Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back to the new term. Please find attached an overview of the learning planned for terms 1 & 2 within our topic of “Once Upon a Time”.
To enhance our topic and learning we would like children to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. This could be from one of the traditional tales we will be learning about. Please do not bring any accessories. This will be on Friday 16th October.
As we go along the children’s interests may take us in new directions and we will look for opportunities to develop these interests and extend their learning. If you are able to help in school or contribute your knowledge to our topic, we would love to hear from you.
In Willow class, we would like children to read their books every night and you can record this in their reading log. For every week that your child reads 5 times they will receive a Sapphire gem. As the term goes on we will send home keywords and some phonics for you to practise at home. Please bring the book bag to school each day with the reading books so that we can read them during school time.
This term we have PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday, children should come to school in PE kit on both days. They can wear trainers or daps (preferably blue or black), a Tickenham PE top and blue or black shorts, skort, leggings or joggers. We will be adding embroidered hoodies to our PE kit list which will be available to order from Monsoon shortly so please do order one if you’d like your child to wear one during PE lessons. Long hair should be tied back every day.
If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s education, please do not hesitate to contact us.
With thanks for your continued support.
