PE Days
Our PE days change on a regular basis so please could you ensure that your child has the correct PE kit in school every day.
Home Learning
Children are expected to read at home for 10 minutes each day (little and often is best); please discuss the text with your child and make a record of what they have read in their reading diary.  These diaries will be checked regularly by us and Mrs Tuohy although we may not write in them as we keep separate detailed notes. The children will have an opportunity to change their reading books in the afternoons independently. We regularly assess each child’s reading and when they are ready to move onto the next colour band we will indicate this in their diary.

The children will be given spellings on a Friday which they will bring home to practise. These will consolidate and introduce the phonemes taught in Year 1. They will be informally assessed after they have had a chance to practise them in school and at home with your support.  We would encourage children to learn all of the words given and where possible to apply these spellings to writing sentences; but please do come and discuss this with us if you have any concerns.
