INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
PE for Foundation Stage is Wednesday. Please ensure your child comes into school wearing their PE kit on this day. It is important that your child does not come to school wearing jewellery or earrings on this day.

As the year progresses children will get reading books and homework books to take home. 
Book bags are requested to be brought to school daily.

There are many ways you can support your child at home. Here are some suggestions about how you could help:
• Encourage your child to talk about what they have learnt at school.
• Link learning to real life experiences - encourage them to write shopping lists, read signs around the environment, count out money etc.
• Listen to your child reading – Please try to read on a daily basis with your child and ask them questions about what they have read.
• Encourage your child to practise and learn their spellings – discuss spelling patterns or rules.
• Talk about your child’s homework – discuss the work and ask your child to explain it to you.
