Welcome back after the half term holiday and we hope you have had a lovely break. Even though this half term is short, it is still busy so please check the calendar and website for up to date information.
This half term Key Stage 1 children will be doing a Mothering Sunday presentation for their moms on Friday 9th March. A separate letter has been sent home regarding this. The week beginning Monday 26th February is also parent evenings so please ensure you have booked an appointment to see your child's Maths and English teachers.
On Thursday 1st March it is World Book Day. To celebrate, in Year 1 and 2 we would like the children to dress up as their favourite book character and bring in their favourite book. A letter was sent home before the half term holiday.
Curriculum overviews will be sent home during the first week which will explain what your child will be learning this half term.
Important reminders for Year 1 and 2
PE kits will need to be back in school by Monday 26th February and we will send them home again when we break up for the Easter holidays. A reminder that PE days are Mondays and Tuesdays and earrings need to be removed for PE lessons.
A reminder that we expect children to read at home at least once a week and this needs to be recorded in the link book. We will change home reading books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and children are responsible for handing in their reading books to be changed.
Homework is sent home on a Friday and it needs to be handed in no later than the following Wednesday. For Year 2 children who do not hand in their homework, the children will miss Thursday lunchtime play to complete the homework.
