General information

PE

We have 2 PE sessions each week. The first lesson is on a Tuesday afternoon and the second slot with Little Sports is on a Thursday afternoon. Children need PE kit appropriate for inside and outisde PE each week. 

Homework

Homework will be sent home on a Monday and is due back on a Friday. This year children will be expected to practise spellings which allign with the phonics they have been working on that week. There will also be another short activity to accompany the spellings. Children should be encouraged to have a go at this task independently but a little support may be required. 

myHappymind

As a school we have recently started to use the MyHappyMind programme. You should have recieved a letter with some more information about this. We hope you will have a look at this at home to support your childs understanding. The aim of myHappyMind is to create a culture of positive mental wellbeing. 

Reading

 We read every day at school, in many different ways. Your child will read with an adult at school at least twice a week. You can support your child's reading at home by reading every night. This can be just a few pages and having a chat about what they have read. Below are some reading lists for year 1 and year 2 with some book suggestions for wider reading.
