Elephant Class

 

 We hope you all had a lovely summer break and are ready for the new school year. We have missed you all dearly during lockdown and are eager to continue your learning journey with you in person once again! We will be having lots of fun learning this term with our exciting new topic work. Details of our new topic will be coming out later this week!

Things to remember:

Break Time

If your child would like a snack at break time please provide them with fruit.

 

Reading books

We are unable to send reading books home at the moment. However, your child will read in school and they can still share one of their books with you at home. Reading is so important, please, please, please listen to your child read often as possible. We are hoping to have an online reading scheme to share with you very soon.

 

We will be reading The Thieves of Ostia by Caroline Lawrence in class this term. You may wish to purchase a copy so that your child can read it themselves at home as well. Or you may wish to explore other books in the Roman Mysteries series by the same author. These books will have to stay at home. 

 

Learning Logs

Learning will stay at home. Homework will be uploaded onto Jotter Learn on a Thursday for the children to complete in their Learning Logs. Unfortunately Learning Logs will need to stay at home until government guidance changes. Spelling tests will take place on a Wednesday in school. Children can practice their spellings on Spelling Shed at home. Timetables Rockstars is still brilliant for practicing times tables at home. Remember to complete 10 sound checks to get your baseline speed.

Library books

We are unable to visit the school library at the moment.

 

PE

We will have PE on Mondays and Tuesdays. Children will need to come to school in their P.E. kits on these days. P.E. will take place outdoors as much as possible. Children will need to wear black tracksuit trousers, their yellow P.E. t-shirt, their school jumper and trainers. Can we remind the girls that they also need a hair band to tie their hair back if it is long and tape to cover pierced earrings.

 

Water Bottles

All children need to bring a named water bottle to school each day. All our water fountains are closed so this is vitally important. These bottle will be taken home each night to be cleaned and refilled at home.

 

Best wishes
