September 2022 - July 2023
P.E is now on Tuesday and Thursday this term!

This term our topic question is Why are rainforests important to us?

Gentle Reminders!

  • Children need to wear their PE kit to school on PE days.  PE is on Tuesday and Thursday this term.
  • Earrings and jewellery must be removed and long hair tied back please.
  • Water bottles and fruit can be brought each day.


Children are also expected to read each day, either on their own or with someone else. Reading with your child or discussing what they've read, for even a few minutes a day, really helps them to develop their love of reading as well as their confidence in learning generally.  If you would like further advice about this, or suggestions of books, please do ask. When you do read with your child please complete their Reading Record. The Reading Record needs to be in school every day too as we often discuss with the children what they are reading outside of class. 

Here are some questions you might want to ask your child about what they've been reading:

Tell me, is there anything you like about the book?

Is there anything that you particularly dislike?

Is there anything that puzzles you? Do you have any questions?

Does it remind you of anything you know, in stories or real life?
