The children have come back full of energy and enthusiasm and look very smart in their Storth uniform. Please can you check all items of clothing are named.
As customary, we would like to outline the topic and activities we will be covering this half term so that you have an involvement in your child’s learning.
This half term our topic is ‘Holidays.’ We are currently planning a trip to an interesting home in our locality… details to follow.
Forest School continues to take place on Fridays, please ensure that a spare set of clothes are available in school each day as well as a waterproof coat and a pair of wellington boots that can be left in the conservatory.
The children will continue to be able to choose a library book to take home on a Monday. A new book can be chosen when their previous one is returned. All the children have been given new reading books and have the opportunity to change these on Mondays.
PE is on Monday and Thursday afternoons, please leave PE kits in school .
Please ensure that only water is in your child ’s water bottle within the classroom (unless you have discussed an alternative with us.) The children have access to this throughout the day and take it with them to PE.
Fruit is provided for year 1 and 2 at morning break. Parents are more than welcome to provide fruit to suit individual requirements.
Here are some ideas to support your child at home:
- Encourage daily reading (school or home books, magazines)
- Writing (stories, diaries, recounts)
- Cooking (reading instructions, weighing and measuring)
- Shopping (using coins and getting change)
- Telling the time
- Help the children develop their typing skills. This helps speed up computing
lessons no end. BBC Dance /mat typing program is free.
- Looking at maps and finding out about different countries
- Going for a walk and looking at different styles of houses
We are always on the look out for people to help in school with a whole range of activities. Please come and chat with us if you know of someone who might be keen.
We look forward to working with your children and yourselves in the year ahead.
