Weekly Note – Week Commencing 19th June 2017

Dear Parents/Carers,

We hope the children have enjoyed EPIC week. They have all been fantastic and participated enthusiastically in all the different activities. Many thanks to all parents who gave up their time to help. Your support is very much appreciated.

Maths

Next week we will be starting to work on reading ‘time’ using both analogue and digital clocks.   Any additional work you can do at home reading clocks to the hour, half hour and quarter hours will help the children greatly.  We will also begin to solve problems involving time, such as ‘I got in the pool at 2 o’clock and swam for half an hour.  What time did I get out?’

Phonic/Spelling Homework

With the slightly reduced curriculum time this week we did not have our full coverage of phonics lessons so there will be no spellings set this week. The children could continue to revisit spellings from previous weeks.

Sports Day

We are looking forward to our Sports day next Tuesday 20th and hoping the good weather holds for us. The children can come to school in PE kit but please can they wear a T shirt or shorts in their class colour. They must also have a hat.

Sponsored Swim – Thursday 29th and Friday 30th June

Sponsored swim will take place during normal swimming lessons. Mrs Page’s class and Mrs Ash’s class will be doing their sponsored swim on the afternoon of Thursday 29th June  and Mrs Ashworth’s class on Friday 30th at 11 am.

You are very welcome to come along and watch your child swim. Please could you ensure that sponsorship forms are returned to class teachers no later than Tuesday 27th June.

Pirate Open Day

On Tuesday 11th July we are planning a day of pirate themed activities. The children are invited to come to school dressed as pirates on this day.

Thank you for your continued support

Sun Safety

Now that the weather is hot and sunny (and we hope it lasts!) please could you ensure that your child brings a sun hat to school every day. Children are out in the fresh air for playtimes and lunchtimes as well as learning outside so it is important that they are protected from the sun. We do have a small supply of spare hats which children will wear if they forget theirs.

Please could you also ensure that suncream is applied everyday before school.

Thank you for your support.
