Welcome back to school for the summer term Boreal Owls! Please note the following important information for this term:
PE Days - PE days will be - Tuesday (Mr Sykes) Thursday (Mr Sykes) and Friday (tennis with Neil) this term. Please come to school dressed in PE kit on those days. Please make sure high standards of PE kit are maintained for these sessions and the children are not wearing clothes with large logos on. Sunhats/ caps should be sent in to school too and sunscreen applied in the morning. Please could any children with earrings either remove them on these days before school, or be able to remove them independently before the lesson.
Spellings - Spellings will be tested on a Monday morning. The new spelling lists for each group (Kit Kat, Twirl and Bounty) are ready to be downloaded for this term below. There will not be a spelling test in this first week back.
Homework - Will remain the same as earlier in the year - given out on a Friday and returned by Wednesday. There will not be any homework in the first weekend back.
Reading - Children should be reading at least three times a week at home and recording it in their reading diary. As the children get older and become more independent, we are happy for them to record this themselves. Please encourage them to read regularly, even if they are not reading to you anymore.
Class Reading Book - To tie in with our new topic, All Around The World, we will be reading the fantastic 'Girl Who Stole An Elephant' by Nizrana Farook. If you would like to purchase a copy for your child to read in class it is available here for £5.79 - Amazon. It is entirely voluntary to buy a copy for your child but your support is hugely appreciated by us if you can. Reading a book together like this as a class is such an enjoyable activity and the children really dive much deeper into the narrative and learn more about the characters, setting and plot this way. The conversations that we hear the children having about the books both in and outside of the classroom are so exciting for us as teachers. Thank you for helping us!
Summer weather - As the weather warms up (fingers crossed!) please make sure that your child has a water bottle in school and a sun hat for outdoor learning. Please try to apply sunscreen before they come to school in the morning.
Any questions at all, then of course please ask one of us at the end of the day. We are looking forward to a productive and enjoyable Summer term!
Mrs Pinto and Mrs Marah
