Miss Macaulay works Monday to Friday but is covered by Mrs Bowditch on a Monday
Book bags and Letters
Please bring book bags in each day, any letters between home and school are put in the book bags at the end of the day. Letter, shape and number cards are also included in book bags to practise letter and number formation.
Teaching Assistants and Cover Time
In our class we have additional adults who help to support the children. Mrs Hulbert is our teaching assistant on Mondays and Tuesdays, Mrs Brown works with us Wednesday to Friday.
On a Monday morning and Thursday afternoon the children will need their PE kits to change for PE, these are then kept in school and sent home at half-term.
Please can all children bring in a named water bottle to use during the day. These will stay in school during term time and are rinsed and refilled each morning.
Reading with the Children
We aim to read with the children and change their reading book at least once during the school week. As the children settle into routines we aim to read with each child twice per week individually and once per week in a small guided reading group. Reading at home has such a positive impact on the children’s progress and it would really help your child to read several times a week together at home. Please feel free to write any comments in the reading record book, or just initial that the children have read with you. Books from the library or home can be read in addition to school books.
Sound Books and Word Books
During the first term at school we will be giving out sound and word books. These books contain the sounds and words we have been learning each week, we would be grateful if you could find some time to practise these.
