Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope you all had a lovely half-term break. We are excited by all the events that are coming up over the new term. Our topic this term is 'Weather'. Please talk to your child about the weather daily, you could do this whilst walking to school. You could also watch the weather on the television and concentrate on different parts of the United Kingdom compared to London. This will prepare the children to talk about the weather when they get to school. If you have been lucky enough to travel, you could compare and contrast different weathers in different countries. Another great idea is to discuss the different seasons and physical changes that occur during the seasons.
Thank you for your contributions so far! The weekly cost of the Class Fund is £2. Please see a breakdown of the termly cost:
Autumn Term 1 - £14
Autumn Term 2 - £16
Whole of Autumn Term - £30
PE will be on Thursday afternoons, please make sure that your child brings in the appropriate clothing. They should have black jogging bottoms or leggings, a white t-shirt and black trainers. If your child wears tights, please make sure that they also have socks in their bag.
Please continue to read with your child every day and support them with their weekly homework.
Homework is set every Friday and needs to be completed by the following Friday. Book bags are changed on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. Please make ensure that your child brings their book bag to school on these days. If your child's book bag is lost, it is important that you provide them with a new one as soon as possible. Also, please do not forget that your child has access to 'Reading Eggs' and 'Mathletics'. Encourage your child to access these wonderful resources as certificates are given out weekly for participation and achievement!
We will continue to work on a 'Makaton' sign of the week. Please use the sign with your child in their day-to-day activities.
