We expect all the children in this year to work hard. We have high expectations and hope you will support us, you can do this by:

 

Organisational aspects –

  • Ensuring that your child is at school on time and dressed appropriately;
  • Dinner money is sent to school via the Sims Agora online payment system
  • Make sure that your child wears PE kit to school on their PE days
  • All children may bring a healthy snack;
  • Encourage your child to be prepared for the school day with the correct equipment.

 

Educational aspects –

  • Ensure your child reads every single day for at least fifteen minutes, preferably aloud, to an adult
  • Encourage your child to research other words that match the week’s spelling rules, as well as learning the words sent home
  • Mathematics, encourage your child to practise the 4 operations (+, -, ÷, x), learn tables and use mathematical skills in everyday life, eg time and money.

 

Communication with your child’s class teacher can be made through the class email address.
