Class Dojo

We will continue to use Class Dojo as a means of sending homework, messages, photographs of the children and for generally communicating with you.

Please ensure you have downloaded the app to your phone.

You are also able to contact me via Dojo messenger for any queries you may have.

Uniform



 

All pupils are expected to wear school uniform. 

Uniform is as follows:

  • White polo shirt/blouse/shirt
  • Grey skirt/pinafore/trousers
  • Royal blue cardigan/jumper/hoody (does not require the school logo)
  • Black shoes
 

On designated P.E. days, pupils are permitted to wear their P.E. kit to school. 


 

P.E.

Please ensure your child wears the appropriate kit on our allocated P.E. day

Pupils must wear:

  • Plain black/grey tracksuit bottoms/shorts,
  • plain white t-shirt,
  • A school-coloured (royal blue) sweatshirt/hoody,
  • Suitable footwear. 

Our P.E. day for this term is a Thursday

Reading

As a school, we have moved from using the Ginn reading scheme and have now introduced Oxford Reading Tree. 

We will now be sending Oxford Reading Tree books  home with pupils on Friday and MUST be returned to school on a Monday. 

Please try to listen to your child read as often as possible. Remember, 5 minutes each evening is better than 15 minutes once a week! Every time you listen to your child read, please ensure you record it in the yellow reading record book. 

 

A small sound and word (spellings too) file will be sent home with your child daily, along with their yellow reading record, Please return this to school every morning. 

 

Try to talk to your child about the book they are reading, and ask questions about the characters, the setting (where the story takes place) and the plot (what happens in the story), as well as asking them to make predictions about what they think might happen. Pupils' understanding of the text is as important as their ability to read it and we will continually focus on these skills throughout Year 2.

 

If a child does not return their reading book to school, they will not be able to have another reading book sent home, until it is returned or paid for.

Homework

Homework will be sent home every Friday in an exercise book. We ask for all homework to be completed by Monday and sent back into school

Please work with your child for them to complete their homework, but we kindly ask that pupils write their answers/responses themselves.

It is also important that pupils understand what they have written in their homework. So, if for example, they are asked to find information about something, they shouldn't simply copy information from the internet, but instead try to put it into their own words. 

Clothing & Personal Belongings

Please ensure that all items of clothing, as well as drawstring bags, packed lunch bags and water bottles are clearly labelled with your child's name.

 

Pupils should avoid bringing any unnecessary items into school.

 

We do not allow pupils to bring in bags/rucksacks etc, only their reading bag, water bottle and packed lunch bag/box (if not having a school lunch). If they need to, they can also use a drawstring bag.

Playtime Snacks


 

Pupils are only permitted to eat fruit or cereal bars at playtimes. 

Packed Lunches

As a school, we continuously encourage and promote healthy packed lunches.

Drinks

Pupils are only permitted to drink water throughout the school day. 

 

Please therefore ensure that if you are providing your child with a drink for use during the day, bottles are only filled with plain water (this does not include drinks with packed lunches).

 

At present, water fountains remain out of use. However, pupils can refill their water bottle from the classroom taps which are safe for drinking purposes.
