Miss Macaulay works Monday to Friday.
Book bags and Letters
Please bring book bags in each day which contain letter formation, shape and number cards to practise letter and number formation. There is also a Letters and Sounds booklet to practise the actions for the sounds we have been learning. We begin to practise pre-cursive handwriting during the Reception year ready to begin joining the letters in Year 1. Letters will now be sent home electronically and you will receive a text message with a link for you to access the newsletter.
In our class we have additional adults who help to support the children. Mrs Hulbert and Mrs Brown are our class teaching assistants. Mrs Clark and Mrs Edwards will also be helping us.
We have PE on Tuesday and Thursdays where the children will need to bring a pair of shorts and a t-shirt to wear, as well as an outdoor appropriate PE kit such as jogging bottoms, t-shirt and daps/trainers. We will send these home to be washed each half term holiday.
Please can all children bring in a named water bottle to use during the day and these will be sent home each day. We do encourage children to drink water at school instead of juice or squash.
Reading with the Children
Each week the children will bring home a colour-banded reading book and a decodable reading book (with words that can be sounded out) as well as a picture book from the classroom. Books will be changed weekly. There will be a coloured bookmark with suggested questions to support their reading and understanding of the book. Please feel free to write any comments in the reading record book, or just initial that the children have read with you.
