Miss Crimp works Wednesday, Thursday & Friday.
In our class we have additional adults who help to support the children. Mrs Bullock is our teaching assistant every day and Miss Fairbanks works with us on a Wednesday morning.
Book bags and Letters
Please bring book bags in each day. School newsletters and any correspondence from school, will be shared through text message links and on our school website. If you require messages to be sent to parents who do not live in the same household please contact the office. Letter, shape and number cards are included in book bags to practise letter and number formation. Also included is a maths sheet focussing on mental maths key instant recall facts.
We have PE on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays where the children 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 send these home to be washed each half term holiday. We appreciate that getting changed can be tricky but we do encourage the children to begin to get changed independently, so practising at home will help getting changed for PE run more smoothly.
Please can all children bring in a named water bottle to use during the day. These will be sent home to be cleaned and refilled each day.
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.
