Morning Routine and Home Time Routine
Children are welcome to come into the classroom as soon as the door is opened by a member of staff at 8:30 We encourage the children to be as independent as possible. When they have completed their morning routine of putting their coats, bottles and book bags away, they can choose a mindfulness activity.
At home time the children will stay sat on the carpet until we see you in the playground. If your child is going to be collected by someone other than yourself, then please let us know or give the school office a call.
Please read with your child as often as possible. You can use the books we send home from school or use books you have at home. In Term 2, once the children have started blending, we will read with them 2/3 times a week and this is the book they will bring home with them on a Friday. These books all have a star on the top right-hand corner so they can be easily identified. Following this, the children will then come home with another reading book from Monday to Friday. Reading for pleasure books will be changed every Wednesday. Remember to record all your reading in their Reading Record Book.
Each week the children will get the sounds we have learnt that week in their Phonics books to practice at home.
For wet weather activities and welly walks, we ask that your child brings in a pair of wellies that are named. These will be kept on the welly rack outside our classroom door.
Snack and water bottles
Please can you provide your child with a clearly named plastic water bottle to use throughout the day. The children can refill their bottles from the tap in the classroom. We will also provide your child with a mid-morning snack of fresh fruit. If you have signed up to Cool Milk, then your child will also have a carton of milk to drink in the morning.
Please feel free to contact us on class dojo. We will respond as soon as we are able to within school hours but at times this will be before or after school. We are always available to talk to on the door if you have any questions or queries. If there is anything that could affect your child's day and you feel we need to be aware, then please let us know.
Please see Class Dojo, the school website or our newsletters for important dates.
