These need to be learnt during the half term in preparation for a test on each Friday.
Other items to remember:
P.E. is on Wednesday so ensure that your child has a P.E. kit in school on this day. Your child should have a white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers or pumps.
Each child will have a day when they will read to Mr Drinkwater. It is VERY IMPORTANT that your child has their book in school on this day as this will be their only opportunity during the week to change it. However, they should have their reading book in school every day in case other opportunities to read arise. You should continue to read with your child on a regular basis and ask questions about what has been read. It is not necessary to read all of the book every night rather it is more beneficial to read 2 or 3 pages, or a chapter in larger books, and then discuss what they have read taking the opportunity to find out the meaning of unfamiliar words or concepts. It is expected that children will change their reading books AT LEAST once every 2 weeks.
Should you wish to discuss your child's progress or any issues, it would be helpful if you could see me AFTER school.
