Our PE days are Thursdays and Fridays but as usual, PE kit should be in every day for those ‘just in case’ moments. No jewellery is to be worn for PE and all long hair should be tied back – both for safety reasons. For the times when we can go outside, shoes suitable for running in are very useful.
Please continue to check your child’s book bag daily for letters and other pieces of information.
Homework continues to be given on Monday to be handed in on Thursday; thank you to those of you who play a part in helping your child with this. Regular practice on times tables is essential, even if your child thinks s/he knows them. Some children still need to work on these.
The children are mostly keeping good records of what they have read and several children are practising spellings. The more you can encourage wider reading, the better.
Some additional time will be given to Reading, Maths and Grammar papers, particularly for Year 6, as we need to be preparing for our ‘National Showing Off’ week in May.
Again, thank you for your support in the time you spend on the ‘over and above’ - it all helps.
