Holly Class Information
Updated September 2017
|PE Sessions||Thursday||Please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school everyday. PE bags are sent home every holiday giving parents an opportunity to wash and check that their child’s kit still fits them. Please ensure daps are provided for the summer terms 5 & 6.|
|Toast Money||Monday||Please ensure that toast money is handed in on Mondays in a separate envelope to any other money with your child’s name on – 50p for a whole week.|
|Reading Books||Every Day||Reading books and records need to be in school every day. Reading books will be changed on Fridays.|
|Key Words (From Term 3)||Every Day||These need to be in school every day and will be checked once a week (usually Fridays). A new set of words will be sent home when the children are confident at reading all of their words by sight without hesitation.|
|Homework (From Term 2)|
Children need to practise their reading and maths skills as near to every day as possible (5x minimum). Reading can be their reading book from school or books that you have at home. Children can retell stories that are familiar to them and practise their story language.
At the beginning of the year, all parents were given a pack including ideas for practising maths at home. The expectations of what your child should be able to achieve by the end of the year are detailed in their reading record. After Christmas, your child will have a copy of their maths targets sent home which you can also work on. Any progress they make towards achieving their targets can be recorded in the reading record books. Children’s maths skills can be developed in many ways and counting objects on the way home or playing board games can be an excellent starting point.
|Me Box||Fridays||Children have the opportunity to present their ‘ME Box’ to the class. A letter detailing when it is your child’s turn is sent out in advance.|
|Out of school achievements (From Term 3)||Friday||Certificates, medals and awards can be sent to school every Friday for Mr Foss to present in our celebration assembly.|
|WOW Slips||On Going||Parents can send in information about important and exciting achievements that may have happened at home, which the children would like to share with school. This information will also be put into their profiles. Blank WOW slips can be obtained from Miss Turner or Mrs Nelmes.|
