We are fast approaching the end of the year now and I’d just like to say how proud I am of how grown up you have all become in this last half term. We have been working our socks off to try to be the best we can be, taking on challenges and pushing our brains ever further forward. We have lots to look forward to before we finish the year so keep up the hard work and be proud of all you have achieved!
Important things to remember:
- PE kits should be in school all week, taken home at the weekends for washing if necessary.
- Reading – your child needs to show they have read AT LEAST 3 TIMES each week, with one of the signatures/comments in their book being from an adult that has heard them read. The other comments can be from your child, saying which page they’re up to and what they have enjoyed or are finding difficult. Their reading diary needs to be in school EVERY DAY.
- Creative homework – please bring this in on the dates written at the bottom of the sheet
- No jewellery except a watch. Earrings must be taken out before school to avoid any injuries.
- Water bottles – your child should bring a bottle in on Mondays and take it home to be washed on Fridays. Cups are provided if your child has forgotten their bottle but this is not the most hygienic way to do it.
- ENJOY SCHOOL! If we follow our golden rules and show care and respect for all, we’ll continue to enjoy our time and finish the year on a high!
We have been learning our 3, 4 and 8 times tables this year, in addition to the 2, 5 and 10 times tables learnt in year 2.
We’ve found a great way to help us! We’re learning them with a variety of characters from the BBC.
