What we are learning this year
If you click the image it will open up a larger version in a new window. It can also be downloaded in PDF format at the bottom of the page.
Information can be found by clicking on the yellow tabs below.
Once children have secured enough phonics sounds, they will receive a RW Inc. reading book. Practise the red and green words at the front of the book with your child and then read the story. It is important to do this at least three time to develop fluency and expression. Please make a comment in their blue diaries to say you have read.
Why read to your child?
For further information, please see the following links:
We use the following letter formation from Debbie Hepplewhite
Please bring these to school every day. Children should have their Reading Diary and any books, Ditty Sheets or Tricky Words in them. Please make sure you are writing in their Reading Diary too!
Our uniform information can be found HERE. Please ensure all articles of clothing have names in. We do our best to help children keep track of their items, but we need your help with this.
PE Kits stay in school, and we send them home once every half-term to be washed. For information about our kit, see the UNIFORM information.
Water Bottles and Snacks
Please provide a reusable water bottle with your child's name on it. This should only be for water. Children can also bring in a healthy snack and drink for breaktime if they wish, but fruit is supplied daily.
