Ideally, children will be reading nightly, please could parents/guardians sign their child's diary upon completion of any reading of their reading book. This would help us to keep track of any reading outside of school and the children will receive points towards their bookworm certificates. In addition to reading together, your child is still able to access Oxford Reading Buddy and TT Rockstars.
We have prepared some homework activities for your son/daughter to do. Please bring any work into school so that we can share it and celebrate your child's achievement with them (following Covid regulations, we will put work aside and look at it a few days after it is brought in).
The children will participate in two PE sessions a week. We will endeavour to do PE outside as much as possible in this first half term, so please ensure that your child has appropriate PE kit, taking into consideration the weather. Currently, children will need to attend school in their PE kits, on the days they have PE. The Woodpecker Class PE days are: Tuesday / Thursday.
It is essential that children have trainers for PE. If our lesson is based on the field, there is the potential that your child’s trainers may get muddy. Therefore, it may be sensible for them to have an additional pair of shoes which can be worn whilst inside the school building.
For other Science learning, children can participate in fun, practical activities. If you type 'fun science activities for kids' into your browser, you will find lots of websites with many 'kitchen cupboard science' activities for them to do. A couple of these websites are linked below, though there are many more:
