We will send out home learning tasks to support our learning at school in all areas of the curriculum. This is linked to our project learning and is usually sent out at the start of a new project.
Children will also be given maths home learning tasks as appropriate to their class.
Children will bring home reading books from school, and reading regularly with them can make a real difference to their progress. Every child in Team 2 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.
If you have any queries about home learning, please ask.
We have PE sessions on a Monday afternoon and a Wednesday afternoon, but it is useful for the children to have their PE kit in school every day.
PE kit should include: a white t-shirt, dark shorts (and track suit bottoms when it gets colder), and well-fitting plimsoles or trainers. It is useful to put in socks if your child has worn tights to school. 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 are asked to bring a named water bottle into school each day to ensure that they stay hydrated.
Groups of children have outdoor learning opportunities everyday so please ensure that they have a suitable coat with them in school.
