Welcome back - we hope you have had a fantastic break!

Important information.
 
Reading
Reading is a vital part of your child's education and will support them in all subjects, as well as their futures.
Please aim to read with your child at least 3 times a week and record in their yellow reading records. 
As a class we are starting a reading challenge and children will collect stickers for reading at home 3 times every week.  Certificates will also be given out each term for our star readers.
The class will also have time in our library on Friday afternoons.
 
PE
PE will be on a Monday and Thursday this term so please ensure your child has a full, warm and named PE kits with appropriate shoes in school.
On Thursdays we will be attending Gymnastic sessions at the Forest of Dean Gymnastic centre, starting on 4th November for 6 weeks. 
Please make sure your child comes to school in their PE kit on Thursdays.
 
Homework 
Homework will be sent home on a Tuesday to be returned on a Friday - this will include a spellings and maths activity.
New homework challenges will also be sent home (see below) - these are your choice when or if to complete.  Children are welcome to bring in any additional work they complete and show the class their amazing achievements.
 
Thanks again for all your continued support.
As always please email or leave a note in your child's link book if you have any concerns.
