Firstly, we would like to say a huge thank you for getting your children to school and on time! It is fantastic that everyone in 3.1 is ready to start their learning at 9am.
We have had a very busy first few weeks with the children getting used to being taught by both Mrs Curtis (Mon-Weds) and Mrs Priestley (Thurs-Fri) but they have adapted amazingly.
We just thought we'd remind you of a few new things now your children have started the grown up world of KS2 life!
Reading Books and bags
We are very lucky in KS2 to be using the Accelerated Reading scheme where your child gets to select which book they would like to take home to read, like their own personal book shop! So, could we please ask that all children have a book bag, preferably a school one, to carry them to and from school so they stay in good condition.
Please make an extra effort now to read with your children at home as well as encouraging them to read their books independently. When they complete their book they will take a comprehension quiz on the computer and need to score 85% just to pass, so you can see how important it is to support them with their reading! Prizes will be awarded to those who score 100% in their quiz.
3.1 are going swimming every Thursday afternoon until Christmas so please make sure they bring their swimming kits in on that day.
Please also send a PE kit in so if we can't go swimming one week for any reason, we can still do PE.
Dance Club - Monday 3.30 - 4.30
An amazing 13 of our class have been lucky enough to be granted a place in dance club after school. Please make sure they have their PE kits or they will not be able to take part.
Lastly, if you have any problems or questions we can help you with, please don't hesitate to make an appointment with either one of us.
