PE Days
We will be keeping active throughout the week but would ask that children be sent to school wearing their PE kits on a Friday when we will have an extended session.  The children will be able to wear this all 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.  The children will have an opportunity to change their reading books in the afternoons independently, after they have read it three times. We hear each child read everyday as part of our Read Write Inc sessions. We regularly assess each child and when they are ready to move onto the next colour band we will indicate this in their diary.

Please see our separate Read Write Inc page for information and resources to support your child at home.

Seesaw

We use Seesaw to record and share what's happening in the classroom. Every child will have their own journal to upload photographs, videos and drawings. We will also use the platform to keep you updated about events and with ways that you can support your child at home.

You will have been sent details of how to login but if you have any questions please do get in touch. 

Here is a link to an introduction to Seesaw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzlrtDR84KY
