Things to Remember

Monday is PE for Miss Carr's class.
Wednesday is PE for Mrs O'leary's class

Reading books are to be changed weekly and your child is to read these at home and for you to write in their diary that they have done so. 

Spellings are to be given out each Friday and will be tested the following Friday. These spellings will be in accordance with your child's Phonics group and they will work on these throughout the week in lessons. If you could do so at home too. 

Knowledge organisers are handed out to the children at the start of each new Geography or History topic. If you could assist your child with learning these it will help them in class and continue their learning outside of school.
