Every term we send a Parents as partners leaflet out. This outlines the learning for the term, including homework expectations, PE and Art days, as well as other necessary information. This information can also be seen on the Class’ termly pages.
In order for your child to learn well, they need to be good readers. It is expected that your child will read at least 3 times per week, but even better every day. They will need to record this in their planners including the page numbers read. Planners will be checked weekly.
Your child’s planner is our main way of communication. If you have a message for me, please prompt your child to hand their planner to me. Their planner contains their login details to different websites and any messages, homework reminders, etc. Please sign the planner weekly so that I know you have checked it. I also use Class Dojo so please make sure that you use the code that is in your child’s planner in order to sign up.
