P.E will take place every Tuesday and Friday.
Every Monday we will send home a 'Shared Reader' book for parents and children to enjoy together. Initially, these will be predominantly read together and children will be able to talk about the pictures and make predictions about the text. As children become more confident with their reading they will be able to read the book with much more independence, however they may require support from parents in some instances. This book will not only develop children's reading skills but their love of reading too.
Every Friday, we will be sending home or adding Maths home learning to Class Dojo. We will also be sending home a 'Little Wandle' Reading Practice book, which the children will have read 3 times throughout the week in school. These books MUST be returned every Monday.
Each time you read with your child please ensure you sign, date, comment in the yellow reading diary.
Each half term, children will be set a range of home learning activities which can be completed over the holiday period.
Class Dojo is a great way to keep in touch with what's happening at school and to contact members of the Reception Team.
