How to help at home

Reading regularly at home with your child makes has such an impact. This should not be restricted to books given by the school – why not explore magazines or newspapers together?

Show and Tell is on Fridays this half term. The rota has been sent home. Please talk with your child about what they have chosen to bring in and help them to be able to explain in greater detail about their item. The children ask each other questions during this time - so the more information your child has the better.

Play counting games, spotting numbers out and about, asking your child the time (half hour and the hour) and asking them to count loose change.

When helping your child with their writing, ensure you encourage proper formation of letters, finger spaces between words and basic punctuation.

Don’t forget, if you are signed up, to record as many learning experiences as you can using your Children’s University passport.

Please ensure PE kits are sent in to school on Monday. They will be sent home on Fridays. When it is nice weather, the children will have PE outside so please ensure children have trainers or plimsols that fit them comfortably. For parents/carers of children who have long hair it would be useful if you could put spare hair bands or scrunchies in the PE bag so we can tie long hair back for safety. Also, we are finding that many of the clothes are not named so please check to see whether tags have fallen out or writing become too faded to read.


Reading books are changed on a Monday and Friday, please ensure your child has their book in school on these days. If their book requires changing at other times the children should be reminded to put it in the blue tray in the classroom.

Written work will be sent home on a Wednesday. My Maths online homework will also be sent on a Wednesday.

Homework should be completed and books handed in on Mondays.
