Forest School is every Monday afternoon. Please could children bring appropriate clothing and footwear to change into before we head to the forest! We go in almost all weather, so it is essential children have the right clothing for the weather, including waterproofs and wellies and warm clothing during the Winter months.
PE is on Wednesday. We ask that children come to school in their PE kit which should include a t-shirt to match the colour of the house they are in and trainers. There are other PE sessions throughout the year that may not happen on a Wednesday, such as dance and gymnastics in the hall. If PE kit is required on a different day we shall let you know.
The most important thing children in Nethercote class can do at home is read and be read to. The expectation is that children in Key Stage 1 read at leas four times a week for 15 minutes. Alongside reading their school reading books children should be listening to reading material they are unable to read independently to expose them to the rich language and ideas we find in such books.
Children should be spending short bursts of time on Numbots weekly, little and often is the best approach here. There will be maths homework to support the learning that has happened in class that week on Google Classroom every Friday. This can be uploaded onto Google Classroom when complete or brought into school.
Thank you for you continued support and I look forward to another exciting term full of fun and learning!
