Children who are fluent readers, really can access much more of the curriculum independently. Reading is therefore very important to us. Children will bring home reading books from school, and reading for five or ten minutes a day with them can make a real difference with their progress. Every child in Team 3 receives a reading record at the start of the year. This is used to record any reading the children do at home or at school. Children who read 3 times a week at home will receive a gold star, these will help them to earn reading prizes!
PE and Swimming
Although we have PE sessions on a Tuesday, it is useful for the children to have their PE kit in school every day- Please ensure it is in school on a Monday and then taken home each weekend.
PE kit should include: a white t-shirt, dark shorts (and track suit bottoms when it gets colder), and well-fitting plimsoles or trainers. These must be different from the clothes and shoes that are worn for the school day. Please ensure that all clothing has your child's name in it, as occasionally children get things mixed up with each other.
Children in Team 3 will also be going swimming each Wednesday morning.
Children are asked to bring a named water bottle into school each day to ensure that they stay hydrated.
