Things to try at home:
Please remember to continue to read at home with your child and make use of Times Table Rockstars and Numbots.
Here are some things you might want to do at home:
Due to current circumstances, please only bring essential items to school on a daily basis: Reading book, spelling book, reading diary, homework books and a lunch box (if not having hot school meals).
Please provide your child with a refillable water bottle that is taken home daily for washing before returning to school the next day.
Please ensure your child has a coat and any additional items of clothing such as: gloves, scarf and hat to keep them warm outside on the playground. As we are having to keep windows open in the classrooms due to current circumstances, additional items of clothing under school uniform may be necessary for keeping your child warm at school.
