Hello to Vixen Class, who are some Y2s, all Y3s and some Y4s.
At the moment, P.E will be on a MONDAY and a FRIDAY this Autumn term, therefore all Vixen pupils need to come already dressed in their P.E kit. Like all classes, we will NOT be changing clothes in school.
Please note, all P.E will be OUTSIDE due to Covid Safety guidance, so please ensure you have kit suitable for the outdoor weather.
Our topic this term is ‘Location, Location, Location’. More information will follow.
Please could ALL children remember to return their reading books to school by THURSDAY please. Thank-you.
See attachment at the top.
We have been learning some times tables. Please support your child with these times tables. We have covered x1, x10, x2, x5, x11, x3, x4 and x 9. Your child may not do all of these, but these ones have been covered so far. Using their knowledge of these times tables, they have also learnt about division as well. The 2 need to be linked and I often refer to these as happy families.
20 divided by 2= 10, 20 divided by 10=2
I hope this helps. Further times tables will be taught at a later date. Thank-you for your support.
Footwear, coat and extra clothes
Just to remind all parents to make sure your child has 2 pairs of shoes/boots in school because our risk assessment has specified for separate areas at lunchtime, and both our fields and the Millennium Garden get very muddy during Autumn/Winter. Please ensure your child has a suitable coat because again, we will be out in all weathers, as this is best practice for Covid protection. Also, as windows and doors have to be open as directed by the risk assessment, please ensure your child has extra layers of clothing on to keep warm.
We will be letting children take ONE reading book home per week and when returned , this book will be quarantined for 72 hours. Please note, we cannot operate the same reading book provision as we did pre Lockdown, it is just not possible. The children will pick their own choice reading book from an area allocated to them by myself or a TA. Your child may keep this book for at least a minimum of one school week and then it needs to be returned. Your child will not be able to pick another book until the first one has been returned.
Your child has the opportunity twice a week in school to pick a book for their tray only. They are also heard read in the English/Phonics Groups up to 3 times a week. These books do not go home.
