Children should have their bookbag in school everyday. Please try and keep their reading book and reading record in the bookbag ready for when we read with them.
After half term, children will earn the class a spot on the reading rocket everytime they read with an adult at home. Please make a quick comment in your child’s reading record so we know when they have read. When we reach 100 we will get a prize!
Our trip to Wilderness Wood is on 12th March. Please make sure you have returned the permission slip. You can pay for the trip o Parent Pay. If you can help on the trip please speak to Mrs Souttar or Mrs Prichard.

Apple and Cherry class will have PE on a Wednesday
Children will need a white PE top and shorts in a PE bag. Please name all items as you can imagine what it might be like with thirty children getting changed at the same time!

Learning at Home
Each Friday your child will bring home new letters and sounds we have been learning. Please practise these at home.
Every week your child will read with us 1:1. We will help them change their reading book which is levelled appropriately for them. When they read with you at home, please fill in their reading journal.
To help your child with maths at home:
Practice counting up to 10 (then 20) objects. e.g. Laying the table for 4 people, counting steps, counting the pairs of socks that come out the wash etc.
How many ways can they make 10? What happens when you take objects away or add some on?
Can you spot numbers around you? (recognising numerals)
Play games with dice/dominoes – encourage your child to spot number patterns.
