Dinner Menu 

 Hot dinners will be starting this week. Please have a look at the menu below or click on it to download a copy. We are starting on week 3. 

Home Readers and Learning Folder

This week, everyone will have a Home School Learning log and a Home Reader.  Please bring these to school daily.  We will endeavour to read with your child every day and will change this book if necessary.  Some books require the adult to read sections and for your child to join in with the speech bubbles.  Encourage your child to look at the pictures and sound out letters they know in words such as 'man' to read aloud.  Question your child on the characters, setting and story. Please record daily reading in the home/school log.  Your child can earn certificates and prizes for reading at home.

The Learning Folder will be updated when we learn a new sound and what it looks like. It will also include a small letter card (add this to your word tin). Please keep this folder in your book bag every day.  Practise sounding out these letters using 'pure sounds'.  A reminder can be found here: how to say the sounds .  Your child should be able to see the letter and instantly know what sound it makes. 

The yellow letters in the Learning Folder can be traced over with fingers and then pencil to understand how to form the letter.  We hold a pencil in a tripod grip and sit at a table.  Every letter starts on the line where we "smile in" to the letter before we "smile out" at the end.  Underneath the letters is plenty of space for your child to practise on their own.  If your child is finding this hard (which is completely normal at this stage), practise on a larger scale; you could write in mud with a stick, using paint, shaving foam, in rice or sand. Bath crayons are great, as is chalk outside.   Practise using an 'air' pencil (using your finger to draw it in the air) or use water and a paintbrush to draw them on the floor or wall.  Children will master their handwriting when their muscles have developed  on a larger scale before it will transfer to the small, fine motor skills required for handwriting.   Practising a 'swishing' movement (e.g. with a magic wand, stick or ribbon stick) will support muscle development for mastering the 'lead in' to each letter we write. However, do not feel that they must be completed daily!

Please do not keep water bottles in book bags.  There is a charge for lost or damaged books.
