2 spellings by the end of the year. They also need to learn any spelling patterns and rules that are taught in class and then sent home.
