Welcome to Fox Class
I hope you have all had a relaxing and enjoyable Easter holiday. Once again, there is a busy term planned. The learning theme for terms 5 and 6 is ‘Faraway Fruits & Distant Dishes’. Please see the ‘Topic Web’, attached, for details.
For the Year 1s, the homework for Term 5 will be sent home this week. It is based on the idea of ‘Real and Nonsense words’. I hope that this will be useful revision for the Year 1 Phonics Screening Test in June and just as importantly for generally encouraging reading and enjoying words and word play. This will be the last homework pack that I give this year. In Year 2 your child will have weekly homework. For the Year 2s, there will be no homework sent out after their SATs, which will take place in the week beginning 6th May. Hopefully, everyone can then spend their free time enjoying the summer sunshine (I say hopefully)!
Your child will continue to have a spellings test every Friday. These spellings are based on the ‘Sounds-Write’ (phonics) work that they will have done in school. Please also continue to support your child with reading their reading books every day. It does make such a difference to their reading and writing development and we really appreciate any time you can dedicate to this. Please make sure that your child has their book bag and reading record in school every day.
As it is the summer term it is particularly important that all children have a NAMED water bottle containing water, in school every day, so that they can have easy access to a drink throughout the day. It would also be a good idea for your child to keep a hat/cap in their book bags. On very hot days, children who do not have a hat will have to say sitting in the shade during playtimes so that we can keep them safe. Please also make sure your child has applied sun cream before arriving in school, as we cannot apply sun cream for them in school.
We will be trying to get outside for PE as often as possible so please make sure they have suitable footwear for outdoor PE. Your child should have brought their PE bag home with them at the end of last term. Please check that it comes back to school with their full kit and that everything is named. PE will continue to take place on a Monday and Tuesday.
As always, if you have any questions or queries please come and talk to me. After school is the best time to catch me.
Many thanks for your support.
