Elmer, Avacado baby, Burglar Bill, We’re going on a bear hunt, Five minutes peace, The singing mermaid and Perfectly Norman.
We will also be doing PE, sessions with the sports coach and beginning our Forest School journey.
As always, we place huge emphasis on the importance of regular reading practice both in and out of school. Every child will be allocated a Reading Practice group and will read three times with their group each week. Books will be changed each Monday.
Please ensure that your child brings their reading practice book and reading record to school each day so that we can assess and record their progress appropriately. Hearing your child read at least 3x a week is very valuable in developing their reading skills and their love of reading! We cannot emphasise this enough!!
As we start the school year we will begin the next step in our phonics journey. Our daily lessons will take the same format and build on the phonics teaching from Reception. This progresses quickly and so practicing new sounds and spellings is vital. More information about our expectations for reading and spelling and how you can support your child at home will be sent home in a separate letter.
Children will be doing PE on different days throughout the term, so it is important that your child has their PE kit in school every week so that they can fully engage in activities. We will be doing some PE lessons outdoors, so please ensure your child has a pair of plimsols or trainers with their PE kit in school.
